5 Reasons to Choose Glass Backsplash

Jun 1, 2017

With so many options on the market, choosing a backsplash can often be overwhelming. However, one buzzed about trend that isn’t going anywhere any time soon is the realm of glass. There are really no limitations when it comes to size, color and pattern options. Plus, cleaning is a cinch. Interior designers love them because of the luminous quality that adds a shimmer and radiance to the finished design.

If you’re still unsure, maybe these five reasons will change your mind:

1. Options, options, options

Like granite or quartz, glass backsplashes can come as a single piece, that is cut specifically to fit the space you want. However, glass can also be much smaller shapes and sizes, so you can find tiles ranging from large rectangles or squares to itty-bitty mosaic pieces. This gives you a great deal of flexibility when it comes to layout your patterns and texture, therefore, you get exactly what you want.

2. Clear and opaque

Glass tiles are available in clear or opaque colors. This brings a whole different level of design-ability when creating your final look. More clear tiles have a luminous surface that is rarely found in more traditional tile stones. With glass tiles, you can find shimmer to echo the natural crystals that comprise countertop materials, and almost any color is available so you have more room to mix and match.

3. Infinite pattern options

Mosaic work has been used for years and years. You can easily use glass tiles to create your own pattern and create any design you want. Geometric patterns are a popular option. Many pattern options are already created for you, and are applied using easy-to-install sheets, making the design/installation process even easier. There’s no need to compromise.

4. Eco-friendly

If you are considering sustainable options, you can find glass tiles that are made using pre- and post- consumer products. Many stores will sell recycled glass tiles and mosaics that you can use into your design. You can get the design you want while helping save the planet!

5. Ease of maintenance

Once installed, maintaining your class tiles is a breeze. Because glass is a non-porous surface, nothing can “sink in” like in other surfaces. All you need is a spray bottle of glass cleaner and you’re good to go.
