Glass FAQ

Do you have a showroom display?

Yes, we have a large showroom open six days a week. Opening hours are Mon-Fri 8am to 5pm, Saturday 8am to 1pm, with lots of examples on display.

Do you have samples?

Yes, we have hundreds of large samples in different colours and glass types that are available to be taken home when your job is ready for measurement.

Are you able to help with colour selection?

Yes, at Artform Living we love to help with colour selection. We have colour consultants and glaziers with vast experience who will happily assist.

What are the benefits of glass splashbacks compared to tiles?

Glass splashbacks come in any colour you desire. Tiles are restricted. Glass is easy to clean, hygienic and we cut in large pieces, therefore avoiding too many joints, whilst tiles have many ugly grout joints. Glass and mirror splashbacks have a wonderful reflective quality that opens up any space to light, whilst tiles generally do not. Glass splashbacks can be installed over most surfaces, whilst tiles cannot.

When is the best time to get a measure and quote for splashbacks or shower screens?

We only come to check measurements when the kitchen, bathroom or laundry is completely installed, but we are happy to give a quote from plans or drawings before this time.

Can painted glass splashbacks and painted wall glass be fitted over tiles?

Yes.

Is there a warranty on painted glass splashbacks?

Yes, we carry a 7-year guarantee against fading and delamination, discolouration and faulty workmanship from date of installation.

What glass options are used for splashbacks and shower screens?

Splashbacks can be made from painted glass in both flat and metallic colours, and Starphire and clear glass is used. Mirrors are available in different tints and etched patterned glass. Printed glass with any image you like can also be used.

Are glass splashbacks, shower screens and balustrades made to Australian Safety Standards?

Wherever possible, all glass panels are toughened to become safety glass in accordance with Australian Standard AS 1288 – Glass in Buildings.
