GLASS: Not a passing trend, it equals stone in the number of times it's used in modern baths and kitchens.You can use simple back-painted glass tiles in a 3 x 6 subway stile style, install handmade poured glass mosaics, and even combinations of colors and sizes to suit any style home. Glass is durable and non porous, so spills and splatters simply wipe off. Linear patterns are popular and glass tile mixed with stone is also a popular solution, offering exciting ways to coordinate stone flooring and wall mosaic applications.
CERAMIC: Made in nearly any shape, texture, or color. Classic subway tile is becoming very popular again in both sleek and modern interiors and more embellished traditional ones. Many companies make beautiful, complex ceramic mosaic patterns for a distinctive design statement. Ceramic tile’s primary advantage is that the glazed surface is very durable and maintenance free, so it makes a great backsplash surface.
