Kitchen Splashbacks Explained

Simply glass splashbacks are panels of glass that are usually used in the kitchen (as well as bathroom and other suitable areas) to offer outstanding protection from food or liquid spills on the surfaces behind cookers, sinks and work surfaces. Our splashbacks are made from glass we tend to install them on surfaces that would have traditionally been tiled. Kitchen glass splashbacks are often both functional and ornamental, they are available in a range of finishes, colours and designs.

Transform the look of your kitchen with our amazing glass splashbacks they are a modern stylish alternative to tiles and grout. If you are planning a new kitchen or looking to upgrade your current kitchen, it’s worth considering splashbacks due to their beauty and practicality. Splash backs are a very sensible choice as they are tough, hygienic, durable, heat-resistant as well as easy to clean. The beauty of glass splashbacks go beyond skin deep, as the glass allows an array of refractions and reflections to bring the whole of the work surface and worktop alive with light and colour. Some people have said that glass splashbacks are a trend, but that’s not the reason why so many people are choosing them: Ease of cleaning, light reflection and the time saved in maintenance are only some of the reasons. No more messing around with dirty grout lines and removing that curry spill from the white grout…

The wall behind a sink or cooker hob is particularly prone to spitting and splashing, this area is particularly worth considering for a splashback, although many people choose to have a uniform ‘fully fitted’ look throughout their kitchen and experience shows us that people who don’t go for the uniform look wish they had when scrubbing tiles and grout.

Water ingress can damage the structure of your house, and splashing water is inevitable in kitchens and bathrooms, the grout in tiles tends wear out and allow water to penetrate into the wall. When using tiles there is always a high probability that there will be minute gaps where water will escape to and cause serious damage, especially to any wooden support structures of your house. Ultimately, leaking water over time causes rot which can be very expensive in time, money and hassle to put right. Leaking water can also encourages mould and dangerous spores which have been shown to have a detrimental effect on the health of household occupants.

Simply glass splashbacks are extremely resistant to staining, with traditional tiles the surface can be wiped clean, but often the grout between tiles will stain and wear over time. Colourful foods can discolour the grout to an extent that it’s not possible to bring back that ‘as new’ look without messy re-grouting of tiles. A splashback has a large ‘wipe clean’ surface that can be restored to a pristine finish with very limited effort required.

If you are looking to get a new kitchen fitted or want to upgrade the your existing kitchen, it’s well worth considering our splashbacks. They offer a very fashionable contemporary look available in a wide variety of finishes and colours.
