Back painted glass in a kitchen

If you want to freshen up worn-out living space or move your décor scheme from traditional to transitional, back painted glass is one of your best friends. As its name suggests, this product is clear glass with paint – of your chosen color – applied to the back. A protective coating is layered over the paint, and it’s installed with the bare glass surface facing outward. If you’ve never used back painted glass in your interior décor, it might be time to give it a try!

1. Back-painted glass makes a wonderful backsplash.

Sheets of colored glass make a gorgeous seamless (or nearly seamless) backsplash. Bonus point: there are absolutely no grout lines to scrub, ever. Here are just some of the possibilities:

  • Replace your current kitchen backsplash with back-painted glass for a glimmering surface that modernizes the room and is easy to clean and sanitize.
  • Use glass behind the bathroom sink to glam up your primary bathroom.
  • Colored glass is the perfect backdrop for a wet bar. If you choose white or another light color, it also doubles as a marker board which you can decorate with drawings and quotes.

You can add a back-painted glass backsplash without worrying about whether it will match the room’s other colors. Besides white, gray, and black, ABC Glass & Mirror can special order glass in the custom color-matched shade you desire.

2. A glass whiteboard is perfect for a home office or study room.

White back-painted glass makes a beautiful marker board. It’s easy to write on with normal dry erase markers and it erases cleanly without ghosting. In a home office, a glass board gives you somewhere to write reminders, schedules, and to-do lists. If your children are learning at home, it’s a great tool for demonstrating how to do a math problem, writing down assignment due dates, and so forth. Even if your kids only do homework at home, a whiteboard can function as a sort of weekly planner that’s readily visible. When not in use a glass marker board is not an eyesore but functions as a modern, minimalist wall hanging. 

3. Reconfiguring your living space is easy with glass partition walls.

Glass partitions made of back painted glass are visually stunning and ideal for creating a private space within a larger room:

  • Keeping the commode out of sight is one way to make a bathroom more luxurious. A colored glass screen gives you a separate toilet room, and this type of partition coordinates beautifully with glass shower doors.
  • In recent times, many have started working from home and setting up office spaces in living rooms, bedrooms, and so on. Minimize distractions and make your workspace more inviting with a partition made of back-painted, clear, frosted, patterned, tinted, or Crittall style glass.
  • Home gyms are also cropping up in houses large and small. If you want to keep your treadmill out of sight or have a more private exercise space, a colored glass room divider is a stylish option.
