Your new go-to cleaner – safe enough for the kitchen, tough enough for the garage

You’ve just seen the last of your relatives off to the airport, you plop down on the couch, kick up your feet and take a look around only to realize your home is a disaster.

How could this have happened?

Maybe it was the Christmas Party with 15 of your closest friends and family. Or the New Years Eve bash with your old college roommates.

Is that a merlot stain? How do I get red wine out again?! 

You’re about to dig your bucket of cleaners out from the garage when you remember the gift your eco-conscious Aunt gave you and head for the kitchen instead.

Hmmm… All Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser. I guess I’ll give it a shot…

A few dirty rags later, you sit down and take a look around your now spotless home.

Those dried cake batter splatters your nephew made on the cupboard? Clean.

The pasta sauce explosion in the microwave? Spotless.

Soap scum all over the guest bathroom? Non-existent.

All Purpose Cleaner & Degreaser even took care of those mystery spots on the carpet. You reflect, in awe that one bottle was able to go from the kitchen to the bathroom to your living room without skipping a beat.

And with enough time to binge watch my DVR.

The Newest Blue of all the Hues – YInMn

There is a brand new shade of blue that was just stumbled upon through a chemis-tastrophe and it’s absolutely BLUE-tiful! Scientists discovered the color accidentally mixing Yttrium, Indium and Manganese together at 2000 degree F.

new-blue-YInMn-sparks-creative-color-application-with-glass-tile

They’ve dubbed the color YInMn Blue. What makes it so cool? Besides the fact that it’s blue . . . The pigment’s crystal structure keeps it from fading, even when exposed to oil or water. Now it’s being used in sketches, paintings and it’s even being considered for rooftops as a solution to keep buildings cooler.

 So to throw it up to the scientist of the YInMn creation, we celebrate the beauty of blue in all of its tiled glory.

Oceanside Glasstile Lightens Up This Spring

New Colors Create Infinite Possibilities

 Carlsbad, Calif. – Immediate Release – This May Oceanside Glasstile is playing with subtle hues for their Spring Launch 2015. Following up the warm reception from last fall’s launch of “newtrals”, Oceanside Glasstile introduces three new translucent glass colors to their palette – Infinite, Sandbar, and Silverlight – as well as three new blends – Cosmopolitan, Champagne, and Magnetic.

The muted palette – a sandy beach where ocean skies meet the silver horizon – evokes peace and well being. “We’re opening up new design possibilities to create flowing gradients and tonal variations within the ‘lighter is lovelier’ trend,” shares Johnny Marckx, Executive Vice President. Infinitely customizable – relax with some play time on our blend tools. These friendly gems could make an appearance in your next project. Available in three finishes – Iridescent, Non-Iridescent, and Matte – Silverlight, Infinite, and Sandbar are the translucent neutrals you’ve been looking for.

Beach Tile

These same colors also inspired three new blends. Cosmopolitan is a modernists dream with its soft grey palette; while Magnetic plays up the blue undertones in the coolest of greys. Champagne’s effervescent warmth is like its namesake captured in glass. Cathy Aroz, Design + Merchandising Visionary calls the new blends “subtle, sophisticated, and classic” – a perfect addition to your installation.

All Color needs Form, so we included a new (well, old) shape to the Muse mosaic collection. This character is a six-sided chameleon – Hexagon in all its classic glory is finding new interpretations in the modern meets retro movement. Now that it’s back to claim its rightful place at the pattern party, we wanted to put our color into this simple and joyful motif.

Oceanside Glasstile’s Muse collection gains a new pattern with the release of a clean edge 1-5/8” Hexagon. While the Tessera collection’s rustic edge 1 ¾” Hexagon has been a staple of the Oceanside Glasstile catalog, the new Muse Hexagon brings a refreshing take on this versatile shape. Johnny Marckx, Executive Vice President shared the inspiration behind the Muse Hexagon “it brings balanced proportions with a scale that works in a variety of applications”. Available in any color or blend, Oceanside Glasstile’s Muse Hexagon is the perfect touch of refinement for any residential or commercial project.

Recycling is in the DNA of Oceanside Glasstile. Each year they melt more than 2 million pounds of post-consumer bottle glass. The result – a gem-like substance crafted into stunning glass tile. They continuously strive for improvements in energy efficiency, and maintain a closed loop manufacturing process where they re-melt all of their own glass trimmings. Manufacturing innovative products with a sustainable process is an important business value, but . . . that’s just where the fun begins. Encouraged by the leadership of the company, Oceanside Glasstile employees support all kinds of causes both near and far. Embracing social responsibility, they find joy in restoring orphanages, building schools, planting new trees and collaborating with the generation of tomorrow. Both home and commercial designs will get a dose of good vibes when they incorporate this environmentally-aware, socially-responsible product into their work-in-progress.

Stunning Neutrals and Modern Tile Sizes Create a New Sense of Sophistication

Oceanside Glasstile is flirting with sophistication for their Fall Launch 2014. After releasing a trio of brilliant blues to the market this past summer a call to the softer side was made – sophisticated neutrals are the newest addition to their extensive color palette. Echoing the sentiment of this year’s Fashion Week Oceanside Glasstile hits the market with a fresh interpretation on a classic. The new 2×8 field, Intro and Outro pieces are the ultramodern subway tiles of any designer’s dreams, combining dynamic bevels with a beautiful brick shape.

Beautiful bevel paired with sultry opaques make for a timeless tile installation

Through feedback from showrooms and design centers across the country, Oceanside Glasstile heard the demand for versatility and compatibility within their color palette. Merchandising Designer Cathy Aroz explains, “There was a call in the industry for a lighter color palette. These neutrals are timeless colors.” Timeless indeed, this palette of opals sets the perfect foundation for layering neutrals and accent colors.

 

Inspired by a rolling coastal fog, Dove provides a cool undertone while Silk brings out the warmth in the purest of marbles. Available in three finishes – Iridescent, Non-Iridescent and Matte – Dove and Silk offer a cool soft grey or warm creamy notes to any blend. Satin’s fresh white offers a clean canvas to allow other colors to shine or as the lead in a modern setting. These NEWtrals inspired two new blends: Neblina and Solstice, and can be customized to create a unique blend to fit any space.

Oceanside Glasstile’s Casa California collection updates a classic look with their new 2×8 field, Intro and Outro pieces. As Merchandising Designer, Cathy Aroz states, “The idea behind Intro and Outro was to embrace a clean, modern aesthetic that still connects to traditional styles. With Outro you get your classic bevel design, while Intro gives you that element of surprise with an innovative inner bevel.” The 2×8 flat field piece rounds out the collection’s offering of slimmer, longer subway tiles. All of the new pieces are available in Oceanside Glasstile’s full color palette.
