Beyond the Backsplash: Creative Ways to Use Denver Glass Tile in Your Home


October 17, 2018

If you’re in love with the beauty of glass tile—and who isn’t?—you might be thinking about ways to incorporate it into your home. You probably already have a backsplash in your kitchen. Maybe you have even created a unique shower with Denver glass tile. Now you are wondering how else you can incorporate the beautiful look of glass into your home design.
Here are some ideas:

Create a Glass Tile Fireplace Hearth

A lot of people might not consider using glass for their hearth, but glass makes a gorgeous surrounding for your fireplace that is highly durable. Each individual glass tile might not be strong on its own, but when you put them together, they can withstand almost anything! 
The reflection of the fire in the glass tiles makes your fireplace look bigger and gives it a whimsical, cozy feel that other natural stones just can’t capture.
Glass tiles also do not stain, and they are easy to keep clean. 
You can choose blends of colors and shapes for your hearth that will create a dazzling effect, truly making your fireplace a focal point of the room. Check out this guide for creating your glass hearth: Glass Tile Fireplace.

Create a Glass Tile Accent Wall

Take your walls one step further than a simple backsplash and create an entire accent wall. You can extend an existing backsplash to go up the entire wall. Or you can even get creative and create a glass tile wall that doesn’t even need a backsplash. Your biggest problem will probably be deciding on color and style since there are so many options available.

Create a Glass Tile Backyard

No—we are not talking about the pool area. Glass can be used creatively in other ways in your backyard:
  • Use glass tiles for a water feature or a fountain
  • Use glass tiles for your outdoor kitchen
  • Use glass tiles on benches or to create signs or other types of art
  • Use glass tiles to create a wall mural that can be a focal point for your yard
You can tie the design and colors into what is already on the inside of your home—or you can go in a different direction altogether. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity.
Another idea is to use glass tile for your flooring, although this is not for everyone. This blog post can help you decide whether this is right for you: The Pros and Cons of Using Denver Glass Mosaic Flooring.
