Glass splashbacks are versatile. They can be used in many ways throughout the luxury home, always creating an interesting and elegant design feature.
For example, they can be used in the kitchen for the wall panelling around the kitchen bench and the oven hob. They can also be used in the kicker panels, which are the low panels on the bottom of your kitchen. Glass is great for the kitchen because if it becomes splattered with food or drink, it can easily be wiped down.
Glass splashbacks can also be used in the bathroom.
For example, there are shower liner glass splashbacks that are installed in the same method as tiles. First, the board goes in and becomes waterproofed and then the glass shower liner is glued to the wall and sealed in place. It is also possible to use splashbacks behind the bathroom vanity, and even the mirror.
Glass splashbacks are not only used in the kitchen or in the bathroom. They can be creatively applied in a range of other settings throughout the house, including in the interior walls, ceilings, joinery coverings, wall panelling in the entranceways and furniture. They are visually stunning in all other areas of the house.
A glass splashback will give your home a very modern look. Let’s take a look at several different ways you can use glass splashbacks in your home to inspire your next remodelling project.
