glass splashbacks are as we know all the rage. But how much do we know of their durability & quality?
How do they measure up, long term, to daily kitchen adtivities ? Does the painted back deteriorate over time? If the sealed edges b/t splashback & benchtop are not perfectly siliconed, what happens to the painted back?

I havent had mine long enough to comment.

I would say make sure it is sealed in the first place.

We had ours at our last home for 7yrs and it looked as good as the day we installed it. We also did it ourself. We cut a template with cardboard then took it to a glazier to cut. We painted it ourselves then installed it ourselves. Saved a bomb doing it this way.
Sorry this is the only photo we have of the kitchen - how sad! 'Twas the day we were leaving the home for the last time.
