Choosing a Splashback – What You Need to Know

With all the decisions that need to be made when remodeling the kitchen, selecting a splashback may seem like an easy task but it’s one that you’d be wise to allocate ample time to.

The wrong splashback could look entirely out of place and have a negative effect on the overall kitchen design, so you need to understand the vital factors to take into consideration to ensure you select the most suitable splashback for your kitchen. In addition to the aesthetic appeal and enhanced functionality of your kitchen space, you also stand to enjoy many benefits by selecting the right splashback.

Splashback Benefits – Why They’re a Popular Choice

The primary benefit of a splashback is to protect the wall behind the sink or stove and are, therefore, intended to take splashes of water, oils and grease, food and whatever comes their way. However, there are many other benefits to installing glass splashbacks, such as:

While there are excellent benefits to installing glass splashbacks in kitchens, it’s essential to have a solid idea of the factors that you need to consider when selecting from the vast range available.

Important Factors to Consider When Selecting a Splashback

As there’s such a wide range of splashbacks to select from, we’ve created a short list of important factors to help you make informed decisions about the splashbacks that you select for your kitchen.

Starphire Glass Splashbacks – Beautiful Colours and Reliable Quality

The two glass types that are used in the production of glass splashbacks are standard clear glass and Starphire glass, both of which are of an excellent quality and can be relied upon to deliver many years’ service. At RG, we recommend the use of Starphire glass for kitchen splashbacks because of the high-fidelity colour transmission it delivers that makes it possible to incorporate colours, especially light colours and pastels such as antique white or sky blue, into the design.

Standard clear glass has a greenish tinge to it, the colouration affects the colour of the splashback selected with the effect that it will have a green hue, something that doesn’t affect Starphire glass splashbacks as they’re colour neutral and are, therefore, able to provide true colour fidelity. This makes Starphire glass the most suitable product to choose when selecting new splashbacks for your kitchen.
