Lately, backpainted glass is popping up in more and more designer bathrooms, kitchens and office spaces. There’s good reason for this. It’s a righteous material! Here are five of the top reasons you should seriously consider using it in your next remodel.
1 . It looks flipping amazing!
Check out this kitchen backsplash we recently completed. 1/4″ tempered panels were used and backpainted with Benjamin Moore White to match the surrounding walls. The results speak for themselves. The material and color selection create such a clean and sleek vibe. It’s the perfect compliment to the high-end counter top and appliances.
2 . It’s easy to maintain.
Beyond the aesthetic appeal of backpainted glass, the relative ease of maintenance is probably its greatest selling point. Gone are the grout lines of a tiled backsplash or shower wall. With this material, you’ve got a uniform surface that doesn’t provide water or soap or grease a small lip to settle in and making cleaning a pain. Add a glass surface protectant, like Clearshield, and cleaning becomes even easier. You’ll want to avoid cleaners with astringents though, since they can eat into the paint in back much like they would a mirror’s silvering.
