When it comes to deciding on which material you are going to use for your kitchen splashback it can often be a difficult decision. However, when you have finally decided on glass, your decision process does not stop there. You now have to choose which type of glass you are wanting to have and what will go with your kitchen design better.
The most popular is toughened glass, however there are more that you can choose from. There are many options for your glass kitchen splashbacks and it is so popular and is usually chosen for modern houses and kitchens.
But why is glass so popular? It has a long list of benefits which appeals to homeowners. If you are looking for a hygienic splashback that will have no grout lines, be affordable and available in an unlimited number of colours and designs, then glass is for you. You can further personalise your glass splashback by choosing a piece of artwork or pattern for it. Furthermore, glass is great at reflecting light to create depth and space around the kitchen.
Types of Glass
There are three popular choices when it comes to choosing your glass splashback and we will give a brief overview of them to help you decide which one is for you.
Toughened 6mm Safety Glass is one of the most popular choices and is the typical glass that homeowners go for. The glass that gets used can either be clear which has a natural green tint or Starphire glass.
Starphire Glass is a low iron glass which eliminates that natural green tint that some people may not be a fan of. Because of this, it allows for colour matching for light and warmer colours.
Mirrored Splashbacks are getting used more often in kitchen renovations as they are very fashionable and offer huge benefits. Mirrored splashbacks are heat resistant and are available in many different colours such as silver, bronze and smokey. Much like clear glass, a mirrored splashback will help to create the illusion of a bigger room by reflecting light, so would be a great choice for smaller kitchens. Mirrors also help to create style in the room and would go perfect in an all-white kitchen.
