A glass tile kitchen backsplash brings elegance, style, color, and light to your kitchen. The colors, designs, and sizes available will sure to fit anything you have in mind. They are a little more expensive than ceramic tile, but you will be happy with the results the extra money will give. The do-it-yourselfer will find glass tiles easy to trim and apply if you are wanting to tackle the project yourself. Most come already together by a mesh background with perfect grout spacing between. A very good choice for the kitchen because it is easy to clean. Ceramic tile is the most common and traditionally looked at as cheap.
Maximize natural light by having windows and skylights, and keep kitchen wall surfaces light in color to reflect daylight. Custom kitchen islands work great by using pendant or recessed fixtures to direct light onto the kitchen island and other work areas. Electrical codes will likely require that electrical outlets be located on the sides of fixed kitchen islands, not on the top, to prevent electrical shock.
Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built-in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after-school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
