And, this week we’re concentrating on the humble glass splashback, and whether this popular home application is really worth it!

Why consider glass splashbacks?

Splashbacks are a vital part of most kitchens and bathrooms and work to protect the walls from splashes, spills and general day-to-day grime. So, deciding whether to have a splashback or not is a bit of a no brainer. The difficulty comes with trying to select the right type of splashback for your home, and glass splashbacks have been a firm favourite for many years now.

Easy to wipe down and available in a range of styles, colours and patterns – glass has rivalled tiled splashbacks for the top spot, particularly in modern homes where glass is often deemed a more versatile choice. And adaptability isn’t the only benefit of opting for a glass splashback, here are some more:

  • Low-cost
  • Attractive
  • Easy to clean
  • Easy to install
  • Customisable

So, it’s easy to see why so many people want to know all they can about glass splashbacks before considering other options.

Glass splashbacks are great for busy households!

Nothing says low maintenance quite like glass. Although it may show up finger marks easily, it is just as easy to quickly wipe down at the end of a cooking session or on your way out the door!

If you have a large family, are an avid cook or just don’t want to spend large amounts of time cleaning up, glass splashbacks are an excellent choice. All you need to clean your glass splashbacks are some lint-free cloths and a simple, non-abrasive kitchen or glass cleaner, and you’re good to go!

Customisable glass splashbacks for all types of décor

Whether you have contemporary or traditional taste in interior design, glass splashbacks are versatile enough to fit in with the rest of your home with ease. We offer decorative splashback glass cut to size, as well as a host of colour variations to ensure that your kitchen or bathroom looks the part. You can even choose the type of glass you’d like to use, including toughened glassfire glass or low-e glass.

Are glass splashbacks expensive?

Okay, so time for arguably the most important question of all; are glass splashbacks affordable? If you’re watching the pennies, we can understand why this may be of great importance, and the good news is – yes – glass splashbacks are incredibly affordable!

Compared to other popular splashback materials, like tile, glass is incredibly well priced and still offers longevity, making it the perfect investment, especially if you’re looking to upgrade your home on a budget.
