Glass Splashbacks | 11 July 2020

Aesthetics

There is a huge colour selection available for glass splashbacks, including a range of quality paints and colours that can be found in the standard RAL colour chart. This means that you’ll be sure to find a splashback that perfectly matches your decor and have huge fun getting creative in the process.Glass splashbacks also have light reflecting abilities, giving the impression of making even the smallest kitchen space appear larger and brighter.

Affordable

While the initial cost of a glass splashback is likely to outweigh the cost of a tiled splashback, toughened glass is much stronger and more durable than tiles, and after the initial installation, the glass can be left in place for many years. Tiles, however, will need to be regularly re-grouted and re-tiled to continue looking good over the years, making it a more expensive purchase than a glass splashback in the long run.  

Protection

Most commonly found in a kitchen, the splashback sits behind the hob and catches all those splashes, stains and damaging cooking oils so they’re not damaging your paintwork or tiling. Have you ever tried to get a sticky tomato sauce or grease stain off a painted wall? If so, you’ll appreciate having a splashback. Maybe you plan to site tiles behind your hob. If so, you’ll find these are easier to clean than painted surfaces, but nonetheless, cooking residue can gather in the seams and staining can occur, resulting in the need to replace or renew the grouting over time. Cooking on your hob also produces steam which can damage most other surfaces – but a splashback won’t be harmed by this. Simply wipe off condensation from time to time to keep the surface sparkling.

Hygienic and Easily Cleaned

Hygiene is more important than ever to families these days. As mentioned above, tiles will tend to gather food splatters in the grout joints. This can stain and even cause mould. As a splashback is made from one single piece of smooth glass with no seams or joins, it’s a much simpler matter to wipe the surface clean with a glass cleaner and a soft, lint-free cloth.

Easy to install

The installation process of a glass splashback is significantly easier than that of a tile splashback, requiring less messy equipment like tile cutters and grout to complete the installation. Those are performing benefits. Those are also invitation for you to follow the lead. If you have budget, make the improvement and add glass splashbacks on your kitchen.
