3 Reasons Why You Should Choose Glass Splashbacks For Your New Kitchen
11 October 2022
Kitchens can get messy – and so they should when cooking up a storm!
With all that mixing, baking, stirring and frying going on, the last thing you want is for your kitchen walls to end up damaged or discoloured. That’s where the faithful glass splashback comes in.
Not only does a glass splashback offer protection against spills and splatters, but it can also add a touch of style to your kitchen area as well.
If you’re looking at renovating your current kitchen or currently building a new one, incorporating glass splashbacks is a great idea to keep the area clean and make it aesthetically pleasing.
What is a splashback?
A splashback is a panel placed on the wall either above the sink, stovetop, or other countertop space in the kitchen, protecting the wall from moisture, oil, food splatters, grease, and any other mess when you’re washing or preparing food. Many different materials can be used as splashbacks, but the most common are tiles, steel, stone, and glass.
How does a splashback affect kitchen designs?
Splashbacks end up covering a lot of surface area in your kitchen so it’s important to consider what type and style your splashback will be when planning your kitchen.
A splashback can also serve as a feature wall and even help revive an outdated kitchen, especially if you have an open-plan layout.
3 benefits of using glass splashbacks in your kitchen
Stylish, modern, easy to clean and infinitely customisable, glass is the most ideal splashback material for the central (and often most used) part of your home.
Here are a few benefits of having a glass splashback as part of your kitchen:
Easy to maintain & keep clean
Unlike tile splashbacks that have hard-to-clean gaps which you need to scrub, glass splashbacks are much easier to maintain and keep clean.
With simple glass-cleaning products, or even just warm water and soap, your food-stained and oily glass splashbacks can look good as new in a few wipes.
Glass splashbacks, made of toughened safety glass. are naturally more durable compared to stainless steel counterparts.
Versatile and customisable
With glass splashbacks, you can choose from using colour, patterns and even photo effects to match perfectly to your kitchen décor.
With O'Brien Glass® Splashfast Colour System, you can choose from a wide range of decorative glass colours to match your interior with optimal colour clarity using low-iron toughened glass. Metallic or flat colour options are available.
Remember, glass splashbacks are not limited to kitchens; they can suit all manner of rooms around your home. Pantries, laundries, and bathrooms are also perfect for this feature too!
