How to Improve a New Glass Splashback

A glass splashback is a great addition to any family home. Glass splashbacks can help to brighten up a dark room, creating a sense of space. Splashbacks are also very easy to clean. If you are about to have a glass splashback installed in a kitchen or bathroom, take a look at the tips below that will help you to make sure that your new splashback has a significant impact on the appearance of the room.

Install spotlights

While a glass splashback can help to reflect light around a room, it can only do so if there is adequate light available. By installing spotlights in your kitchen or bathroom, it will be possible to direct light onto different areas of the splashback. This light will be reflected onto the walls of the room, helping to make even the most dreary kitchen or bathroom into a welcoming space.

Choose a contrasting colour

If the walls or cabinets in your kitchen or bathroom are a light colour, you should consider painting the area behind the splashback a darker or bolder colour. Doing so will create a sense of contrast by drawing attention to the glass splashback, creating a focal point for the room. If the walls are a darker colour, you should consider painting the area behind the glass splashback a light colour to create a similar effect.

Coordinate the colour with the rest of your home

When choosing which colour you wish to use in contrast with the walls, you should consider how it will coordinate with the rest of your home. If you have lemon curtains in your sitting room or a particular colour of furniture in the dining room, you may wish to incorporate this colour onto the wall behind your new glass splashback. By coordinating the colour of the splashback with the rest of your home, you can create a sense of harmony.

Add additional features to the glass

If the splashback covers a large area, you may want to add some additional features to it. In the kitchen, you can add a set of shelves or a spice rack. In the bathroom, you could add a small cabinet or mirrored surface to break up the large section of glass. The contractor who installs the splashback will be able to offer further advice.

Coloured glass for beautiful light

People are always amazed by the beautiful light I get in my art studio. I always like to see their expression the first time they get bathed in that golden light. Of course my hidden secret is that I have had some panels of yellow glass inserted to give the light an extra warmth. The effect that coloured glass can make ranges from dramatic and artistic splashes of colour, to delicate and subtle shifts in colour and mood. If you are inspired by coloured glass then keep reading this site, as I show examples from awe inspiring and beautiful glass windows.
