You say you’ve never heard of a glass backsplash? Well, they’re here, they’re hot, and you can get them in the best colors of the season.
Glass backsplashes are attractive, versatile and unique. Here are a few great things about a backpainted glass backsplash:
- Their solid construction means there are fewer cracks and crevices where dirt can hide (and you have to clean!).
- They wipe up easily with standard glass cleaners, including good old-fashioned vinegar and water.
- Because the paint is applied to the back of the glass, the color can’t come off.
- Since these backsplashes get their color from paint, the sky’s the limit when it comes to color choice!
Many times you’ll see these backsplashes in bright, neon colors as the style goes well with modern kitchens. But you can (literally) choose any color you want to get just the look you want. We’ve got some examples of the seasons’s hottest colors so you can see just how versatile glass can be!
Straight from the color experts at Pantone, this lush melding of green and blue form a cool teal in a trend-setting — not trendy — tone. Sure to be on-pointe for years to come, we think this bold color pairs well with colors on the opposite spectrum: juicy reds and mustardy yellows. Blue and green will complement it, or bright white, like the cabinets shown here, will make it pop. Want the paint color? Try Essential Teal from Behr.
Navy Blue Backsplashes
Is there any color more enduringly stylish than navy blue? We think not. Shown here in Pottery Barn’s Sherwin Williams paint color Naval, this color is so easy to pair with almost any other color. It’s sinful how easy it is to decorate with navy blue. Shown here with gray cabinets and popping cool blue dishes, this color could just as easily pair with bright white cabinets or rich, dark maroon accents. And don’t even get us started with the weathered hardwood floors. You’ll be a design leader with this color in no time.
Golden Yellow Backsplashes
Autumn is marked by rich golden hues, and the backsplash featured above really captures this time of year. Yellow can be hard to take, but here, it’s the star of the show, in a golden shade with a mid-century vibe that works well in kitchens. The less daring among us will go with the white cabinets, but for you more daring souls – you could go with teal, maroon, or navy cabinets. Or think about this: a dark kohl flooring option. Simply stunning. Get the look with Alchemy paint from Sherwin-Williams (on your Dulles Glass kitchen backsplash of course!)
Earthy Orange Backsplashes
The epitome of the season, an earthy, muddied orange can be relevant for the entire year. What’s interesting in this image is the pairing with super fresh green accessories. These contrast with the orange, while the rich brown window treatment are complementary. We also love the marble countertops shown here in this more traditional kitchen, which illustrates that a glass backsplash will work no matter what your style. Get the look with Behr’s Falling Leaves or Farrow & Ball’s Book Room Red.
From modern to traditional, from cool teals and dark navy blues to warm, rich yellows and earthy oranges – you can have the kitchen of your dreams. Picking styles and colors for a kitchen remodel is hard enough – so make a glass backsplash be your easiest choice!
