Splashback Colour Myths debunked

When it comes to adding a touch of elegance and style to your kitchen, glass splashbacks offer a stunning solution. The beauty of glass lies in its versatility, and with custom-made options, you have the freedom to personalise your splashbacks to perfectly match your color scheme. In this blog, we will explore the world of glass splashbacks and the myriad of color possibilities available to transform your kitchen into a true masterpiece.

The Art of Customization:

At our store, we understand that every kitchen is unique, and so are your preferences. That's why our glass splashbacks are made to order, allowing you to fully customise the colors. You can either choose from our wide range of in-store color samples or opt to match any shade from the extensive Resene or Dulux color ranges. This ensures that your new splashback seamlessly blends with your existing color scheme, creating a harmonious and visually appealing space.

Discovering Colors:

Finding the perfect color for your glass splashback is an exciting journey. To spark your inspiration, you can explore the color palette offered by Resene, a renowned brand known for its vibrant hues. Their color collection can provide valuable ideas and help you visualize how different shades can transform your kitchen. Additionally, Resene offers a "Colour Personality" tool to assist you in finding the color that resonates with your style and preferences. You can also browse through the Resene Colour Swatch Library for a comprehensive range of color options.

Exploring the Possibilities:

We encourage our customers to take color samples home to experience firsthand how different shades will look in their own environment. With a wide variety of colors and patterns available in-store, you can explore and experiment with combinations to find the perfect match. If you have a specific color in mind, we also offer custom samples for a small fee, giving you endless possibilities to create a truly personalized splashback.

A Kaleidoscope of Colors:

Our standard color options include a range of popular Resene colors, such as Periglacial Blue, Foggy Grey, Fuscous Grey, and many more. We can also accommodate custom colors for larger projects. Please feel free to enquire about the availability and any potential costs associated with custom color options. The Dulux Colour Atlas is another valuable resource that provides a wide array of colors to choose from, ensuring you find the perfect shade for your glass splashback.

The Beauty of Tints and Finishes:

In addition to solid colors, glass splashbacks can also be customized with different tints and finishes. Our slumped cast glass comes in various options, including Blue Tint, Green Tint, Clear (slight green tint), Crystal Clear (Low Iron), Bronze, Grey, and Blue Green. Each tint adds a unique touch to your kitchen design, allowing you to create a personalized and captivating space.

Debunking Color Myths:

There are common misconceptions surrounding the use of colors in glass splashbacks that we want to address. Firstly, the myth that the selected color may appear different behind the glass. We ensure the utmost color accuracy by using low-iron glass, which improves transparency, light transmission, brightness, and color restitution. This guarantees that your chosen color will shine through with clarity and vibrancy.
Another myth is that flat and slumped glass splashbacks only work with solid colors. In reality, you have the option to incorporate finishes such as metallics or textured patterns, which add depth, movement, and visual interest to your splashback, creating a captivating focal point in your kitchen.
Lastly, the concern that the selected color may lose its appeal over time can be addressed by choosing timeless colors or neutral shades that compliment each other.
