Bringing The Glass Kitchen Splashback Into The Twenty First Century Posted By: Amir Butt Most housewives are very proud of their kitchen and would like to make sure they have all the most useful appliances to make their job a little bit easier. While having the best quality kitchen cabinet is ideal, care should be taken about the kitchen splashback, an item which is not so much in the news. A good splashback provides protection against oil splatters, water damage, food particles, and other items spoiling your cooker, the kitchen wall, and the nearby cabinets, especially when cooking. Practical Uses The most common material used to make splashbacks is ceramic tiles, which come in various colours, designs, and shapes. But even tiles can lose their looks, especially the grout used between the tiles which get dirty and discoloured very fast. Cleaning the grout requires care because you have to move the cooker to clean the tiles, and that is not a job which the housewife can do easily. A new material that has started making its presence felt are coloured glass splashbacks for kitchens which has proved to be hygienic and gives the kitchen a very professional look.coloured glass splashbacks for kitchens glass splashbacks coloured glass splashbacks for kitchens Advantages Of Using Coloured Glass Splashbacks For Kitchen Posted By: Amir Butt Glass is a very versatile material that can be used in many different ways in residential as well as commercial interior decor. Today, glass is extensively used even in kitchen decor as it not only adds to the aesthetics of your modern kitchen but it offers several advantages to home owners. Glass can be cut, carved, coloured and styled to your taste and you can use it in different ways in your home or office environment. Home builders are now using this material extensively and are especially choosing coloured glass splashbacks for kitchens. One of the main characteristic of this material is that it can enliven any space and make it appear more bright and classy. Top Reasons for Using Glass Worktops Glass worktops and splash backs are a great alternative to traditional materials such as wooden boards and tiles. Unlike any other material, glass has the ability to reflect and refract light in different ways. It reflects light to create a lighter, brighter room that looks spacious and feels warmer. As you can purchase coloured glass splashbacks for kitchens, you can easily colour coordinate it with other decor in the kitchen.Glass Splashbacks Splashbacks Glass Splash backs Glass Splashbacks Choosing A Splashback Supplier – Four Criteria To Consider Posted By: Justin Arnold What criteria do you keep in mind when looking around for a splashback supplier? Perhaps it’s convenience, and if there is a high street showroom near you then you may very well be tempted to pop down, have a look at the range, and discuss face-to-face what you’re looking for, and find out what’s available. But that convenience may be secondary to cost, and if you have a tight budget then it will be important for you to make sure you’re getting the best deal. You probably don’t want to compromise on quality, but you also don’t want to waste your budget. The third possible criteria you might be keeping in mind when looking at kitchen and bathroom splashback suppliers is quality. The quality may apply to the materials involved, the manufacturer, the range, or a combination of all these. Whilst it will be important for anyone to benefit from convenience, a good price, a wide range and high-quality, these factors will vary from one person to the next. This could mean that very often a splashback supplier one person considers ideal may not be suitable for somebody else.splashback supplier Glass Logic splashback supplier 10 Reasons To Choose Glass Splashbacks For Your Kitchen Posted By: Justin Arnold Glass splashbacks for kitchens offer many advantages, but for a quick breakdown of the key reasons why people choose glass kitchen splashbacks over the many alternative materials available, here are 10 key benefits. First of all there’s the installation. Because glass splashbacks are manufactured either in one piece or in large sections, with screw holes predrilled, and the sections of glass attached to the wall using a secure bonding agent, they are incredibly quick and easy to install into your kitchen. There is no messing about with grout, no trying to keep lengthy lines of tiles even, and no cutting and chipping away to try to work your way around pipes or sockets. The second advantage is durability. Splashbacks are made from toughened glass, and this material is incredibly resilient. After all, toughened glass is used for things such as the door on your oven, and many popular casserole dishes, not to mention chopping boards. Glass can withstand knocks, bangs, scrapes, acidic juices, sharp knives and the daily onslaught typically thrown at the average family kitchen. Thirdly there is the fact that glass splashbacks can be crafted in an astonishing range of colours.glass splashbacks glass splashback kitchen glass splashbac glass splashbacks Glass Splashbacks – Because Kitchens Aren’t Just For Cleaning! Posted By: Justin Arnold Whether or not you’re considering glass splashbacks for your kitchen, it’s worth reading this, because you may not