Different Colour Of Kitchen Splashback

Change The Ironmongery

Fresh cupboard handles, door handles and other fixtures can totally change your kitchen’s style. Ironmongery is one of the kitchen style choices where you can be adventurous for a relatively low cost. Whether you choose to combine fresh ironmongery with a different colour for cupboard doors, or just stick to new hinges and handles, it’s possible to achieve some stunning results.

Repaint Existing Cupboards

It’s been said plenty of times before, but repainting your cabinet doors is a fast, economical and straightforward way of achieving a complete change of scene in the kitchen.

Install A Glass Splashback

If you want an instant update that’s also functional and will last for decades, consider a glass splashback. A glass splashback can be coloured or patterned to match any interior design palette. Glass reflects light wonderfully well, giving your kitchen a light, airy look that’s enormously appealing. In addition, glass is resistant to deterioration due to humidity or temperature changes, very easy to clean and will keep looking good for decades. As an added bonus, glass splashbacks are a key kitchen trend at the moment.

Revamp The Central Island

The central island is a space that’s made for experimentation! Why not try wallpapering the sides of the central island? Or painting it a contrasting colour to the rest of the kitchen? If you like the idea of making a statement somewhere in your kitchen, the island is a great option to work on.

Consider Open Storage

Shelving, hooks and racks add visual appeal to the kitchen. Particularly if complemented with carefully chosen kitchen accessories, open storage adds an enormous amount of character and gives homeowners an opportunity to showcase their individuality.

Regrout The Tiles

Almost inevitably, tile grout begins to dull and discolour over time. Because the grout is set back from the surface of the tile a little, it often misses out on being cleaned when the tiles are wiped over. Fresh grout really brings up the colour of the tiles, giving your wall a fresh, just-installed look that’s enormously appealing.

Change Up Your Window Dressing

A new blind, some fresh curtains or a repainted window sill can make a real difference to your kitchen. Windows are inevitably a focal point, so an on-trend update to draperies or window surround colour can instantly update your kitchen.

Add Some Fresh Lighting

Lighting isn’t just an important aid in achieving the right ambience, it’s also vital to the function of the kitchen. Adding more lighting, swapping the position of existing fixtures or even replacing old, dated fixtures with fresh ones in a different style can all give your kitchen a completely different look.

Add A Rug

Simple and cheap but amazingly effective, adding a kitchen rug can provide an attractive accent and break up a large area of tiling that might otherwise appear a little bleak and clinical. Rugs can also be easily changed as fashions evolve – if you want a fashionable kitchen feature that won’t break the bank, a rug is a great option.

Add Colour

The days of relentlessly monochrome kitchens are over! A pop of bright colour is an up-to-date feature that provides warmth and adds a welcoming touch to the heart of the home.

Kitchen Renovation? Why Glass Splashbacks Should Be Installed In Every Modern Kitchen

Kitchen Renovation? Why Glass Splashbacks Should Be Installed In Every Modern Kitchen

The heart of the home, your kitchen, doesn’t just need to look good; it also needs to function well. If you’re planning a kitchen renovation, it’s well worth considering installing a glass splashback as part of the refurbishment process. A glass splashback is a solid piece of glass that’s installed on the walls adjacent to, and behind, the cooker. Its purpose is to catch any splashes or spills from the cooking process, preventing them from reaching the wall. Read on to discover five good reasons why glass splashbacks should be installed in every modern kitchen.

Adding value to your kitchen and home

Glass splashbacks are timeless home improvements that add aesthetic and functional value to your kitchen. Glass is a highly durable material that needs minimal maintenance to stay looking good for decades. A hallmark of quality and versatile enough to suit any decor, if you want to add value to your kitchen (and even enhance the value of your property when you come to sell it), glass splashbacks are a good investment.

Protecting your walls

Unfortunately, removing food stains from paintwork is a challenging task. If you don’t install a splashback, your paintwork will usually need to be wiped over every time your cooker is used. This not only creates a significant amount of additional work, but it’s also almost inevitable that your paintwork will suffer. Glass splashbacks protect your walls, allowing your decor to show without compromising its integrity.

Adding beauty and style to your kitchen

Glass is a beautiful material that reflects light wonderfully well. Suitable for both modern and more traditional kitchens, glass splashbacks look stunning and can really brighten up a wall. Splashback panels are a modern alternative to tiling that can update your kitchen instantly.

Making cleaning easier and more effective

Who wants to spend hours cleaning discoloured grouting? Because glass splashbacks consist of a single panel, they’re very easy to clean. They’re also an even surface, which is more hygienic than the uneven surface that a tiled splashback presents. Glass requires no specialist cleaning, simply wipe over with a damp cloth and buff to complete the job. Occasionally, a proprietary glass cleaner will be needed for stubborn stains or baked-on grime.

An installation that's built to last

Glass will last literally centuries! A long-lasting and green alternative to tiles or plastic, glass is extremely durable. It’s also immune to high temperatures, UV light or the effects of moisture. Glass doesn’t absorb substances easily, which means any splashes can be easily wiped away, leaving the glass in pristine, as-new condition. The lack of deterioration means that many people find that their glass splashbacks look nearly as good in a decade or two as they did when first installed.

If you’re completing the plans for your new kitchen, the addition of glass splashbacks could deliver a selection of benefits. Suitable for any home, they’re a great way to enhance the value and visual appeal of your kitchen’s interior.

Remember These Tips When Choosing A Glass Splashback!

Remember These Tips When Choosing A Glass Splashback!

The most hygienic, easy to clean and safe type of splashback for domestic use, many homeowners choose to purchase glass splashbacks for their Sunshine Coast homes. They are very attractive to install, and are able to add more light through reflection in kitchens which are quite dark. If you are thinking about buying a new splashback for your home, then our glaziers at Frameless Shower Installations have some ideas about the best way to make a choice.

Perhaps the most important thing to consider is where your splashback will be placed. If you want your splashback to cover a small area, for example at the back of the hob area, then you may have more options than if you choose to cover the entire wall. You may also want to consider whether you need other locations covered, such as a sink or food preparation area.

Eye-catching display

Your glass splashback can be extremely eye-catching, and you may also benefit from being able to fit artistic works or photographs behind the splashback to give your kitchen a unique flavour. You can discuss your design ideas with Frameless Glass Installations before you buy from us.


What colours do you want for your splashback? Do you want a translucent tone, or something that will fit in with bench tops or cabinets? You might want to consider giving the glass a bold colour to make it a statement piece, although you should remember that your taste might vary and what looks good now might seem outdated in a year or so.

Accommodating power sockets

Most modern kitchens will have electrical sockets where you want your splashback to be. This means that you have to consider asking Frameless Glass Installations to cut and shape the glass in order to accommodate the sockets. Carefully placing the splashback will help you to reduce the amount of work that is required on the glass before it can be installed.
