Width and Height are in millimetres, please deduct room for expansion of your kitchen units and worktops to prevent your glass splashbacks from damage (steam and humidity in the kitchen mean wooden surfaces will expand and contract constantly). Typically take around 3mm off each measurement for a standalone glass splashback.
Fixing Method - there are two ways of installing our glass splashbacks you can stick to the wall using adhesive or screw fit- we drill the glass for you and suppy mirror screws to install. Sticking to the wall is by far the neatest option.
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. 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.

Glass Thickness - our standard thickness of glass splashback is 6mm, other thicknesses are available but please be aware that thicker glass can effect the colour a little. Generally speaking a 4mm or 6mm white glass splashback will be white, as you get thicker more light passing through the thicker glass will begin to alter lighter colours.
Glitter/Sparkle - our new sparkle range is a very fine starry night effect sparkle which subtly twinkles when caught by the light. Sparkle looks much better with darker colours, it can be harder to see with lighter colours where the splashback colour itself is similar to the colour of the sparkle. For white for example, when not under lights it may appear as fine very light grey dots. If in any doubt please order a sample to be sure. For darker colours, especially black the sparkle is much more noticeable.
If you would like a heavier coat of sparkle please just ask or type it in the colour choice box alongside the colour name and we will do our best to accomodate. Generally speaking he sparkle effect is subtle bu can be heavy to the extent of being soild sparkle if requested which creates an almost metallic effect.
Glass Finish - Our glass splashbacks can come in two different surface finishes.
- Gloss A standard, highly refelctive, gloss finish in low iron glass (so there is very little colour distortion)
- Brushed a non reflective, matte, finish not avaiable in low iron glass (so lighter colours can be affected by a green tinge- greens, blues, blacks and darker colours are generally not affected very much)
Socket Cut Outs - using a CNC, we can add your cut outs for plug sockets prior to the glass being toughened, once toughened the glass cannot be cut.
Cut to fit a cooker hood - we have a number of cooker hood profiles on file (for cooker hoods that are not just flat at the bottom). If your 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 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 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.
In the above example (Dulux Crystal Surprise 5), the fresh colour chosen in a gloss finish by the customer gives an almost perfect balance to their cashmere kitchen. Almost neutral in tone with a colour that can look almost white under the lights which works well with the white quartz worktops. This particular kitchen was carried out by one of our installation teams, we offer a full measure fit service across much of England, Northern Ireland and Scotland. Please click here for more information on that service.
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
The below sizes are in stock ready to be coloured- these sizes are generally delivered in around 1 week. Any shaped splashbacks, splashbacks with holes, thicknesses other than 6mm and made to order/bespoke sizes typically take 2-4 weeks as long as they pass quality control. Shaped panels take the longest duration as the manufacturing process is more complex and made using a CNC.
