Colour Glass Splashbacks

Combining Textures

With their cool, hard and smooth surfaces, glass and stone are natural complementary partners giving a clean, hygenic feel to the bathroom or workspace. Combining a colour in the kitchen with matching cabinets enables you to emphasise timber elements such as light wood flooring.


Emphasizes Lighting

Glass is a natural conductor for light, so when a feature LED strip or spot is cast onto the glass, a cool effect is created. The colour is illuminated and light is diffused across a larger area. The effect is even more pronounced with metallics.


Easy to Keep Clean

Toughened glass is extremely easy to clean. With no joins and a smooth texture, most smears and marks will simply wipe right off with a spray of ordinary glass cleaner.



Selecting a Colour

Consistent Themes - Your choice of cabinets and benchtop will naturally steer you in the direction of some colours over others. You can choose to stay neautral and go with soft, similar or complementary shades. However if the kitchen feels like it is lacking in a feature, go ahead and inject some colour. Brighter, saturated colours work especially well in white kitchens or dark kitchens lacking contrast.
Room Lighting - The lighting in the room plays a big part in colour selection. A dark kitchen may not suit a dark metallic or black as it will close the space in. In small kitchens we generally suggest a lighter colour (or a mirror). Feature LEDS and spot lighting can really show off a colour on the glass, so keep lighting in mind (even at night) when making your selection.
Colour Ranges - We have a range of colour samples from our own range already painted to glass and available to browse or collect from our showroom. We suggest selecting from Resene or Dulux ranges for custom colours as we have matched many colours from these in the past and keep formulas handy.
Colour Matching - We use ultra clear glass for our splashbacks so can match any standard solid colour you bring in to us. We can make up colour samples on request and provide this service for free (for confirmation) if we are doing the job. Keep in mind the 'whitest' whites may take a slightly dulled look with refraction through the glass medium in some lighting situations.

Additional Information

Measure / Quote

We offer a free, no obligation measure and quote in the Greater Auckland region. Contact us for a quote over the phone, via email, or to arrange to meet a consultant on site. If you havent already chosen your colour or design, our consultant will have some samples with them and is experienced to help you in the selection process. On acceptance of a quote we will conduct a final measure.


The wall must be generally flat, but not necessarily stopped as the paint or silvering we use is well covered, fully opaque and free of read through. Our consultant can make recommendations on site if anything is necessary. All cupboards benchtops and rangehoods should be installed and in position for a final measure. The glass splashback is typically the last thing to be installed in the kitchen, but you can get the quote and colour selection process under way well before the final measure stage. If its necessary, with a little co-ordinated planning, rangehoods can go up after the final installation (but not after the final measure and before install).

Glass Types

The glass types (shown above) are all 5mm toughened safety glass with flat polished (chamfered) edges.

Shapes and Cut Outs

Internal holes are cut and power points sit on top of the glass as they would the wall (they overlap so there is no gap or silicon around the edge of them). Glass can be cut with curves, corners, notches or shapes provided it can go through the toughening process. Typical things that may be an issue in the toughening process are the distance of internal holes to the edge of the glass (less than 25mm to the edge), and very thin shapes that create weak points. We work around this by splitting the glass into multiple pieces and measuring for the joins to be hardly noticeable, or blend in with the kitchen design.


We will call and arrange a time to fit the glass. The installation generally takes 1-2 hours depending on the size of the job. We glue fix splashbacks to the wall and neatly silicon seal the edges. Occasionally it may involve coordination with a plumber if taps require removal, or an electrician if the installation is effected by oven wiring.

Supply / Deliver

We can supply and deliver any of our splashback glass to customers in the Auckland region. Be careful to provide us with the exact, accurate measurements. Once a panel has been toughened for a splashback, it cannot be trimmed. As a guideline, we generally allow a 3mm tolerance on the width and height - 1.5mm either side.


We provide a warranty of 10 years on workmanship and for delamination of paint. For details and conditions visit our splashback warranty page.
