Live Like Royalty with Glass Mosaics

Have you ever thought about using glass mosaic tiles to decorate your kitchen, bathroom or swimming pool? Glass mosaics date back to 300 years before the birth of Christ. Historically, they were used to decorate the walls, floors and windows in castles, built by great kings and emperors, as well as in churches and temples in Asia, Africa and Europe.

Although artisans began making glass mosaic tiles almost two and a half eons ago, it was only in the late twentieth century that advancements in the manufacturing process made glass mosaic tiles affordable to more families and smaller businesses. It also began an expansion of the types of spaces where glass mosaic tiles could be applied.

Today, homeowners can search on the Internet to order custom-made glass mosaic tiles for use in their swimming pools, kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, staircases or vestibules. They are also used in hotels, restaurants, corporate boardrooms, executive dining rooms and public spaces.

Glass mosaic tiles are both beautiful and practical. Glass is incandescent so it can be used to brighten a dimly lit room, illuminating a bathroom, kitchen, living room, staircase or vestibule with beautiful, bright colors. Glass is also non-porous, so it is water and stain-resistant and can be easily cleaned with a simple mixture of water and vinegar.

There are more than two thousand years worth of reasons to apply glass mosaic tiles to rooms in your home. Mosaics are beautiful and they make your home more elegant. They are practical yet they make a strong statement about who you are and what you have achieved. And, as the saying goes, your home is your palace.
