Oceanside Glass Tiles come in a variety of finishes – translucent, iridescent, and matte – and in dozens of colors. They also come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Each batch is made-to-order which makes custom orders easy, convenient for any LEED AP designer or a commercial interior designer. Lead time for custom designs is only 4-6 weeks.

The darker colors of Oceanside Glass Tiles include a higher recycled glass content than the lighter colors. The ingredients are melted together, then ladled into iron molds to produce the tiles. The tiles are hand-cut, and the trimmings are recycled into the next batch of tiles.

Tile colors are obtained from natural earth oxide pigments. The iridescence is actually baked into the tiles, unlike many other manufacturers who just paint an iridescent coating onto their tiles.

Oceanside Glass Tiles can be used indoors or outdoors. Because these tiles are very strong they can be used in bathrooms, kitchens, swimming pools, fountains, or some low-traffic flooring areas. Tiles can be combined with ceramic or stone tiles to create unique green designs. These glass tiles are impervious to water. They are also heat and thaw resistant.
