Style And Hygiene The Way You Want It

Aug 13th 2014 at 10:58 PM

When it comes to looking for splash protection for your kitchen, bathroom, or wet room there is no material that is more hygienic or more versatile than glass. For many years tiles have been the main choice of consumers when it comes to protecting their walls from unwanted moisture damage however tiles are now, and always have been extremely unsanitary. Tiles are made from porous materials which absorb moisture, especially when it comes to the grout between them. This causes the build up of germs and bacteria which if left untreated could spread causing mould and other fungus to grow which could potentially be harmful to your health.

Glass does not have this issue. Being 100% non porous glass has absolutely no way of retaining moisture that could lead to possible germ and bacteria build up. This makes glass perfect just for the hygiene reasons alone, especially in areas of food preparation. As glass is 100% non porous it is also extremely easy to clean. All it takes is a few squirts of anti bacterial spray and a quick wipe with a clean cloth and your glass will be as good as new.

Now that we have ascertained that the hygienic properties of glass make them the most suitable material to be used in your home let us now take a look at the versatility of glass and the design applications that are available to you should you decide to use glass for your splashbacks in your home.

As previously mentioned glass is extremely versatile and as such glass splashbacks can be made to almost any size or shape, however only within the boundaries of modern technology and what fabrication machines are capable of today. For example if you are buying your glass splashback as a bespoke item then you can have your glass splashback cut into one seamless piece which means no unsightly joins, however sectioned splashbacks with joins are still extremely popular for cost reasons. Through the use of a templating service and the advancements in CNC technology it is pretty simple to have a piece of glass cut to accommodate your wall cabinets and extractor hood, and you can even have holes cut to accommodate any socket fixtures you may have on your walls.

You also have a near unlimited colour choice available to you when you choose to create your glass splashback from bespoke. With a host of ranges to choose from including Dulux, and Ral which are actually the most popular ranges on today's market you can rest assured that you can find a colour that will specifically suit both your preference and your home décor. What though if you decide that a plain colour is not enough for your tastes? What then?

The answer to this is simple. Instead of having a painted glass splashback fitted then you could opt instead to go for a vinyl image glass splashback which although more costly would be a greeat opprtunity to create a glass splashback truly unique to your home that nobody else will have. With a vast library of hundreds of thousands of images to choose from you are bound to find something that suits your style and personality, and the best part is if you cannot find an image to suit you then as long as you provide an image in a 300 dpi resolution then you can even have your own image used to make your glass splashback even more cutom, and that little bit more personal. Maybe you would like an image of your wedding day or a beloved family pet, there is no limit to what can be achieved with glass.
