We provide and install Backsplash
How is Backsplash Eco-Friendly?
Backsplash is generally composed of small tiles made out of a hard wearing material such as stone, ceramic or glass. Their purpose is purely esthetical and is the one thing in your remodeling that can wait indefinitely until you find exactly what you want.
What makes our tiles Eco-friendly is the guaranteed from our manufacturers that their fabrication is as sustainable as possible; production, transportation and distribution. Some of our manufacturers also propose our customers with recycle content products to make it even more Eco-Friendly.
The most common materials used for the production of backsplashes are glass and ceramic. The use of glass has been dated as early as 3500BC, since then its production has grown exponentially. Glass doesn’t biodegraded and this is because once we crush the earth minerals to turn them into glass they’re basically glass forever, and ultimately they finish polluting our landfills. Ceramic suffers from similar problems and we invite you to our “Product-Tile” section to know a little bit more about it.
By buying a product containing recycle content you are helping considerably in the cleaning of our landfills.
We invite you to watch this video and to watch the process of making recycled glass tiles;

As mentioned above, backsplash is purely esthetical and isn’t need for the well-being of your space. However, backsplash brings that “je ne sais quoi” that makes a whole space look unique.
When it comes to the creation of your backsplash the possibilities are endless in order to craft the most personal of designs; you can decide what material you want to use: glass, ceramic, stone, metal, etc. but you can also mix and match them. You can decide what geometrical form will best fit your space; from squares to rectangles to circles you have free will in creating that backsplash that would scream – Me!
The fact that each material has its own characteristics makes the selection process even more interesting, since one material or the mix of several of them can complement beautifully with what you already have. For example, some recycle glass tiles have an iridescence color (that special color from soap bubbles) which is not found in any other type of tile. This can be use beautifully as an accent tile over an existing ceramic backsplash, or you can also blend it with stone tiles so to create a contrast between the two materials. This are just a few ideas out of a million offer by this world of colors and shapes!
To see all of those materials and more we suggested you to come to our showroom. You can also click on the links below of some of our suppliers.
