Today, many homeowners are choosing glass tiles as part of their swimming pool installations. And glass pool tiles are an excellent choice for many reasons:

  • They are non-permeable, making them water-resistant
  • The tiles are frost-proof (also heat, fire, and UV resistant)
  • Glass tile resists sudden temperature changes
  • Glass pool tile is low maintenance and has a long lifespan
  • The beauty of glass in a swimming pool setting is undeniable
  • Glass pool tiles can increase the resale value of your home

But that isn’t the entire story. Glass mosaic tile is also well-known for its versatility.

Its outside uses are not limited to the pool. They are equally popular in courtyards or on raised walls, steps, and benches. Some homeowners fashion the tiles into a mosaic pattern and use them on an external wall as a stunning focal point. In many ways, adding glass tile to an outdoor surface is one of the best ways to protect the overall structure of your property.

So if glass tiles are impervious to the elements and are stylish and durable in almost any exterior application, why limit them to the great outdoors?

Mosaic Glass tiles: At home in any home

All of those qualities that make glass pool tiles a smart choice for your pool and patio are the same ones that make glass a perfect fit inside your home. Here are some of the interior areas in which glass tiles can provide beauty and utility

The Bathroom

Flooring: Glass tiles in a flooring application provide stylish beauty that is resistant to stains, mold, mildew, and chemical damage. They are durable and resistant to cracking, which makes them an excellent choice for bathroom flooring.

Showers and tubs: Glass mosaic tile is often chosen for shower walls, although they can be installed strictly as a border. Since it provides added grip, glass tile is often used for shower seats and inset soap shelves, as well as for the flooring.

Vanities: The uses for glass tiles around bathroom vanities, including as backsplash and countertops, are only limited by your imagination.

In the kitchen

Whether you’re planning to install a new kitchen or want to update an existing one, you probably think that glass tiles would be perfect to use as a backsplash. And you would be right!

For all those reasons that make it right for the outdoors or in the bathroom—durability, easy cleaning, versatility in styles, moisture resistance—glass tiles are the right choice for your kitchen backsplash.

But you might not realize that those same glass tiles in the backsplash can be continued to the countertop surface for a unique look that embodies all the advantages of glass tile.
