These eye popping glass backsplashes are currently very popular in Australia and the U.K. The trend is also catching on in the U.S. as consumers lean more toward contemporary European style kitchens. These backsplashes are typically made of laminated glass with the inner layer containing the color or design.
Here is an original design made by U.K. based Windsor Glass. Custom glass shops such as Windsor allow the designer total freedom of expression providing stunning artistic results.
Another project from Windsor is shown here. Notice how absolutely crisp and clean this laminated glass application looks. Truly a perfect match for this contemporary kitchen design. Imagine the future as technology progresses; perhaps custom scrolling graphics might be possible. Slide show photos of your last vacation or even TV right on the wall behind your range.
This bright red laminated glass backsplash is from the Australian custom glass maker Celsius. What a great way to warm up any kitchen. Because each piece is custom made the color possibilities are endless. Let your imagination run wild and make a bold statement.
Here is a very cool idea from U.K. based Splashback Glass. This particular application will actually change colors via a remote control unit. Owners can run color programs so a plain sheet of glass will fade from one shade to the next using low energy L.E.D. lighting.
Also from Splashback Glass is this lime green backsplash. This color really looks great with the a dark cabinet stain color. It manages to be hot and cool at the same time.
I can’t say I’m wild about all the outlets showing here. In fact, to make the most of these backsplashes I’d opt for an under cabinet outlet system.
Wherever these glass panels are utilized there is no doubt that they are a great look. They offer an excellent alternative to wall tiles that have been the norm in most kitchen and bath projects.
