The benefits to having a glass splashback installed in your home are many and varied! The first thing a splashback does is bring style to your home in a way that other materials fail to do. Glass splashbacks are modern, stylish and clean, but there is more to a glass splashback than just an easy to clean backdrop to your cooking area.
The glass splashback is an addition to the home that can change the dynamics of more than just a kitchen. People often have glass splashbacks fitted in many other parts of the house too. Better still; why not add that little extra wow effect by having the glass splashback made into a mirrored splashback?
At Splashbacks of Distinction, we manufacture, supply and fit a wide range of toughened glass products, so whatever design idea you have, we can help you to achieve the look you've always wanted for your home and garden. Why not check out our range of glass balustrades, shelves mirrors and shower screens and cubicles? We offer a wide range of glass and mirrored splashbacks in a range of textures and styles, with prices to suit any budget.
Mirrored Kitchen splashbacks and panels situated behind your hob, cooker, sink and work surfaces are a really stylish and easy to clean addition to any modern home.
There are so many personal and practical advantages to having a mirrored splashback in your kitchen. A mirrored splashback is a fantastically attractive method of protecting your walls from food splashes, and they are incredibly easy to clean and the maintenance is minimal. A mirrored glass kitchen splashback will add masses of style and personalisation to your kitchen design. Mirrored splashbacks will also mean an end to re-grouting yellowed and grimy ceramic tiles or replacing damaged tiles, saving you time and money. In short, a mirrored glass kitchen splashback looks really impressive and is bound to be a major talking point amongst visitors to your home.
When it comes to giving your bathroom or toilet a real meaningful makeover, tiles has always been the first consideration. Some people have branched out into various stone tiles and mosaics, but one is always dealing with the number one enemy of hygiene, grout! Grout is rough and porous, unless sealed and is very prone to cracking, yellowing and generally looking grim after a while. It is always a major hassle to replace too. Of course, ceramic tiles are waterproof, durable and come in a wide range of textures and patterns. Sadly, tiles also come with a lot of maintenance and involve a lengthy and often costly installation process.
Toughened glass splashbacks on the other hand have none of these drawbacks, and if you opt for a mirrored splashback, you have all the benefits of glass, but with a sparkling mirror finish that will bring your smallest room bang up to date
Toughened glass mirrored splashbacks are not only quicker and more cost-effective to install; they also give you a superb finish every time.
When one thinks of a glass splashback, one usually thinks of the kitchen, but as we have already seen, they lend themselves to so many other parts of the house.
A mirrored splashback or panel installed at the head of the bed, behind a dressing table or on the walls of a walk in wardrobe or dressing area add a touch of elegance along with the practicality of a mirror. So instead of having a wall mounted mirror or those dreadful glass mirrored tiles that should have been left in the 1970's where they belong, you can transform your bedroom and dressing area with a quality mirrored splashback.
A mirrored glass splashback will look amazing as a back drop to your television or drinks area. After all, bars and pubs have mirrored areas behind the bottles that are lined up, so why not replicate this classic, yet modern and stylish look in your own living space?
Many of us have a spare room or two, particularly once the kids have flown the nest. What do we do with these rooms though? We may keep them as they were, just in case the kids return, or we may retain them for the occasions when the grandchildren come for a sleepover. However, more and more people are making good use of the vacated rooms and converting them into office spaces, home gymnasiums or even mini dance studios if that's what you're into.
A mirrored splashback will open up any room, making it appear far larger than it is. Mirrors make the most of natural and artificial light, offering a sense of well being and space. Let's face it; gymnasiums always have mirrored walls so those working out can check their progress and technique, so why shouldn't you have the same wall covering in your home gym? A glass mirrored splashback can and will transform that spare room, regardless of what use you put it to.
When you enter a house, the entrance hall is often quite small. The more modern houses are actually pretty tiny as the property developers clamour to build more and more houses on the available land. Like any other space, the entrance hall will be made to look brighter and much bigger with the addition of a glass mirrored splashback.
We've probably all seen those Victorian arched mirrors that are designed for mounting on walls and fences around the garden, and they can look really nice in the right setting, but what if you want something a little bigger or modern? A mirrored glass splashback mounted in your garden can really open up a world of design possibilities for you. Your ponds and other water features will take on a whole new dimension, while your borders and specimen shrubs and flowers will take on a more expansive look.
With thoughtful lighting options, a mirrored splashback in the garden will turn your outdoor space into a wonderland, no matter what the season. Imagine doubling the joy of all the summer foliage, maximising the glorious reds, yellows and browns of autumn and imagine having the beauty of a snowy landscape reflected in an outdoor mirrored splashback panel.
Because we custom build all our splashbacks to your own specification, we can ensure that your mirrored splashback will be as big as you need it to be. They are toughened too, so they are safe to use outdoors.
The garden has ceased to be somewhere we store the wheelie bins and hang out the washing. More and more people are making better use of their outdoor spaces these days. They are making separate areas such as decks, terraces and patio areas. They are incorporating ponds and water features that are far more adventurous than they were a few years ago and a glass mirrored splashback panel only makes these areas look better.
It has been argued that the isolation and the inability to venture out during the long covid lockdowns have made people appreciate their garden spaces more, after all, that was the nearest many of us got to going out for the best part of a year. Research has shown that getting out in the fresh air is extremely beneficial to the mental and physical health of an individual, so it is little wonder that our garden spaces have become so precious to us.
