The kitchen is an important part of any home and toughened glass splash backs can really help to emphasise the look and feel of this focal point of your property. Extra light and colour can be added with toughened glass splash backs which can bring out the beauty and solid design of any kitchen. As a pertinent component of your self-build, an extra dimension can be added using this extra feature.
All kitchens need light to help them to shine and the reflective qualities of glass can help to add that unique touch and individuality to your kitchen, transforming it into a beautiful part of your home to cook, eat and spend quality time with loved ones.
A particular benefit of toughened glass splash backs is that no grout lines are evident. This makes the overall look and feel of your kitchen smooth and seemless. With very few limitations in terms of design, namely choice of colours, shapes and sizes, toughened glass splash backs can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. They help to protect your walls from staining and water damage whilst allowing for easier cleaning. For instance, a glass splash back behind your hob or stove will provide you with a much easier means of cleaning foodstuffs which might have otherwise caused stains i.e. to bare walls, for instance. Avoid marks and stains caused by water, grease, bacteria and other foodstuffs by opting for a beautiful toughened glass splash back in your kitchen. With toughened glass, you can rest assured that heat and knocks are much less likely to phase your glass splash back, meaning that it will last much longer and be less likely to shatter than regular glass. Remember, it’s the small finishing touches that add something special to a room. 0208 500 1188 or visit our website at www.expresstoughining.com for more information.
