8/6/2008 – Recycled Glass Tile Can Beautify Your Home

Press Release – August 2008 – Glass Tile RECYCLED GLASS TILE CAN BEAUTIFY YOUR HOME Lewis Floor & Home Offers New Line of Lewis Tile How can consumers beautify their homes — yet purchase products that actually benefit the environment? One important option is to use recyclable products! And–one of today’s hottest home decorating trends is recycled glass tile primarily used in kitchen and bathroom. “We were so excited when we received our first container of over 20,000 thousands square feet of recycled glass mosaic tile from China,” says Susie Axelrad, vice president Merchandise and Marketing, Lewis Floor & Home. “China has perfected the art of combining the best color and design in glass tile with the finest Italian technology and manufacturing processes. Currently, we stock 32 different colors and patterns in stock in our Northbrook warehouse. Every shade coordinates with the latest color pallets used in home design; floor tile trends; and most popular granite, marble and limestone countertops.” Today, more and more people are mixing mosaic tiles as complimentary wall tile in bathroom shower and tub surrounds rather than matching surfaces on floors and walls. Glass mosaics are also the most popular finish used in kitchen back splashes. Because natural stone countertops come in a wide variety enough to suit everyone’s personal style, the broad range of color in glass mosaic tile, give homeowners the perfect coordinate for natural stone whether you prefer light, dark or multicolored stone. Whether you accent natural stone or porcelain tile with added touches of glass, or fill entire walls with glass, the results are always smashing. Mosaic tiles come in 1″ x 1″ inch squares, even smaller 5/8″ x 5/8″ inch squares or two sizes of thin staggered set rectangular shapes. The entire collection is now available at Lewis Floor & Home for only $19.96 per 12″ sheet. “Even people on a budget can afford to bring glass tile into their home. It’s the easiest way to give your home a new updated look,” Axelrad says. “We searched long and hard to find the quality and design equal to that found in the Merchandise Mart and other designer tile shops in and around Chicago. In addition, we purchased in such large quantities so not only is our pricing the best, but our customers can be assured of immediate delivery.” At the DreamHome, the Design House in the Merchandise Mart, an entire wall of tile was the backdrop of the master bed shown in the bedroom vignette. Tile is easy to clean, adds color and dimension and is a design element that brings a feeling of elegance that cannot be duplicated by paint or wallpaper.
