Why It’s Time To Consider Splashbacks For Your Kitchen

When it comes to designing a new kitchen or remodelling an existing room, one of the biggest decisions any designer/renovator faces is tiles or splashbacks. It may seem like an insignificantly small choice, but it has far reaching effects on the look, feel and practicality of your room. To us there is no contest, while tiles may be considered a ‘traditional’ option, we feel modern splashbacks are superior in every way.

Hygiene

Everybody wants a clean kitchen. Not only does a sparkling countertop or a spotless hob make the heart of the house a joy to spend time in, but it is a key component in maintaining your family’s health. Preparing food in safe and hygienic conditions is one way we each show that we care for those around us.

Traditional tiles can be a pain to maintain, with each grouting dip providing a perfect home for bacteria to breed and fester. Cleaning porous surfaces such as tile and grout are also notoriously time-consuming, and grout especially has a way of looking ‘off’ the moment your back is turned.

Solid tempered-glass splashbacks however provide no such sanctuary for grime to hide, as a bonus they are also non-porous, so they will not absorb any water or grease produced during cooking. All it takes is a quick wipe with disinfectant to ensure a sparking finish and a five-star hygiene rating.

Customisability

As the centre of family life, the kitchen represents more than just a room.

With glass splashbacks you have a myriad of options to personalise your kitchen. A limitless choice of colours and hues let you tailor your kitchen to reflect your style and creativity. If you are looking for a showstopper or a talking piece you can even choose an image or design for behind the glass. Trendy or sophisticated, geometric patterns or quirky cartoons, you could even stand out from the crowd and showcase your favourite holiday snaps! For smaller kitchens or those with less natural light, why not put your splashbacks to use?

Mirrored glass splashbacks create the illusion of space, making your room feel larger and more open, whilst reflecting and maximising any natural light, saving your electric bills, and bringing some mood-boosting sunshine into your home.

Practicality

Kitchens are busy places, full of activity. Over time tiles become cracked, grouting becomes dull, and everyday cooking activities (and the associated inevitable accidents) can create water spills, sauce stains, grease, heat, and steam. With more old-fashioned materials this wear, and tear can build up over the years, reducing the value of the room and making it much less pleasurable to spend time in.

Modern glass splashbacks are not only hygienic but are also heat-resistant, perfect for behind stovetops. Each of our bespoke splashbacks are manufactured from toughened glass, which is shatterproof and guarantees it will be robust and durable for many years to come. Our splashbacks will not let you down.

Furthermore, as each of our pieces are made to your specifications, you can be assured a perfect fit, no matter the shape of your space. Our team of experienced installers will visit you, take detailed measurements and listen to you so you can have the kitchen of your dreams.
