Often, the nearly limitless options for kitchen splashbacks can feel intimidating. These five easy tips and tricks will help you narrow down the options so that you are more prepared for your room to pick the right glass splashback.
1. Select the best stuff
Glass, stainless steel, pressed metal, and tiles are some of the most popular products for kitchen splashbacks. Then suggest tiles or pressed metal if you would prefer to opt with a more traditional look. When the glass splashback content is picked, think about washing. It’s also worth dreaming about using the same stuff for your splashback as your benchtop.
In your kitchen, this will create a beautiful, consistent look. Consider getting a shorter splashback behind the cooktop in lighter work areas and a full-height splashback (this would dramatically save on costs if you have chosen for stone, for example). It looks very bright, as well.
If you are after a more modern and sleek style, then a great choice is glass. It can be colour-matched to almost every colour globally. It is super simple to keep clean. It has excellent reflective characteristics that will help bounce light across the room.
2. Choose the proper colour
You would have already narrowed down your options if you have picked your benchtop content first. You will determine if you want the benchtop to take centre stage, based on the chosen material.
In which case you can go for a more discreet, or even very minimal splashback that will not attract attention away from the benchtop. You may go for a feature colour for your splashback to add more drama and a focal point to your kitchenette if you have picked a neutral colour benchtop.
3. To add extra light
Would you like something a little different that would help free up the kitchen space? Why not add a splashback window if your renovation scale allows, and let the view outside bring colour to your kitchen?
This is an easy-to-clean alternative that adds natural light during the day and brightens your work environment. If a glass splashback window is not a choice for you, why not try a splashback mirror? This is an ideal way to make a kitchen feel larger than it really is. It will mirror the light in the room, both natural and artificial. Moreover, it can be a fantastic way to add colour, primarily if the mirror represents a view from the opposite glass.
