boca raton glass tile flooring

Tiles come in many different shapes and sizes, from ceramic rectangles to irregular natural stone. At Floor Coverings International Boca Raton, we work with families in the greater Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Deerfield Beach area to find their dream floors. Glass tile is especially popular in Boca Raton because of our heat and humidity. In addition to its practicality, glass tile is gorgeous. Read on to learn more about why so many Boca Raton homeowners choose glass tile for their bathrooms and kitchens.

Advantages

  • Durable: don’t let its name fool you; glass tile is sturdier than your typical wine glass. Simply clean regularly with a damp cloth, and this low-maintenance tile will last for decades.
  • Unique: glass is often used in decorative tiles. It looks the most beautiful in mosaics. Glass tile has reflective properties and glows in natural light.
  • Versatile: you can find glass tile in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and textures. The most common glass tile is small, smooth, and shiny, but you can find large matte glass and even triangular tiles for distinct accent pieces. Glass tiles aren’t only for your floors; you often find glass tiles in shower walls and kitchen backsplashes.
  • Water­-resistant: there is a reason that tile is often the first choice for Boca Raton bathrooms and kitchens. With tile, you need not worry about moisture in the air or even standing water. Glass tiles are no different, so long as an experienced installation crew installs them.

Texture and Placement

Although glass tiles can be found in a variety of textures, the most common is smooth. This can prove problematic when they are used in bathrooms and showers because smooth tiles become slippery when wet. That’s why it is wise to choose a rougher, more textured glass tile for floor use. Save smooth, shiny tiles for a feature wall.
