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.
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.
