Do you feel like your kitchen encapsulates you?
This year it’s all about making your kitchen reflect your personality and your creativity. A great kitchen isn’t just about style anymore. It’s all about creating a hub that is practical, functional and reflects your aspirations for your home. Be it cosy and chic, modern and fun, or even traditional and sophisticated, your kitchen is an extension of yourself.
And what’s the quickest way to achieve all this?
Innovative, sleek and super versatile – find the perfect look that is all about you.
Decoglaze stocks a range of kitchen splashback options from bright and bold to subtle and sultry. It’s up to you!
So get adventurous, collaborate with our team and create your own design. Here are our four tips for choosing the best splashback for your kitchen.
Not only do we have a wide variety of colours on-hand for you to choose from, here at DecoGlaze we offer clients the opportunity to create their own colour. The options are limitless when it comes to picking out your favourite or favourites shades to install on your kitchen walls.
For inspiration, take a cue from this year’s Pantone Colours of the Year – Rose Quartz and Serenity (a cool blue hue). Retro pastel shades are truly on trend at the moment and pair perfectly with other seasonal favourites including metallic, and marble accents. Or go for a classic monochrome design that is bold yet refined, but can be lifted with industrial elements.
TIP: Don’t forget that darker shades give the illusion of a smaller space, whilst brighter shades open a space up. If you make your kitchen feel claustrophobic, you’ll find it hard to cook and move about.
The best thing about glass splashbacks is that they truly allow you to bring previously impossible ideas to life with incredible detail and quality.
It’s also a cost-effective way to get some recent kitchen design trends in your home for half or even less than half of the cost. If real marble is out of the question for you and your budget, think about incorporating a marble inspired splashback that will bring the marble-look to your kitchen without the marble-price. Or go for a naturally chic look with gem and crystal tones, terracotta hues and lush greens that are all about bringing nature back into modern spaces.
An instant way to add texture and depth to both small and big spaces, your kitchen will be dynamically sophisticated with a customised splashback.
3. Pictures, patterns and prints
If block colours are too boring or maybe not personalised enough for your tastes, don’t worry! The perfect way to make your kitchen stand out is a glass splashback in a pattern, print or picture.
Here at DecoGlaze we have a fantastic range of cityscapes, beaches, mountains and more. Better yet we also have option for you to create your design too! Take a picture of your favourite vineyard escape and place it in your kitchen to inspire your everyday cooking, or choose something sentimental like a vintage picture of a family lunch that reminds you of how food brings your family together.

4. Size and shape
Another important aspect to consider when thinking of getting a splashback is the size. At DecoGlaze, all glass splashback panels are toughened to Australian Standards. This allows for thermal shock and heat resistance. So, if you have a particularly tricky idea, you might have to look into simplifying it so that it meets installation standards.
From large and open plan homes to small intimate apartments, every kitchen is different, which means that every splashback is different too. So measure your kitchen up and consider if small renovations could change the space so it’s even more splashback-ready. Or talk to one of our professionals at DecoGlaze and they’ll be able to put you in the right direction.
TIP: A large splashback could overwhelm a space, whilst a small splashback might not have the impact that you want. So just like Goldilocks, you are going to have to find the size and shape that’s just right for you.
So what’s your glass splashback personality?
It’s easy! It’s you!
Just think of your kitchen as you would your bedroom. Every detail is about making you feel relaxed and at ease within the space. For example, don’t go for something over the top if it will distract you whilst you’re cooking. The same goes for creating an underwhelming look that makes the space feel heavy and drab. Your kitchen is a space that brings everyone in your home together. From guests to family and friends, the kitchen is meant to be practical, yet comforting and inviting.
So next time you’re in the kitchen, think about your favourite things, like your kids’ drawings stuck to the fridge, and then think about how you could incorporate them into something more permanent and unique like a fun glass splashback.
