How do Glass Splashbacks Compare to DecoSplash®?

Glass splashbacks have been a popular choice for kitchens for a long time, however they are not always the ideal solution for every kitchen or home. Glass splashbacks can take a long time to produce to meet exact specifications and measurements, and require specialised skills to install to ensure no breakages or cracks.

DecoSplash® aluminium splashbacks can offer the beautiful look of glass splashback colours and designs – but with added benefits and reduced hassle. Read more to see how aluminium splashbacks compare to traditional glass options.


Made from lightweight aluminium, DecoSplash® is quick and easy to install, and can be installed over existing tiles or splashbacks. Create your dream kitchen in rapid time, with short lead times. Unlike glass, which is heavy and can require specialised installation, DecoSplash® is DIY friendly – no experience needed to install!

No Cracking and Chipping

Glass splashbacks can crack with harsh impact, affecting the design and durability of your kitchen splashback. DecoSplash®, however, is made from durable aluminium and will not crack, chip or peel, preserving your stunning splashback design for years to come.

Long lasting images

The beautiful designs found on glass are often printed or painted behind the glass. When they are exposed to heat, the image can discolour. With DecoSplash®, the durable powder coat finish will not peel or discolour, leaving you with a long lasting statement piece.

Glass Splashback Alternative

Stove Tops

When glass is placed behind stove tops, it can heat up, creating concentrated ‘hot spots.’ These can damage your beautiful images or patterns, as well as posing a fire risk to any combustible materials behind. DecoSplash® is made from aluminium, which dissipates heat evenly across the surface, and can therefore be used behind gas, electric and convection stove tops safely.

Wide Range of Styles

Glass splashbacks offer a variety of colours and designs – but DecoSplash® offers even more design freedom. Thanks to advanced sublimation technology and a choice of satin, gloss or even chrome finishes, DecoSplash® can recreate realistic tiles or marble, stand out bold patterns or mirror designs or even feature your favourite custom image or photograph.
