What Are Advantages of Mosaic Glass Tiles?
Available in iridescent, pearlescent and reflective styles, glass mosaic tiles are an effective way to add beauty to your room's décor. Common in kitchens, backsplashes and bathrooms, the glass surface beautifully reflects light and makes your space feel larger and more welcoming. Choose between a bunch of colours, shapes and patterns for an interesting border design or to create an eye-catching focal point. Glass mosaics are durable, waterproof and easy to wipe clean, making them a smart installation for bathrooms, kitchens and even swimming areas. Adding a glass mosaic design could be the perfect opportunity to let your creativity shine through.
In terms of colour, Longart offers glass mosaics in a wide range of colours and shades, from bright whites to soft blues to stunning multi-coloured blends. Adding a unique look by installing a mixture of glass and natural stone, this mixture adds a classic mix of earthy tones and polished finishes.
In terms of shapes and sizes, there are dozens of mosaic tile pattern styles such as V-shaped, Amalfi, Stria, Athens and Cardine, in addition to rectangular, square and penny round forms that can transform your backsplash or wall into a monolithic art. Each mosaic tile is famously available in half-inch and 1" x 1" square tiles, as well as 1" x 2" and 1" x 4" rectangular shapes. Most mosaics are on 12" x 12" fiberglass grid panels for easy and straightforward installation.
Luminous appearance: all but the darkest glass tiles tend to reflect light rather than absorb it. This gives the mosaic pieces a bright glow that you won't find in any other flooring material.
Elegant design: perhaps the greatest benefit of using mosaic glass in flooring applications is the aesthetic appeal that can be achieved through correct installation. You can choose between solid and coloured tiles, which can then be arranged in simple or intricate patterns. Some shops will also sell repeating patterns that can be used to create intricate pictures and designs.
Easy to clean: glass tiles are resistant to stains, mould and mildew. They tend to show dirt easily, so you will always know when it is time to clean. They are resistant to chemical damage and are non-porous, so you don't have to worry about dirt penetrating the tiles. They are also very easy to clean and can be wiped down with a damp cloth or with warm water. If there is soap scum in the bathroom, a mild vinegar solution can be used.
A "green" product: glass tiles require approximately half the energy to produce compared to similar sized tiles. You can also choose to use recycled glass tiles made from recycled glass waste.
Luminous appearance: All but the darkest glass tiles tend to reflect light rather than absorb it. This gives the mosaic pieces a bright glow that you won't find in any other flooring material.
Durability: As long as your glass tiles pass the strict ASTM standards required to be approved as a flooring material, they should be durable and not crack under anything less than a sharp direct force applied with a hard object such as a hammer. Scratching is another matter - glass tiles can scratch.
