In the past, only the wealthy could afford glass tile in their homes. This all changed with improvements to the production process during the earlier part of the 1900s that made these tiles more affordable to the middle class. Toward the end of the century, resurgence in the uses for glass tile in the home has once again increased in popularity, especially those made from recycled glass.
Today, glass tiles are available in all colors, shapes, sizes and forms. Most often, these tiles are used in bathroom and kitchen applications, including shower walls, backsplashes and countertops, to provide a striking alternative to porcelain or ceramic tiles.
Glass captures and reflects light like no other tiling materials. This makes it an excellent choice for rooms where you want to add a little sparkle in combination with ceramic and metal surfaces.
Sheets of glass mosaic tiles can be applied to walls, floors and other surfaces throughout the home. These tiles are extremely durable and stain resistant, which makes them a great choice for high-traffic areas such as entryways.
