Yes, glass is super-practical in the kitchen. Hygienic, easy to clean, and no maintenance. But what about beauty and style? It turns out, it really exceeds other materials there, too. You can customize it in ways that no other material can handle. Imagine making your kitchen glass backsplash unique;…custom cuts, custom color, made just for your kitchen. And if you add digital printing in addition to backpainting, the options are truly limitless:
British company Enki makes custom looks using digital printing for mass appeal. They’ve standardized sizes of heat strengthened glass for backsplashes (or “splashbacks” as they’re called in Europe) to adapt to the most common needs in the majority of homes. They’re even self-adhesive so you can just peel and stick it over your stove. They offer a wide variety of standard colors, but they also offer some fun patterns for a unique feel that expresses loads of personality:
How cute is that? But it doesn’t have to just be patterns like wallpaper or nature scenes. It can also be one big design like the flag…..
Or, you can even try a big design that elevates your backsplash to fine art. See this one from The Splashback Company in Australia, which uses the artwork of Melbourne-based artist Soula Mantalvanos. Very cool, right?
So now the only question is, if you could design anything for your kitchen, what would it be?
