A glass splashback is there to protect your kitchen walls from splashes from your taps or cooking and therefore might seem to be entirely functional. However, like everything else in your home, you will probably want to give it a personal touch. Fortunately, there are many ways in which a splashback can be customised to fit in with your personal vision.
Firstly, splashbacks can be made with coloured glass to fit in with the overall colour scheme of your home. You should be able to find the exact colour and shade that you want. The kitchen is not just a place to prepare meals, it is an integral part of your daily life, and the splashbacks can easily be made to match the design both of your kitchen and the rest of your house.
There are also many different types of surface that can be incorporated into your splashback. They may be mirrored to give a smart and light feel to your home; it is also possible to buy glittered or sparkly splashbacks if you want a more jazzy feel to your kitchen. This is a very striking way of bringing your own personal touch to your decor.
This is where you can really let your imagination go. Splashbacks can have photos or pictures printed on them. You can choose from hundreds of pre-printed designs, from images of the natural world to works of art. However, you do not need to restrict yourself to a set image — you can customise your splashback by having your own images printed on it. Your kitchen could display a photograph of your family or a favourite place — or even a favourite dish to provide you with inspiration. This is a simple but very powerful way of placing your individual stamp onto the design of your kitchen.
Finally, the splashback can be shaped to your own specification to give an individual look to your kitchen. If you want to do this, you should make sure that the splashback will still do the job it was made for and won't have too many gaps and holes — but something like a city skyline can be a highly effective design while remaining functional.
