Glass tile has become one of the most popular choices for kitchen and bathroom redesigns in recent years and for good reason.
Glass tiles are easy to install and even easier to care for and keep clean. They also work hard to protect surfaces in your home from water spills and they add a touch of class to every room where you decorate with them. Glass tile is also an easy way to make a big difference in your home upgrade project at an affordable price.
An easy way to create a professional designer look using glass tile is to combine glass tiles and stone tiles. Backsplash tiles would look especially lovely in the kitchen or a bathroom with the two textures of glass and stone gracing the same wall. Glass and stone tiles can also be applied to other surfaces such as a countertop or floor or outdoor applications around a pool or outdoor kitchen or eating area.
Imagine walking into your kitchen with a wonderful new rustic feel almost like you were outdoors by mixing up glistening glass tiles with earthy stone tiles. Backsplash glass tiles are fantastic all by themselves as well. When the light hits glass tiles, they just light up the room with a shimmer and sparkle that you will fall in love with.
There are so many design layouts that a person could come up with to incorporate glass tiles and stone tiles. Backsplash tile can come alive when you use a variety of colors, shapes and textures.
You might want to create a unique pattern that calls attention to a colorful medallion in the center of a wall or floor using the many colors and textures and styles available in glass and stone tiles. Or you could alternate dark and light colors and rough and smooth textures in designing your kitchen or bathroom backsplash for a simple classical look.
Since glass and stone tiles are both very long lasting and durable and provide great protection for surfaces subject to getting wet, you will find many places in and around your home where they can be installed to add stunning beauty and very practical use.
