There is technically no such thing as the ‘wrong’ splashback for a kitchen. As long as you are happy with its form and functionality, nothing else matters.
But when it comes to the small matter of making sense of the options available, knowing where to start can be tricky. Particularly when it comes to bespoke colour splashbacks, which can be manufactured in any shape, size, design and specification.
The following four questions will make it much easier to make the right choice for your home:
- Will You Be Relocating in the Near Future?
First up, the length of time you intend to stay in your current home should always be factored in. This is because what appeals to you may not appeal to prospective buyers. Anyone looking to sell their home should stick with a relatively subtle splashback that blends in seamlessly with the surroundings. Bright, bold and brash splashbacks can look fantastic, but are not to everyone’s tastes.
- How is Your Kitchen Currently Decorated?
Taking a look at how your kitchen is currently decorated will give you a good idea of the kinds of glass splashbacks that will compliment your kitchen. If your kitchen is predominantly white or decorated in neutral tones, adding a burst of colour with a bold splashback could be just the thing. For classical kitchens of a more elegant and understated nature, a bespoke splashback designed to blend into the background could work better. There’s also the option of mirrored splashback, which has the potential to look fantastic in classical and contemporary kitchens alike.
- What is Your Preferred Budget?
Kitchen splashbacks in general are extremely cost-effective home improvements. But when it comes to long-term value for money, premium glass splashbacks are unbeatable. They can be kept clean and sanitary with a quick wipe they look absolutely fantastic and they have an indefinite lifespan. Glass splashbacks may cost more to purchase in the first place but represent the most affordable investment of all as they have the potential to last forever.
- Are You Looking to Make a Statement?
Last but not least, total creative freedom is one of the biggest benefits of bespoke splashbacks in general. If looking to make a statement and create an aesthetic that’s 100% unique to your kitchen, go for it! This can be an affordable way of bringing a touch of your own personality into your kitchen, with something that is not only beautiful to look at but also easy to install. All with the added benefit of an extra layer of protection for the highest-traffic surfaces, helping your kitchen look better for longer.
