Five ways a splashback can make a difference

Take a peek into any bathroom or kitchen designer’s portfolio, and you are likely to find that the walls often feature splashbacks. The reason for this is that they not only look fantastic, but they are practical, too.

They offer many benefits. Here are five reasons why installing a splashback on your kitchen or bathroom wall can make a big difference to your living space.

  1. A splashback adds a personal touch
    It is easy to apply colour with a brush to a featureless wall in your kitchen or bathroom, but that is not very adventurous! Installing a splashback adds texture and individuality. There is a vast range available and a wide choice of materials to choose from. Be bold, as you can even have a glass, perspex, or acrylic splashback printed featuring a favourite photograph. You just have to let your creativity and imagination be your guide.
  2. A splashback adds protection to the walls
    The wall behind your cooker and sink really does take a hammering, because they attract all manner of liquids and food splashes. They create marks, ugly stains, and mildew, which will eat away at the wall’s surface if left untreated. Bathroom walls also have an increased risk of mould and mildew build-up because it’s a room that is often exposed to water condensation. Installing a splashback on your bathroom walls will seal and offer the walls full protection.
  3. A splashback is cost-effective
    Installing a splashback isn’t expensive, but it is a fantastic way of adding style to your living space without having to do any major renovations.
  4. Add value to your home
    A splashback adds visual interest that can make any room look incomplete without it. Plain, patterned, bold, bright, or a subtle shade of colour, splashbacks add value to your home because they are durable, practical, and look simply sensational.
  5. Backsplashes make cleaning so easy
    The beauty of a well-designed splashback installed in your bathroom or kitchen is the fact that it makes cleaning a doddle. An occasional wipe with a damp cloth or sponge is all that is needed.

Which material is right for me?

3mm Natural Crystal Finish

3mm Uncoated (natural crystal 3mm) - A thinner 3mm thick alternative to our 5mm thick panels. These are much more flexible than our 5mm panels, making them perfect for slight curves or situations where ultra-light applications are needed. These do not have scratch, mould and chemical resistant properties.

5mm Natural Crystal Finish

5mm Uncoated (natural crystal) - As the 3mm Natural Crystal but 5mm thick.

6mm Toughened Glass

Highly scratch resistant, toughened glass. Our glass is low-Iron…meaning that it is as crystal clear as possible. This stops the green tint that you see on most glass, meaning the colour will be unaltered and seen as it was intended. Tough and heavyweight items. Bespoke, unique, classy look. Our glass is heat resistant so can be used behind direct heat sources. You can have any colour or design…just as all of our acrylics.
