People might not realize it right away, but the tiles you choose for your home are essential. If you make the wrong choice, you could be looking at an untimely replacement. This can be inconvenient both for your wallet and your daily home life. 

Aside from the tiles, you’ll be using them for your flooring. You also have to think about what tiles you’re going to use for your kitchen and bathroom. There are so many options to choose from that it can get overwhelming. 

But remember, this is important because those tiles will protect your walls from all the water and steam that will be coming from the bathroom and the kitchen. The last thing you want is to have to remodel so soon after just moving in or having your house built, which is a real risk if you fail to get the suitable tiles for your backsplash. 

Naturally, you’re going to want tiles that are both sturdy and pretty to look at. After all, you’re going to have to look at it for a long time. Make sure you pick something creative but not too loud that you get tired of it and not too dull either. If you are looking for something ideally in the middle, why don’t you consider glass tiles?

Glass tiles are perfect for kitchen backsplashes, shower walls, tub surrounds, and accent walls. They don’t chip or fade either, so you won’t have to worry about upkeep and maintenance. It will stay looking good for a very long time.

Opt for back painting to give it more life and color if you want to have even more fun with your glass tiles. 

Here are some examples of how you can make your glass tiles stand out:

Make it Shiny 

A shiny finish can help tone down the color and brightness of your tiles. Glass is naturally smooth, so it won’t be hard to make it shine. It’s essential to find the balance between bold and gaudy. 

If we’re talking about your home, that’s a line you don’t want to cross. Additionally, a shiny finish can be achieved in several different ways. It just depends on your preference.

Make it Bigger 

Sometimes, bigger is better. Customize your backsplash by using more oversized tiles. Play around with various shapes and sizes to achieve a unique and one-of-a-kind look. It’s a great way to get creative without going outside the box too much. If you want to go for a more classic and subtle tile, changing the sizes and shapes is a great way to make it more fun and exciting. 

Try Pebble Interlocking

Pebble interlocking can give you crystallized glass that looks unlike anything you can just buy off the rack at your local hardware and building supplies store. Pebble interlocking can make your kitchen or bathroom look modern and classic at the same time. It gives off a contemporary vibe that is cool and pleasing to the eye. 


Trends come and go, but the tiles in your home do not. It would be a shame and waste to have tiles that are already out of style. Of course, you also have to make sure that you choose something that you like. Don’t rely too much on what the trends are saying. Only use that as a guide to what you should be checking out. The final decision is still up to you.
