Glass splashbacks: materials, finishes & installation

1. Glass selection

Naturally, all the glass we use for our splashbacks is 6mm toughened safety glass made to the highest Australian standards. For varying budgets and needs, we offer two types of glass.
standard clear glass
Clear glass: This has a natural and consistent green hue throughout and is better for darker colour splashbacks. To keep decisions easier, we have formulated colours that work best with this glass type.
low-iron starphire glass
Starphire glass: With a lower iron content, Starphire is the clearest glass available and works best with whites or light colours. It is also the best option for matching splashbacks with existing kitchen or other room colour schemes.
2. Colours and finishes

Obviously every client and splashback is different. We seek to understand each client's needs and provide splashback options to best suit those needs. In regard to colours, whether you desire a more traditional painted glass splashback (these are available in solid colours and metallic), a digitally printed or even mirror splashback we have the range and flexibility to find a solution for you.

We'll also provide samples so you can compare on-site what look may best suit the room. Alternatively, have a look at our extensive image gallery of previous splashback projects to see if they provide you with some inspiration.
Once a selection is made, the splashback glass is precisely measured, cut and ready for installation.
3. The installation process

Minimising joins

Our goal is to create a seamless splashback so the finished work has clean lines with minimal joins. This is done after careful consideration of how each cut is to be made to minimise the amount and location of any joins.

Mitred corners

Unlike many installers, we carefully mitre (45 degrees) our glass corners rather than simply 'butting' glass edges. This provides a beautiful finish to external corners of the glass splashback.

Colour caulking

Around the perimeter and where joins are absolutely required, we use high-quality silicone caulking of the same or similar shade as the glass splashback or your benchtop. This minimises visible lines and keeps a seamless appearance.

Job completion

Once you are delighted with your finished glass splashback, we leave your home as we found it – clean and tidy.
