Tile is pretty much a fixture of kitchen décor. However, if you’re redoing your kitchen or building from the ground up and want an environmentally conscious space, you can’t do much better than recycled backsplashes. You can get the beautiful look you want and make sure your kitchen was completely sustainably sourced. Use these tips from Trilogy Partners to learn more about common types of recycled tile.

  • Use glass tile for a backsplash if you want a more modern look. While you might see some variation between tiles, it’s generally very pleasing to the eye, and is often the case with new tile as well. Recycled glass tile also uses only 30% of the energy required for new glass tile.
  • Consider ceramic tile for your backsplash if you prefer a more uniform look. Unlike some recycled tile, ceramic is typically made into a uniform color that’s ideal for clean décor styles and bold, bright or darker colors, as well as white.
  • Try metal tile for a bold, sexy look! Making recycled metal uses just 5% of the energy needed for new metal tile too.
