We’re adding a wall of glass blue tile to our hall bathroom in the next few weeks as part of an ongoing remodel and so I’ve got glass tile on my mind. It’s been popular for a decade now for its cool texture and watery reflective qualities.
There’s something so stunning about a bathroom covered in gorgeous glass tile from ceiling to floor, the look is one incredible design statement!
Whether you choose a mesh mosaic or larger pieces installed in an offset pattern, glass tile wrapped around bathroom walls is visually striking and brings gorgeous contrast when paired with warm wood.
Making a stylish statement with glass tile doesn’t require tiling all the walls. Just an accent wall or backsplash behind the vanity is equally beautiful and more affordable since you’re covering a smaller area.
Consider the shower stall as another place to use glass tile to add color and pattern to your bathroom space.
Mix complementary patterns in varied scale to add texture and color. Make the medley more interesting by using different tile from the same manufacturer’s palette and installing the mesh tiles in various patterns around the space.
Glass tile also mixes beautifully with other tile products including ceramic, porcelain, stone, and marble. Accenting more traditional tile with a strip of modern glass is yet another way to add contemporary flair with glass tile and preserve a bathroom’s timeless style.
