Retaining the Beauty of Denver Glass Tile in Your Home

August 22, 2018

Glass tile is popular because of its brilliant shine and the beauty it adds to any living space. Typically used in kitchens and bathrooms, Denver glass tile can be designed simply or intricately, depending on personal preference and taste.
If you’re still in the planning stages of choosing the right tile for your remodeling project, here are some tips from the experts at HGTV. Here is a selection of some of the glass tiles we have to offer.
Once you’ve decided to use glass tile in your home, you want to make sure you take care of it so its beauty lasts for years to come. Glass tile is easy to maintain, but there are certain precautions homeowners will want to take.

The Basics of Caring for Glass Tile

Most people use glass tile because of its inherent beauty, but it does need to be kept free of dust and particles. Whether you’ve used it for a backsplash or for flooring, you’ll want to wipe it daily with a soft dust cloth to keep it clean.
It’s best to stick with natural products, such as vinegar and baking soda, to clean glass tiles. If you are using baking soda, be sure it is well dissolved in water before you apply it so you don’t scratch the surface of the tiles.

Glass Tile in the Kitchen

The natural sheen of glass tile means that the grease and grime that collects as a result of cooking won’t show up right away. But it’s a good idea to wipe the tiles down periodically with a mixture of water and vinegar (half of each). You can spray this solution on the tiles and let it soak there for a few minutes before wiping it clean. You can follow up with straight water and a soft towel to ensure there are no water spots. Microfiber cloths work particularly well.

Glass Tile in the Bathroom

Glass tile is frequently used in bathrooms because of its easy maintenance properties, but eventually, soap scum and hard water stains will develop. Clean weekly with a vinegar and water solution. For soap scum that has built up, you can spray the area with the solution and let it soak for 15 minutes to allow the vinegar time to work. Wipe the area with a soft cloth, repeating as necessary.
