Back-painted Glass Splash

Kitchen Studio of Naples Vendor SampleMy new samples of back-painted glass came and I’m really excited about using it in a project.

Most homeowners are familiar with full height glass backsplashes.  In the past, full-height mirrors were very popular for making small kitchens look bigger.

Today’s hot trend is to customize glass panels with the color of your choice for a seamless look that fits in contemporary or traditional settings.

This is a beautiful product that can be templated to fit most splash applications.  I say most because it would be quite difficult if not impossible to get a full glass panel behind an existing exhaust hood.

The availability of large glass panels have also made back-painted glass popular in bathrooms.  They are being used for splashes, tub skirts and shower walls.  With no grout lines like you would have with glass tile, the glass panels are very easy to clean.

You don’t have to stick to solid colors, artists can also custom paint a panel in any image or abstract design you want.

If you are uncertain you are ready to put in full glass splashes, there’s an Australian website that has an incredible Virtual Kitchen Program on their website that lets you view 60 different color options. DecoGlaze Virtual Kitchens Website.
