Splashbacks are essential for any kitchen. Considering all the spills that the surfaces in this room are exposed to, splashbacks would be prudent for keeping the walls pristine. However, your choice of material for your splashbacks will also go a long way in affecting the aesthetics of this room as well as the amount of time you will spend on installation. Here are some of the reasons why you should opt for glass kitchen splashbacks.
Glass splashbacks are easy to install
Other forms of splashbacks tend to be manufactured as tiles. Because of this, the contractors will have to take their time aligning them properly, grouting them, and more. When you opt for glass splashbacks, the installation process is time effective. Since these splashbacks come as panels rather than tiles, they cover a larger area at a faster rate. Additionally, these panels are already pre-drilled with holes; thus, the contractors simply need to secure them to walls.
Glass splashbacks are long lasting
Since the kitchen is one of the rooms in the house that takes the brunt of regular use, you would be better off selecting a material for a backsplash that can withstand the burden of this daily use, like tempered glass. This is toughened glass that has been designed to withstand high impact. Additionally, on the rare occurrence that the tempered glass breaks, it will not shatter into tiny pieces that will put you at risk of injury. Instead, it breaks into large shards that can easily be collected and thrown away.
Glass splashbacks are aesthetically appealing
Again, since the kitchen is used on a regular basis, it is also one of the rooms that is more likely to look decrepit before the rest of the home. This is why kitchen renovations are so popular. If you would like to give your kitchen a face lift without having to spend exorbitant amounts of money, glass splashbacks would be an ideal choice. These splashbacks add an element of shine and a sheen of gloss to your kitchen, which works to make it look newer. Additionally, the reflective surfaces of the glass splashbacks give the illusion of a larger space.
Glass splashbacks come with additional features
Other forms of splashbacks can be pretty bland unless you opt to change their colour to add a pop of brightness to your kitchen. With glass splashbacks, you have a variety of options you can consider for customizing them. You can opt for LED splashbacks that will incorporate lighting into your kitchen, choose panels printed with your family's photos to add a personal touch to your kitchen, and many more options.Share
