If you are building a new home or renovating an old kitchen and are considering using marble, granite, or a high quality tile for the splash back, more than likely the cost of a glass splash back will be very similar to your other options.
Some other advantages that this material has over most other products is that it can be made in such a way that it is very shinny, has special design features built right into the glass, or you can create a 3D effect by placing items like LED lights behind it.
Unlike most other splash back materials, a glass splash back is remarkably easy to cut which ensures a very tight fit. If you do decide to use this material you will need to hire a professional that has a tremendous amount of experience working with and installing it. In most instances, a normal kitchen remodeling company will not possess the skill or knowledge to perform the tasks required to properly install a glass splash back.
If you are sick and tired of your old kitchen and want a new and exciting one that will make all of your friends and family envious, then you should strongly consider installing a custom made glass splash back when you renovate your kitchen.
