Glass backsplash tiles come in a wide range of styles, sizes, shapes and finishes and can be used to compliment almost any type of decorating and design scheme. The purpose of a back protector behind a kitchen is to prevent stains on the wall surface. Boards are made of non-porous materials that do not absorb spills and splashes and therefore can be easily cleaned when accidents occur. Cristal offers a type of non-porous surface material that can be installed as a splash guard. If you want to install your glass tile backsplash to require minimal work, consider using a large glass tile as your dashboard.
A single piece of glass, like a piece of mirror, offers the same benefits of a board composed of multiple tiles, but does not require the same process of installing multiple pieces or filling around the pieces. Instead, install a large single glass backsplash tiles or mirror with the clips, which place on the perimeter of the mirror and screw directly into the hanging wall. If you like a patterned look, but want to maintain a solid color in the design, places a single color of the tiles. Start a solid color measurement design across the top, bottom and sides of the dashboard area and marking the midpoint on each side.
Then connect the midpoints of the sides and midpoints of the top and bottom to create a “t” through the space. Lay the tiles from where the two lines meet to complete a centered design. If you have two colors that you want to use in a tile design, toggle between each color of the tile to create a chessboard pattern. Another option is to put a row of one color of the tiles and then a row of the second color to create horizontal or vertical lines on the board.
As with a unique color design, you should still start positioning in the center of the space to ensure even, centered tile work. If you have an artistic touch, you can use glass backsplash tiles to create a mosaic in the dashboard area behind a range. Before installing the tile on the wall, you must measure the area of drainage and mark an area of the same size on a flat surface with tape or chalk. Then, place the tiles inside the marked space to create the design, using a saw tile to cut mosaic tiles, if necessary. Once you have the finished design, transfer the mosaic for wall space piece by piece.
