Glass Splashback Buyers Guide

Thinking of adding a glass splashback to your kitchen or bathroom? These beautiful additions not only look fantastic in any room, but they are also a practical solution. However, when it comes to finding the perfect glass splashback for your home, it can be tough to know where to start. 

Here at Me and My Glass, we pride ourselves on delivering the very best products and services for our customers. We also know how tough it can be, which is why we have put together our buyer’s guide to help you. 

Why choose a Glass Splashback?

Adding a glass splashback to your bathroom or kitchen can provide you with a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Cleaning 

Glass splashbacks are incredibly easy to keep clean, allowing you to simply wipe them clean as needed. Glass splashbacks are particularly better to clean than tiles, with dirt and grime building up on the grout. 

  • Installation

Glass splashbacks are very quick and easy to install, simply attaching to your wall through adhesive or screws. 

  • Stylish

Alongside being practical, glass splashbacks also look fantastic. Their modern appearance can transform any room, and they are a great alternative to aluminium and stainless steel options. 

General Information

There can be no denying the many benefits that a splashback can provide, but what exactly are they? 

  • Versatile

The best way to think of a glass splashback is as a protective cover for your walls. These durable solutions can be used across your kitchen and bathroom, behind cookers, sinks and showers. 

  • Thickness

We recommend that the best thickness for your glass splashback is 6mm. 

  • Toughened glass 

Glass splashbacks are also made from toughened glass, making them very resistant to cracking or damage. They are also heat resistant up to 350°C.

Colours and Finishes 

Alongside their durability and functionality, glass splashbacks also look fantastic. 

  • Clear & Tinted

Clear and tinted splashbacks are easily screwed to the wall.

  • Colours

Our glass splashbacks are available in a wide array of colours, ensuring that they can match any interior. Glitter can also be added to the colour.

  • Add a picture 

Alongside the colours, our glass splashbacks can also have a picture printed on them to create a unique design. 

  • Mirrored finish 

For a truly standout splashback, we can also create a mirrored finish, which can come in an array of tints. 

Measuring for your Splashback 

Ensuring your splashback fits perfectly is essential, but knowing how to measure it up is crucial. 

  • Location

The first thing to think about is where the splashback will be located in your room. 

  • Shape 

You should then decide which shape you want. Most are square or rectangular, but we can also create any shape you like. 

  • Measurement 

Finally, you should measure the shape of your area. Not sure how? View our guides to help you

How to fit your Splashback 

Once you have measured your splashback area, it is then time to fit it. 

  • Adhesive 

Adhesive is one of the easiest and simplest methods and is best for use on flat surfaces such as a plastered wall. 

  • Screws 

Screw fixings are the other option and are best used on rougher surfaces such as bricked walls. They are also used for transparent splashbacks where the adhesive could be seen.
