Whether you’re thinking about a full top-to-bottom remodel of your kitchen or bathroom remodel or simply a refresh, tile is going to play an important part.

What is glass tile?

​Decorative glass tile has a translucent quality that can give anything a special sheen, adding sparkle and brilliance.

Available in a large assortment of colors, patterns, and design they come in gloss or matte finishes, and you can buy them separately or as a mesh sheet of mosaic tiles. You can find them on bathroom floors, or around tub and shower surrounds to create a serene, spa-like atmosphere.

They can also bring your kitchen countertops back to life, Deltona, FL, without having to do a full remodeling. It’s just glass taken from the landfills and then melted down, molded into shapes, and handtrimmed. Because it takes so much less energy to produce, it’s considered an eco-friendly product. They’re resistant to stains, are less porous and waterproof.

They can be a little pricey, however, so you can combine them with other, less expensive tiles to create borders or inserts. They’re thin, so they are a little more prone to scratching. Use them in a lower traffic area such as a bedroom, or even the bathroom for a small family.

Porcelain and ceramic tiles

​ Porcelain is made of clay, sand and sometimes glass and is fired at higher temperatures to be denser and better able to handle heavy foot traffic. You'll see it in kitchens, hallways, and bathrooms for large families where there are a lot of kids running in and out. It can be glazed or unglazed and is always waterproof and can also be used outside on decks, patios or poolside. Porcelain can be made to look like anything, and the large format means fewer seams so if a marble bathroom is in your remodeling plans, Port Orange, this is for you!

Or how about a travertine or slate floor in the kitchen? Ceramic tiles are available in a wide assortment of colors, shapes, and sizes. Also good for (lower traffic) floors, they're often used as backsplashes, accent walls, borders, and even art. David Waller Interiors has been a leader in interior design for over 45 years.
