Our homes often feel like a sanctuary from the rest of the world.
How many times have you been stuck at work, or been sitting in traffic and thinking about how nice it will be to put your feet up and relax at home?
It’s in our nature as domestic creatures to take pride in our homes, and we tend to put a lot of effort into the way they look and feel.
In the glass industry, we are lucky enough to be able to help people with exciting and innovative new designs for their homes every day.
A recent survey of Australian homeowners found that improving the design/look and feel was the most important consideration for renovations and additions.
In terms of rooms to focus on, respondents in the survey said the kitchen was the second most important area to focus on, after the living room.
With that in mind, let’s explore some of the most exciting ways to use glass tiles to take your kitchen design to the next level.
Glass tile mosaics
Creating a glass tile mosaic allows you to explore your creative side. Glass tiles can come in virtually any shape, colour and thickness that you desire. This allows you to create a genuinely unique and eye-catching kitchen design that’s a surefire conversation starter.
When we think of most modern kitchens, we immediately think sleek and smooth; clean lines and shiny surfaces.
One of the most powerful uses for glass tiles in the kitchen is to provide a sense of contrast to the dominant feel of the space; an essential element of good design.
Texture can play a vital role in the overall look of your kitchen and there is nothing quite like a custom designed glass tile design to make a space
Glass tiles for a touch of subtle geometry
The beauty of a classic glass tile is that it can add depth to your kitchen, whether it is part of a complex pattern, or the simplest geometric design.
If your kitchen already has some bold elements and you want to use glass tiles without clashing, consider a simple geometric pattern, such as a classic herringbone in a soft colour palette, to maintain a nice balance.
Glass tiles are fantastic way to stamp a piece of your own style on your kitchen, and the possibilities are endless for creating unique designs.
