Reasons to Install a Glass Splashback in Your Kitchen

Whether you're starting a home building project or doing something on a larger scale, you have to keep a lot of different elements in mind. You have to think about the quality of the contractors you hire, the environmental impact of the materials you select, and the building processes that are used in the project. You also have to think about time and budget constraints. That can be overwhelming, but this blog is here to shoulder some of the burden. My name is Jonathon, and I've been there.

Reasons to Install a Glass Splashback in Your Kitchen

Not only do glass splashbacks protect walls from food and grease, but they inject a burst of colour and texture into the space. Here are several reasons to introduce one of these beautiful elements into your kitchen.

Endless Colour Options

With endless colour choice, glass splashbacks offer design versatility. You can back paint the glass, selecting between diverse hues, shades and variations from a colour chart.  Pair a deep red splashback with black lower cabinetry, against a white benchtop and upper cupboards. Or install a bright blue splashback, set amidst a sea of white contoured cabinets for a chic coastal look. Alternatively, spread warm-mocha across counters and splashback to create a seamless impression. With so many subtle hues to choose from, you can precisely match the splashback to fit within any decor.

Print a Scene

Rather than sticking with a solid colour, print a digital image of your choice on the back of the splashback. Create a work of art in your kitchen with a picture of rolling mountain ranges, waves tumbling across the sand or underwater scenes of seaweed and fish. Or else, add depth and dimension with printed images of marble or bricks. Remember, when selecting a vision, to account for the shape of the splashback area, which is typically broad and low. A tall and narrow portrait picture won't fit into the space. 

Durable & Tough

A splashback sees a hive of activity day to day, encircling the space where food preparation and cooking takes place. So it's endurance and resilience is crucial. Splashbacks use toughened safety glass, which has five times the strength of an ordinary pane. Because it undergoes a unique tempering process, this safety glazing resists heat and so is ideal for wall areas behind hot stovetops. Glass splashbacks typically endure for many years.

Brightens Up the Kitchen

A glass splashback can help you to create a bright, airy, welcoming space by bouncing light around the kitchen. Its polished surface will make the most of both natural and artificial light. Sitting behind countertops, splashbacks are in the perfect place to enhance illumination across the benchtop, making life easier when cooking and preparing food. Combine with under cabinet lighting to create a sophisticated feel at night.

Easy to Clean

Without troublesome grout that collects grease and grime, smooth glass makes maintenance a breeze. Use regular glass detergent or a microfibre cloth for quick and easy cleaning. You can forget about scrubbing grout and trying to get into the crevices between tiles. Instead, spend your time enjoying your beautiful kitchen.
