A shining shower

23019498-eMetal tiles are elegant, modern and give a sophisticated touch to any project. We have seen them in many places: kitchens, bathrooms, feature walls, you name it. But it is almost impossible spot a metal tile installed in wet areas, such as showers or spas. The reason is pretty obvious: corrosion.

23019498-cBut even with all the corrosion issue in mind you can’t stop dreaming of a gorgeous metal look in your shower, we have good news. Thanks to a smart trick, this charming linear “metal” glass tile is suitable for wet areas (except pools). Yep. That’s right. You can install it in the shower or bathtub surrounds. Stop scratching your head in disbelief. The metal chips that you’ve seen, in fact, are glass chips that were electroplated, a process that gives them a metal look and feel without corrosion. Problem solved.

23019498-gThis crackled glass mosaic comes in 12”x12 mesh mounted sheets, has a glossy finish, and it is 3/8” (8mm) thick. Due the electroplating process, is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, showers, spas, and bathtub surrounds, but it is NOT recommended for pools.

23019498-dSo, what are you waiting for? Let’s start planning out that new and shining shower surrounded by this stunning “metal” glass tile. 😉

Coordinate this tile with your wall colors.
