Whether you’re the homeowner or the homebuilder, it’s important to find value-adding and long-lasting features for the home. Time spent in the home is quite often spent around the kitchen, with open kitchens becoming more and more common. For this reason, the first upgrades you do for your home will usually have the kitchen in mind. The kitchen is often the centre of attention for potential buyers too – making it a very valuable area of the property.
If you’re considering upgrading your kitchen with a remodel, whether for appearance, more cooking efficiency, or to prepare to sell, then adding a glass backsplash to your kitchen should certainly be considered.

When working with your glass splashback, installer limits will seem endless. Glass far exceeds stainless steel, wood, and tile in customisation ability. Any colour can be painted on the back of the glass to enhance your kitchen. Matching existing colours throughout the kitchen and creating contrast are much more achievable with glass splashbacks.
It doesn’t end with colour choices. Having an image printed onto the back of a glass splashback can have a very large impact on the look of your kitchen.
