Kitchen splashback with mirror line

There's no doubt that glass kitchen or bathroom splashbacks add that touch of opulence, beauty and functionality that other wall coverings cannot. They also offer unparalleled hygiene. Other wall coverings, particularly in cooking areas, quickly become covered in grime Grout lines yellow over time, they may also crack and if you've ever tried to clean them back to their original white colour, you'll know how difficult this can be. In fact, the only way to achieve a perfect white again is to re-grout the entire area and who has the time or energy for that?

The answer is mirror lined glass splashbacks

Having a mirror line running through your glass splashback adds a special feature that will make your splashback stand out from the rest. You may decide to have a single mirror line, and this minimalist approach works incredibly well. The single horizontal mirror line will break up any potential for monotony and can be added at any level of the glass splashback.

It really doesn't matter what colour of texture of glass splashback you have in your Newmarket property, the mirror line will add interest and the light, whether natural or artificial will dance brilliantly in the reflective properties of the mirrored line.

As previously stated, the customer can choose the position and quantity of the lines and also the thickness so the mirror line will not be broken by electrical socket locations. Having different angles, thicknesses or numbers of mirror lines set within your glass splashback will offer a truly bespoke edge to your splashback, something that you will never tire of.

Where is Newmarket?

Newmarket is a historic and beautiful market town in West Suffolk. Newmarket is located fourteen miles west of Bury St Edmunds and the same distance northeast of Cambridge. Newmarket is a major local business cluster, with annual investment rivalling that of the Cambridge Science Park, the other major cluster in the region.

Horse racing and Newmarket

Newmarket has long been associated with horses and horse racing, with the National Stud having a strong presence in the town. Newmarket is considered the birthplace and global centre of thoroughbred horse racing. It is the largest racehorse training centre in Britain, the largest racehorse breeding centre in the country, home to most major British horseracing institutions, and a key global centre for horse health. Two Classic races, and an additional three British Champions Series races are held at Newmarket every year. The town has had close royal connections since the time of James I, who built a palace there, and was also a base for Charles I, Charles II, and most monarchs since. Queen Elizabeth II visited Newmarket often to see her horses in training.

Newmarket has over fifty horse training stables, two large racetracks, the Rowley Mile and the July Course, and one of the most extensive and prestigious horse training grounds in the world. The town is home to over 3,500 racehorses, and it is estimated that one in every three local jobs is related to horse racing. Palace House, the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art, the National Horseracing Museum, Tattersall's racehorse auctioneers, and two of the world's foremost equine hospitals for horse health, are in the town, which is surrounded by over sixty horse breeding studs. On account of its leading position in the multibillion-pound horse racing and breeding industry, it is also a major export centre.

History of Newmarket

Newmarket's name was first recorded in Latin as novo mercato in 1219. The Novum Forum c.1200 recorded in many place-name dictionaries such as that by Mills, is an error; this was actually the surname de novo foro of a man from Yorkshire who had no connection to Newmarket. In 1223, Richard de Argentein was granted licence to hold an annual fair in Newmarket.

James I first visited Newmarket in February 1605, describing it as a "poor little village". From 1606 to 1610, he built the Newmarket Palace, an estate covering one acre of land from the High Street to All Saints' churchyard, and thus established the town as a royal resort. This also made Newmarket a horseracing town. The first palace building suffered from subsidence and sank on one side when King James was in residence in March 1613. Simon Basil, and later, Inigo Jones, were commissioned to build new lodgings for the King and the Prince of Wales. Jones's design had three storeys and was Italianate in style.

King Charles I and Newmarket

In 1642, Charles I met a parliamentary deputation in Newmarket that demanded his surrender of the armed forces. "By God not for an hour", Charles replied, "You have asked such of me that was never asked of a King!" It has been argued that this episode effectively started the English Civil War. Newmarket remained Royalist throughout the war. In early June 1647, Charles was captured at Holdenby House in Northamptonshire and brought to Newmarket as a prisoner. He was placed under house arrest in the palace while the whole of Cromwell's New Model Army kept guard over the town. A survey in 1649 showed that the palace was in disrepair. The following year, the palace was sold to John Okey, who demolished most of the buildings.

Between 1666 and 1685, Charles II often visited Newmarket. In 1668, he commissioned William Samwell to build a new palace on the High Street. However, in 1670, John Evelyn said that the palace was "meane enough, and hardly capable for a hunting house, let alone a royal palace!" In October 1677 and October 1695, William of Orange visited Newmarket.

At the start of the 19th century, the palace was largely torn down, but a part survives and is now named Palace House. During the 1800s, Newmarket south of the High Street spread into the parishes of Woodditton and Cheveley in Cambridgeshire. In 1894, the county border was moved to accommodate this, and has been further altered since.

On 15 December 1977, an F111-F jet fighter crashed at Exning near Newmarket, owing to hydraulic failure.

Aired on the 12th February 2012, the British television series Time Team excavated on the site of Charles II's palace at Newmarket, and found foundations of racehorse stables, proving the long tradition of horse racing in Newmarket.

Kitchen Splashback in Hitchin by Artist Johanna Wood

We templated, supplied and installed the glass, and then the artist Johanna Wood painted the splashbacks. The result looks amazing with intricate details which create a bespoke design.


LED Backlit Splashback, Royston

With a artistic design printed on the back of the glass very lightly, we are able to achieve the design without a light backing but also achieve illumination in various lights through the LED strips installed in a track behind the glass. With a colour wheel on the remote control for the LED Lights, the customer now has an unlimited choice of colours and brightness for his splashback.

Wine Room, Roydon

Working alongside Brandt Kitchens we installed the glass for this beautiful Wine Room in Roydon. By fitting the very large 10mm Glass Panels on the outside, we painted black borders around the glass to hide any hardware and give a nice edge to the glass. The glass works were then finished with matching Black Hinges and a Black Handle.

Frameless Balustrades and Juliet Balcony, Berkhamsted

We measured and installed these 17.5mm Laminated Float Glass Juliet Balcony and Balustrades early 2019. Sitting on chrome stand offs, the clean and modern look makes a massive difference to the rear of the property. Toughened and Laminated, these glass panels will be sure to stand the test of time.

With the balcony weighing in at 157kg and measuring over 3.5m wide, it was no easy task but the excellent fitting team here made it all possible.

Full Shower Enclosure, Surrey

We installed this Glass Shower Enclosure towards the end of 2018. With the 10mm glass sitting in the grooves of the marble shower pan, there is a real sleek and seamless look to the enclosure.
