When it comes to designing any space, your colour scheme will undoubtedly influence your choices. The kitchen acts as the focal point of many homes, which is why it’s a good idea to pour effort and resources into its design and colour palette.
Your glass splashback might seem like the perfect place to make a statement in your kitchen, but keep in mind that getting it right is far more complicated than simply repainting walls or changing out cupboard handles.
Here are some of the factors you’ll need to consider when deciding the colour of your glass splashback so that you ensure that it will last you for years, complement your kitchen space design, and match your cooking preferences.
Your splashback can be so much more than merely functional. Feature walls are increasing in popularity for every room in the house, and kitchens are no exception. You can use your coloured glass splashback as a vessel of your creativity, choosing a bright, signature colour that reflects your family’s personality and creates a conversation piece for any guests you welcome for dinner.
This works particularly well if you have more neutral-toned cupboards and walls. However, you can also choose a colour that complements other colours already in place. You could go with anything from a bright red to soft mint green. The only limit is that of your imagination!
Longevity of Design
It can be more cost-effective to make bold colour choices for your walls or cupboards, for example, while sticking to more neutral tones for your more expensive glass splashbacks. A bold colour for your glass splashback can leave you with an inflexible colour palette for the rest of the kitchen, limiting your options when restyling or redecorating.
You should also consider neutral tones for your coloured glass splashback if you are renovating your home with the intention of selling or renting it out. While your taste might include bright colours and crazy patterns, you run the risk of putting off potential buyers and tenants.
Another thing that affects the longevity of your splashback design is whether you designed it following a hot trend. We all know that kitchen trends come and go. So make sure that you aren’t making splashback choices that will only last a few years before you’re tired of it and want something new.
The colour of your splashback can change how your kitchen feels. If you’re working with a smaller space, a lighter coloured splashback can brighten the room and give the illusion of it being more spacious than it actually is. The smooth finish also contributes to the appearance of lengthening your kitchen space in a manner that alternatives such as tiles can’t.
By contrast, a large and sparse kitchen design can be grounded and centred by a darker coloured splashback. This gives the eye something to focus on and can make a kitchen area feel less vacant.
Keeping It Clean
Are you a messy cook? Splashbacks that surround your cooker and food preparation worktops often catch bits of debris throughout the cooking process.
A darker splashback is the perfect fit for a family that isn’t always the neatest, and it will perform a better job of disguising those inevitable oil splashes or food spills until you have the time to clean them up!
