Glass tiles come in a range of colors, from muted tones to bold, vibrant options. Consider installing a pale green glass tile backsplash in a classic kitchen that boasts simple white wood cabinetry and crisp white marble countertops. If your kitchen feel is contemporary, then your choices range from plain, clear glass to bold tiles, like red or orange. Vintage kitchens work well with a mix of colorful recycled glass tiles that add to the kitchen's down-to-earth feel.

Simple, flat glass backsplash tiles can also provide an elegant focal point that suits modern kitchens with a classic edge. The end result is captivating but nor overdone, rounding out the finished design of a kitchen area.

Glass tiles are installed in a similar manner to that of ceramic tiles, using mortar and a flat-edge trowel. They are a fairly simple do-it-yourself option.
