Why Choose Glass Splashbacks?

Why choose glass splashbacks

Splashbacks provide protection from splashes and spills in the kitchen, and the decision as to which type and style to purchase can be complex due to the range of options available.


Premium Appearance


Traditionally tiles have been used as an economical choice of splashback, providing flexibility in sizes, shapes, colours and patterns. However glass splashbacks have been steadily increasing in popularity and offer many benefits, including ease of cleaning, durability and a bold, modern appearance. Darker glass splashbacks can also suit classic kitchen styles.




Available in a variety of sizes and colours, glass splashbacks offer fantastic flexibility. Splashbacks can be customised depending on the location it will be used, and drill holes and cut outs can be requested, for example for plug sockets and taps. The splashback can be purchased as a standard or customised size, ensuring a perfect fit.


Flexibility on a Tight Budget


Although glass splashbacks are generally a higher overall cost than most other splashback options, they offer long-lasting, unique and low maintenance protection for any kitchen. For those on a tight budget, glass splashbacks can still be used – the cost will be reduced the smaller the area to be covered. If the splashback is to be installed in one area, for example around the hob, costs will be significantly lower than covering a whole wall. The amount of modifications, such as cut outs, will increase the price; as will installation and delivery if required. Therefore the cost of glass splashbacks can be kept to a minimum if managed well.


Personalisation and Maintenance


Compared to other types of splashback, glass offers a modern and bold style which, depending on budget, can be personalised further, for example by adding lighting to complement the shine of the glass. Also, as no grout is required to install the splashback there is no need to worry about staining or moulding. Less maintenance is required as the glass can be cleaned easily with a soft cloth.


The use of glass as a splashback option offers homeowners a stylish, premium alternative to traditional splashback materials. The flexibility of colours available means a splashback can be produced for any colour or style of kitchen, and splashbacks can be modified depending on the location, e.g. to take into account plug sockets and switches.
