Complement your design

The interesting thing about glass mosaic tile is that you’re not limited to any one particular style, pattern, or any one specific size or combination for that matter. There are countless ways you can mix, match and blend glass tiles to complement your design and decor of your existing space. Zero boundaries.

This photo below features a sea glass tile that is almost clear. This particular white glass tile is 2 inches by 8 inches and provides a very clean look, especially when used with white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. This tile tends to reflect more light and provide a unique 3 dimensional look when starring right into it.

Glass tile has been around for centuries, but never in the variety of styles, colors and design options we see today. They truly provide a remarkable depth that can attract your sight attention immediately and trap you.

How to use glass mosaics

The cool thing about glass mosaics, is that you can use them in several interesting ways, and you are by no means locked into covering entire walls with them!

Full backsplash

If you do have a simple, minimalist kitchen, with very light or warm colors, you can create an added punch by covering your entire splashback area with glass mosaics. The above photo shows this layout option, except these cabinets are darker, so the backsplash doesn’t “pop-out” as much, and sort of blends in with the cabinets, but still provides a nice traditional and contemporary look.

Backsplash accents

You also have the option of using glass mosaics to create accents in your splash back. If you have a wall that you want to set as an interest point, you can cover it with mosaics creating a full accent wall. If you can add lighting under the cabinets, even better! This will really make your back splash stand out.

Backsplash Borders

Parts and pieces of glass mosaics are also commonly used to create borders around a special point of interest, for example, to surround a specially hand crafted or custom created tile that you want people’s eyes to focus in on.

Shower wall accents

Of course this is another way to bring elegance to a shower, by creating a 4 to 6 inch glass mosaic accent around eye-level. This accent can become much more prominent if illuminated with light from the ceiling (sometimes this set up is possible for home owners). The goal here is to provide ideas.
