It's the perfect finishing touch that adds a sense of neatness and sophistication to your space.
The Colour Selection Process
The color selection process for a new glass splashback involves the consideration of various factors to ensure a cohesive and visually appealing design. Below is a short description outlining some of the key steps:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Measure and 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).
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.
