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]
Another great use of tiles to give the kitchen its dose of yellow and gray, this is an idea for those who are not too keen on too much yellow disturbing the existing color scheme of their home. The dozen or so lemon yellow tiles combined with gray and white pieces still make plenty of visual impact and yet also seem to gently melt away into the backdrop. Notice here how the LED strip lighting literally puts the smart backsplash under the spotlight.
Now here is a kitchen that tells you that the yellow and gray kitchen is not just for spring, summer or fall. It is a style that works all year long when done right, and we absolutely adore how the all-gray backdrop (including the wallpapered ceiling) lets those yellow pendants shine through. Another advantage of taking this approach is that you can essentially switch out those pendants (and the flowers) and add a completely different hue by bringing bright red, blue or even copper lighting fixtures. Adding a hint of gray and yellow to your existing kitchen can also be done without actually giving it a complete makeover. Instead of wrapping up the entire kitchen in these two hues alone, opt for a more reserved approach like the one here. The subway tiles in gray and yellow add color to this contemporary kitchen while leaving the Midcentury style of the space undisturbed.
