In most cases, glass is a rather shiny substance. You can reduce that shine using techniques such as etching, and through the use of paints. Of course, dirt and dust can diminish the glossy look of glass as well. When glass is made into glass mosaic tiles, the finished effect can be startling, especially if lighting is used to effect.
For those who are looking for a tile that is hard wearing, water-resistant and easy to clean, then glass ticks every point. Glass is one of those substances that is virtually impervious to all liquids. Glass will not absorb colors or odors easily and comes up sparkling after a simple wash.
Like all glass (for example, windows), the occasional use of methylated spirits and newspaper works a treat to remove oil and grease, fingerprints, and any other grubby marks. Glass mosaic tiles are often made from recycled glass so their use is environmentally friendly as well. One problem you won’t have with glass mosaic tiles is coordination. You can find glass mosaic tiles in such a wide range of colors and finishes that every style is surely covered.
