    Why Choose A Glass Kitchen Splashback?

    Kitchen backsplashes are an ideal modern addition to your home. They can be fully personalised to suit your style and have a range of features and benefits.

    What is a kitchen backsplash?

    A glass or mirrored surface, usually fitted above a kitchen worktop or hob, can be called either a backsplash or splashback. They protect the kitchen wall around the cooker as well as providing a decorative finishing touch.


    Where can a splashback go in a modern kitchen?

    A splashback is fitted directly above the worksurface, with no visible gap between the splashback and the countertop. It covers the wall behind, preventing wear and tear from cooking spills.

    The height of the splashback and how far it extends around the kitchen will depend on personal preference. Many backsplashes are custom-made, so bespoke sizes are easy to buy.

    Why you should choose a glass cooker splashback

    There are both practical and aesthetic benefits to a kitchen backsplash.

    The practical

    Preparing meals and serving up dishes can all create mess – which often splashes or spills onto the walls. From sauces to spices, there are lots of foods and ingredients that can easily stain a kitchen wall, leaving unsightly marks.

    Glass splashbacks are a practical option for cookers and worktops. They make a great guard against stains or damage, especially around a hob. Their wipe-clean surface also makes them easy to maintain. You can quickly clean away any spills then use glass cleaner or soap and water to keep your splashback looking as good as new. You’ll enjoy cooking more, with confidence that the post-dinner clean up will be a breeze.

    The reflective surface of a kitchen backsplash also enhances natural light, so it will make your space look brighter and more attractive. This can be particularly useful if you have a smaller kitchen or limited natural light.

    The aesthetic

    Anything that makes cleaning the kitchen easier is always in fashion! However, with a wide variety of colours and patterns to choose from, a backsplash can also be a striking design feature.

    Although kitchen backsplashes aren’t a new thing, today’s vast assortment of designs means there are plenty of shades and styles that are perfect for a modern kitchen. Whether you choose a style that contrasts with the worktop or a matching finish for a coordinated look, there is a glass cooker splashback to enhance any kitchen design.

    Kitchen tiles vs glass backsplashes

    Glass backsplashes offer several advantages over tiles in a kitchen. These backsplashes are made from large panels, so they don’t need grout that can become discoloured or damaged. You don’t need to waste any of your budget on buying too many tiles because glass backsplashes can be custom-made for a perfect fit.

    Kitchen backsplashes are also easier to clean than tiles – there are no grout lines, plus the smooth surface of the splashback can be wiped down quickly. A glass backsplash design is a good option if you want a backsplash that is particularly easy to look after.

    Choosing the right backsplash for your kitchen

    Glass cooker splashbacks are available in so many shades that they can complement any style or size of kitchen. At Profile Glass we mix splashback paints in-house. This means we can make the design in any custom colour to match your home’s existing décor or any modern kitchen units.

    In kitchens with a large layout, a splashback can provide a continuous border of colour to make a big space feel more connected. In small kitchens, a backsplash is a great way to add a decorative touch without taking up too much space. Whatever the size or layout style of your kitchen, a splashback will help complete its look.

    Are glass kitchen backsplashes easy to install?

    Due to its simple design, a professional installer can fit a glass splashback much faster and with far less mess compared to tiling. They can be installed in various shapes and sizes to fit different kitchen layouts and configurations. They are fitted using a heavy-duty adhesive that will hold the material firmly in place.

    Can glass cooker splashbacks be installed over tiles?

    A backsplash can be installed over existing tiles as long as they are securely attached to the wall. This can save time during a renovation project and help you avoid the messy job of removing tiles.

    Cracked or broken tiling could affect how well the splashback panel sticks to the surface, so it’s best to remove any uneven tiles first to create a level foundation. The quick fitting process makes a splashback a speedy option for redecorating or updating a kitchen.
