Installing Glass Mosaic Tiles
Glass mosaic tile is easier to install than you think. Creating patterns with a multitude of tiny glass squares, this tile choice is elegant and sophisticated. If you are drawn to glass tiles but are nervous about installing them, here is some information to set your mind at ease.
Mosaic tiles are mounted on a mesh backing. Sold in one-foot square sheets, the tiles are hung in larger sections. Once the mastic is spread and the tiles are put in place, you can adjust individual tiles to correct the spacing and ensure a smooth look.
You want the mosaic tiles to march across the wall or floor in neat rows. Use a straight edge to help you get the lines straight and true. Large plastic putty knives can be used to ensure straight lines without damaging the tiles. Use a float to ensure that all the tiles are set to the same depth. You can also choose tiles with a paper cover to ensure that all lines are straight, true and even.
You can add beauty, light and color to your bathroom or kitchen by choosing glass mosaic tile. Easy to install and simple to clean, these tiles are an excellent choice for any project.
