Is your kitchen or bath looking a little boring? Are you ready for a change that will make it dramatic and fun? Do you want your friends to walk in and say “WOW”? Well I have the perfect solution for your kitchen and bath décor problem, a glass backsplash! What is great about glass tile is that it’s unique, fun and you can do so many different things with it and even if your friends use the same tile as you, it’s still going to look different then your tile.


Glass tile comes in different shapes, sizes and types. You can get it is webbing that allows for a pretty easy instillation and you can get bigger pieces separately to create your own look. Sometimes you want to mix and match the two to create an interesting and unique look, but make sure to plan and sketch out the tile plan before putting the tile on the wall.


A backsplash can really change how a kitchen or a bath feels. It can create drama, relax you or even make you hungry, cold, or warm. It can completely change the look of your room and is not extremely expensive to do.

Do you have a glass tile backsplash? How do you like it?

Rejuvenate Your Outdoor Space


Sometimes it’s just better to keep what you have, not only is it great for the environment but it’s also amazing for your wallet. You can’t always keep what you have but when it comes to your outdoor space, you just might be able to make those items last just a little bit longer and create a bit of new style in the process.

One way to do this is by checking out a refinishing service, like the services offered by, these services allow you to keep your existing furniture for years to come. Most companies will do almost any brand and product, many offer both residential and commercial applications and in the end you really can save yourself some money as high quality outdoor furniture can be expensive.

You can also look at refinishing more then just your furniture, you can fix up your old grill instead of getting a new one. Reuse old pots and containers to make garden features such as water features, bird baths or just general sculpture work. You can even get your kids, if you have them, in on the action by making bird feeders and ferrie homes to put in your yard.

How do you recycle to rejuvenate your yard?

Elevate Your Kitchen Décor

Kitchens are the heart of the home, they come in all shapes sizes and colors, but without some creativity you can’t give your kitchen the pizzazz is deserves to have and the wow factor you want it to.

One way you can make your kitchen proud is to use kitchen tile as a backsplash and focal point tile can really create that wow effect and give your friends and family something to talk about too.



Using unique tile like the one above can be a great way to show off your unique personality and style. This makes me thing of a warm exotic climate, but who knows maybe this kitchen is really located in Alaska!


Using different types of tile can also create some great drama in your kitchen. This modern look is emphasized by the chrome and black tiles. it’s a fun look that still is understated enough that it will last a long time.


The last look is one that I really love as it’s fun and different. It’s whimsical and fun while still being something that you will not get tired of quickly or want to get rid of any time soon.
