To finish off the look of your kitchen and protect the walls from damage consider installing a backsplash. Backsplashes are placed on the wall between the countertop and wall cabinets. Any number of surfaces can be used from: slate, marble, tile, wood, beadboard, brick, recycled materials and, last but not least, GLASS!
Glass is great choice for a backsplash because of its durability and ease of cleaning. It is as strong as any natural stone and is scratch and stain resistant. The surface of glass is non-porous, hygienic, and does not require sealants. A simple glass cleaner is all it takes to wipe away dirt. Edges can be back lit with LED lights to produce an illuminating glow that only glass can create.
Not only is glass easy to care for, it offers limitless design options. Glass can be painted, frosted, carved, textured or cast into any shape or form. Glass can be left translucent to reflect natural light, frosted for a touch of privacy, tinted for a soft finish or painted with opaque colors.
The surface of glass can be impressed with unlimited textures or patterns making it totally customizable. No matter what style you have, traditional or ultra-contemporary, glass can be designed to fit you décor.
Morrison Showroom Backsplash
Dan Byler, showroom manager, poses in their remodeled kitchen showroom. The kitchen features zebra wood cabinetry.
The backsplash contains seven panels created in the “Zen” texture and four solid textured panels. The glass is kiln cast with a raised texture and thin lines that look like raked sand. The Zen glass backsplash is easy to clean, does not show fingerprints and looks good clear or painted.
Joe Price, co-owner of Coyote Glass, installs the backsplash. Joe is always hard at work!
The second Coyote Glass kitchen backsplash in the Morrison Austin showroom is the Silver Blue Canyon. This smaller backsplash was created using one of our top designs and custom colors. The glass is handcarved and back painted with silver metal inlay.
