Glass tile has been used as early as 2500 B.C. by the Byzantine empire. Glass remained quite expensive, only available for the wealthy, until the 1920s with the Art Deco movement. With the advances in technology, glass is both a glamorous and affordable option for your home. The only problem you may have is choosing which one to use. Floor & Decor has over 275 styles of glass tile.
Mix Mosaic Glass and Stone
Can’t decide between glass and stone? Why choose? Get the mix mosaic glass and stone tile and you get both. I truly love this tile when paired with stone floor tile. The coordinating stone pieces in this tile coordinate nicely with the natural stone tile.
Glass Purist? Choose Pure Glass
This shiny glass tile has a modern look and feel to it. It comes in mesh mount if you prefer smaller pieces or brick pieces. Glass tiles naturally reflect light and can instantly brighten a room, making the space feel more inviting. Pure Tile is available in beiges, grays and blues. Besides a kitchen or bathroom think about a prettying up a wet bar or putting this tile around your fireplace.
Want to add a bit of texture to your wall? Do it with wavy glass tile. There are several styles of the “basket weave” look, which is certainly appealing. I’m a huge fan of the rectangular wavy tiles, which come in Red Storm and Night and Day.
