When the time comes to renovate the kitchen, it is often difficult to find an affordable design that both the husband and wife can agree upon. By nature, they generally have different visions for both style and budget. One particular couple wanted a high-end, stylish and affordable look that they both would enjoy, so they consulted interior designer Eli Mechlovitz from GlassTileStore.com. After consultation, Mechlovitz suggested they decorate with dark-shaded glass tile and mosaics, one of the hottest trends in the interior design industry.

For those unfamiliar with the glass tile trend, it can be described as a more stylish, luxurious decorating option as compared to ceramic tiles. One of the greatest characteristics in glass tile is the uniqueness – it is available in a wide range of colors, textures, shapes, blends and designs. Attempting to meet both their style needs, Mechlovitz recommended brown glass tile, specifically Zen Espresso, an affordable option from GlassTileStore. The earthy brown blend of Zen Espresso would create a modern and chic space in this kitchen, one masculine and traditional enough for the husband, and one eclectic, trendy and unique enough for the wife.

After installation, the dark glass tile, surrounded by the airy light cabinetry, provided a warm and luxurious feel for the kitchen. The different shades of brown transformed the previously dull kitchen, and offered an aesthetically pleasing pattern that perfectly united the upper white cabinetry with the lower dark cabinetry. The couple never realized there was a style that could accommodate both their needs so well. Extremely pleased with the results, they asked Mechlovitz back later this month, this time for consultation on their bathroom.