have thought about them in this way before. Let’s be honest, there are three things wrong about cleaning kitchens. Apart from the fact that it’s often left to you! First of all, considering how much mess a kitchen gets into, regardless of how many children or dogs you have roaming wild, kitchens aren’t generally the cleanest places. From splashed food, sprayed food, chopped food and particles floating up with the steam, the walls of your kitchen can quickly become even more plastered than an enthusiastic chef trying to finish off the last of the Chablis. Yet what do we put on our walls to protect them? Unless you already have a glass splashback fitted, then it’s likely to be textured tiles with grout in between. Hardly the most sensible solution, and one that takes almost as long to put up as it does to clean each time you whisk a few eggs, whip up some icing or tackle a new casserole. Then there’s the hygiene factor.glass splashbacks glass splashback kitchen glass splashbac glass splashbacks How To Use Coloured Glass Splashbacks To Create Ambience In Your Kitchen Posted By: Justin Arnold Just recently a good deal of the UK was covered with ice and snow, and this made for some interesting meteorological images. The ice resulted in much of the country glowing an iridescent blue, and if you’ve looked out of your window recently and seen snow then you’ll have been aware of just how bright and fresh everything looks. Surfaces such as snow and ice have a striking effect on light, and the way it is reflected and refracted, giving an unmistakable glow to the whole environment that seems to have an effect on the way everything looks and feels. What does this have to do with coloured glass splashbacks? Because glass splashbacks and glass kitchen worktops have a very similar effect, reflecting and refracting light in a way which imbues the whole kitchen with a certain ambience which affects both the way the room and everything in it looks, as well as how you feel when you’re in the space. Just as snow creates a bright white, fresh, clean feel, so too do white glass splashbacks in the kitchen.coloured glass splashbacks glass splashbacks for kitchens coloured glass splashbacks 3 Contrasting Examples Of Glass Splashbacks For Kitchens Posted By: Justin Arnold As more and more people discover the delights and advantages of coloured glass splashbacks for kitchens there are more examples to come across in order to see just what effect they can have on the kitchen space. But for anyone who hasn’t yet seen glass being used in this way in the kitchen, or who has only seen one example of the way in which coloured glass can dramatically affect the look of the kitchen, here are three very contrasting ways in which coloured glass splashbacks can completely transform a kitchen immediately. The Cosy Kitchen Diner Increasingly many people are having open plan kitchens which combine the traditional kitchen with a dining and entertaining area. This can either be used for the family to sit round together for a meal, or even for entertaining friends and guests in the evenings. Having a kitchen which includes an eating and entertaining space is extremely convenient, but there can sometimes be problems. The main problem for people is the feel of the room, because often kitchens don’t tend to feel cosy or warming.glass splashbacks for kitchens glass worktops glass splashbacks for kitchens Coloured Glass Splashbacks – Adding Feeling And Character To Your Kitchen Posted By: Justin Arnold When you think of a mood, or a feeling, what colour do you think of? Coloured glass splashbacks could well help inject the sort of mood or feeling you want to experience in your kitchen, and here’s how. Often different colours will affect us in ways we don’t even realise. Colours can evoke feelings as well as be provoked by them. Colours tend to affect us in subtle ways, often targeting our sub conscious minds without us really being aware of it. Yellow tends to be an energising sort of colour, which is good in conference rooms. Green is a very calming, relaxing colour, brown a comforting colour, red a seductive colour, blue a very clean, fresh colour, and so on. Think of a feeling and you will tend to find colours coming to mind; think of a colour and you’ll find subconscious feelings tagging along not far behind. This fact is important to consider when designing any room, but perhaps especially a kitchen.coloured glass splashbacks glass splashbacks for kitchens coloured glass splashbacks Dispelling Popular Misconceptions About Glass Splashbacks For Kitchens Posted By: Justin Arnold One of the common misunderstandings where glass splashbacks for kitchens are concerned is that they are delicate or fragile. When you mention the idea of glass worktops or glass splashbacks people often tend to assume that whilst they may look very stylish, with a funky, contemporary look that’s very appealing and very popular at the moment, on a practical level they’re not ideal. Nothing could be further from the truth, and in this article we’ll look at exactly why it is that glass worktops and splashbacks for kitchens or bathrooms represent the ideal solution, not just as far as their looks and style is concerned, but from a very practical point of view. You may have children, perhaps children who