If you can’t decide whether you want an industrial or modern kitchen, you can just do both. To achieve both, you can get a sleek backsplash like a gray glass panel and combine it with gray cabinets topped with black countertops. This way, you capture a cohesive look. To complement it, you can benefit from stainless steel appliances, some metallic accents, and floor tiles in light shades. Contrasting them, the exposed red brick walls provide a nice textural backdrop with a rustic flair.
Glass Sheet Backsplash
A glass sheet backsplash is another material growing in popularity thanks to its easy-to-clean nature, durability, and unmatchable chic look. Providing a hygienic and solid surface, a glass sheet backsplash also illuminates the space, letting light bounce off the backsplash and helping even light distribution throughout the kitchen. That’s why small and windowless dark kitchens use it popularly to encourage the space to feel more spacious and brighter. Plus, as it is only a sheet, you won’t have to worry about grout cleaning anymore, which is without a doubt one of the favored aspects of these glass sheets.
Sleek and Elegant Appeal of Glass Sheets
Apart from those, you can have a glass sheet frosted, kept crystal clear, or back-painted to enrich its aesthetic value. But in all versions, it offers a sleek and stylish look that goes well in modern and contemporary kitchens. You can combine them with high-gloss or matte finish cabinets to bring contrast or emphasize the shimmery character of the design. Plus, you don’t even have to use it alone. You can combine it with already installed backsplashes to offer a new sleek dimension and protection. Assuming that you have already a wallpaper that you can’t give up on, you can cover it with a matte finish glass sheet backsplash which will supply the wall with unparalleled quality of protection. This way, you will have an amazing pair of wallpaper and glass.
In this blog, we compiled a list of 30+ design projects that make the glass sheet backsplash the protagonist of the kitchen.

How do you install a glass sheet backsplash?
Glass is an eye-appealing material that upgrades the look of your kitchen effortlessly, which you can apply as a full-height, half-height, or, six-inch-high material. Installing it could be a little bit challenging. But it is still manageable as long as you follow the guidelines carefully.
Let’s start installation;
1) First, start with cleaning the backsplash zone. If needed, use sandpaper to get rid of the bumps on the wall. Don’t apply a glass backsplash to the concrete, brick, or plaster walls as they can damage the glass. Ensure that the wall is painted to provide the perfect backdrop for the backsplash.
2) Then lay the glass sheet on cardboard on the floor. While doing so, wear hand gloves so as not to leave fingerprints on the glass surface.
3) To stick the glass to the wall, you can use a construction adhesive or silicone caulk. As silicone is transparent, it works better with transparent materials like glass. But if you don’t prefer using an adhesive, you can also affix the backsplash with the assistance of screws, which of course, requires predrilled holes in the glass. But it is not suitable for every glass, so you may need to check it with your manufacturer.
4) Apply the caulk by leaving 3-inch gaps. At the top and bottom of the sheet, you can use double-sided tape stripes. Then you are ready to install the sheet on the wall. You may need another person to help you with that.
5) After applying the glass to the wall with adhesive, wait for it to set for at least 72 hours. Then seal the edges with silicone caulk where glass sheets and countertops meet. You can smoothen the silicone with a wet finger. Repeat the process until it is flat and feels even enough.

How to cut a glass sheet backsplash?
To minimize any damage that could happen to the glass backsplash while cutting it, there are a couple of techniques to keep in mind. But which one works best is dependent on the size of the project and the tile itself. First, let’s start with the various tools you can use to cut the glass, which are a wet saw, a bar cutter and a manual scoring wheel.
A wet saw: It is generally used for big surfaces and saves a lot of time, cutting the glass while achieving clean edges. But it may cause uneven breaks.
Bar cutters: They do two jobs, score and cut the tiles, offering practical use.
Manual glass scoring wheels: This one is an inexpensive option that also requires running or grozing pliers. They help you score and snap the tiles.
Before cutting the glass, first, clean it. Ensure that the glass tiles lie on a flat surface. Score the glass with a glass cutter, then snap the glass along the second line. Lastly, smooth out the sharp edges. Also, while cutting it, don’t forget to wear heavy-duty gloves and goggles for your safety.

How to clean a glass sheet backsplash?
Glass backsplashes are one of the easiest to clean, durable, and easy-to-maintain materials. They owe these features to their non-porous nature which provides a seamless and solid surface to clean and maintain. And it even gets easier with glass sheet backsplashes as they are just one panel with no grout lines and no gaps between the tiles. Plus, as they are nonporous, dirt and grease can’t penetrate beneath the surface, which also prevents bacteria growth. But surely, you will have to clean it at some point, and how should you do it?
To clean a glass sheet backsplash, all you need is some water, dish soap, a soft cloth, or a sponge. First, dampen the cloth/sponge add some dish soap or mild detergent, and move the cloth in the same direction so as not to leave watermarks. But if the stains are stubborn and can’t be removed with a mild detergent, you can use vinegar. Just let a few drops of vinegar sit for a few minutes for the vinegar to do its job, then you can wipe the glass.
