FLOORING: A Glass Floor, REALLY??

 

Asheville Real Estate Journal

 

Knowing her aptitude for finding excellent products,  it was really no surprise when, on a recent visit to one of the homes our Green-Builder friend had under construction here in Asheville, we discovered glass tile—and in a place we had not expected—on the floor of the laundry room! (see photo)

 

Glass Floor in Green-Built Home in Asheville

REALLY??  We knew that she is always on the lookout for "all-inclusive design" and sustainable elements she can incorporate in her projects. She is especially intrigued when elements not only are environmentally responsible, but infuse spaces with an artistic quality. But on the floor?

YES! This creative professional had assembled a gorgeous presentation of color and light. No trepidation when stepping on this recycled glass. It simply sparkles with an invitation to enter. As you can see by my photo, the surface offers an uncommon, yet very attractive look and feel. There is the glow of artisanship.

I just had to ask, “How is this glass on the floor working out?” 

“I’m very, very pleased!” she responded with enthusiasm.  “Glass on the floor, in this case, is not something to worry about. And caring for it is simple,” she explained... .

 

Benefits to Home Owners Near and Far:

I like the look of this floor.  I wonder how slippery it is when it's wet.

Is there a fish tank to accompany the clarity? I wonder. It does look intersting to me.

I'm wondering how this will wear over the years as compared to ceramic or porcelain tile.

I had to laugh when I read your remark ((*:*))..I could almost see little fish models in the glass...IT is an interesting idea...so far it seems to have worked out just fine.
