Over the past couple of years the number of online and offline stores selling kitchen splashbacks in Perth have more than doubled. However, The vast majority of these stores do not sell or offer customization options. That said in some cases it is a good idea to spend a bit extra and get a glass, aluminum or granite splashback custom made.

But getting one made can be tricky and there are many cases where people who have opted for a custom made splashback were not happy with the results. So, it goes without saying that you need to start with doing lots of research prior to buying the right splashback. It would also be a good idea to speak with an interior designer who should help by giving you a few ideas and provide you with customization options.

Decide on the material first

Even though glass splashbacks followed by stainless steel are the most popular in the world today, the fact remains that there are many more exotic materials to choose from. Granite for instance should be considered because it’s extremely durable and can withstand lots of wear and tear. You will not be bothered by streaks or cracks when you have a granite splashback.

The same goes for a thick stainless steel splashback, stainless steel can be easily customized to fit any shaped kitchen but you cannot play around with the color much since its pretty much silver so it’s only a good option if silver is your color of choice. Visit a few stores selling splashbacks and take a look at all the various types they have to get an idea of what will work best for your kitchen.

Once you decide on the material that will work best for your home or kitchen environment you can then go one step further towards deciding if you need it to have it custom made.

Measure the area you want covered

The next step to getting customized or custom made splashbacks is to measure the area you want to cover in the kitchen. Ideally, you will want to cover the entire work area i.e. where your burners are located right down to where you wash your dishes. This can be a rather large area to cover and at times you may need two and not one single piece to cover both sides.

Make sure to measure the area in feet and convert to inches just in case. This measurement can then be used to find out what options you have available.

Get quotes

In order to ensure that you are getting the best price it is important that you contact businesses that provide custom made splashbacks for quotes. The quote at this point with the data available will only be based on the size and material of the splashback. However, if you require things like holes drilled for lighting, socket boards and other items then make sure to mention that when applying for a quote.

The important thing to keep in mind is that the more customization you opt for i.e. socket boards and holes the more it will end up costing you. If you want to save money customization should be kept to a minimum.

Make sure to apply for a quote at a couple of different leading vendors. Most vendors will get back to you within a few business days. If you want to get a glass splashback make sure to mention the thickness of the glass you need. Generally speaking glass kitchen splashbacks are around 6mm to 7mm thick, you can always order a thicker one if that is what you need.

Also the color may affect your quote too so make sure that you decide on that too by speaking to a professional interior designer as mentioned above.

Get it professionally installed

When you buy customized kitchen splashbacks in Perth there is a good chance that you’ve already spent a few hundred dollars on everything. Taking the risk of installing it yourself incorrectly is not a good idea. This is why leading splashback sellers like Australia based A Splash of Glass suggests that people get their splashbacks professionally installed so that they last longer on the whole.
