Glass tiles come in many different design styles, colours and materials. Glass tiles have become more popular over the last couple of years for their beauty, elegance and style but also because they are incredibly easy to maintain and clean.
‘Glass raised access tiles’ (also known as ‘แก้วยกกระเบื้องเข้าถึง‘ in the thai language) also come in different sizes depending on where you are planning to install them, they are also great for areas such as back-splash areas in the kitchen and bathroom and they can also be used on borders, around bath areas and in and around shower areas.
Installing glass is relatively easy although you must be aware that they can break easily and it may be more cost effective to have them installed by a professional.
Many home owners are unsure of installing glass because they are more likely to break when installing than other tiles but professional tile fitters will be able to fit them with ease and once down, glass tiles will make a spectacular addition to both kitchens and bathrooms.
Glass is also great for smaller spaces and rooms because they are excellent at reflecting the light which means they will open up small spaces and make them appear larger. They are also a very hygienic tile and don’t harbour bacteria easily. The reason for this is because they do not absorb moisture making them ideal for bathrooms and kitchens where there will be moisture levels.
Like all tiles, there are different types of Glass with the smalti Glass being one of the first glass tiles manufactured. These days there are many different types of glass tiles on the market and all come in different colours, styles and sizes. The one you choose will largely depend on your personal design style and where you want to use them.
Glass can be used in kitchens and bathrooms, on both walls and floors. They are also commonly used in swimming pools and to decorate furniture.
Glass installed on floors can be very effective and make a bold statement but it must be noted that glass floors are higher maintenance than other floor options because they will mark more easily than other tiles, largely because they are installed over a large area.
Glass tiles however work really well over small floor areas and are fantastic on walls, backsplash areas and as borders used alongside other tiles.
