There are few flooring or backsplash materials as dazzling as mosaic tile. Formed by the arrangement of many small, vibrantly colored pieces, glass mosaic tile is not only an option in flooring, but also a bold fireworks-display for backsplashes that really packs a punch.
At Floor Coverings International Rockwall, we love exploring the huge range of diverse flooring options out there, and today we cover one of the most brightly lit corners of the flooring realm – mosaic tile! Join us as we detail mosaic tiles and their many merits for homes in Rockwall.
Easy to Maintain – But Watch Your Step!
Glass mosaic tiles are simple to clean due to their resilience. Few cleaning agents are at risk of damaging a glass mosaic tile surface, making it a much simpler option in this respect than easily blemished materials like hardwood or stone tiles. Additionally, glass is rarely impacted by mold or insect damage, which can plague some other floors.
Of course, while resistant in the mentioned ways, glass mosaic tiles are vulnerable to the impact of heavy objects. Cracks can develop if heavy objects are dropped on mosaic tiles, and these should be addressed by professionals immediately. Otherwise, the cracks may grow and lead to glass fragments that can be stepped on.
One other concern when it comes to mosaic tile floors is slippage. When wet, glass tiles can become slick and difficult to walk on safely. This is easily managed by using a towel to soak up any liquids. Certain rooms in the home might benefit from a non-slip area rug to ensure there is always a safe option in the event of a spill.
Valuable and Stylish
Glass mosaic tile flooring is uncommon, and it can be customized in pretty specific ways to meet your interior design goals. If your long-term plans include selling your home, a tasteful mosaic tile design has a good chance of raising the price point. Of course, mosaic tile itself will be installed at a higher initial price, so this is something to weigh as you make your flooring decisions.
Taking roughly half the energy required to produce ceramic tile, glass mosaic is a relatively environmentally friendly choice. It can also be salvaged from glass refuse, consuming less raw material from the environment.
