7. Color Profiles
Start by checking out colors and shades that work with your existing countertops and cabinets. There is a wide selection of colors to choose from, each potentially having a different impact on the room. Opaque glass tiles can give a small space the feeling that it is larger. Pale green glass tiles can be complementary to white marble countertops. White glass mosaic tiles can illuminate a room, although it is reported that the appearance might seem slightly green.
Colors can be bold, dark and dramatic or subtle and slight. Black, brown, green, blue, gray, yellow, cream and white are some popular choices. With glass tiles, you can even combine colors to come up with unique combinations. Iridescent and shiny finishes can add a luxurious, dazzling edge to the design.
6. Custom Designs
There are many ways to add a personal touch to a backsplash. You can try to create a mosaic of your pet, business logo or family member. Keep an eye out for design ideas. Check out kitchens, bathrooms, pool areas, hotel lobbies and bars for mosaic design ideas.
A mosaic design can be intricate or simple; it’s up to you. Play with different colors and different textures to form harmonious blends between the mosaic and the space. Use creative variations, such as round glass tile inserts or modern advancements, like embedding a waterproof TV into the glass mosaic backsplash. Smaller glass tiles can even be used as borders for other types of tiles.
5. Complimentary Décor
Make sure your choice of glass tiles blends with existing countertops, cabinets, flooring and colors. Consider making updates to existing installations, such as adding decorative glass to cabinetry doors. Make sure colors and styles don’t clash. The room should have a harmonious feel.
As discussed, a textured look can be created using multiple types of glass and different materials in the mosaic. This design technique will help organically link the multiple materials and colors in the room
Before you move forward, think about any home improvements in the future. Should you remodel the rest of the room when you install the new mosaic or do you plan to refresh it again in a few years?
