Q & A’s To Buy A Glass Splashback
Whether you buy a glass splashback from our online collection or from elsewhere, you need to know what’s what before making your choice.
To guarantee those full-on heart emoji eyes, this buyers guide will give you the lowdown to make sure your new bathroom, kitchen or utility ticks all the backsplash boxes!
So, when it comes to buying a splashback, think of the five ‘S’ for Splashback rule:
Glass Splashback Sizes
Most splashbacks go behind something – usually a sink or a cooker – so the sizes are pretty much standard. There are options in size or height so check which one fits your space.
If your chosen spot is a little more unique and buying a standard splashback just won’t fit, most places can offer bespoke sizes. Get in touch and check what’s possible.
Throw Some Splashback Shapes
As standard, glass splashbacks are either rectangular or square. When buying a glass splashback it is possible to create more intricate shapes and curves but as its glass its not always easy.
If you’re really hankering for something fully designed using graph paper, a sharp pencil and set square, an option is to go for clear acrylic.
Think Perspex for your splashback and its possible to get it routed out, trimmed and produced in all manner of weird and wonderful ways. If it’s going behind the oven, check it can still take the heat though.
Getting Some Style
This is our favourite part!
Wherever you choose to shop and whatever splashback you decide upon, make sure you pick something that really says you.
We all live in our own unique homes – don’t pick second best when showing it!
Sockets, Splashbacks – No Surprises!
If the wall where your new splashback is going has electrical sockets, make sure whoever is making it for you has a template and knows all the right info.
You don’t want to be lifting it in place and then realise it was my right and not your right when scribbling it down.
The easiest and most fool-proof way is to draw out the size needed on a large sheet of paper and pop in the whereabouts of the socket adding as much detail as possible. Use the golden rule of DIY: measure twice before jotting it down and committing.
