Home Living : March 27th 2012
MB HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 27, 2012 3 COLOUR GLASS GIVES YOU CLASS Glass is a low-maintenance option. GLASS paneling has emerged as a contemporary alternative to tiles in the kitchen and bath- room. Stegbar says coloured glass panels give the freedom to choose the colour and panel size for the area to be covered, or to opt for a floor-to-ceiling wall installation for a truly distinc- tive look. To get the best out of your coloured glass panels: Consider the resale value of your home when picking colours. Bright colours don't appeal to everyone and may not be on-trend in a few years time. If you love colour but want to stick to neutral tones in your panels, use colour to feature bright kitchen utensils. Choose the style and colour of the kitchen before picking the glass panel colours. It is easier to find a colour for the panel to match the kitchen cabinets than vice versa. KITCHENS INSPIRING SPLASHBACKS A NECESSARY ADDITION TO ANY KITCHEN Splashbacks add character to kitchens. Janita Singh HOMEOWNERS looking for something exciting to add to their kitchens are finding inspi- ration from splashbacks. The splashback is the ma- terial on the wall above the sink, cooktop or any other benchspace that protects the wall from oil, grease, splashes and other messes from daily cooking. A splashback is a necessary addition to any kitchen, not only to protect the kitchen wall, but as a way to add the latest decorative feature. Work out your budget when looking for splashbacks. Part of your budget costings should include installation and regular maintenance. The most common splash- backs are tiles which come in many shapes, styles, patterns and colours. Glass splashbacks are more expensive but in the long run, maintenance is less and the kitchen surface doesn't require that much cleaning. Many people opt for stainless steel which gives a professional vibe to the home kitchen but this is an expensive material and needs appropriate care. Mosaic, mirror and stone are also popular. Timber and laminates are cheaper to install, easier to clean and quite affordable.
