How to Choose Your Glass Splash Backs

If you are reading this then chances are you have already negotiated the world of kitchen splash backs and, despite narrowing down your material choice from marble, tiles or even stainless steel to glass, you may still be feeling a little overwhelmed when it comes to selecting your design, style, size and type of glass splash back. Therefore, to help you, here are some top tips and advice from our experts, which will hopefully inspire you as well as answer any questions that you may have.

Much More Than a Functional Piece

At Glass Inspirations, we appreciate that glass splash backs are much more than a functional piece that serves a purpose, they can add colour, act as focal points and create a unique ambience that helps to convey your personality.

Material World

Having said this, it does not mean you have to compromise on durability, hygiene, or sustainability. There are so many designs available to you with toughened glass in a variety of colours.

Perfect Price

Like any investment, your budget will naturally have some influence on the final design that you decide to go for, this is something that can be discussed with you to help you choose a splash back that meets your requirements, compliments your home and achieves the exact look that you are after.

Colour Lover

If you have a favourite place within your kitchen, one that you are naturally drawn to such as your cooker or perhaps a food preparation area, then you might wish to consider adding a splash of your favourite colour.

Superior Interior

If you prefer to err on the side of caution, then picking a shade that is within the same colour family as your kitchen cabinets and work surfaces is always a great way of incorporating a subtle splash back.

Designs That Inspire the Soul

Another way you can create an eye-catching focal point is to install a digitally printed splash back which really allows you to let your imagination run wild and have a little bit of fun. The great thing about digital printing is there are no limits as our designs cover everything from fresh produce, cityscapes, flowers, woodlands and much more.
