White glass subway tile VS white porcelain or ceramic

8 years ago

I love the look of glass subway tile on a backsplash. However, when they're white, they often take on that blue-green-ish hue, once installed. Anyone know of a white subway glass tile (product/brand) that will not look blue or green?

I realize that going with porcelain, marble, or ceramic negates this problem. But I don't want the high maintenance of marble in the kitchen...and porcelain or ceramic are nice but I love glossy glass. If I can't find a white glass tile without this problem, I'll go with one of those though. But I worry that they will look bathroom-y in the kitchen...

Note: I did see one white glass product that was "treated" to prevent the blue from happening, but it was $24/sf!!
