Think About The Big Picture…

It’s easy to get excited about a tile backsplash you see in a photo, but it’s important to keep in mind how that tile will look in your space. Unless you are designing your entire kitchen around a specific backsplash, there are a few considerations you should think about before selecting your winner.

Will It Clash With Other Finishes (Cabinets, Countertops & Floors)?

Choose a backsplash that will complement your pre-existing finishes rather than work against them. For instance, if you have a busy countertop, it may be wise to opt for a simpler backsplash rather than doubling up on a busy backsplash too.

Sometimes simple is better, like this Glacier Pure White Glass Subway Tile backsplash! With its simple appearance, this glass tile backsplash serves as the perfect backdrop for other colorful accents and decor throughout the kitchen or bath.

Room Size

Not only does glass tile reflect light beautifully, but a light color glass tile backsplash can create the feeling of a larger space. If you are working with a smaller kitchen or bathroom, the more light you can present, the more spacious the room will feel!

Mixing Materials

One of the best-kept secrets to creating a great-looking space is mixing materials. If you’re keeping your granite or quartz countertop but want to add a lovely backsplash, a glass tile backsplash can be the perfect accent to complement your space; just look for a glass tile that coordinates with the granite’s main color field for a more uniform look.

Care and Cleaning

Tips for Installing Glass Tile

When it comes to installing glass tile, it's best to install with a glass adhesive and the recommended grout joins to allow some wiggle room. This way you can avoid glass tiles cracking over time. Since glass tile is transparent, it’s also recommended that you use a non-sanded grout to avoid scratching the glass surface. Don’t be afraid to pick a contrasting color or add a decorative detail with colored grout!

Since many glass tile backsplash options come in sheets, installation is extremely easy, which means you can start enjoying a backsplash like this White Ceramic and Pearl Glass Hexagon Mosaic Tile backsplash in no time!

How to Clean Glass Tile Backsplash

We weren’t kidding when we said glass tile backsplashes are easy to clean and maintain! All you need to do is wipe away cooking oil, sauce splatters, makeup, and other messes with a regular glass cleaner. To keep grout looking super fresh, clean, and stain-free, we recommend sealing it with a grout sealer.
