Spruce up the kitchen with a glass splashback

Spruce up the kitchen with a glass splashback

We all get bored with the decor in our house from time to time and start to consider what we can do to freshen things up. Often this is all we end up doing, a quick lick of paint here and there to make the room look a little cleaner, but frequently, the colour we use is the same as before, so the novelty of a freshly decorated room will be rather short lived.

Sometimes, we opt for a radical colour change, only to realise that what looked good on a two foot square from a match pot, looks overwhelming when the entire room is painted. We then go down a path of repeated experimentation of over painting rooms again and again, in the vain hope of settling on a colour that we can live with.

The above applies to any room in the house, but the heart of the home has always been the kitchen and this room demands special consideration when it comes to redecorating. It not only has to look good, but it must be functional and easy to maintain in a clean and healthy state too.

Clean and hygienic and great value for money too

Sometimes, the best solution can be the simplest and a glass splashback could well be that solution. A splashback made from toughened glass can not only transform your kitchen with the least amount of effort or disruption, it will give you a hygienically clean surface that will be a breeze to keep clean, no matter how long you have it for.

No other medium is as easy to keep hygienically clean as glass. Glass will be the smoothest material that can be used, so nothing will be able to stick to it for long. Glass is impermeable, so you will never have to worry about stains either. This fact alone is a major consideration, as the spices and colours from a rich tomato sauce or a curry can permanently stain a more textured or porous surface, ruining the look of your kitchen and costing you money to have the surface replaced.

Another good reason to opt for a glass splashback is that they are seamless. No grime, dirt or bacteria will be able to accumulate in any little nooks and crannies on the glass splashback, simply because there are none. Ceramic tiles and grout are a magnet for such impurities and can look grimy and drab soon after fitting.

Break the monotony with a glass splashback

One of the great things about a glass splashback is the fact that it will transform your kitchen, often without having to make any other changes.

One recent client of ours had a kitchen that she absolutely hated. The kitchen was perfectly functional, the cupboards and units were not even that old and were sound in construction, but she felt the whole ensemble was tedious and boring. She just didn't feel inspired when in there!

Her intention was to have a new glass splashback fitted around the kitchen to replace the old white ceramic tiles. Once the splashback was in place she would then decide how best to tackle the rest of this 'miserable' rooms decor. However, once the splashback was fitted, she realised that there was actually nothing wrong with the kitchen per se, it was the monotony of white cupboards and units, white tiles and white walls. Add to this the plethora of white electrical goods and it is little wonder she felt so little inspiration when in her kitchen.

Our client chose a rather bold purple glass splashback, with random swirls of colour running throughout the gradient of colour. This was more than enough to break up the stark, clinical whiteness in the kitchen and she decided that no further redecorating or replacement of kitchen units was required after all. This realisation saved our client a vast sum of money and saved her and her family from weeks of disruption, having a new kitchen fitted.

What exactly is a splashback though?

A glass splashback is a great alternative for decorating kitchen walls, in fact, their use goes much further than the kitchen and people often have them in toilets, bathrooms, utility rooms and even living rooms.

Certainly for the kitchen, the glass splashback is fitted between the worktop and the wall units. The splashback serves as an impenetrable barrier to splashes and grease, thus protecting your kitchen's surfaces, but it also brings immense character and style to your kitchen interior.

The glass splashback plays an important role in your kitchen's overall design, by adding that classy and practical finishing touch to finished room.

Whether you decide on a clear splashback for simplicity and functionality, or you opt for one with a solid colour, a gradient, swirls and glitter, or select one with an imaginative pictorial design, you can be certain that your kitchen will be revitalised at a fraction of the cost of a completely new kitchen suite.

Glass kitchen splashbacks: Beautiful and functional

Essentially, a glass splashback plays a thoroughly functional role in the kitchen. It makes your kitchen much easier to keep clean. Anyone who has ever spent hours on end with scourers, brushes and neat bleach, trying to clean the grease and grime from tile grout will appreciate the effortless clean ability of a sparkling glass kitchen splashback. Toughened glass splashbacks are extremely easy to keep clean. A quick wipe with a sponge is enough to get rid of any splashes from the stove top or the food preparation surfaces. This is no doubt why the most common location for a glass splashback is directly behind the hob and near to other cooking areas.

