Tiles vs splashbacks

Kitchens are one of the most used and loved rooms in the home but having a complete refurbishment can be expensive. There is an affordable easy way to upgrade your kitchen; glass splashbacks are becoming a popular trend overtaking tiles. What are the benefits and are they better than traditional tiles?

What are glass splashbacks?

Splashbacks offer protection for your walls against water and oil when cooking and washing up. Glass is extremely easy to clean and gives an impressive shine to your home. They can also be used in the bathroom where high volumes of water can cause damage and staining to walls. Our glass is heat resistant which makes it perfect to go above an oven and hob and all it takes is a simple wipe to keep them crystal clear.

An easy way to brighten up your home

Red kitchen splashbacks - tiles vs splashbacks
Compared to tiles, they’re easier to install and can easily fit into any style of home. Coloured glass also adds a modern feel to your home. Brightening up your home is easy with glass splashbacks as the glass will reflect light around the room. This gives you the perfect environment to whip up some amazing culinary creations to delight the whole family.

Give your home a stunning look that will leave an impression

Tiles can easily become damaged or corrode over time. Our glass is toughened which makes it durable and perfect for use in a kitchen that’s constantly in use. Tiles require regular regrouting. This can be annoying and if not done properly can crack and cause leaks. Old grouting can look untidy whereas glass gives a sophisticated finish to your home. Except for occasional cleaning, glass splashbacks require no maintenance, you can leave them to protect your walls without any hassle.

Glass that adds glamour to your home

Available in any of the over 150 RAL colours, it’s easier than ever to blend in with your current décor or create a stunning new look.

They can be made in any shape or size so if you want a bespoke shape, we’re the name you can trust.

We have recently had our front door and windows replaced by Jack of Glass. They were great. The communication was amazing, we knew every step of the way what was happening and they left place spotless. Our new door and windows have completely changed the house. Very happy and would recommend to anyone.

Jack of glass have recently replaced all my windows efficiently and to a high standard. The price was also very reasonable. The customer service was outstanding along with the services they provide. Highly recommended.

Mr Bennett

I had to replace a small double glazed panel in a window. I though it would be difficult to get anybody interested as it was such a small job. However, Jack of Glass did the work. They visited the house to take the measurements, ordered the replacement glass and fitted it all very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I will use them again.
