When it comes to kitchen backsplash one thing is certain — you will have a hard time deciding what to go for. There is a variety of designs, materials, and types of finishes, all created to look stunning and draw attention. However, not all of the tiles carry the same value in terms of durability and functionality. So you may like one thing more than the other, but on those front glass mosaic tiles are simply the best solution, especially for a backsplash.

Versatility

Glass mosaic tiles are by far the most versatile mosaic tiles out there. Whatever design you may have in mind, there are glass mosaic tiles to fit your idea. Glass mosaic tiles come in countless different shapes, sizes, and colors, and even if you have something special on your mind, you can always arrange for the glass mosaic tiles to be customized to fit your needs.

Wood, natural stone, and ceramic are all terrific choices, but if you are going for a particular style, glass mosaic tiles are much more customizable.

Maintenance

Glass mosaic tiles are much easier to clean than wood, ceramic, marble, or mirror tiles. They are also resistant to staining, mold, mildew, and bacteria, which makes them perfect for both bathroom and kitchen backsplashes. Just clean your glass mosaic backsplash with warm soapy water and a dry towel once in a while and it will look great at all times.

Eco-friendly solution

Implementing environmentally friendly concepts into your home became a must in today’s society. Keeping in mind that sustainability is the key to a better life and brighter future, it is no wonder that people are trying to lead more environmentally conscious lives. If you are looking for sustainable kitchen design solutions, mosaic glass backsplash is a perfect choice. Glass tiles can be scraped and fully repurposed, which makes them viable in more ways than one.

Appearance

When it comes to appearance nothing is quite as beautiful as glass. Unlike other types of mosaic tiles, glass has a transparency to it, which gives it an almost ethereal look. Furthermore, glass has a remarkably shiny surface that reflects the light making your kitchen appear brighter and larger. On the same note, glass mosaic backsplashes are great for small or windowless kitchens.

Durability

Just like with every other type of tile, the durability of glass tile is dependent on its thickness and quality. Glass in itself is a non-porous material which makes it terrific for a moderately busy kitchen, and even if some damage does occur, mosaic tiles are easy to change, so it is not a huge problem like with regular backsplashes.

    My kitchen gets lots of use and the backspalsh gets dirty often, reading your post does make sense that the glass mosaic is better for cleaning and looking attractive

    Glass back splashes are REALLY CHALLENGING to clean, so I can totally understand how glass would be so much easier. Also these back splashes look amazing.

    For a kitchen you need something that will be easy to clean because you’re likely to make a mess, so glass sounds like a good low maintenance option x

    I would have never considered a mosaic artwork as a kitchen backsplash if not for your post. Now that I have looked at so many beautiful styles, I can see why it’s a great choice. The fact that it is resistant to mildew and bacteria is a top one for me. And my gosh, how beautiful is that sun kitchen mosaic! I could stare at that all day long. So stunning!
