Why Glass Splashbacks Are Good for Your Kitchen

Stains on kitchen surfaces can be gross to look at, mainly because what you eat comes from your kitchen. Tiles are notoriously hard to clean, especially at the joints. You have to use detergents, hot water and lots of effort. That's where glass splashbacks come in. Glass splashbacks are very popular for kitchens. Many people order and have glass splashbacks installed. It turns out that there are many benefits to using them in your kitchen. Here are the five benefits.

Helps protect your walls

Once the paint on your wall is damaged, repainting can be quite expensive, and you may have to give enough time for the walls to dry before using the kitchen again. Glass splashbacks protect your kitchen walls from stains, splashes and damage. Unlike tiled splashbacks which can easily be damaged or stained, glass splashbacks lack seams and gaps. Hence, they are better at protecting your walls.

Easy to clean and hygienic

Ever tried to get a stain off a kitchen surface? It is not easy to clean tiled splashbacks. The spaces between the tiles can be mouldy, greasy and dirty. Since glass splashbacks are seamless, flat, sleek and smooth, cleaning them is a lot simpler without the need to worry about mould and dirt even in the hard-to-reach areas.

Splashbacks have better aesthetics

How your kitchen splashback looks denotes the quality of your kitchen and gives it character. Glass splashbacks are available in unlimited shapes, colours, finishes and designs. You can also have a unique design custom-built to reflect your tastes. After painting, splashbacks can be drilled, toughened and polished to your specification. Replacing old splashbacks with glass splashbacks is not only easy but also has a big positive impact. Your kitchen will look more classy and elegant.

Easy installation

Installing a conventional tiled kitchen splashback takes a lot of time as the tiles must be fitted one at a time with an emphasis on proper alignment. However, splashbacks can be cut to your kitchen's dimensions to allow easy and fast installation. Glass splashbacks are easier to install in challenging corners than tiled splashbacks. All you need to do is to apply an adhesive to the back of the glass splashback and stick it to the wall.


While glass splashbacks are often perceived as more expensive than tiled splashbacks, their strength and longevity make every penny worth it. Once you install glass splashbacks, there is no need to replace them like tiled splashbacks. Besides, a glass splashback expert will be more than happy to visit your home, probably provide free samples so that you can find the best splashback for your kitchen. If you have the funds, invest in your kitchen's look.