Smaller gardens benefit even more from a mirrored splashback panel made from toughened glass. They can be made to look double the size and with extra mirrored splashback panels, they can appear to go on almost into infinity. It was this feeling of space and being outside that kept so many of us sane during the tedium of the government enforced lockdown.
A mirrored splashback is a stylish and very functional addition to any home. No matter where you have your mirrored splashback fitted, the kitchen, bathroom, toilet, living room, studio or garden, a mirrored splashback will add some serious appeal to your property.
A glass mirrored splashback will offer a range of benefits that go way beyond protecting your kitchen walls from splashes and spills. So, let's look at just some of the advantages of a mirrored splashback in detail, so you can make an informed decision as to whether it's the right choice for your home.
One of the main advantages of a mirrored splashback is that it reflects light, creating a sense of space and lightness wherever it is fitted. This is particularly beneficial if you have a small house, with small rooms that feels restrictive, cramped or dark. Mirrored splashbacks are a superb way of reflecting natural and artificial light; a mirrored splashback can make the rooms of your home feel brighter, cheerier and more open, creating a welcoming atmosphere that lifts the mood.
Much like the health benefits that were detailed above about the 'outdoor effect' during the covid restrictions, brightening up your interior with a mirrored splashback has a similar effect on the mood and ones overall sense of well being.
As more and more of us have been forced to, or have chosen to work from home during and since the pandemic, making the most of our home space is even more important. Having sparkling toughened glass mirrored splashbacks fitted in the home office for example, can offer a genuine boost to your sense of wellness. A reflected abundance of light, whether natural or artificial will help to lift ones mood and as the saying goes, 'a healthy mind equals a healthy body'.
Our mirrored splashbacks are made of the very finest toughened glass, which is incredibly durable and easy to clean. At Splashbacks of Distinction we manufacture all our own glass products, and we test them in our own homes wherever possible, or put them through rigorous test at our manufacturing plant. This ensures our customers will only receive the very finest quality toughened glass products that are available on the market today.
When it comes to cleaning our mirrored splashbacks, all you need is a damp cloth and some glass cleaner to wipe away any splatters or spills. Unlike other materials such as tiles or stainless steel, a mirrored splashback has no grout lines or seams that can collect dirt and grime. This makes it a hygienic and low-maintenance option for any kitchen. Also, our mirrored splashbacks are incredibly durable and scratch resistant, unlike steel splashbacks that look like a used skating rink after a relatively short period of time.
A mirrored splashback will inevitably add style and sophistication to your home, as well as offering a practical and functional method of protecting your walls from splashes, spills, knocks and everyday grime. A mirrored splashback reflects light, creating a sense of extra space and elegance. A mirrored splashback is also an incredibly versatile addition to the home that can complement a wide range of decor ideas, from modern and minimalist to classic and traditional. So, whether you're looking to create an up to date, contemporary kitchen or a more modern and luxurious space, a mirrored splashback can help you achieve your design goals.
If you have small rooms in your home, or maybe a tiny back garden or patio, a mirrored splashback can make it look far bigger and more spacious. By reflecting light and creating a sense of depth, a mirrored splashback can trick the eye into thinking that your chosen space is larger than it actually is. This is especially useful when a mirrored splashback is added to a kitchen. Homes that have large kitchens appear to sell quicker and for more than those without, and even the smaller kitchen will benefit from the space enhancing effect of a mirrored splashback. The simple fact is that a spacious or seemingly spacious kitchen is a major selling point for a good deal of buyers.
Mirrored splashbacks are available in a wide range of colours, from classic silver to more contemporary shades such as bronze or black, so don't be fooled into thinking you will be buying into just an oversized mirror. A mirrored splashback can also have veins added to replicate a more rustic look that prevents it looking as clinical as a plain mirror finish could. You are able to choose a mirrored splashback that will truly complement your existing colour scheme and one that complements the decor no matter what room it is fitted in. A mirrored splashback can also be custom-made to fit your exact requirements, so you can be sure that it will fit seamlessly into any part of your home.
A mirrored splashback can create a focal point in whatever part of your house you choose to have it fitted. The mirrored splashback will draw the eye and add a whole new dimension to your chosen room.
Adding a mirrored splashback to a display area is a particular favourite. The mirrored splashback will show off your ornaments in an entirely different way, reflecting light and showing off angles that you may have never realised existed before. Some people even opt for toughened glass shelving in combination with a mirrored splashback, and this really does ad a whole new dynamic to any display or collection of ornaments or artefacts.
A mirrored splashback can add a considerable amount of extra value to your home. We have already discussed how a modern and stylish kitchen is a major selling point for many buyers, and a mirrored splashback can help you achieve this. By adding a touch of luxury to your kitchen and other areas of the house, you can increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
In short, a mirrored splashback is a stylish, practical and cost effective addition to any home. Mirrored splashbacks offer a wide range of benefits, from reflecting light and creating a sense of extra space to being easy to clean and maintain.
A mirrored splashback will also add style to your home; it will complement any colour scheme, create a new and interesting focal point, and add genuine value to your home overall.
So, if you're looking to upgrade your kitchen, bathroom, living space or even outdoor areas, a mirrored splashback is definitely worth considering.
