Glass mosaic tiles are often used sparingly in homes, generally as edging or to break up larger tiled areas. You can use glass mosaic tiles as a feature on their own, and I think you’ll agree that this photo displays how effective it can be as a feature wall.
Glass mosaic tiles have many applications, and being made from glass have all the properties that glass delivers, particularly when it comes to general cleaning and long-term maintenance.
What you won’t be short on when it comes to glass mosaic tiles is choice of color and patterns – they are virtually endless. In this photo, you can see how the browns and creams in the glass mosaic tiles have been used to coordinate the larger wall tiles, the vanity unit, the floor tiles, and even the feet on the bath tub. The overall effect is stunning and it is the glass mosaic tiles that have brought each of the individual units together to create the perfect end result.
Glass is one of the most impervious materials available. This is one of the main reasons why it is valued as a food container. Glass won’t absorb smells nor can it be easily stained, and when staining does occur it is only a layer on the surface. Some strong acids can etch glass, however, these acids are not normally found in the home.
Glass mosaic tiles have those same properties, so cleaning them is easy – often, just a wipe over with a damp cloth is all you need. If there is a build up of dirt, grime or scum (such as soap scum), you can use stronger cleaners (or even steam cleaning) without fear of causing any damage.
