What goes on the wall above your worktops?
Something needs to. Even with the very best kitchen paints, you don’t want to be wiping down your worktops onto a painted surface. A granite or quartz upstand to match the worktops is a popular choice, with paint above it. Some customers fit high splashbacks to match their worktops, but that can feel a bit too samey, especially with dark worktops. Tiling is always an option, but the grout lines are not always great to clean.

One of the most on trend solutions is the glass splashback. Really long runs can be made with no joins. Rectangular socket cut outs can be easily accommodated. The whole surface is wipeable. It can be bespoke made in any colour you want. And you can even have abstract or photographic designs printed onto the back of the glass.

Glass Splashbacks: our friends at Southern Counties Glass

For some years we have worked with Southern Counties Glass of Horsham, West Sussex, as our regular provider of glass splashbacks. Southern Counties are close to us – just 20 minutes drive away. They are of a similar size as a company, and, like us, have a definite ‘family firm’ feel. They provide glass splashbacks and other related products on a supply-only or fully-templated basis. We like the quality of their work and we like them as people. It is a good relationship!

Southern Counties Glass have both their production facility and their showroom over on a small industrial estate in Foundry Lane, Horsham. If you are interested in the full range of products and colours they have to offer, you could do a lot worse than visit them. That said, we hold a full set of their main splashback colours, all of which are available in  different finishes and degrees of sparkle. Whether you go over to Horsham or deal with everything here, you can be assured of a helpful welcome and attention to your requirements so as to make your dream kitchen a reality.

Like ourselves, a glass company is a big user of samples. Southern Counties has an amazing range of colours ready made. If you need to match to (or contrast with) something you already have in your home, they will be able to help. And the same goes if you are simply looking for something that is just you – that you know will suit your home and your vibe.
Bear in mind that with these products colour choice is only one aspect. With several different sparkle treatments in the paint on the back, and with the option of a satin finish instead of plain/polished on the front, the possible permutations are very wide!

Full colour photography on a glass splashback is one of the most striking innovations at Southern Counties. You can print anything you like onto the back of the glass! It is possible to send in your own digital photos and have them on your splashback.
Of course, for really large prints, you need really high quality images. Most customers who want an image either choose a one of the fine art designs, like Southern Counties Ashley Phillips Collection, or choose a quality photo print from Richard Osbourne. Check out the superb – and calming – woodland scenes just below!
