Miramar, FL (PRWEB) November 24, 2009 -- Beauty and environmental responsibility are the hallmark of Granite Transformations' newest glass mosaic tiles - Cosmic, White Shadow and Unity.

The recycled glass used in its manufacture produces a translucent luster that adds beauty and depth to kitchen backsplashes, fireplace surrounds, bathroom vanities or almost any place that needs a splash of color and style.
Using every-day recycled bottles and glass containers Granite Transformations produces 15 different colored mosaic tiles that make up the "Feel" collection. The new Cosmic, White Shadow and Unity mosaics combine warm shades of tan, brown and red glass in varying patterns.
"At Granite Transformations we like to say that 'green' can be any color you want," says Carl Griffenkranz, Vice President of Marketing for Granite Transformations. "By using recycled glass to make these mosaic tiles we save energy and resources while producing beautiful mosaic tiles in a wide range of colors."
Tiles are made using traditional ¾" x ¾" recycled glass mosaic pieces that are then formed into pre-grouted 4-foot by 10-foot sheets eliminating the time consuming and messy grouting process. Lasting beauty is ensured by the use of latex grout that will not crack and never needs sealing, virtually eliminating the problem of ugly, stained grout. Resistant to chemicals, stains, water absorption and frost they can be used in either exterior or interior locations on both flat and round surfaces.
