Glass mosaic tiles can be used in a wide range of applications. They can be used as floor tiles, however, they will be slippery when wet. Their main use is as wall tiles, particularly in wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Those with an artistic flair can use glass mosaic tiles to break up a single pattern tile, or to frame areas of interest.
You don’t have to use the one tile type when planning floor or wall tile projects. You can use ceramic wall tiles in your kitchens, and still add a glass mosaic backsplash. This will add color to your tiled wall rather than having the one single color and pattern tiled wall.
Traditionally, glass mosaic tiles were used to frame entrance ways, to decorate outside areas (particularly along the top of low brick walls), and as backsplashes in kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. Today’s clever interior designer has found more uses including framing wall mirrors, creating interesting designs in walls, and for those who are really artistic, creating actual wall pictures. That latter activity is painstaking as the tiles are broken up into smaller glass tiles and glued individually – still, the end result is fascinating.
If you want to add a splash of color to a wall or floor, then glass mosaic tiles should be considered. They are long wearing, easy to clean, and being made from glass, they are water, stain and odor proof. Glass mosaic tiles are easy to install and can be used in conjunction with most other wall and floor tiles.
