Glass Mosaic Tiles

Glass mosaic tiles for walls are a beautiful way to update your bathroom shower walls or even your kitchen backsplash. The wide variety of glass mosaic designs and the fact that they are mesh-mounted make them a convenient choice for DIYers and professional tilers alike. While some of our other mosaic options can be used on either floors or walls, glass mosaics must only be used on walls to avoid breakage. 

 A perk of using glass mosaic tiles is that they can be sold by the sheet, making them perfect for smaller spaces. If you have a small kitchen or shower niche, you can create a finished look with only a few sheets of mosaics. Not only will it make your space look more put together, but it can also be a quick and easy fix.

Types of Glass Mosaic Tiles

If you have a small kitchen or shower niche, you can create a finished look with only a few glass mosaic tiles sheets. Not only will it make your space look more put together, but it can also be a quick and easy fix.

One of the glass mosaic tiles that we recommend for kitchen backsplashes is our Karma Random Sized Glass Mosaic Tile. This stunning glass mosaic tile is perfect for modern kitchen designs. The different textures and sizes of each piece in the mosaic make it interesting while keeping the overall aesthetic appeal. The White and Cream colors would coordinate with bright kitchen designs that use a lot of white marble or have light-colored cabinets. These will blend in with the walls but also provide a little texture to provide a little visual interest if you are layering similar colors in a space. The Light Grey could easily work with a modern farmhouse design, while the Charcoal color might provide a strong contrast to a masculine design style. The Black color option is an edgy and bold design choice that could look great in a variety of kitchens. You could use it to blend in with existing black cabinets or you could use it as a stark contrast to lighter cabinet colors. All of these options will add a nice texture to your backsplash while also protecting the walls from splashes and spills!

 

Another glass mosaic tile for kitchen backsplashes is our Victory 1”x2” mosaic that is also a brick-style mosaic. These glass mosaic wall tiles have less size variation and a higher color variation.

These glass mosaics are an interesting option for those that want to create visual interest while still having a mostly glossy, smooth surface to the mosaic. These are great for kitchens with a traditional design or for any kitchen that is calling for a pop of color. These mosaics come in colors ranging from greens to reds, with many mixed color options as well. The Victory line of mosaic tiles comes in many colors that can be used for so many interesting designs. 

The third type of brick-style glass mosaic tile that could be used for kitchen backsplashes is our Cosmos Sleek series. This is like a mix of modern and traditional glass mosaic designs. The slimmer brick style creates a similar textural variation to our Karma series, while the smooth and glossy pieces are similar to the Victory 1”x2” brick mosaics. The Cosmos Sleek series is a nice option of glass mosaic tiles for kitchen backsplashes that need to stand out. The high gloss and interesting patterns on these glass mosaics need a space to shine.

Cons of Glass Mosaic Tiles

  • Glass mosaic tiles are expensive – One of the only two major drawbacks of using glass mosaic tiles in your spaces is that it is blindly expensive. You can find some glass sheets that can cost a little less and are easy for your pocket, but good-quality glass mosaic sheets are very expensive and can only be bought if you can afford to splurge.

As it is they are so expensive and it is not a good idea to even chip them. 
  • Glass mosaic sheets scratch easily as compared to other tiles – Glass mosaic tiles are highly durable and can be easily cleaned, one of the second major backdrops of installing glass mosaic sheets in your space is that they are very susceptible to scratches. There will come a time after many years when you will have to replace them because of too many scratches on the glass mosaic sheets.

  • Glass mosaic sheets break easily as compared to other tiles – Glass mosaic sheets are durable like the other tiles and are fine under huge amounts of weight. But they are not resistant to cracks.
