Painted Glass Backsplashes: The Latest Interior Design Trend

Custom painted glass backsplashes are just the thing if you want to elevate your home décor. This unique design element creates a unique, dramatic look, creating a focal point and enhancing the design of your home.

Modern, stylish, creative and unique – painted backsplashes offer everything you need in an interior update. And, custom glass is just as functional as it is fashionable, protecting your walls and making cleanup a cinch.

Let’s look at little deeper into this exciting home design trend.

Why Painted Glass Backsplashes Are the “Next Big Thing”

Anyone can visit the local big box or home improvement store and order a backsplash – and many homeowners do exactly that. The problem is that only so many choices are available. This means that many Utah homeowners end up with the same boring backsplashes.

Painted backsplashes, on the other hand, are completely original and not something you’ll see when you visit your neighbors. Custom glass artists can create inspired designs that are perfectly suited to your design tastes and home décor style.

The only limit to this interior design trend is your imagination. Design your own backsplash look, and glass artists can make it a reality.

How are Painted Backsplashes Created?

The technology to fabricate a painted backsplash is simple, yet the results are unique and extremely durable.

Essentially, a custom painted design is applied to the back of a glass panel – not the side that faces outward. So, the image is sealed behind the panel when the backsplash is installed.


Painting the backside of the panel protects the design from being scratched, damaged or worn away. The backsplash can be wiped clean without worry that you’ll be wiping away the custom painted design.

Where Can You Use Painted Glass Backsplashes?

Painted backsplashes are ideal for kitchens and bathrooms, and any room where practicality is as important as personality. But those aren’t the only indoor spaces where custom glass can create a major design impact.

Consider a decorative glass wall as a living room focal point or fireplace accent. You can use a custom backsplash design as a one-of-a-kind touch for a butler’s pantry, wet bar, built-in bookcase or cabinet. You could also use painted custom glass for a tabletop or counter. The possibilities are endless.
