Coloured and printed glass splashbacks serve a number of purposes in your kitchen and bathroom. Not only do they protect your walls from being damaged, and make cleaning up after cooking much easier. But they also have aesthetic qualities. Which means you need to consider how they will look in your home before you jump in and make your purchase. Luckily we are here to help, that’s why we have put together our tips on to decide what colour splashback to pick for your kitchen or bathroom.
How to Choose Your Glass Splashback Colour
There are a number of ways you can decide what splashback colour to pick. But they are dependant on a few factors, and what situation you are currently in with your current room. Read on to find out more.
Choose a Complimentary Colour
One of the best way to integrate your splashback into a current room is to pick a complementary colour for your splashback. This doesn’t mean you need to pick a colour which is already present in your room. For example, blue walls shouldn’t automatically equal a blue splashback.
The problem with this tactic is that people are unsure how to pair colours together. There is a simple solution to this, use a colour wheel. This allows you to enter colours which are currently present in your room, and be presented with the shade which perfectly compliments it. Taking the problem of picking a colour out of your hands!
Turn it Into A Feature Wall
There are colours available for your splashback which are bright and bold. This gives you the chance to turn your splashback from something functional, into the centrepiece of your kitchen or bathroom.
This is a great option in kitchens with neutral tones. Traditionally kitchens are not places where we see bold colours. Cupboards and walls are normally various shades of white. With blacks and greys becoming more popular. However, this can be turned into an opportunity.
Simply Pick Your Favourite Colour
One of the easiest ways to decide on which colour to pick, is to just go with your favourite. All you need to decide on then is which shade to go for!
This is a great method for picking a splashback, as you can’t go far wrong with your favourite colour. Its always worth remembering that in many cases your splashback will stand out in your kitchen. As a focus point of the room it is always going to attract your attention. Therefore the colour you enjoy looking at the most might not be the worst way to go with your pick!
Many people already have a colour in mind when they are planning on adding a splashback for their kitchen. But don’t go with their gut as they think they should be considering a range of factors, instead of just going with a colour they like. Remember that its not necessary to pick a colour which complements your kitchen. A colour which is a complete contrast can be just as effective.
Consider A Mirrored Splashback
If you are struggling to pick a colour, a toughened mirrored splashback might be an avenue to explore. One of the benefits here is that if you have a kitchen you are happy with the look of, it will not disturb the colour balance. Many people are worried about spoiling the look of their kitchen or bathroom when they add a coloured splashback. A mirrored splashback prevents this becoming a problem.
This is also a great option for those who have a smaller kitchen. As we all know a mirror can give the illusion of space in a room. This makes a mirrored splashback a good choice for those who are looking to make improvements to a house before selling it.
