Four key qualities of the ideal kitchen splashback

Kitchen splashback panels offer an effective way to protect the walls where you cook and clean. While the work they do may look easy, a splashback must tick many boxes to be of use to homeowners and not all of them are created equally. To help you select the right solution for your next kitchen project, we’ll run through some important characteristics that make for a perfect kitchen splashback you can count on.

Heat and waterproof

Splashbacks near sinks must be waterproof to avoid issues like mould and damp descending on your clean kitchen but those located by your cooker will also need to be heatproof too. Splashbacks are available for kitchens crafted from toughened glass that is exceptionally heat resistant and ideal for placing behind areas where you create your dining delights.

Attractive appearance

From bright coloured acrylics to patterned and glittery finishes, splashbacks are available in many different designs. While they should always be functional, to really shine, a splashback should also enhance the aesthetics of your kitchen whenever possible and with the diverse range on offer, you’re sure to find one to match your décor.

To ensure they keep looking at their best, the ideal splashback should have scratch-resistant properties. An unsightly scrape from a knife or other cooking utensil, when you’re washing up or making dinner can mar the look of your kitchen

Built to last

A strong splashback made from durable materials like toughened glass is a must if you want to see a sound return on your investment and don’t want to be constantly replacing it. Obviously, the stronger the splashback solution you select is, the more expensive it may be, but you’ll receive high-quality levels in return for what you pay.

Easy to clean

Finally, for convenience, you’ll want a splashback that is simple to maintain. Acrylic splashbacks are exceptionally easy to look after and can be wiped down with a cloth whenever required.

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.
