Glass splashback ideas for a kitchen that’s uniquely you
We’re heading into the busiest time of year for your family (and your kitchen), which means it’s the perfect time to dream about what your ideal kitchen might look like.
From gleaming taps and European appliances to a ginormous pantry and the finishing touch – glass splashbacks! I don’t know much about taps and appliances, but I can tell you everything I know about splashbacks. So let’s talk about what’s trending right now and come up with some glass splashback ideas and inspiration for your space.
Why choose glass splashbacks?
When you’re looking at your options, there’s so much to choose from – tiles, stainless steel, marble… but you’ll probably find you keep coming back to glass splashbacks. Here’s why:
- They’re easy to clean – wipe and you’re done!
- No mould issues
- They’re heat resistant
- They’re affordable
- They’re glossy and bounce light back into your room
- A professional can make them to measure so they’re the perfect fit
- They come in a range of colours and finishes so you really can match them to your space and make your splashbacks 100% unique to you
Choosing your kitchen splashbacks is kind of a big deal. You’ll spend so much time in your kitchen cooking, cleaning, drinking coffee (or cocktails), helping the kids with homework, and entertaining guests. So think about investing in glass splashbacks that aren’t just functional and easy to clean, but beautiful, too.
5 glass splashback ideas and trends
Hunting for your perfect kitchen upgrade? We’ve got you covered with these five glass splashback ideas and inspiration…
1. Glossy, neutral tones
You can’t go past a classic glossy and neutral look for your glass splashbacks. The idea is to reflect as much light as you can so your space looks clean, bright, and welcoming. Exactly what you want when you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your kitchen! It’s also the safest option for small kitchen spaces and has broad market appeal if you plan to sell your home in the next few years. Choose white, cream, grey, or black to complement your existing cupboards and wall colour.
2. Bright statement colours
Neutral’s great for some people, but for many homeowners, splashbacks are a chance to add some excitement and adventure in their home. Nothing says “welcome to my kitchen” like a bright, cheerful coloured splashback! Especially if you’ve got matching or complementary appliances. Popular colours right now are deep red, turquoise, and bright yellow.
3. Mirror splashbacks
Mirrors are an amazing design feature for bathrooms and around the home. But why not use them in the kitchen, too? Reflect more light around your space and get the next best thing to eyes on the back of your head while you’re cooking in your kitchen. (No sneaking up on you or sneaking food off the counter anymore!). Go with mirror splashbacks if you’re looking for something functional, stylish, and different to most homes out there.
4. Patterned glass splashbacks
Did you know you can get patterns designed and printed on your glass splashbacks? Cool idea, right? You can take your kitchen from everyday to WOW with printed patterns to suit your style.. Because why stick to one flat colour when you can jazz things up and make a statement? If your kitchen is feeling a little flat and boring, this might be just what you’re looking for.
5. Digitally printed glass splashbacks with photos
Make a statement about who you are and what you love the most with printed glass splashbacks. Your imagination really is the limit with these because you can print any photo on your splashbacks to display in your kitchen forever, whether it’s one you’ve taken, a landmark that’s special to you, or something else. You can read more on this up and coming trend in my previous article, digitally printed glass splashbacks.
