As much as you may love your home, there comes a time when you decide to refresh things and modernize your style. When you look for ways to add personality to your home, consider infusing your designs with glass mosaic tiles. Glass has been part of interior design for millennia and over the centuries the crafting process has been steadily improved. Nowadays, glass can be found in a wide assortment of interesting shapes, sizes, colours, finishes, and styles, allowing for a guaranteed unique look.
Ideas for Glass Mosaic Tiles in a Modern Lifestyle
To help get the ball rolling, here are a few ideas on how you can put glass tiles to work in your home.
Backsplashes, whether at the kitchen counter or bathroom sink, can be great ways to add an extra touch of personal colour to a room. You can use mosaic tiles to create a segue from the furniture surface to the wall, blend the two together, or even make a bold band to clearly mark the separation.
Bathroom Tile Installation
The great thing about glass mosaic tiles is that they can serve as the sole tile of a surface or be integrated into other forms of wall and floor tile. For instance, you could surround a mirror in mosaic tile to place the mirror in the middle of a glass wave, a mosaic flower, the eye of a fish, or any other sort of pattern. On the floor, mosaic can be used to create novel shapes and patterns or to border and frame your fixtures.
Glass mosaic can be a beautiful way to mark your shower against the rest of your bathroom. If you use the right kind of glass tile, you can better direct light through the shower or create stylish shimmers that makes water dance across its surface.
Mosaic Staircase Walls
The walls along your staircase are a novel place to put glass mosaic tile designs since they allow you to craft larger images and designs that flow along the incline. Things like mirrored mosaic tiles can help create bold, unique impressions on guests or you can try making an actual scene that plays out as people go up and down the stairs.
A World of Variety Awaits
It is very hard to describe just how much variety exists among glass mosaic tiles. Whether you want them for your wall or floor tile, glass mosaic comes in countless shapes, sheens, colours, and transparencies that offers immense creativity. Some lines, like Onix glass mosaics, can come in clustered squares or hexes in an assortment of colour and patterns. Or you can turn to Poco Brick for an elegant brick-shape that uses highly polished glass in a tight formation to make shimmering backsplashes. Accent walls can be made using the novel shape of the Lantern tile, and Accord goes a step further and mixes in marble for a majestic combination effect. These examples just scratch the surface of what glass mosaic tile is capable of, but it should hopefully get your imagination churning.
