The popularity of glass tile is on the rise due to the increasing number of design options available to Eagan homeowners. Glass tile comes in striking colors and instantly adds a touch of modernity to a room, and its reflective quality helps make spaces feel larger and brighter. Here, Floor Coverings International Dakota County will discuss some of the benefits and considerations if you decide to use it in your home.
Glass tile is a great way to enhance a kitchen backsplash or add beauty to your bathroom. It comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors allowing you to be as creative as possible in the ways you use it. Its smooth surface reflects light and helps brighten a room, and its translucence adds extra depth and intrigue to your design. Glass tiles are non-porous and don’t allow mold and mildew to grow, making them ideal in rooms with more exposure to water. Epoxy grouts are often paired with glass tile for their similar non-absorbent and non-porous qualities that help reduce the risk of mold in a high-moisture environment. These grouts come in a wide range of colors giving you even more creative options for your design. What’s more, glass tiles are all natural and often made of recycled glass making them eco-friendly.
Things to Consider
Compared to other materials, glass tiles often come with a higher price tag. To keep costs down, it’s common to reserve glass tile for accents and backsplashes rather than entire walls or showers, or to combine it with less expensive ceramic tile. Another drawback is that it’s difficult to install. Any imperfections from the installation process tend to be more apparent than other types of tile, and although durable once installed, glass tiles are quite fragile before installation. Luckily, our team of professionals is here to help!
