When it comes time to remodel a bathroom Raleigh homeowners are faced with the decision of either installing a tile shower or a prefabricated shower. Tile showers offer a number of advantages—namely enormous design versatility when it comes to location and material. Here we’ll be comparing two popular tile shower materials: glass tile and stone tile. We encourage you to read on, and to consider adding a tile shower to your Raleigh home.
Tile showers can be made from a wide range of materials. Two popular materials often used are stone tile and glass tile. Glass tile is available in a wide range of shapes, sizes, colors, and levels of translucency. More so than stone tile, it offers a great deal of choice when it comes to the color of your tile shower. Homeowners often use glass tile to create highly customized tile showers.
Aside from its visual appeal glass tile is also resistant to the buildup of mildew and mold. This is an enormous benefit in consideration of the daily moisture that tile showers receive. With a glass tile shower you won’t have to worry about the eventual buildup of mold and mildew over the course of several years.
Similar to glass tile, stone tile is known for its durability and beauty. This tile is available in fewer colors than glass tile, but it offers natural color variation that glass tile simply can’t compete with. In many cases the decision between glass tile and stone tile is a matter of personal preference.
