Finding the perfect backsplash to match your home décor

When remodeling a kitchen or bathroom, it’s important to pay attention to each and every detail. To find the perfect backsplash, you should consider back-painted glass with the ColourGlas process. This custom design piece, which has swept through Europe and Australia, is now available in the Chicago area. Read on for some considerations when choosing the ideal backsplash for your home.

Evaluate design and materials

When picking the perfect backsplash, it’s important to evaluate your overall kitchen or bathroom design. For example, if you have a more traditional kitchen style, you may want a bright backsplash for a refreshing burst of color. If your current kitchen design feels stale, consider ColourGlas for a more modern, vibrant, and hygienic alternative.

With ColourGlas back-painted glass, or reverse-painted glass, color is applied to the back side of the glass with a process that ensures long-term adhesion. This leaves the front side of the glass with a seamless, easy to clean surface without the grout lines and stains that are associated with tile, wallpaper or paint. Glass colors are also limitless, meaning you can easily find the right shade to match the rest of their home décor.

Consider installation options

After you have selected the right back-plainted glass, it’s important to consult with an installation expert in your area. Your custom glass backsplash can be installed in a variety of shapes and sizes. Be sure to choose an installation option that is suited for the space in your kitchen or bathroom. For example, in a smaller kitchen, you will need to consider the available space behind the sink or stove.
