When it comes to designing fresh and modern poolscapes, glass tile mosaics are one of the hottest new trends – and we want to teach you the best ways to use them. Glass tiles are durable, with a non-porous surface perfect for wet environments, and have the most diverse options for shape and color. The translucent finish also adds dimension and iridescence that cannot be attained with stone or porcelain.
We’ve rounded up five different ways you can incorporate glass tile mosaics into your next pool project – scroll down and take a look.
