The beauty and versatility of glass tiles, which can be produced in an endless variety of colors and textures, make them a perfect design material for most renovation projects in and around the home or business. Traditional applications find these translucent tiles in kitchens and bathrooms, around pools, and on wall mosaics; however, tiles have also been incorporated into a variety of innovative craft and design projects. Like interior designers and contractors, crafters and artists appreciate the flexibility of working with glass tiles. Playing with glass (shape, color, texture, size, pattern) guarantees tiles a place in every project, simple or complex, novice, or professional.
The modern uses of glass tile listed below are a sample of some of the more interesting and creative examples of tile design that we’ve come across. From functional uses in houses, restaurants, and public buildings, to artistic applications both small and large, glass tile wears many hats in the design world. Inspire yourself with some of the most fun, funky, and amazing examples we’ve found.
