Glass is one of those man-made products that has become extremely versatile. Glass is used for windows and can be produced to bullet proof standards. Glass is also used to store food stuffs as it is totally water proof and won’t readily take on stains or odors. Transfer those properties to glass tiles and you have the perfect finish for areas that are frequently wet. Glass mosaic tiles take those properties one step further by producing tiles that are not just water and stain proof. They are also brilliantly colored, textured and patterned.
One of the real benefits of glass mosaic tiles is that you can create a design that truly fits into your decor. Glass mosaic tiles can be used on floors and walls and as backsplashes in both residential and commercial settings. Glass mosaic tiles work well with other tiles, helping to create a feature or to break up a single pattern.
When combined with lighting, glass mosaic tiles come to life, reflecting light throughout a room. Light also turns a dull wall in a shimmering, glowing masterpiece that looks great, often adding value to a home. Glass mosaic tiles are easy to maintain and can be cleaned using a wide range of products, both commercial and residential. Glass mosaic tiles can also be cleaned using steam thus doing away with any chemicals – ideal for those who are sensitive to cleaning products. In most cases, a little warm water is all that is required to keep your tiles clean – polish with a dry soft cloth and their brilliant gleam will return.’
