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 should you have a Glass Splashback?
Adding a glass splashback to your bathroom or kitchen can provide you with a wide range of benefits, including:
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.
Glass splashbacks are very quick and easy to install, simply attaching to your wall through adhesive or screws.
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.
There can be no denying the many benefits that a splashback can provide, but what exactly are they?
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.
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.
Our glass splashbacks are available in a wide array of colours, ensuring that they can match any interior.
- 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.
The first thing to think about is where the splashback will be located in your room.
You should then decide which shape you want. Most are square or rectangular, but we can also create any shape you like.
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 is one of the easiest and simplest methods and is best for use on flat surfaces such as a plastered wall.
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.
