Glass Splashbacks or Tiles


Hi

we have recently had a double extension to our house and now have a really large kitchen \ dining area. We have installed a rangemaster cooker and we are now looking at finishing off the wall behind the cooker with either glass splashbacks or tiles.

Any recommendations would be welcome.

Thanks
John

Re: Glass Splashbacks or Tiles


At the moment we are thinking of going with a glass splashback but I don't want to buy online so I have found these who are just round the corner from me. http://roystonglass.co.uk/ see what you think but they look okay to me.

That glass is amazing. The black glass looks like a black mirror, georgeous.
What color and material are your countertops?

Re: Glass Splashbacks or Tiles


A backsplash is very much a matter of personal taste and preference.

In general, the backsplash should be designed to either coordinate with or contrast with.the other design elements in the kitchen: the countertop, the cabinet colors, the flooring, etc.

Here are 529,634 examples for you to get some ideas.

Re: Glass Splashbacks or Tiles


What color glass were you thinking about? Is that the only section you
are doing? Is there a microwave going in -- on the top cabs to the right
of the stove? What about an exhaust fan over the stove?

Re: Glass Splashbacks or Tiles


no microwave, yes there is an exhaust fan going in but still unsure of the colour for the splashback.

Re: Glass Splashbacks or Tiles


What style exhaust fan and what color?
I suggest to go to the glass store and bring home samples,
also ask their designer for some suggestions.
Do they have any examples of a mix of tiles and glass?
For instance black glass over the stove area and tile
for the rest, such as white with black border tile.

We have mirrored back splashes. Over my stove area, we installed
tile up 6" and the rest of the way up we did mirror.

Re: Glass Splashbacks or Tiles


I would go with an off-white subway tile for the backsplash. That would accent the countertops.

Re: Glass Splashbacks or Tiles


Can't tell if that stove is an antique, but I love it's vintage look. Because of this, I like granevans post suggesting subway tiles. It's a classic look that would would've matched the stove. However I'm curious as to how the textured glass turned out, I bet it must look pretty amazing. Pls share pics if you are able to.
