Glass is used by man for thousands of years, it is all around us. Recently, it actively roamed in the bathrooms. The development of technologies for the manufacture of glass has changed significantly since the time of its invention, today the species impact resistant glass and do not give the fragments, which allows glass and shells, and glass bath. Ingenious step to create a unique interior decoration of bathrooms was the creation of decorative tiles made of glass. Glass decorations for ceramic tiles and floor tiles, made of glass, which appeared on the market just a few years ago, initially perceived refined sophistication. However, the beauty was also surprisingly practical, durable and hygienic - a different set of advantages simply must be the key to a bright future.
Made of glass tile has all the positive properties of ceramics, but at the same time and some of its specific advantages. First, it is perfectly seasoned, clean geometric shapes and dimensions - in the manufacture of ceramics, in contrast, it is almost not deformed, that allows a very precise degree of calibration.
Second, glass tile - a material with very high specification. As an ancient vase, it almost does not wear out. Is not that what finally a dream come true for eternal beauty? Tempered glass is practically not affected by time, you can not mess up, unless, of course, do not strive for this purpose, because it does not react with anything, including the acid!
Third, security. For any individual, the glass seems to be a hazardous material: Yes suddenly broken, injure. But nothing like a modern glass tiles can occur. Tempered glass has a few other features. If it beats, and then on the principle of auto glass: do not give sharp edges and just poured - injuries can not be obtained. Safety is also another aspect - safe walking, that is when you walk through the material without fear of slipping. The special texture of tiles designed for floor finishes, such that it is completely non-slip. Mosaic same elements generally have the highest rate of anti - at the expense of the old tired gaps between the elements that create the effect of a refrain sole.
Fourth, high hygiene glass surface is smooth and completely non-porous (unlike ceramics), easy to clean any glass cleaners that are suitable including for complex textures.
It's no secret that today's oversaturated market, in particular finishing materials can be won only interesting design proposals. Something special that will have all the positive properties of previous material, but have interesting new qualities.
In our case, this method of applying color, pattern: well-known manufacturers apply it on the back side, which makes decorating more than a long life. The paint is applied in several layers, the latter being defensive and does not react with the paint putty, jointing materials, and the environment, which can spoil it. It uses only super-clean glass, which does not distort color because it does not refract the light passing therethrough. Even if the outer surface is scratched or messed up, the color layer will remain intact. The effect of "if it is wet mirror" on the edges never occur.
Glass tile is good in all respects and complies with all building codes. And a major part in it, of course, the aesthetic aspect. Glass extraordinarily diverse. Glass tile is worthy to recognize a real boon for a designer worthy of the material for the artist. It offers incredible opportunities in the interiors, allowing implement even the most fantastic projects. The incredible range of colors, a sense of inner volume, a large number of various formats from almost mosaic to large format, a variety of options borders, a variety of patterns and pictures ...
Special tiles takes place which simulates ice, phosphorus, cobalt, silver, granite, etc. The very idea to create imitations of other materials using glass-is not new. Find new forms of the glass, give these tiles ergonomics - these are problems to be solved by the manufacturers.
Touch the glass, to feel its undulating surface, to look through it to the light, to evaluate its flickering of fluorescent - that's what's important. It is these qualities of glass and its unique interaction with the rays of light, which has long been appreciated by those who produce chandeliers and sconces, prompted the artist Raperta Scott's idea to create special lighting in the bathroom through the glass tiles, so that the rays came from the inside glass. The glass on this occasion it took a special, transparent, just enough to make light of the unusual, magical. Thus was born the unique tile Luma. The light seemed to go right out of the glass is refracted in tiny air bubbles.
So, just clicking a switch, you run a slight "atmospheric" lighting of the space, creating a kind of special feeling. At the same author we find other amazing solutions, for example, the individual colored pieces seemed to be floating within the glass, creating a striking three-dimensional effect. Or eternally fashionable strip, where the artist uses a funny effect "stunning" tone.
Some manufacturers even offer a tile with a holographic effect. Very interesting version of "antique" - when the tiles are to be specially made old, worn out by Matt down and slightly chipped at the edges ... In short, virtually no limit to imagination.
Most full coverage of walls or floor of the room with tiles of glass is unavailable pleasure. Or is there a desire to get so fashionable now a combination of different materials. There are no problems, the glass is quite compatible with ceramic tiles. This contributes to the standard thickness - 8 mm. To lay the used one and the same materials that allows you to create interesting compositions of them. Very relevant collections that are equal mix of ceramics and glass, originally conceived and implemented by designers who are interested in the game textures, depth perception difference ...
An increasing number of collections of ceramic tiles from reputable manufacturers include glass borders, decors, slit elements and inserts in some quantity. This trend is particularly clear upward trend as a unifying point for glass and ceramics.
Different perspectives of glass tiles as trim for the pool. It does not react with water and stunningly beautiful, especially when combined with the correct lighting.
Now glass tile - it's only about 5% of the market, but it's the first thing you notice in any salon or specialty store. Know-how, to which it certainly applies to attract connoisseurs of quality and beautiful things, who understand that you have to pay. And expensive. Can we now talk seriously about that in the near future will compete with glass tile ceramic? Over time it is possible depreciation of production technology. This would allow manufacturers to make glass squares public goods, and designers - to achieve perfection in finishing, lightness and shine, and the owners - to create a good mood for the time they spend in the walls of your bathroom.
Cutting is carried out using a circular saw discs designed for glass.
