A nice kitchen with Glass Splashback installed
We all love cooking in a kitchen that is particularly appealing to us, as the overall atmosphere within a kitchen can affect our mood. If a kitchen is clean, well decorated, and has proper ventilation, you are far more likely to want to spend longer in there, thus producing beautiful and mouth-watering meals. It is also true that if a kitchen is very attractive, you’ll typically have far more energy to complete any other related activities in the room.
A functional kitchen with style
However, don’t be fooled into thinking that an attractive kitchen is all about the decor and having high-tech appliances and beautiful fixtures and fittings. In fact, a kitchen is far more attractive if it functions just how you want and also has a sense of style. If this sounds particularly appealing to you then you may want to consider investing in a glass splashback.
Glass splashbacks not only make the kitchen look extremely trendy, you can also provide a layer of insulation against the dreaded kitchen spills and remnants of food. This post will delve a little deeper into the use of glass splashbacks.
What is a Glass Splashback?
Splashbacks can best be described as an architectural feature most commonly used in areas of high humidity, such as bathrooms and kitchens. The main reason for the name is that it is capable of protecting the walls from splashing of most materials, including water and oil, and just about any other type of fluid. The splashback material will typically be able to withstand high levels of heat and is also very easy to clean.
The materials used for kitchen splashbacks are known to be extremely durable and will be able to withstand high temperatures and shock. The process under which a kitchen splashback is produced ensures that it is resistant to heat. A splashback can be installed in just about any part of your kitchen, including the walls, ceiling and floor. They are most commonly manufactured from materials such as glass, stone or ceramic.
Glass splashbacks are known to be very easy to maintain and you simply need to spray them with some glass cleaner and wipe down on a regular basis. They are pleasing to the eye and meet the specifications required to ensure they are highly durable. Glass splashbacks come in a wide variety of shades and colours and therefore can be suited to just about any design or style of kitchen. If you have a fairly plain kitchen, there are shades of white, cream and beige available, but then you may be more attracted to the brighter shades of blue, red, orange or green.
If you add a glass splashback to your kitchen, you are definitely making it more functional, as well as adding a sense of style to the overall design. Many homes have glass splashbacks specifically designed and tailored to the individual style of the kitchen and, as mentioned, you have a choice of many different shades and colours. Glass splashbacks may come in large panels or much smaller tiles; basically, whatever is suited to your own personal preference. There are even certain designs which also incorporate lighting that has already been embedded into the splashback.
