Choosing decor for your bathroom can be difficult. You’ll want to balance your tastes and ideas with what is practical and in budget. Minimising cleaning is likely to be a priority. But, you will want your bathroom to look sleek, modern and fresh.
Choosing a new bathroom is an exciting time. You have the opportunity to build yourself a haven. A place of peace and solace for restful baths at the end of the day, or fresh starts before your day begins.
As well as choosing your bathroom furniture. A key part of the decor is what to put on the walls. Tiles are a traditional choice, and are available in a range of styles and designs. But don’t overlook coloured glass splashbacks. With a range of coloured splashbacks available in toughened glass, it’s a great option for a clean, contemporary finish.
One or multiple panels can be fitted in your bathroom to suit a particular area or decor choice. We’ve put together a list of the benefits of glass splashbacks so that you can consider one for your new bathroom wall covering.
Speed and Convenience – Getting your Bathroom Fitted Quickly
Glass splashbacks can be fitted quickly and easily by most tradespeople who work in the industry, and require less specialised skill. The fitting is much quicker than tiling an equivalent space. If you’re using the panels behind your shower or bath, for example, you’ll usually be able to fit both on the same day. The large sheets are designed and cut to cover your entire wall surface or chosen panel area. Your fitter won’t need to attend for as long as they would to fit tiles. So, you’ll save on fitting costs too.
Cleanliness – Long-term Convenience and Hygiene and Ease of Cleaning
Glass splashbacks have smooth surfaces, giving a sleek finish. This neat surface also has a wealth of benefits for the cleanliness and hygiene of your bathroom space. Many tiles are textured. And limescale and grime can easily build up. Making your walls look dirty, even if relatively smooth. All tiles are fixed with a grout which can become discoloured and get grubby and grimy over time.
Easier to Change – Like to Mix Things Up? Have no Fear
Tiles are fixed to the wall using a wet plaster in a couple of stages, plus grouting to fill in the gaps. This makes it difficult to strip back tiles if you change your mind or just fancy a new look. A glass splashback, in contrast, can be more easily removed and changed.
The panel itself, once removed, can also be reused as a template for your new panel. As they are available in a wide range of different colours and designs. You’ll want to make the most of the options, so this flexibility will be welcome.
Longevity – Quality and Style That Will Stand the Test of Time
Tiles fade and become discoloured, and are often damaged or worn down over time. Far more difficult to clean, tiled surfaces collect more grime and slime. It’s always impossible to get this out of the nooks and crannies.
Avoiding long-term wear and tear and fading means no need to change your bathroom regularly. Saving you time and money in the long run. Unlike tiles, glass bathroom splashbacks won’t discolour. So, your bathroom will stay looking fresh.
