There are numerous options available for revamping a kitchen on a budget; a fresh coat of paint, a change of cabinet doors, new hardware and fixtures, all ideas worth considering. But when it comes to the kind of quick and easy enhancements that deliver maximum impact, there is nothing like a custom kitchen splashback.
Installing a splashback brings improvements to both presentation and practicality to any type of kitchen. It is the kind of project that can be completed within just a few hours with no outside help necessary; it is the kind of low-cost kitchen makeover with the potential to improve your living quarters and house market value.
Why Choose a Glass Splashback?
Shopping for a kitchen Splashback means negotiating the various different types of materials available, all of which have unique points of appeal, but none are quite as advantageous as the toughened glass splashback.
While a premium glass splashback will typically cost more than an acrylic splashback, it is a small price to pay for what you take home in return. Here are just a few of the main advantages of choosing a glass splashback for your kitchen:
Colour and finish options – there is a limitless range of colours and designs to choose from, making it easy to find the perfect splashback for your kitchen. There are fantastic options available to suit all types of classical and contemporary interiors, ranging from the understated and elegant to the bold, bright and beautiful.
Minimal maintenance – once a glass splashback has been installed, there are practically no subsequent maintenance requirements to worry about. With a sealed and seamless glass splashback, all it takes is a wipe with a damp cloth to keep it clean and ensure showroom condition.
Hygienic – the fact that there is nowhere for germs and bacteria to hide means that a kitchen splashback can also be extremely hygienic. The surface is non-porous and offers fantastic resistance to the build-up of grease, grime and gunk making it easier to keep high-traffic surfaces in your kitchen clean and safe.
Heat resistance – unlike some types of kitchen splashbacks, a glass splashback can be positioned about anywhere without having to worry about warping or melting. High-quality glass offers excellent protection against heat, safeguarding your walls and maintaining its integrity even when placed directly behind a cooker.
Cost-effective – a glass splashback has the potential to last a lifetime with only the bare minimum care and attention along the way. All of which adds up to an outstanding cost-effective investment in the practicality and visual appeal of your kitchen.
Easy to install – it really cannot be easier to install a glass splashback at home, the process is more or less identical to the installation of a single tile, calling for little specialist equipment and no outside help.
