As Australians, we love our food and we love the preparation involved in it. We are commonly known as a barbeque nation, but we are equally comfortable in the kitchen as well as outside. However, because we are using fats and oils to cook, our kitchens get a little messy and so anything in place that cuts down on the cleaning up afterwards, is very welcome. Typically, the standard Australian home has tile behind the hob but these don’t work so good. Because there are spaces between the tiles, this leaves lots of room for food and fats to get trapped and is a nightmare to clean later. Glass splashbacks are a different kettle of fish and this type allows for a full piece of glass that is smooth and has no recesses.
The fact that the area behind the hob can be quickly wiped down with a warm cloth and some cleaner is the reason for its popularity in Australia, but there are many other additional reasons why people should consider glass splashbacks for kitchens in Perth. Lets have a look at some of them here.
- Resistant To Heat – When cooking you need something that will catch the spitting of fat from food and the cooking fat from the pan itself. The glass splashback acts as the catcher of these, but it also needs to be able to withstand the high temperatures our food gets to, when we cook. It has no problem with the additional heat and what’s more, it doesn’t affect its shape or colour. This allows you to relax and enjoy your cooking, safe in the knowledge that your walls are protected and the splashback can be easily cleaned when you are finished.
- Many Choices – The great thing about glass splashbacks is that they can be bought in a lot of colours. This is especially important when you are trying to match the decor already in your kitchen. There are also a number of designs to choose from as well. It doesn’t really matter about your colour choice as the glass will remain bright throughout.
- Easy To Install – For those of you that already have a tile splashback and are now changing to glass, don’t worry. It is so easy to install and once you take off the tiles, the glass will easily slide into place with the minimum of fuss. It will give a great look to your kitchen and doesn’t cost a great deal of money to install.
- Additional Light – Because of the reflective properties of the glass, your splashback will provide additional light just where you need it. There won’t be any dark shadows around the areas where you prepare and cook your food. The light you already have installed in the kitchen will reflect off the glass and light up your cooking area for you.
Glass splashbacks are now all the rage and are a very practical thing to install in your kitchen. Easy to clean and looks great, are just some of the definite advantages to installing it.
