Glass Tiles until several years ago were uncommon and not readily available to the average homeowner remodeling their kitchen. Today one finds glass tiles and glass mosaic tile more and more common and even a main feature of many tile stores and home improvement centers. This is because homeowners have discovered the beauty and individuality that can be achieved by adding glass mosaic tiles to an upgraded kitchen.
Glass mosaic tiles in the kitchen are a wonderful upgrade choice and are a perfect selection for areas such as a kitchen backsplash, an accent wall off of the kitchen, islands and wet bars or as a rear wall decoration in a walk-in kitchen pantry.
Because of the wide range of colors available with glass mosaic tile, homeowners really have the chance to express their individuality through color which is something not really possible with new cabinets or a light fixture or even many other types of tile choices. In addition to color, glass mosaic tiles are available in many shapes and sizes ranging from as small as ½” x ½” on up to 3″ x 3″ when larger size tiles will be supplied as loose pieces. Glass mosaic tiles come mesh-mounted which makes installation straight forward and easier than installing individual tiles.
Glass mosaic tiles are made from the same glass material used in making the windows in a home so glass tiles have the benefit of being very durable, long lasting, and easy to clean. Different than other popular kitchen materials such as stone or granite, glass mosaic tiles if they get dirty can simply be wiped up with a damp sponge or cloth and the mess goes away. Simple as that. This is among the many reasons that glass mosaic tiles have become a popular kitchen material choice for homeowners across the country.
