Benefits of Glass Splashbacks

Resistant to heat

Glass splashbacks are incredibly resistant to heat, which is perfect, considering they are placed near hotplates.

Ease of cleaning

Because glass splashbacks are flat and sleek they are exceptionally easy to clean. If you splash food, water or oil against the surface during preparation in the kitchen you simply need to clean with a damp or soapy cloth, depending on the substance.

Great looks

There is a great range of colours to choose from in glass splashbacks. This means that you can easily find a match for your colour scheme. Glass splashbacks also look very classy and modern. The light reflection they offer can give your kitchen a more open and light feel.

Benefits of Tile Splashbacks

Tile splashbacks can offer a more traditional look rather than modern to your kitchen, depending on what you go for.


Tiles can come in a range of colours and patterns. Feature tiles make a nice addition to kitchens and add a nice touch to a plain wall.

Easy to clean

Tile splashbacks are also easy to clean as long as you take care to clean them properly and take care of the grouting. Using a toothbrush to clean grout regularly can keep them looking fresh.

Moisture protection

Tile splashbacks offer great moisture protection for your wall, which makes a great splashback for areas behind stoves and sinks.

There are many more benefits of each splashback and you only need to visit our Craftbuilt Kitchens showroom to find out more. Our showroom staff and professional kitchen designers will listen to your preferences and work together with you so that the kitchen you end up with is the kitchen you always dreamt of.
