What are glass tiles? Glass tiles have been used in mosaics since 2500 BC. The barrier to create glass tiles has always been high due to the high temperatures needed to melt glass and the skills needed to master cooling the glass to perfection. Some modern glass making technologies have made this process simpler which has allowed the glass tile industry to flourish since the 1990’s. Glass tiles are popular in pools, kitchens, spas, and bathrooms due it’s high cleanser moisture resistance.

A backsplash in a kitchen, whether behind a sink or stove, is a great place to showcase something more than just a painted wall. The trend of glass tile is a fun way to accent a kitchen and bring a sense of style to your home. Glass tiles are great for kitchens that lack natural light because the brightness that reflects from the glass can help brighten an area.
