Here at Cool Glass we absolutely love splashbacks and think they are worth every penny but it’s important to be aware of the downsides as well. So, here’s an honest review of the pros and cons of getting a glass kitchen splashback.
Pros of Coloured Glass Splashbacks
The advantages of a glass splashback are many.
Here’s a few them to whet your appetite:
Shiny – splashbacks have an amazing shine to them and reflect the light brilliantly. This can really help light up the kitchen and creates an amazing reflection. Alternatives such as tiles don’t provide this benefit. The reflection that a glass splashback gives can really help mitigate a lack of light, if there are no or minimal windows or during the nights or winter days.
Choice of colours – the choice of colours you can access with a glass splashback is amazing. Bright reds, black, brilliant white, lime green, pink, purple and blue – all these colours are opened up with the use of glass as a material.
Easy to clean – Splashbacks are easy to keep hygenic and clean and wipe down extremely easily. Unlike tiles which gather mould and grime in the grouting splashbacks provide a smooth surface that repels dirt and muck.
Special Features – Splashbacks can be made truly stunning centre pieces of the kitchen with the addition of additional features such as LED lighting or Photo-based splashbacks.
Perfect Fit – A made-to-measure glass splashback will fit the wall perfectly, providing a snug fit and smooth lines
Unique designs – If you dont feel like going for the normal coloured glass splashback you can commission a unique piece of art with a special design from a glass artist. For example, Cool glass offers a range of unique artistic designs.
Cons of Coloured Glass Splashbacks
Yes, there are a couple of downsides to a glass splashback – here they are:
Cost – No doubt about it, a custom-made glass splashback is going to be expensive. Splashbacks prices vary hugely. On the other hand, alternatives such as tiles can also be pricey.
Installation process – Suffice to say it is pretty involved and requires up to three trips to your house to scope, measure and install your splashback.
