If you’re looking for an easy remodel that won’t break the bank, talk to your local experts at Floor Coverings International Calgary about a glass backsplash for your kitchen or bathroom. Backsplashes effortlessly give a touch of elegance and style to a room. Many kitchen and bathroom design trends focus on natural stone, but one of our favorites is glass for a few reasons. Keep reading to find out why.

Contemporary Glass Tile Backsplash

Bright & Beautiful Tiles

Glass tiles come in virtually any color or size and can fit your design dreams perfectly. You can opt for a colorful mosaic design that’s both functional and artistic, or choose monotone slabs that modernize any room. The reflective quality of glass will brighten up your home, especially if you go for lighter hues. If your kitchen or bathroom is dominated by a single kind of tile, a colorful glass backsplash will break up the monochromatic look. Colored glass offers an easy way to incorporate more vibrancy into a room, and you can redesign the décor to match the new tones. Making smaller changes that create a big impact is a smart design method for homeowners that either don’t want to exhaust remodeling funds or aren’t ready to part with some of their larger fixtures.

Easy to Manage

One of the best benefits of glass is how easy it is to maintain. Glass will naturally resist the growth of mold and mildew, common enemies of moisture trapping spaces like kitchen sinks or bathrooms. Cleanups require little more than a damp rag. You will love how simple it is to clean your glass tiles and keep them looking pristine. However, if you choose the mosaic look with small tiles, regularly cleaning the grout is recommended.

Although glass is easy to take care of, the installation process can be tricky because of how delicate it is before it has set. We don’t recommend making your glass tile backsplash a DIY project. You can trust our team at Floor Coverings International Calgary to get the job done and make sure that your glass tile will be as long lasting as possible.

Glass Tile Backsplash DetailEco-friendly Glass Options

If you’re interested in glass but wanted to go the green route with your remodel, you can choose to use recycled glass for your backsplash. Recycled glass tile comes from used glass bottles and products. It often has a matte finish that gives a more natural feel to the room. Eco-friendly flooring is definitely gaining popularity and it’s a great option if you’re conscious of your environmental impact. All recycled glass is cleaned and we will make sure it’s given an even polish to still look elegant.


Glass tiles are a great option for homes looking for the modern feel. It’s not a cheap resource so choosing a backsplash instead of covering an entire counter or bathroom wall will keep the project budget-friendly.
