Interested in adding a focal point to your cooking area? These Glass Splashbacks may not rank high in practicability in the kitchen, but they are highly modern and aesthetically intriguing. The most appealing thing about these designs is that you can choose any color or shape possible and have any image you choose printed directly onto the glass, to really open up the design possibilities. All glass is toughened meaning that it can withstand heat up to 220C, so that it can be positioned beautifully at the heart of your kitchen behind the cooker.
Upon ordering, all you have to do is provide the measurements, allowing 2-3 mm gaps at the sides for expansion, the desired thickness of glass, which can be as thin as 4 mm and the design you want on the glass, whether it is a particular color or an image. Once the user receives the kit, he or she will have to apply a few even blobs of neutral cure silicone adhesive to the back of the glass and assert some pressure when placing it into position. Alternatively, pre-cut screw holes are available. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Glasssplashbacks.com]
Yellow is one of those hues that seems to capture the joyful bliss of summer to perfection, and this is especially true if you add a light, mellow shade or even a cool pastel yellow backdrop to the kitchen. The farmhouse-style kitchen below combines this bright yellow magic with a dark gray backsplash and countertops to craft a captivating and relaxing kitchen. The flood of natural light helps add to the cheery ambiance. Here is another kitchen that takes the traditional notion of gray as the principal color in the room and yellow as the one used in moderation and flips it on its head. When it comes to the kitchen, there is absolutely no reason to hold back on yellow; even in case of cool, contemporary kitchens. Gray here brings definition to the white cabinets and makes a big impact even though it is used in a very limited fashion.
While some kitchens tend to revel in a flood of yellow and others look great when gray takes over the lead role, there are times when you need a perfect balance between both hues to create your dream kitchen. Yellow plays a major role in kitchens with styles ranging from rustic and farmhouse to Mediterranean and Craftsman. Gray on the other hand brings the urbane appeal of contemporary and transitional styles and even looks perfectly at home in industrial settings. It is often the style you choose that will determine which of the two colors plays the protagonist in your kitchen.
