Are you looking to install a new kitchen backsplash or featured bathroom wall and are interested in using glass tile? Southeastern Tile Connection is here to shed light on some of the benefits of glass tile to help you determine if this beautiful material is right for your next project.

Unmatched Beauty

With a variety of colors and shimmering finishes to choose from, glass tile is one of the most elegant, clean, and contemporary materials to add a pop of personality to your space. The translucent glass draws the eye and makes a statement no matter the size of your room. Redo a whole room or create a featured pattern wall—the possibilities to mix and match are endless.

Makes Spaces Feel Larger

Glass tile can often make spaces feel larger and brighter by bouncing light throughout a room. That being said, glass tile could especially benefit a small power room, crowded kitchen, narrow entryway, or cluttered laundry room.

Durable and Easy to Clean

Glass tile is hygienic and incredibly easy to clean. Grime, grease, splashes, and fingerprints are a breeze to wipe clean with a bit of all-purpose cleaner or soapy water. This shimmering showstopper is extremely durable as well, as it is impenetrable by water with an absorbency rate of 0%. Glass tile requires little to no maintenance and upkeep other than routine cleaning.


If you are an environmental steward, glass tile may be the right material for your next project as they are often made of recycled materials. Even if the material you choose is not made of reused products, all glass tiles are 100% recyclable at the end of their lifespan and take less energy to produce than most other tiles.


If you’re looking for a beautiful, low-maintenance material for your next project, glass tile is a great choice. With a multitude of colors and styles, you’ll find the perfect material to make your home shine.
