1) Water Features

When used as an accent tile on the sides and bottoms of pools, glass tile can be used to create elaborate designs and enhance the look of the pool since it reflects light, resulting in a stunning effect. Due to this ability to reflect light in a way no other tile can, it's also perfect for other water features including fountains.

2) Hearths

Believe it or not, glass tile is one of the most durable materials for a fireplace surround, not to mention a beautiful one. Glass tile perfectly captures and enlarges the light from the fire, providing the magical and cozy feel we associate with fireplaces. It's also easy to clean - making it an even more appealing choice for a hearth.

If you're creating a kitchen or bathroom backsplash with glass tile, why not extend the tile across the entire wall? Or use it to create a feature wall in a family room or living room. Have you considered creating a WOW Wall in your bathroom?
