Advice and New Trends in Glass Splashbacks 

March 2013

Glass splashbacks are the last piece of the kitchen puzzle to be installed and can often be overlooked. Whether renovating your kitchen or building a new house glass splashbacks add that final touch, so it’s important to think about splashbacks in the early stages of the design process.

Here are some splashback tips to consider when renovating or designing a new kitchen

Colours When designing your kitchen it’s important to think about your splashback colour. You’ll be deciding on bench top, cabinetry and wall colours, so it’s a good idea to have all the right colours chosen at the start.

Power Points Fortunately, glass is very practical and can be cut to accommodate power point and switch holes. Though having a glass splashback with power points can affect the overall look and feel, and they do add to the cost of your splashback. It’s a good idea to talk with your electrician and kitchen designer about placement options for the power points.

Rangehoods Generally come with a straight or curved bottom. Glass can be cut and polished to fit directly under a straight rangehood. Or, the glass splashback can shaped to fit the arc of a curved ranghood. Another option is to carry the glass up to the ceiling from the bench top and have the rangehood fitted over the glass.
