Is a mirrored splashback a good idea?
At a time when space and light are everything, mirrored splashbacks are becoming increasingly popular. Homeowners and designers alike are falling in love with their graceful and pristine aesthetics. While commonly found in domestic kitchens, they also make stunning additions to spaces like offices, restaurants and bars. However, is all this splashback excitement just a flash in the pan? Below, we’ve explained why a mirrored splashback is a brilliant long-term investment, both in terms of appearance and practicality. But first thing’s first…
What is a mirrored splashback?
A splashback typically describes a material for decorating the part of the kitchen wall between the worktop and the wall cabinets. They help to protect the surface whilst bringing an extra aesthetic character to the room. A mirrored splashback, therefore, is one where this material is made from mirror glass, reflecting the room. There are several reasons why this is such an innovative and popular idea…
Mirrored splashbacks reflect natural light
You can always count on a mirror to bounce natural sunlight around the room. In the kitchen, this can help to create a bright, expansive space that actively lifts your mood. By reflecting the entire room back at you, furthermore, the splashback makes the room appear twice its size. It may be an optical illusion, but the effect will make the entire kitchen experience feel more open and free.
Splashbacks create a more social kitchen
With a mirrored splashback behind the worktop, you can cook and talk to someone behind you at the same time, without having to turn around. This may seem like a minor point, but the benefit this could have on your well-being is unparalleled. You’ll soon find that cooking is a far more calming experience.
Expert fitting for long-term performance
Our mirrored splashbacks, as with all of our glass products, are precisely cut and made to the exact measurements of your property’s interior. This means that, when they are installed, they are completely secure and will not crack under pressure. No matter the size, shape or style, we can source the right mirror for you.
Furthermore, we only use the highest-quality, toughened safety glass, making it almost impossible for the glass to break as a result of human force.
Mirrored splashbacks are easy to clean
Many people’s main concern with mirrored splashbacks is that they’ll get dirty or fogged up with condensation. However, all that’s required to keep the glass in top condition is the occasional spray and wipe using an affordable glass cleaning liquid. It takes remarkably little effort to keep the glass looking brand new for years and years to come.
You can customise your splashback
While clear mirrored splashbacks are incredibly popular, you can tailor the colour of your splashback to your exact style. The glass can be manufactured with a smokey tint while remaining reflective. Whatever the existing colour scheme of your home, we can assist in providing a splashback that matches.
Truly, there are few modern homes for which a mirrored splashback isn’t a good idea.
