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.
Use texture. As with color and pattern, texture can set the tone for your entire kitchen. For example, earth colored granite tiles cut into a uniform size are warm and inviting, while metal tiles, on the other hand, create a contemporary and modern feel. It's all in the details. It's the little details that make a kitchen "yours" instead of looking like it just came off a showroom floor. Intriguing kitchen backsplash designs are more about thoughtful details than grandiose gestures. And honestly, it doesn't take much to create a one-of-a-kind kitchen tile design. A few well-placed decorative tiles, diamond tiles instead of squares, or a colorful checkered diamond tile backsplash can literally set your kitchen apart from the rest.
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.
And, glass tiles don't absorb every one of the liquids or spills, therefore, will be more durable than their additional counterparts. The glass tile backsplashes are simple to maintain and clean. The sole drawback or disadvantage related to this choice will be that a professional installation price could be higher compared to additional tiles, and these tiles will be more susceptible to breakage than additional varieties.
Country Kitchen. Country cabinets include oak or cherry cabinets with the raised panels that are glazed, painted or distressed. These cabinets give natural look to your kitchen because they themselves possess the light natural look which is usually oak or pine. In order to give aged appearance, the country kitchen cabinets are painted white with distressed finishing.
