Glass tiles have been a major aesthetic component in homes all across the world. We’ve seen the beauty of accent glass tiles as backsplashes in our kitchens and we love how distinct they make our shower walls look. Since glass tiles are extremely versatile they can be applied in almost any area of the home.
Glass tiles can be purchased in all kinds of finishes including opaque and reflective glasses. Since glass reflects light and can visually expand a space and it can keep a room brighter for an extended period of time it has several advantages. If you think you’ve exhausted the ways you can use glass tiles in your home, here are some additional ideas.
Designing the Hearth
Make the fireplace the focal point of the room by decking the hearth out in mosaic glass tiles. The hearth may be the last place you thought seeing glass tiles but it makes for a durable and simply breathtaking surrounding. Imagine watching the light from the fire dance in the glass. To make this look unique you should invest in tiles with different color blends and designs.
Glass tiles are ideal for the hearth because the maintenance process is relatively simple. It doesn’t stain, it can be easily wiped clean and when grouped together glass is extremely durable.
Wrap Around Accent Wall
Take the backsplash concept a bit further by extending glass accent tiles across the entire wall. If you’re feeling adventurous you can carry out this concept in an area other than the kitchen or bathroom. You can create a mural across the length of the wall. Don’t limit the design to the traditional subway pattern. Instead, you can create a transitional look by spinning the tiles. Use glass tile that complements the decor of room for an outstanding effect.
