In the pool, the glass pellets could not have another color.
Just walk into any building material store to come face to face with the immense variety of colors and shapes of glass inserts. And among so many possibilities, doubt becomes inevitable: “which color to use?”, “Which format to choose?” Or “how to combine the tablet with the rest of the decoration?” This post has been written. Check out the question and answer guide below and stay on top of everything with regard to glass inserts, so you can decide, once and for all, if this is the right coating for your home.
What are glass tablets?
Glass tablets are small pieces glued to a canvas or paper to be applied to the wall. The effect of the tiles is similar to that of tiles. Even the tablets are derived from this ancient technique. In Brazil the tablets began to appear in decoration from the 1930s.
In what environments can they be used?
Contrary to popular belief, Glass inserts can be used in dry and wet areas. That is, they are not limited to the kitchen and bathroom, although they are the places where the pieces are most used.
This is not for nothing either, since glass is a highly resistant material to moisture , absorbing only 0.05% water. Therefore, glass inserts turn out to be a great choice for wet and wet areas. However, its use can also extend to living and dining rooms, bedrooms, entrance halls and facades of houses.
What are the main advantages of using glass pellets?
One of the main advantages of the glass insert is the wide variety of colors, sizes and formats available.
Another advantage of glass inserts is their durability and strength, which is far superior to other materials such as ceramics, for example. The glare and transparency of the parts – they do not fade or lose their luster over time – is another positive point of the material.
Glass inserts are easy to clean and do not require major maintenance, since Glass is a material that does not retain dirt. Another good reason to adhere to the use of glass inserts is their timeless feature, ie the coating is always high in the decoration.
And what are the disadvantages of the material?
The great ‘however’ of the glass inserts is the placement. The pieces need to be installed by someone who truly understands the subject, otherwise the attempt to change the look of the house with tablets may go down. And one of the great secrets of the beauty of the tablets is the grouting. Inadequate application of the grout may also favor the development of mold behind the pellets and become visible, which is not at all interesting.
Another caution, though not a disadvantage, is that the wall that will receive the glass tablets must be with the plaster well done and leveled, because as the tablets are translucent any defect of the wall will be in sight.
Different shades and shapes of glass inserts share the same space harmoniously.
On the one hand, the zigzag zage discreet of the glass pieces and the other, the unique color of the glass tablets; the earthy tone is the common part between them.
