How to Buy Splashbacks

So your thinking of buying a splashback. Follow our guide below to make the process easy.

  1. What type of splashback do you want?

With a choice of Stainless steel or glass, which is best for you?

If your on a budget then stainless steel is a cheaper option. If you are looking for some colour then you will want glass.

Stainless steel splash backs come in two types, economy or luxury to suit your budget and the appearance you are trying to achieve.

Glass splashbacks are available in a wide range of colours so you can really make the splashback fit into your kitchen. Glass is also easier to clean.

     2.  Measuring for the splashback.

Use a good quality tape measure to measure the size of splashback that you require. It is safest to deduct 2mm from your measurements to make sure the splashback will not be too tight a fit.

Please note:- Please buy a good quality tape measure such as a Stanley. Cheap tape measures from 'pound' stores and dressmaking tapes can be inaccuarate and may result in you having a splashback which doesn't fit!

If you have two pieces of glass meeting in the corner then it is best to measure for one to go to the corner and one to touch against it. i.e deduct 7mm from the thickness of one of the pieces.

If you need socket holes or notches then carefully measure their location.

If you need a curved splashback for a hood then we will require a template to be supplied in 3mm hardboard or wood. 

Please remember to double check your measurements!

      4.   Fitting splashbacks.

Splash backs can be either glued or screwed in place.

Stainless Steel 

First ensure the wall is clean, dry and dust free. Use a general purpose DIY adhesive to put lines all over the back of the splashback at about 50mm spacing. Carefully manouver the splashback  into position and then prop heavy objects against it such as books so it cannot move. After about 1 hours it will be secure but allow 24 hours for it to gain maximum strength.

If you wish to screw them then you will need holes. Use suitable plugs in the wall and screw in place with the mirror screws supplied.

 

Glass

The prefered method is to glue the glass in place with a neutral cure silicone sealant which we supply with the glass splashbacks.

First ensure the wall is clean, dry and dust free. Put lines of silicone all over the back of the splash back and then push into place. Carefully manouver the glass into position and then prop heavy objects against it such as books so it cannot move. After about 2 hours it will be secure. Allow 24 hours before its fully set.

If you wish to screw them then you will need holes. Use suitable plugs in the wall and screw in place with the mirror screws supplied.
