Design your own splashback by uploading your own image or photo. It can be a personal photograph, image you have or any of the billions of images available on Shutterstock and other stock photo websites.
In order for us to be able to use your file to create a high resolution personalised photo splashback for you, the image itself needs to be as big as the splashback you require. Patterned splashbacks can be created by using vector files also which allow us to scale the pattern size to fit any size of splashback without loss of resolution.
**Important- Acrylic Splashbacks should not be used behind a hob or cooker- use glass** Acrylic is perfectly suitable behind sinks, in showers, bathrooms and as wall aer etc. but do not use behind a hob.
What does that mean?
Well, every photo or image file will be a certain resolution. Resolution is basically the number of pixels wide X the number of pixels high, when you multiply these two figures together you get the image resolution for your photo splashback.
How do I know if my image is sufficient resolution?
To make it simple, we recomment an image file at least 4MB for a standard size cooker splashback of 600mm x 750mm, for 900 x 750mm we recommend one 6MB. The larger the splashback, the larger the file size we require.
How will my image fit on the glass?
The majority of images are landscape, in other words they are wider than they are high. The majority of glass splashbacks are portrait, so they are higher than they are wide...so during the production process our graphic designer will use their best judgement to determine how best to crop your image for you. Don't worry, we will issue you an image proof to check before we print it.
How To Order a Glass Splashback
Width and Height are in mm (millimetres) not cm (see below for how to take the right measurements). For more complicated shapes and sizes of kitchen glass splashbacks see the Tutorials section of the website. Sizes can be bespoke which can take a little lober but we offer over 20 stock sizes to fit the majority of kitchens.
Fixing Method- You can stick or screw to the kitchen wall, we recommend sticking as it's neater, you cannot accidentally drill through a wire or pipe and you should seal the edges anyway using neutral cure silicone.
Easy Clean/Non Stick Coating - a nano coating is applied to the glass that bonds to the surface filling all the microscopic pores in the glass, which is particularly useful behind kitchen hobs and in showers. This coating essentially means water and condensation run off the glass minimising salt deposits and grease will sit on the coating making it much easier to clean off.

Foil Backing - All of our splashbacks can be foil backed to help prevent against moisture and wall salt (from new plastered walls). It is not usually necessary but an optional backing for peace of mind to protect your splashback from such issues arising during the lifespan of the glass.
Glass Finish - Our coloured glass splashbacks have a gloss finish.
Socket Cut Outs - using a CNC, we can add your cut outs for plug sockets prior to the glass being toughened, once toughened our glass splashbacks cannot be cut.
Cut to fit a cooker hood - we have a number of kitchen cooker hood profiles on file (for cooker hoods that are not just flat at the bottom). If your shaped hood is one of these shapes we can shape the splashback to fit arond the shaped bottom. When measuring for a shaped cooker hood measure from the middle of the hood at the bottom of the hood to the kitchen worktop and subtract 4mm.
In a kitchen your wall covering can be complimentary to your doors and worktops or they can be a defining feature. Coloured glass splashbacks tend to be more often than not the former. Find the right colour and you can have a fully washable wall that will look as good in 10 years as it does on day of installation.
How To Measure for a Glass Splashback
You are basically ordering something to be a fraction smaller than the space it is to fit in (so it fits!).
For a simple rectangle or square glass splashback, measure the height in mm (millimetres)- subtract 2mm. Measure the width in mm, subtract 4mm.
How To Fit a Glass Splashback
For full instructions you can visit our Tutorials Section but you are simply adding our silicone adhesive (neutral cure) to the back, sticking to the wall and sealing the edges. It's an incredibly simple ten minute DIY task. Screw fitted splashbacks require a bit more effort - marking the hole locations, drilling the holes, fitting some rawl plugs and screwing the splashback to the wall...then sealing with neutral cure silicone afterwards.
With our help, the majority of our customers do of course measure and fit themselves (or engage a local tradesman or kitchen fitter). Tutorials to help with that are on the below pages.

Order times and delivery
Lead times on bespoke sizes vary throughout the year but you should see our latest estimates in the quote tool. Our coloured glass splashbacks are available in over 30 stock sizes for fast shipping within the UK, usually 7-10 days. No stock sizes are currently available with drill holes so the lead times for splashbacks with drill holes are the same as bespoke.
