Glass and Stone Backsplash Tile Design Ideas

Posted by BELK Tile on Jun 17, 2014

Separately, glass tiles and stone tiles look beautiful in a wall or a backsplash. Together, they create an interesting pattern of colors, shapes, and textures that can liven up any room. Here are three home design suggestions for glass and stone backsplash tile.

Use glass and stone backsplash tile to add texture in the bathroom.

Glass and Stone backsplash tilesMost bathrooms are bedecked with ordinary-looking tiles in lifeless colors. But just because it’s the bathroom and that it’s seldom seen by anyone apart from the family doesn’t mean that you can’t experiment with design elements and try to make the bathroom as elegant as the rest of the house. Add an interesting accent to the bathroom by installing a backsplash made with a combination of glass and stone tiles. The play on textures and colors will definitely brighten up any dull room. You can even do this for enclosed showers and for the area around the tub. Take inspiration from the color palette of the backsplash when choosing fabrics and other room accents.

Use glass and stone backsplash tile as an accent wall.

A glass and stone mosaic tile backsplash can look modern or antique depending on the colors, shapes, and layouts you choose. Create a focal point in any room by using the eclectic mix of glass and stone tiles. Cover the area behind the stovetop from counter to ceiling, or just under the range hood with a mix of glass and stone tiles in a single color that contrasts with the wall, or tile paint in the rest of the room. You could also use the unusual texture combination of glass and stone tiles in your accent wall to contrast against the uniformly-textured walls in the area. You can mark out a little niche or alcove in your living room this way.

Use glass and stone backsplash tile to add a retro vibe to a bar.

Create a backsplash with glass and stone tiles in black, dark and light browns, creams, tans, and grays. Install wooden cabinetry fronted by bubble glass. Install a bar top made of stained heavy wood with a high sheen. Put in a tiny metal sink with an old copper faucet. Add a mini-fridge, a wine rack, glass racks overhead, and a keg. Add leather-topped bar stools. Put up framed vintage posters of baseball players or boxers.
