Mosaic Tiles

Tiling is a great option to consider to enhance a space due the wide variety of designs available, their durability, and easy maintenance. And of the numerous options available, glass mosaic tiles are considered to be one of the finest for their craftsmanship and ability to turn a space around in no time. You can find them at the bottom of pools too, creating a stunning and sparkling design. They’re hygienic, easy-to-clean and less likely to be damaged by any chemicals, making it the perfect tiling option for a pool. 

Typically, glass tiles are made from thin pieces of glass with translucent glaze fired on the back of each tile, and they are sold individually and in pre-set mosaic patterns set on a mesh backing. Since they are tiny compared to traditional tiles, they literally fit as individual pieces of a puzzle, and can be customised to any part of the home for use in the kitchen, bath, or as accent walls etc.

Glass tiles, with its mirror-like shine and wide array of colours gives homes a more modern, contemporary appeal. And because of its ability to reflect light, it also makes rooms appear brighter  and more spacious.

Adhesives used for glass mosaic installation 


Adhesives with high bonding strength are necessary for installation of glass mosaic tiles due to the delicate nature of the glass, and the manner in which they are manufactured. The adhesive should not be too harsh or the glass might lose its shine.

Also, glass tiles in general are translucent, and you don’t want adhesives to be visible through these tiles or the pieces to be assembled unevenly. It is preferable to get expert help for a professional look and finish.
