Hey everyone! My partner and I are currently building our first home with HomeGroup WA. We have just done our prestart, where we came across our first hiccup.
We have put a window where our glass splashback should be in or kitchen, but have found out the space around it, is quite larger than what we first thought.
Our options is either put glass around which would mean 4 separate pieces. Obviously meaning you will see 4 cuts of the glass (not ideal) Or we put tiles around. We have put white subway tiles in our scullery and laundry but I’m not sure whether this will go with our kitchen.
Has anyone else had this issue, and if so what did you do?
I have attached copies of our plans, what our kitchen colours are and some of the designs I have found.
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi, we considered going with a window within the splash back, and checked out a couple of displays etc. Personally I would use tiles around the window and also tile the reveals. The feature after all is the window itself, so not sure if the glass surrounds would add that much extra visual appeal?
Anything you can save on the cosmetic upgrades is great to instead put into performance & comfort such as double glazed windows, better insulation, roof sarking etc.
Being your first build, I would also consider paying for independent inspections as the key slab and frame stages.
Good luck with your build. We’re onto our second and it can be fun but also painful at times!

It’s a good sign if Metricon are confident enough to show your house to others. The workmanship on my house was so poor they never would have done this!