enjoy banging toy cars on worktops, or you may do a lot of heavy cooking, with sharp knives, acidic ingredients and boiling pans, and it might well be fair to say that a huge number of people will consider glass totally unsuitable for such an environment. Yet let’s look at a few facts, which will reveal just how odd such an assumption is. First of all, let’s think about your car. Your car has a windscreen that’s made of glass.glass splashbacks for kitchens glass worktops glass splashbacks for kitchens 7 Reasons To Choose Coloured Glass Splashbacks Posted By: Justin Arnold Coloured glass splashbacks are one of the most popular choices at the moment for both kitchens and bathrooms, offering a truly contemporary look that adds far more to a room than might at first be imagined. For most people the reason for choosing glass splashbacks for kitchens and bathrooms is simply because of the way they look, and this is perfectly good as a start. However, the real benefits of coloured glass splashbacks go far beyond simply their stunning contemporary appearance, and there are many practical advantages to be had. Without considering cost, which itself is now fast becoming a benefit with many glass manufacturers offering increasing competitive deals, there are at least seven separate very good reasons for choosing glass as a material for work surfaces, worktops and splashbacks. In this article we’ll look at each of the seven reasons why you may want to consider glass for your kitchen or bathroom. Funnily enough one of the first benefits is not something people tend to think of when designing new kitchens or bathrooms, and yet it’s one of the enduring factors which can make or break a person’s love for their new design.coloured glass splashbacks glass splashbacks for kitchens coloured glass splashbacks 7 Reasons To Choose Glass Splashbacks For Kitchens Posted By: Justin Arnold There are seven excellent reasons why glass splashbacks for kitchens have become one of the most popular choices lately, both for new build properties and for renovations and redecoration. Glass splashbacks and glass worktops offer key benefits which often either outperform other materials, or offer significant advantages which other materials can’t match. Here are the main seven reasons why people choose glass worktops and glass splashbacks for kitchens. Firstly there’s the cleaning. Very few of us would list ‘cleaning the kitchen’ as one of our favourite pursuits, and most of us would list scrubbing the work surfaces as one of the least ideal ways to spend our leisure time. Splashbacks and worktops can often get stained and splashed, and if the food or sauce was hot, and it’s been allowed to cool, then this could well be quite hard to remove. Stains can also be a problem for some surfaces. However, you hear of very few windows that can’t be cleaned because of staining. Except in churches, which doesn’t count. Glass offers the ideal cleaning surface – just spray, wipe and you’re done. Secondly there’s the fact that mould hates glass.glass splashbacks for kitchens glass worktops glass splashbacks for kitchens Why More People Are Choosing Glass Splashbacks For Their Kitchens Posted By: Justin Arnold If you’re wondering whether glass splashbacks are the right choice for you and for your kitchen, it might be worth turning the question round, and asking why you wouldn’t want to choose glass splashbacks and worktops. Because when you consider the many benefits offered by glass, not to mention the glamour, the glitz and the style, splashbacks made from glass tick every box. Whether you are looking for a splashback behind your cooker, or right the way across the full length of your kitchen surfaces, glass can be manufactured in almost any size, and to virtually any shape. Glass splashbacks can be made to accommodate things such as awkwardly located pipes and electric sockets, and can even be integrated into the work surface itself. Curves, angles and grooves are all possible – in fact when it comes to splashbacks made from glass there’s almost no other material than can be as easily cut and moulded to the perfect shape, increasing the visual appeal, the presence and the style as well as decreasing the time taken to get it in place, and the number of joins in which mould, mildew and germs can breed.glass splashbacks glass splashbacks for kitchens glass splashbacks Why Glass Splashbacks Are Proving So Popular In The Kitchen Posted By: Justin Arnold Glass splashbacks offer a tremendous range of advantages when compared to the many alternative materials popularly used within the kitchen. Whether considering the benefits of glass splashbacks for kitchens from the point of view of appearance and style, or from the point of view of safety and hygiene, glass has qualities which cannot be matched by any other material as easily, and certainly not in a way that is as affordable. One of the first things people tend to think of when they consider kitchen worktops and splashbacks made from glass is that they must be fragile, delicate and prone to chipping or cracking. However, it’s important to remember that the type of glass used to make kitchen splashbacks and work surfaces is highly toughened. If you’re quite happy to hurtle at 70 miles an hour with a sheet of glass just inches from