Design Ideas For Kitchen Back~Splashes
Glass is a unique material for tiles that is a popular choice among interior designers looking for a little pizzazz in their designs. With a host of different varieties and a wide spectrum of available colors, there is often no prettier material to work with. However, it can be a tricky product to work with as well, so here are some considerations to keep in mind and present to your client when they are deciding if glass tile is the wholesale tile of choice for their design purposes.
The biggest advantage to glass tile is simply in how pretty and eye-catching it can be. With a multitude of design varieties coupled with its color schemes, designers and interior decorators can really mix and match with glass tile to come up with the best fit for their project. According to HGTV.com, Dave Gobis, the executive director of the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation, said “there’s nothing prettier” than glass tile.
In addition, decorators have certain tricks of the trade they can employ using glass tiles. As interior designer Mallory Mathison told the Seattle Times, the translucence of glass tile makes it an inspired choice for use in decorating smaller rooms, particularly bathrooms, to give the illusion of space.
“Your eye kind of looks through it, so it doesn’t create a boundary,” said Mathison. “It’s an almost limitless look.”
There are many options for your back-splash, Stacked Slate with a Glass Insert makes a stunning Back-Splash!
Using a chair rail you can make a window pane and use many different products to add a decorative flair. Other options are to use Tumbled Travertine, or man made products that resemble Natural Stone. Marazzi has just the product for this purpose. The artisanal feel of hand-crafted travertine trims is resurrected using a stone and resin composite with results that closely resemble ancient originals, without the difficulty associated with cutting, drilling and installing natural stone.
Another Accent option is to use Metals as a Decorative Insert. Marazzi’s Romance Collection has some beautiful pieces to choose from. Ceramic and resin coated with actual metal make romancing the wide variety of today’s stone, marble, wood and glass looks nearly effortless.
