Transform your Kitchen with a Glass Splashback

Splashback image Insight DIY

The purpose of a splashback in the kitchen is primarily to protect the walls behind the kitchen surfaces, including the cooker tops and hobs. They are also really useful behind microwaves or worktop ovens, as they prevent steam and heat from damaging the wall behind.

Customers having a new kitchen installed will often choose a splashback to coordinate with their new cabinets and work-surfaces, however, due to them being so cost-effective, many customers are now buying splashbacks to simply transform the look and feel of their existing kitchen. There are so many options available that they can be used to add either a subtle accent of colour to your kitchen walls or become a fantastic feature.

Most varieties of kitchen splashback are designed to be wipe-clean and non-stain and are made in materials including stainless steel, copper, glass and acrylic. There is such a wide range of fantastic colours and even designer branded ranges available such as Laura Ashley.

Splashbacks are an extremely worthwhile investment both aesthetically and also in terms of hygiene and practicality, although it's important that you select glass over a lower cost acrylic version. The best option is a hardened glass splashback (so it will never smash - like a car windscreen) that's at least 6mm thick. Some Splashbacks are even supplied with self-adhesive backing, for easy DIY installation.
