When it comes down to fitting a splashback , also referred to as backsplash, in your kitchen, there is no shortage of materials to choose from, as they range from stainless steel, to marble, to ceramics, glass and anything in between. However, if you are serious about ending up with a desirable finish then you should seriously consider using glass.
Backsplashes made of glass are available in different sizes and designs and we are going to show you just some the designs that you can use in your home.
If it is a question of maintaining creativity all the while maintaining functionality and aesthetics when it comes to splashbacks, glass is the best choice. It has become more popular nowadays because of its wide array of customisability and ability to accentuate a room’s ambience giving it a pleasant appearance. Modern kitchens are becoming popularly fitted with coloured glass splashbacks. They vary in type and can also be back-lit to provide a rather dramatic visual focal point in a dimly lit kitchen. Usually, coloured glass splashbacks come in single pieces with the variation in design and colour allowing for multiple pieces to be used.
There are also mirrored glass splashbacks, which are commonly used to show depth in small areas. They not only show depth but also create an illusion of a larger space and an increase in floor space wherever they are installed. Mirrored backsplashes are also easy to install and are a little bit costlier than the plain, transparent glasses. Like all glass backsplashes they will not harbour dirt and germs, but still need to be cleaned regularly as they can be quite unattractive if left unattended.
Glass-Framed Image Splashback
Glass-framed image splashbacks are fast becoming a versatile design concept that you should definitely consider when choosing splashbacks. Their main advantage stems from their flexibility in that you can mount whatever image or mural you like on your wall and it will be protected by a plate of glass. All you need to do is to select a style or concept and contract a professional to do the installation. They do present difficulty in their installation so it is wise to have a professional install it for you.
These are the next generation of splashbacks. These have a rippled look, adding a modern touch and texture that makes them an excellent addition to any kitchen. With designs resembling water waves they exude a relaxing and calming effect in any atmosphere wherever they are incorporated. Slumped backsplashes are more high-end and are thus more expensive than the typical glass splashbacks, yet the appearance and design they elicit is worth every penny.
If you are seriously looking to redesign your kitchen, you should definitely consider using glass backsplash as your primary concept. Glass gives you the freedom to be creative, so don’t hold back when you want to unleash you creativity on your kitchen space.
