Tarpon Springs TileInstalling glass tile in your bathroom or kitchen is a beautiful and unique addition any home! Glass tile is generally used as a backsplash or is incorporated with other tile flooring such as ceramic to create a fun design. It adds a contemporary, sleek, and colorful look, and is also customizable. If you’re considering using glass tile in your Tarpon Springs home, the experts at Floor Coverings International East Lake share what you need to know below!

Why Glass Tile?

  • Customizable: Glass tiles are made in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns. You can even get glass tiles that range in different levels of transparency for a unique look. Homeowners are able to create a one of a kind look that they will love for many years to come. Unlike simpler tiles, glass tiles can be used to create a backsplash that becomes the centerpiece of a kitchen or bathroom.
  • Durable: Glass tiles are very durable and easy to maintain. Just wipe off the tiles with a cleaner or damp towel as needed. The tiles are also resistant to mold and mildew.

Tarpon Springs TileAlso Note That…

  • Cost: While glass tiles are beautiful, they do come at a price. Compared to ceramic or stone tile, glass tile does tend to be pricier. However, there are ways to still use glass tile and keep costs down. For example, you could primarily use a cheaper tile (like porcelain) with glass tile as an accent. Another way would be to create a backsplash that doesn’t span an entire kitchen or extend far up or down a bathroom wall.
  • Installation: Glass tiles are very fragile, so installation can be a bit tricky. Since they are often used to create a specific pattern, any small mistakes in the arrangement tend to stick out. Instead of trying to install it yourself, rest easy knowing that our experienced team at Floor Coverings International East Lake will take care of the whole process for you.
