Question about frosted glass floor tile: scratch easily?

NewEnglandSaraFebruary 3, 2012

Hi there, we are looking at splurging on some gorgeous glass floor tile from Interstyle for our half bath since it is only 30 square feet. The tile comes in beautiful designs that are high gloss glass with frosted patterns. I noticed that there are a few scuffs on some of the samples. I am wondering how quickly/easily the tile will scratch. Any experience with it? It looks gorgeous now, but will I be disappointed with myself a year from now when I have a scuffed floor? :-)

Here is the link to their floor tile:

Maybe it will matter less if I get one of the styles with a less exact design such as Cello?

Thanks in advance for any input!

It'd be OK for a master where you were always barefoot, but for a powder room where your guests wear shoes, it's not gonna work. Put it on the walls instead if you want to use it there.

What hollysprings said...and yes...you can track grit onto any floor by using outside shoes indoors, which results in abrasion of the floor surface and the scuffs that are the result.
