If you’ve ever seen a glass tile backsplash or a glass tile shower it’s unlikely that you’ve forgotten it. Glass tile is available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors and has gained a reputation for instantly improving the visual appeal of spaces.
Perhaps the greatest advantage offered by glass tile is the ability to personalize a space. Here we’ll be discussing a few of the numerous benefits that glass tile offers. We encourage you to read on, and to consider adding a bit of glass tile to your Ellicott City home.
Glass Tile Advantages
Variety—Glass tile is available in a number of shapes, sizes, and levels of translucency. Consequently, it offers a great deal of design versatility. It’s really up to the homeowner to decide how they want to use glass tile. If anything, the space at hand may limit what you can do with this versatile material, but not glass tile itself.
Resistant to Mold and Mildew Buildup—Unlike ceramic or stone tile, glass tile is resistant to mold and mildew buildup. This is a significant advantage, especially if you’re looking to install tile in an area that experiences daily moisture—such as a shower.
Glass Tile Precautions
Difficult to Install—Glass tile tends to be fragile before it’s installed, which makes for a difficult installation process. Additionally, any mistakes that take place during the installation process tend to stick out because glass tile is often used to make specific designs or patterns. Luckily, the design experts at Floor Coverings International Howard County will take care of your glass tile installation from start to finish, so this isn’t something you’ll have to worry about.
