Glass tile: It's not just for pool surrounds anymore.
Considering that glass has been around for thousands of years, it is amazing how much progress has been made in glass tile manufacturing in the last ten years.
As you can see from this beautiful example from Interstyle, glass tile can be seen in just about any size, color, texture or finish imaginable and it can be used pretty much anywhere ceramic tile is appropriate.
According to Patricia Hart McMillan, coauthor of Glass Tile Inspirations for Kitchens & Baths. "As an interior designer, I appreciate the gloriously unique light-refracting quality of glass tile that adds an exciting liveliness unmatched by any other surface material. One manufacturer described the interaction one has with glass tile as 'dancing with the light'."
"I am thrilled with the variety of glass tile, so that there is a color, texture, finish and size (or combination of sizes and shapes) appropriate for any and every interior style and period," says McMillan.
