Matt Glass Splashbacks


Easy to Keep Clean

Our matt glass splashbacks are simple to clean. Every bit as easy as our ‘gloss’ splashbacks. Smears and grease just wipe right off. If you still need more convincing, for a little extra protection, we can treat the glass with our Everclear coatings and (as with our showers) any liquids bead right off.


Limitless Colour Choice

We offer a limitless range of colours in our matt glass splashbacks. Typically anything from Resene, Dulux, Taubmans or Pantone can be matched. Black, grey, charcoal and white are popular colours. Its even fine to play it a little safe with these as they are a cool feature and will still draw the eye in any case.


The Missing Piece

Without being too bold or too boring, a matt splashback can seemlessly blend in with the kitchens design. A great choice if you have plenty of featured elements and just want that easy finishing touch.



Selecting a Colour

Consistent Theme - Your choice of cabinets, benchtops and vanities will naturally steer you in the direction of some colours over others. It is easy with matte splashbacks to stay fairly neautral and go with soft, similar or complementary shades in both light and darker kitchens and bathrooms. This still provides a bit of a feature. Brighter matte colours can have lots of wow factor and look great in white kitchens.
Colour Ranges - We have a handful of matte 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.
Room Lighting - Lighting in the room plays a critical part in colour selection. A dark kitchen or bathroom may not suit a dark metallic or black as it will close the space in so in small kitchens and bathrooms we suggest a light colour. Feature LEDS and spot lighting can gently illuminate frosted glass giving a diffused lighting effect, so keep lighting in mind (even at night) when making your selection.
Colour Matching - We use ultra clear toughened etchlite for our splashbacks so can match most standard solid colours 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.

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 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

Both glass types (clear or ultra-clear) are 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.
