Bathrooms are ideal for back painted glass backsplash
Without a doubt, the bathroomis the “wettest” room in the house. Unfortunately, bathrooms aren’t always constructed using materials that can stand up to constant exposure to water. One way to preserve the walls that get the most exposure to water is to laminate them with glass. Glass will definitely stand up to water. It’s easy to clean, and it’s more sanitary than porous, painted surfaces like drywall and plaster.
You can create an elegant backsplash by using a thin sheet of back painted glass. The painted side of the glass rests next to the wall, and the unpainted side of the glass becomes the “working” surface. The glass can get wet repeatedly. It stands up to soaps, cleaners and other substances that come in contact with the bathroom walls. Better still, back painted glass will stand up to the humidity. It will look beautiful year after year.
Back painted glass will offer the same advantages and the same performance in the kitchen – arguably the second wettest room in the house. Surfaces in the kitchen need to be cleaned and sanitized regularly. Like the bathroom, the walls in the kitchen are likely to get wet. Unlike the walls in the bathroom, the walls in the kitchen are likely to get splattered with food. Having an easy-to-clean surface that isn’t fazed by cleaners and sanitizers is essential!
In an office setting, back painted glass can help control light and provide privacy. It can also disguise an unpleasant view without completely eliminating transmissible light.
