Because of its various colour options and ability to enhance your kitchen, it’s a popular fixture found in many modern kitchens today.

Glass is one of the view materials naturally impenetrable by water and bacteria, allowing it to be the perfect hygienic element to add to your kitchen.
Because of its smooth surface, there aren’t many hard to reach places when you are cleaning a glass splashback, unlike tiled splashbacks which can collect grime and grease between the tiles. Grout can become high maintenance as it can wear down over time, making it harder to keep clean.
There are no grout lines with glass splashbacks, as it’s installed as one piece. Marks and stains can easily be wiped away with a cloth.
#2 Heat Resistant
Toughened safety glass is the most suitable material to make use of in the kitchen where there is heat involved. This type of glass can be up to five times stronger than ordinary glass.
Tempered glass is also resistant to heat up to 220°C, so it’s safe to cook for hours without damaging your beautiful glass splashback in your kitchen!
Another great reason to install glass splashbacks in your kitchen? Cost-effectiveness. With glass splashbacks, you’ll save money in the long run.
