Why Have a Splashback Installed?

Salop Glass are well known for our first-class products and the high quality of the materials that we use to manufacture our installations, including our double glazing, conservatories and orangeries.

However, while uPVC windows, conservatories, and conservatories are our bread and butter, they are not the only products we carry. Another excellent product that we sell is our selection of bespoke splashbacks. Splashbacks are a fantastic way of adding an extra layer of beauty to your home or space, in a way that isn’t worn out or requires planning permission.

What Are Splashbacks?

Splashbacks, as their name suggests, are sheets of glass that are installed on the walls of your home. As well as providing a layer of aesthetic beauty, they can (depending on the use case) also provide a layer of protection. In this article from Salop Glass, we’ll be going over the various levels of protection that splashbacks offer your home.


Many clients choose to have a glass splashback installed in their kitchen behind their cookers and hobs. Having a splashback installed here makes cleaning after cooking much easier – particularly if you’ve spilt something against the wall. At the same time, splash backs protects the walls of your kitchen from the steam generated from boiling hot water. This steam can often lead to moisture being trapped in the wall. Moisture, in turn, can lead to the growth of mould and fungus, which can have serious ramifications on your health in the long term. In the short term, moisture also encourages germs and viruses to grow – which you definitely don’t want in the kitchen!


In much the same way splashbacks protect the walls of your kitchen, a splashback can protect the walls of your bathroom from moisture generated from hot showers. Bathrooms are often poorly ventilated in comparison to kitchens – which often feature several doors and windows. In comparison, it’s not uncommon for shower rooms to feature only a single door and window. At the same time, showering generates more steam than cooking.

As was previously mentioned, splashbacks provide a layer of protection to whatever is behind it. In our previous examples, this layer has been used to keep moisture away from walls. However, in certain cases, this layer of protection can be used to keep other things safe. 

For example, if you have artwork in your home, you can use a splashback to protect it. This makes splashbacks a fantastic addition to businesses, museums or anywhere you want to protect artwork that hasn’t been classically framed. At the same time, splashbacks give your space a unique, modern style that is hard to replicate using traditional frames.