Glass splashbacks around the kitchen

Some people decide on a short strip of glass for a splashback around the entire run of kitchen worktop, while other decide on a much larger area to be covered, typically between work top to the wall cupboard underside. Whichever you choose, cleaning will become much less of a chore and the look you will have achieved will be quite incredible.

Glass splashbacks with printed patterns

Most people tend to choose a glass splashback behind the hob to protect the paintwork and to make cleaning cooking splashes easier. These splashbacks are also heat-resistant and provide greater safety from fire.

With printed patterns, the world really is your oyster when it comes to choosing the perfect splashback to give your kitchen that much needed makeover.

There is a virtually endless array of patterns available. They could be regimented stripes, or dreamy, almost psychedelic swirls to bemuse the senses and delight the eye.

Should the patterns not appeal, you can select whichever solid colour or gradient that your heart desires. You are even able to have cityscapes, natural vistas, both from land or beneath the waves of the ocean. What could be a better way to transform your kitchen than to have a glorious marine scene in your kitchen, or maybe the plains of the Serengeti, with Zebras and Wildebeest grazing, under the watchful eye of the majestic lion?

Be unique with a printed glass splashback

Should you want genuine individuality, you can have a totally unique toughened glass splashback fitted too.

We offer a service where we can incorporate your very own photographs into the splashback itself. All we require is a high resolution image from you and we can do the rest.

Clearly, nobody is ever going to have the same kitchen splashback as you as the image will be one you have taken yourself. How's that for unique?

Having the scene from your dream holiday in the Bahamas immortalised in a glass kitchen splashback is something very special indeed and is enough to make anyone smile when walking into their kitchen. No matter what picture you decide on, we can help to make it a reality.

Revitalise your kitchen, but don't break the bank

So if you want to have a complete makeover in your kitchen, with new units, appliances, sinks and floors, be prepared to pay a tidy sum of cash. However, think back to our client who was adamant that her old kitchen had to go, until she saw it with just the addition of a toughened glass splashback. Like her, you too will be amazed at how just changing one thing in your kitchen can give the entire room a new lease of life.

Therefore, a new toughened glass splashback can help you to achieve the perfect look and feel to your kitchen, without having to decimate your hard earned savings. Why not take a look through some of the gallery examples on this website, to see just what can be achieved with the addition of just a toughened glass splashback?

In fact, studies have shown that attractive people have distinct advantages over less attractive people in our society.

Toughened glass will transform your home or office

People have always had an intense interest in glass. Glass for the table, glass for the windows and even glass for some ornaments, but glass for a wider range of uses around the home or office, surely not!

The marked increase in interest of glass around the home seems to have started back in 1949, when the 'The Glass House' or 'Johnson house' was built in Connecticut, USA. It was designed by Philip Johnson as his own weekend residence and was made predominantly of toughened glass. It has been said that in a house of glass, the views of the landscape are its wallpaper.

From glass kitchen splashbacks to bespoke mirrors

We all want our homes to have a unique appearance, because nobody wants their living space to be exactly the same as their friends and neighbours. Sadly this is easier said than done! Think about it, the majority of your friends and neighbours will buy their furniture from the local furniture store and the wallpaper, lamps and flooring are likely to be sourced from the same local DIY shop that you use. This is not to say they will choose exactly the same decor as you, but the chances of it happening are pretty good. So if you want something really different, think glass!

How toughened glass is made for our kitchen and bathroom splashbacks

Toughened glass, as its name would suggest, is glass material that has been made much tougher than ordinary glass. Toughened glass are much stronger varieties and are used in various constructions, these can be residential or commercial constructions. The actual strength of toughened glass is up to five times more than that of annealed glass, (see below for an explanation of the annealing process). Toughened glass is not only used for kitchen and bathroom splashbacks, it is also used to manufacture lots of glassware and these products are comparatively safer and offer far more durability.

Some people mistakenly believe that toughened glass is unbreakable, it may be very tough, but it can still be broken. Remember though, if products made of toughened glass are handled in the correct way, there is no reason why they shouldn't last for a lifetime.
