By Alix Aaron
If you are looking forward to give your kitchen a face lift, but are looking for suggestions and ideas, why not go for glass. It can be crafted around your kitchen to create an extremely appealing look. An impervious material such as glass will practically be best suited in the kitchen as it is resistant to dirt and can be cleaned quite easily.
One innovative use of glass can be in the form of glass splashbacks, designed perfectly for your kitchen so that all extractors, sockets and wall units among others, are taken into consideration in the template stage and that adequate cut-outs can be machined into the glass before the toughening process. As the glass will be toughened you can believe that the glass will be strong and will have no problem dealing with various sources of heat sources in the kitchen such as cookers, hot plates, stoves etc.
Splashbacks are glass installations that work as an insulating layer between substances and other parts of a given structure. Splashbacks turns out to be extremely useful in situations where you know that a given structure, fitting or piece of furniture is likely to be exposed to variety of substance that could probably damage it in the due course of time. Best examples of this include wooden dressers being exposed to bathroom moisture, kitchen areas being exposed to cooking materials, like oil, and washroom areas being exposed to water from shower.
Kitchen is the most important part of the house. It is that room of your home where you cook your food and enjoy it with your family. Even if you have a cozy kitchen, nicely decorated with colourful tiles and countertops, still, your kitchen décor is inadequate without a glass backsplash. They add immense beauty and style to your kitchen. Kitchen splashbacks can hugely influence the overall look of your kitchen. They shimmer and shine and give a classy touch to your kitchens.
Glass Splashbacks come in variety of exuberant colours. Fresh green, to seductive fuschia pink and from the subtle and pacifying sea blue to the scintillate gold. You set your imagination running and find the colour available in the market.
Glass splashbacks panels come in a wide range of sizes to suite your kitchen. They come along with a self-adhesive backing, which makes them extremely hassle-free to install. Not only this, they are made of strong glass, which makes it difficult to break. Therefore these glass splashbacks accommodate to all required BS standards.
The magic of splashbacks can be enhanced incredibility by setting up matching glass 'upstands'. An upstand is a glass panel that rests against the wall extending up from the countertop, making a beautiful embellishment that can extend to the length and breadth of the kitchen. Contrary to tiles, the size of these panels mean the joins are reduced to a bare minimum making them far easier to clean and less subjected to dirt and germs.
Glass Splashbacks is surely the smartest embellishment in kitchen décor as not only does it give a fabulous look but is also creates extremely hygienic space. Kitchen splashbacks is most appropriate for all those applications where heat is unavoidable. The Diamante Glass, which is mostly used for making frameless shower screen and kitchen splashbacks, has a lower iron content giving extreme optical clearness to the surface.
