Comparison of Different Types of Splashbacks on the Market Today

There are many different types of splashbacks on the market today. Splashbacks look great in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry and come in a range of shapes, sizes and materials. Absolute Glass Wellington is a quality Glazier Lower Hutt area. We have found that today’s splashbacks are extremely durable, striking and attractive. Here are some of the different types of splashbacks on the market:


Glass Splashbacks

When choosing glass splashbacks Wellington and Lower Hutt residents have a wide range to choose from. There are many different colours, styles and patterns available and also custom made options.

Glass splashbacks are easy to clean, versatile, modern and eye-catching. They are heat resistant which makes them perfect for use in the kitchen.


Stainless Steel Splashbacks

Stainless steel splashbacks give a contemporary look and are heat resistant. They are often used in industrial kitchens for splashbacks and also for food preparation. Stainless steel is durable and easy to clean. It does, however, have the disadvantage of being expensive, and can scratch or mark.


Tile Splashbacks

Tiles in kitchens and bathrooms look great, and there is a wide range to choose from. There are options to suit every budget. Tiles are not easy to clean and will become discoloured after a certain amount of time. Due to the grouting, they are not nearly as hygienic as glass splashbacks.


Acrylic Splashbacks

Acrylic is recyclable and has the appearance of glass. It comes in a range of colours and designs. It is very lightweight and is not affected by moisture. Acrylic is more expensive than glass and also cannot be used near heat.

Consider the aftercare, cleaning, intended use, and environmental concerns when you are choosing your splashback materials! When you choose carefully, your splashbacks will last you for many years to come. For the supply and installation of superior glass splashbacks Wellington and Lower Hutt area contact us.
