Glass splashbacks can come in solid colours or you could have them painted for an added appeal. If you decide to make use of painted glass splashbacks, then you should be aware of their advantages and disadvantages before you have them installed during your kitchen or bathroom renovations.
- Painted glass splashbacks can become feature walls that will make your kitchen stand out.
- The painting is done at the back of the glass, meaning oil, grease and water won’t be able to damage the paint and the design.
- Painted glass splashbacks can help to cover any imperfections like bumps or cracks on the actual wall.
- Custom colours for painted glass splashbacks are also available.
- Painted glass splashbacks cannot be repainted. Once you’ve had it painted and installed, you’re pretty much stuck with that. If you want to change the splashback, then you’ll have to have it removed, the paint scrubbed off and repaint the splashback anew or buy a new splashback altogether.
Considering this, before you commit to a particular colour or design for your painted glass splashback, you must be very, very sure that the colour and design is actually something that you can live with for many, many years despite the constant change in design trends.
Here’s one tip that may be of help: When choosing a colour or design for your painted glass splashbacks, you may want to stick to the neutrals. These colour and design schemes can blend with almost any other design style that comes every now and then. This way, if you ever need to do kitchen renovations again, you wouldn’t have to replace your painted glass splashbacks.
