Kitchen splashbacks are important kitchen features that you need to be very careful when buying. You want something that is highly functional while at the same time able to redefine your kitchen space. With many splashback options to choose from, making a choice can be quite challenging. However, among the many choices, you may want to consider glass splashbacks for the following reasons.

Ease of Cleaning

One of the major advantages of glass splashbacks is that they can be cleaned easily. The sleekness and flat surface of the glass splashbacks allow for easy cleaning of stains and spills. In addition, glass splashbacks are non-porous and non-absorbent, which means you don't have to worry about spills staining or damaging your glass splashback surface.

Seamed splashbacks, such as tiled splashbacks, can allow foods and spills to get into the grout lines, making cleaning to be more difficult. Glass splashbacks are seamless. The absence of the seams also makes glass splashbacks more hygienic. This is because materials with seams allow for the accumulation of filth that may require thorough cleaning to bring the splashbacks back to their safe levels of hygiene.

Wall Protection

One of the major functions of a kitchen splashback is to protect your kitchen walls from possible damage by stains and splashes. The absence of grouting seams on glass splashbacks allows for better protection of your walls from the effects of splashes.

Ability to Add Special or Customised Features to the Splashbacks

Glass splashbacks give you capacity to add special features such as background photos or LED lighting. These special features can help transform your kitchen into an excellent and inviting cooking space.

Light-Reflective Ability

Unlike other splashback types, glass splashbacks come with light-reflective properties because of their shiny surfaces. This allows for extra illumination of your kitchen without the need for additional lighting.

Versatility in Colours

Glass splashbacks are available in a wide range of colours, giving you more control of the design of your kitchen. You can choose a single colour or a unique combination of colours depending on what works best for your kitchen.

Heat Resistance and Durability

When cooking, especially for long hours, you don't have to be worried about the heat damaging your glass splashbacks. The heat won't affect the colour or shape of your glass splashbacks, giving you a worry-free cooking. In addition, glass splashbacks made from toughened glass is highly resistant to impact.

About Me
Getting some more privacy

I love how much light our house gets, but the people who were living before us must have been very open with the whole street knowing what they were up to at all times. I've never lived somewhere where so many rooms have really large windows - including the bathroom! We are slowly getting the glass replaced from plain glass panes into frosted and patterned glass so that we keep getting all of that lovely light in but so that the whole neighbourhood doesn't get to see us. This blog has before and after picture of the rooms in our house as we do the glass replacements.
