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