Mosaic glass tiles are trending in design

Glass in all of its forms is going strong as a design trend. The latest entries in glass decorating include glass tiles, patterned tiles and mosaic tiles. There’s nothing new about mosaics, or even patterned tiles. They’ve been around for hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of years. But homeowners are incorporating them into their kitchens and baths.

Whether you go for glass on the floors, walls or even the ceilings, glass tiles are a hit in a big way. If you’re not good at laying down a bed of mortar, or don’t have the patience to line up little tiles, consider creating a back painted surface instead.

Back painted glass is easy to make, easy to install and easy to maintain. You can use back painted glass on the wall as a backsplash or just an interesting surface. You can also use it to reface cabinets or create beautiful countertops.

Glass is easy to clean and it’s impervious to bacteria. That makes it a natural choice for heavy-duty areas of your home like the kitchen and bathroom. If safety is a concern, you can use tempered glass, which is heat- and shatter-resistant. You can also get thick glass custom-cut for use on countertops.

As an added benefit, you can enhance the already-dramatic appearance of glass through lighting. Worried about color? No problem there, either! Glassprimer™ glass paint is specially formulated to adhere to glass surfaces. Paint one side of the glass using your favorite color, and once the paint is dry, flip it over and install it with the unpainted side facing outward.

You’ll get an exceptionally easy-to-make and easy-to-care for surface for your home that will perform flawlessly for years. Making back painted glass is an ideal do-it-yourself project that requires no special skills and ordinary supplies!
