Keeping it clean – glass splashbacks in the bathroom

Friday 28th August, 2020

What do Dolly Parton’s Jolene, Culture Club’s Karma Chameleon and Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off have in common? They all have choruses lasting over 20 seconds and in recent times have accompanied vigorous handwashing in bathrooms the world over. With higher than ever standards of cleanliness set to continue for the foreseeable future, it may be time to spruce up your bathroom with glass splashbacks from Tufwell Glass.

What is a glass splashback?

An increasingly popular choice in residential and commercial settings, a glass splashback is a panel of toughened glass, wall mounted in the setting of your choice. Typically found in bathrooms and kitchens, glass splashbacks protect walls from marks that could otherwise stain. Glass splashbacks come in all shapes, sizes and colours, and can be cut-to-size to meet requirements. In fact, Tufwell cuts its glass products using computer numerical control (CNC) technology for guaranteed precision. Glass splashbacks are durable and easy to install, making them a cost-effective and low-disruption choice for bathroom redesign.

Why glass?

Glass is one of the most hygienic materials to use for interiors and exteriors. Glass products are low-maintenance, and as glass splashbacks are usually made from a single piece of smooth glass with no seams or joins, they are easy to clean, making re-grouting of bathroom tiles a thing of the past.

Glass splashbacks are cost-effective. Tufwell’s glass splashbacks are made from toughened glass which is up to five times as strong as ordinary glass and heat and impact resistant. Our glass splashbacks are durable and long-lasting.

Glass is unquestionably one of the most aesthetically appealing materials, adding a sense of style to any space. Glass splashbacks can be ordered in frosted, coloured or printed finishes, tailored to your existing décor or to introduce change. Glass splashbacks reflect light, making even the smallest bathroom space appear larger and brighter. Glass splashbacks can be shaped to accommodate taps, brackets and plumbing fittings.

Popular uses

A glass splashback around a sink can protect walls from soap and toothpaste marks. The use of coloured glass in sink splashbacks can add style and personality to what is a functional space.

You can surround a bath with an easy to clean glass splashback, eliminating the need to clean grout and tiles. Printed glass panels installed around a bath can transport the bather to a sandy beach or tropical oasis – creating a luxury experience in the home or for paying guests.

Shower enclosures can be transformed with a bespoke glass splashback. Frosted glass is ideal for use in shower glass splashbacks as they blur objectives and people behind them to allow for privacy whilst still enabling natural light to filter through.
