Are you looking to add something new to your home? Are you on a budget? Consider spicing up your kitchen or bathroom with a glass tile backsplash! Glass backsplashes are gaining popularity among Asheville homeowners due to their affordability and diversity.
Glass is a great alternative backsplash material to traditional ceramic because it’s attractive yet inexpensive. It’s also very easy to clean, low maintenance, and comes in a wide variety of hues, textures, and designs. By choosing to use tiles instead of a single sheet of glass, you also increase your design options with the ability to create patterns.
If you aren’t sure where to start, follow these steps to help get you through the process:
- Measure the surface area you want to cover. This will determine how much tile you’ll need.
- Decide on the style of your glass. Some styles to choose from include clear, frosted, colored, or textured glass. You can also play around with lighting. For a modern and bold look, add a colorful LED light behind the glass to give it a cool effect.
- Choose a color or color scheme. You can either choose to match the existing colors in the room, or go with something new to add an accent. There’s also the creative option of placing colorful fabric behind clear glass, giving it the appearance of a window.
- Once you’ve decided on a style, color, and pattern for your glass tile backsplash, you’re ready to start the installation. You can either choose to go the DIY route, or hire professionals.
If you choose to do the installation yourself, more power to you.
