A wealth of options are available, and factors like durability and appearance will most likely influence your choice. Some materials require extra care, a few are nearly maintenance-free, and others develop a patina that makes the counter surface even more beautiful as it ages.
One of the many reasons that glass splashbacks are a popular choice is down to how hardy they are. It is very difficult to break toughened glass – in fact, it’s quite a process to even attempt to break one! Strong force on the front of the splashback itself will not cause it to break. Heat applied to the glass will also not have any effect on it. The only way toughened glass can be broken is to hit it with excessive force on a certain edge, which once installed is usually protected by surrounding cabinetry or walls. Once broken, it will not explode into dangerous shards, but rather cube-like pieces which are safer to handle.
The unique ‘quadrangle design’ also has a multi-purpose nook that can be used as a computer zone/study nook, or a place to enjoy breakfast and read the paper. Framed by the eye-catching red splashback with a cut-out window, the nook is compact yet not boxed in, due to the window view.
Taking cues from the property’s location – nestled on the side of a nature reserve – the challenge was to blend style and luxury with greenery and secondary light that entered the kitchen through the branches of the natural flora. This required clever thought and consideration when it came not only to the actual layout, but also to the planning of colours and light sources.