your face every time you drive your car, a work surface made from glass which is very much thicker and very much tougher is certainly more than capable of withstanding whatever you throw at it in the kitchen environment.glass splashbacks glass splashbacks for kitchens glass splashbacks The Practical Benefits Of Glass Splashbacks Posted By: Justin Arnold glass splashbacks glass splashbacks for kitchens glass splashbacks Why Should You Consider Glass Worktops For Your Kitchen? Posted By: Justin Arnold If you’re thinking of renovating, redecorating or redesigning your kitchen then take a moment to consider the possible benefits of switching to glass worktops. Whatever your initial thoughts or assumptions as far as glass worktops and glass splashbacks for kitchens are, take a few moments to read through the following benefits and advantages which they offer, especially when compared to many of the traditional materials used for kitchen worktops and splashbacks. When people begin looking at possible materials for worktops they will tend to consider one of three main options. For those on a modest budget they may well consider wood veneer worktops. These are made from a wooden core which is then covered with a protective veneer, and the veneer is available in a wide range of designs. For those on a less restrictive budget options may be considered such as granite or quartz, and for those who are looking for a more utilitarian solution such as in public kitchens, materials such as steel may be chosen. Whilst all of these materials and options offer many benefits, when compared with glass worktops those benefits can almost always be superseded.glass worktops glass splashbacks for kitchens glass worktops Glass Splashbacks: The Visible, And Invisible Benefits Posted By: Justin Arnold Homeowners looking to inject an exciting element of style and sophistication into their homes are discovering the range of benefits offered by glass splashbacks. In fact many newly developed properties are being fitted with glass splashbacks, both in the kitchens and bathrooms. As more of us are finding that we’re using our kitchens in a more dynamic way, and as our kitchens succumb to a tougher regime than ever, glass splashbacks for kitchens make a great deal of sense. Although many people choose to have work surfaces and splashbacks made from coloured or back painted glass simply because of the style and visual appearance, there are many more benefits besides the way they look. It’s worth being aware of these benefits, and providing yourself with the opportunity of comparing glass worktops, work surfaces and splashbacks to those made from alternative materials such as tiles, granite, veneered wood, quartz and even steel. The many practical benefits of glass splashbacks begin not so much with the day to day use of the kitchen in a family home, but in the installation of the worktop or splashback. Because toughened glass makes for a supremely convenient installation.glass splashbacks glass splashbacks for kitchens glass splashbacks Why Glass Splashbacks For Kitchens Are The Healthier Choice Posted By: Justin Arnold Why are so many more people today choosing glass splashbacks for kitchens, and glass worktops? Surely glass is fragile, delicate and a potential risk? With all of the other materials currently available for use in kitchens, such as tiles, granite, quartz, steel and wood veneer, why would anyone choose glass splashbacks? In fact glass splashbacks and glass worktops are certainly not as delicate or as fragile as they might sound. Made from toughened glass and available up to 19 mm thick, they’re actually extremely tough and very strong. After all, if you think about it, most of the popular chopping boards and food preparation boards you see in the shops, on television and being used by professional caterers and chefs are made from glass. This isn’t a coincidence, and today glass is definitely being seen as the ideal material.glass splashbacks for kitchens glass worktops glass splashbacks for kitchens How Practical Are Glass Splashbacks For Kitchens? Posted By: Justin Arnold There has been a great deal of interest recently in glass splashbacks for kitchens, particularly with certain popular daytime television shows highlighting their outstanding style and visual appeal. Certainly through the use of a television camera it’s clear to see the advantages, and many people have expressed interest in having glass splashbacks in their own kitchen. But although the visual appeal is undeniable, one of the real concerns many people have relates to their durability. After all, glass splashbacks are made of glass – aren’t they? Many people tend to assume that glass is delicate and fragile, and only suitable for windows, and even then, should be treated cautiously, as though they might crack or implode at a moment’s notice. The fact that these are the same people who quite happily sit with their faces just inches away from a very thin sheet of glass whilst travelling along the motorway at 70 miles an hour just shows how easily people can fervently believe one thing whilst failing entirely to put their beliefs into consistent practice.glass splashbacks for kitchens glass splashbacks glass splashbacks for kitchens How Do Glass Splashbacks Compare To Other Materials?
