Glass Mosaic: The Underappreciated Tile

glass mosaic wall tileOne of the most versatile yet least often used floor and wall tiles is glass mosaic. You can get creative with glass mosaic tile, but I think many people are intimidated by it and aren’t quite sure how they can incorporate it into their residential spaces.

Glass mosaic has been around for a long time. It’s been in use for more than 2,000 years. The Byzantines were known for decorating their churches with it, which accounts for many of the ornate designs of churches during that era. Today, you’ll often see it used in swimming pools and bathrooms. You’ll also often see it used as mural wall art.

While there are plenty of artful uses for glass mosaic, it also has its practical applications.

For starters, glass mosaic can add a touch of glamour and beauty to your home or office. Secondly, glass is a natural anti-mold, which is why you’ll often see it used in swimming pools and as backsplashes around vanities and kitchen sinks. Glass mosaic is easy to care for and won’t mildew.

Glass mosaic is also a flexible material, making it easy to work with.

When you add beauty and elegance to easy maintenance and flexibility, glass mosaic becomes a very attractive material for floors, walls, countertops, backsplashes, and any area of your home or office you want to enhance.
