Splashbacks are meant to protect the wall around the kitchen’s cooking area. Apart from providing the wall with protection from heat and oil splashes, it can give your kitchen a nice finish.
Splashbacks are commonly made of tiles. Glass, however, is now gaining popularity as the material of choice for splashbacks in many households, especially those with contemporary-styled kitchens. Here are the following reasons why many homeowners now prefer glass splashbacks:
- Visually appealing. Glass splashbacks reflect light, giving them a wonderful shine. Thanks to this reflective nature of glass, you can give the room the illusion of space, something that tiles cannot achieve. Glass splashbacks can light up the kitchen, especially if there is minimal natural light that comes in during the day.
- Easy to clean. Since they are made of glass, these splashbacks are easy to clean. You just have to wipe it down with soft, clean cloth. And unlike tiles, glass does not collect mould and grime. Its surface can even ward off dirt and muck.
- Highly durable. Toughened glass is the type of glass used to make splashbacks. This means you do not have to worry about cracks, scratches, and breakage. Glass splashbacks are so tough that they can withstand the usual bangs, thumps, and thuds that happen in a busy kitchen. On top of that, glass splashbacks are also heat resistant.
- Available in different styles and colours. As glass splashbacks come in a wide range of colours, you can choose a shade that is the same as your kitchen’s colour theme. Additionally, the glass material can be moulded and cut to form any shape to suit the overall decorations of your kitchen. You may customise them according to the room’s layout.
Glass splashbacks can give your kitchen a modern, sophisticated look. You may also use them to improve the appearance of your outdoor kitchen, home bar, or just to create an eye-catching feature wall.
