Finishing Sicis glass tile backspalsh
ritalu
October 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I will be installing a mosaic glass tile backsplash on my vanity. My former vanity top was cultured marble and the backsplash was also on sides of vanity. Now that it's been removed, I have damaged drywall there. I am not sure how to install my Sicis glass mosaic tile, specifically whether it should also be on the sides or only in the back and to simply repair the drywall on the sides and paint it but leave it with no glass tile.
If I go with glass tile on sides, how do I finish the edges? Do I actually need to finish them with a trim of some kind or can I just leave them as they are, just with the grouted glass mosaic being the edge.

Hard to picture, but most glass tiles are edged to self finish; i.e., no other edging needed

I am using Sicis glass mosaic tile. It is very thin (2mm) and translucent.

Would you recommend extending the glass tile backsplash to the sides of my vanity or limiting it to the area under the mirror?

I wasn't sure how to add photos once discussion thread was opened so I started a new discussion thread under the same name.

Just saw...continue on the sides. Edges should be fine.

Thank you. I thought the same. But I also saw examples of the sides being marble (I will be installing marble top) and the back being glass mosaic. Which option would you suggest?

Partially depends on budget...partially on how well the marble and glass go together overall...I would say best to just stick with the glass.
