FITTING GLASS SPLASHBACKS YOURSELF
Fitting bespoke shaped glass splashbacks yourself (or by your own fitter), is ideal for less complicated installations.
Some experience and skill is advisable for larger projects involving multiple or complex shaped panels.
1 - Measure Your Kitchen
First you need to measure everywhere you would like to have your glass splashback fitted.
We can only use your measurements when the glass is to be fitted by yourself. Please ensure your measurements are correct as we cannot exchange a splashback if it is incorrectly measured.
We advise to make a 2mm reduction from each side of any panel. Positions of all socket cut-outs and notches need to be accurately annotated.
We accept both hand & digital drawings, as well as templates from materials such as Correx or MDF.
2 - Choosing Your Colour
To agreed a price you will need to choose what finish you would like your glass splashback to be.
Plain colours are our best value finishes, with more exclusive collections increasing in price.
To determine what colour would look best in your kitchen, we recommend ordering a sample from any of our collections. these give the best indication of final colour in your kitchen’s layout & lighting.
3 - Making your Order
Once your order price & specification is agreed, you will pay for the order in full.
Different designs have varied curing periods. All finishes are applied to the back of your glass by hand in our workshop. These are bespoke crafted products, these lengthy processes are needed to craft some of our most unique and exclusive designs.
We will endeavour to ensure your splashback is completed quickly within the timescale agreed at time of sale.
