Important Tips for Choosing Glass Tiles for a Kitchen Backsplash


Important Tips for Choosing Glass Tiles for a Kitchen Backsplash

1. Shine some light on the subject
While any glass is good for small and dark kitchens, you want to give special consideration as to your choice for a small and dark kitchen. Opt for a bright color that will keep the space open, for example, if you prefer earth tones for a kitchen, avoid dark browns and russet reds and choose light tans and even shades of orange and yellow. If you have a modern design in your kitchen, choose a shade like turquoise or sea foam. If you’re unsure of the right shade, opt for bright white, but avoid any dark color for a dark and small kitchen shower glass
It’s also good to choose large tiles and even large sections of glass for the backsplash of a small and dark kitchen. This is because smaller tiles may look too busy in the room whereas large tiles or large sections of glass can make a small wall seem longer or larger Frameless Glass Shower Doors

2. Go mosaic for a DIY route
If you want to install glass for a backsplash yourself, look for mosaic tiles. These are glued to a mesh backing that makes it easy to install large sections at one time. You’ll be less likely to install the tiles crooked or off-center when you choose mosaic tiles for self-installation. Any larger tile section will be easier for the person who wants to do it themselves.
If you don’t want to opt for mosaic, choose large glass sections rather than small individual tiles. You’ll need to cut fewer tiles and it will be easier to ensure they’re level when you install large sections rather than small tiles frameless glass shower

3. Cater to your budget
If you’re on a very tight budget, opt for some cheaper tiles that you work in with the glass. Ceramic is usually more affordable than glass, and you might choose to put one large ceramic tile in the middle of the backsplash and then surround it with glass. This can give you the look of reflective and bright glass while saving money.
