5 Reasons Why You Should Install a Glass Backsplash

A glass backsplash can be a sheet of glass or glass tiles. It is placed on wall spaces between the upper cabinets of a kitchen and the countertop or a sink.

Backsplashes provide homeowners with the avenue to express their creativity with different colors, textures, and materials. Although more popular in the kitchen, glass backsplashes are also used in the bathrooms as well.

The ideal walls for glass backsplash installations are walls directly behind sinks and then stretch the entire length of the countertop, especially for kitchen walls. Here are 5 benefits to installing glass backsplashes in your space.

1. They reflect natural light into the kitchen.

2. The glass backsplash is easy to clean because there are no cracks and seams that will harbor dirt and food particles.

3. Other materials like granite and marble will require sealing, but a glass backsplash, on the other hand, does not have grout joints that need to be sealed.

4. The finish coat, which is generally applied to the back of the glass before installation, cannot scratch off from the glass sheet.

5. Glass sheet backsplashes transform your kitchen or bathroom from an everyday look to a luxury look.
