6 reasons why glass splashbacks are great for the kitchen
August 14, 2018
Perfect as a replacement for any old tiling, glass splashbacks are an innovative solution for improving your kitchen. As specialists in all things glass, we at Jack of Glass have built up a wealth of experiencing installing them. So, here’s our 6 top reasons for why we think they fit so well in the kitchen.
Bolster its visual appeal
First and foremost, as one of the most frequently used rooms in the home, there’s no good reason why a kitchen shouldn’t look its best. Fortunately though, glass splashbacks are an extremely stylish feature and will significantly enhance the appearance of any kitchen.
Perfect for use behind the cooker
Any splashbacks from Jack of Glass are constructed from heat resistant glass. This means they can be fitted behind your oven without the possibility of them cracking or warping under extreme temperatures. This goes for glass hobs as well as electric ones!
Resistant to damage
Splashbacks can be constructed from toughened glass, which offers incredible levels of damage resistance – 5 times more impact resistance than non-toughened glass to be exact. This means they’re highly unlikely to crack in the event of any accidental damage.
Reduced amounts of maintenance
Wherever they’re placed in your kitchen, they can prevent a range of cooking residue from making its way onto your walls and staining them. Not only that, any residue that hits your splashback can easily be wiped away, due to their smooth, easy-to-clean surface. The cleaning benefits are especially apparent when compared to tiling. Tiles have grouting between them, which is a hotbed for dirt build-up. The area of grouting is also more difficult to access, meaning it’s trickier to clean.
Put your own stamp on the kitchen
A glass splashback from Jack of Glass is available in an almost endless array of colours, cuts, designs and finishes. With so much scope for customisation, we can create something that is highly unique. This means you can reflect your own distinctive personality, plus your kitchen will stand out amongst the crowd!
Glass splashbacks reflect light extremely well. Any natural light that seeps into your kitchen will be reflected around the room, making it appear a much brighter place. This can be particularly beneficial in North-facing kitchens, where light is hard to come by. For an additional boost to light reflection, mirrored splashbacks can be fitted too.
