Glass wall tiles used to be off limits as flooring materials for most people even a few years ago. But, with the advent of new and advanced technology, the situation is changing with each passing day. Glass tiles are now like a style statement, which when used in a room, can add a stunning effect to otherwise mundane looking rooms.
