Kitchen Backsplash Glass Tiles

In your mind, picture the perfect kitchen you would like to create; what does it have? Do you see granite or stone countertops as the central theme?  What kind of kitchen backsplash tile adorns the wall behind the sink and the stovetop? In fact, are you considering a gas or an electric stove and oven?  There are a lot of decorative and functioning factors to consider when planning on redesigning a kitchen.  Some ideas you have in mind are bound to be on the more expensive side, so what areas are you willing to compromise in and which are you not?  Glass tiles are a very eye-catching and beautiful addition to any kitchen, as there are generally at eye level when someone walks in; kitchen backsplash tends to be the first thing that someone will notice, especially if you are basing your remodeling around a decorative color theme.

There are many options available when it comes to kitchen backsplash tile; for instance, there are some glass tiles that carry a flatter shape, and are more opaque than other tiles.  They may not let natural light shine through, but tend to have a surface with an iridescent shine which can be a whole different look.  There are also patterns available that are more of a three dimensional shape, meaning they will not be just flat on a wall, they will pop out more in certain areas and give a different and unique look to your kitchen.  Whatever direction you decide to go with the designing and remodeling of your kitchen, glass tile is a trendy and cost-effective way to maximize your homes resale value and enjoy a quality product that will have your houseguests commenting on your kitchen with nothing but positive reactions.
