27th October 2023


When creating your dream kitchen or bathroom, practicality is a key consideration – so why choose a floral glass splashback over tiles? A splashback is a particularly essential feature that will provide much needed wall protection from steam, spills and splashes. However, an Emma Britton Splashback is so much more than a practical solution for your home; more, a functional work of art to be enjoyed everyday. In this journal post, we compare the benefits of Emma Britton floral splashbacks versus tiles, a more traditional splashback option.

Installating a Splashback

A simple glass splashback can be easy to install yourself. With correct preparation, splashback installation can take just an hour for a small rectangular shape. A much quicker and easier splashback option than tiles, which are a comparatively tricky and time-consuming DIY.

Emma’s signature floral style is well loved, with her unique glass splashbacks featuring in many homes across the UK and beyond.  All splashbacks are available nationwide, both supply-only or supply-and-install by our team of expert fitters. International export options are also available.
