How Can I get A Glass Splashback For My Home

Sep 25th 2014 at 10:20 PM

As UK coloured glass splashbacks have grown in popularity, so too have the way in which you can buy them. The most common way in which you can buy a glass splashback is to buy them directly from a specialist glass splashback company.

this can mainly be done by submitting your details in to a company website. Firstly you will need to submit the sizes of the glass splashbacks that you are looking for. This is to give the supplier an idea of exactly how much glass will be needed to complete your order. You also need to include the number of cut outs that you may need in order to accommodate for the number of plug sockets or radius corners that you need. You will also be asked during your submission which colour you would like. This is not a vital parameter of the process as your colour choice is the last decision you will need to make and your choice of colour will not affect your price. You will also need to decide whether or not you would like to take advantage of a template and fitting service which is highly recommended as it is a sure fire way of making totally sure that your measurements are accurate within tolerances which you most probably will not be able to accomplish by yourself. Finally you need to submit your personal details so that you can be contacted to double check the information that has been submitted and also to work out how far away from the company you are.

Can I Buy Glass Splashbacks Online?

The previously mentioned way of buying a painted glass splashback is only really needed if you are looking for coloured glass splashbacks to be completely bespoke. If however you only require a piece for behind your hob area for example then you might find that it is better for you to order a stock piece. If this is the case then it is simple enough to just order a piece to fit your hob by simply choosing your size and your colour, paying online and then your item will be despatched within a few days.

here are a few issues with buying online however. For a start when you buy stock pieces you need to buy them in the sizes that they come in. Toughened glass cannot be cut to size once the toughening process has been completed. If you attempt to cut toughened glass then it will just shatter. The second problem that you will encounter when buying online is that you have a very limited number of colours to choose from meaning that you are limited purely to the colours that the company you are buying from provide. Lastly when buying online you have to take in to account that you have absolutely no idea which company the people you buy your splashback from use to transport their product therefore you do not know what kind of condition that your glass splashback is going to be in when it is delivered to your home.
