One of the most exciting tile types we offer is glass mosaic tiles for the kitchen. You can use these exclusively or as a border or special feature in the kitchen to really jazz up the space. And they have great functional properties too!
Using glass mosaic tiles in your kitchen immediately elevates the design and adds a special flair to the space. The translucent shine of the glass in the delicate tiles draws the eye, attracting attention and exuding quality and class. Glass reflects the light, adding brightness and personality to the room. The use of small tiles of different transparencies alongside one another creates a wonderful texture that adds depth and warmth to you home.
Mosaic tiles give you more design flexibility and the opportunity to make the space your own. For example, you could use understated, muted grey or beige colours to create a subtle, stylish surface. You might want exclusively glass mosaic tiles, or alternatively you can add a border along the top or middle of larger tiles.
Glass mosaic tiles have all the useful properties of a normal tile in the kitchen – namely being durable, long-lasting and easy to clean. But as a non-porous material, glass is particularly resistant to staining and any damage from chemicals. This makes them ideal for an environment such as the kitchen, which can be moist and exposed to various oils and chemicals. For day-to- day cleaning, all they need is a quick wipe with a damp cloth to remove any dust or superficial marks. Glass shows up dirt fairly easily, so you can see as soon as they need cleaning. In addition to these advantages, the small size of glass mosaic tiles makes them easy to cut and perfect for placing around power points and stoves in the kitchen. They are fixed to a mesh backing, which also makes them an ideal choice for uneven walls in an older house, for example.
It takes around half the energy to make a glass tile compared to a ceramic tile, which means that using glass mosaic tiles is a more eco-friendly option. So for all you eco-warriors out there, this presents yet another reason to choose glass mosaic tiles. Attractive, practical – and better for the environment!
