Splashbacks are becoming very popular in Perth homes today as more and more homeowners discover how hygienic and practical they are, however there are some very real safety guidelines and regulations that need to be followed when it comes to the distance between splashbacks and gas cooktops.
It is very important to understand that glass splashbacks are toughened glass built to a code of heat resistance, they are not a “heat shield” as some people may assume and therefore it is absolutely paramount that the installation of any glass splashback behind the kitchen cook top is compliant with the Australia/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1288, and should be built from toughened glass.
Hygienic Glass Splashbacks Perth Are The Preferred Choice In Modern Homes
When it comes to protecting the walls behind our stovetops or the sink area in our kitchen at home, glass splashbacks have a number of advantages over tiles.
In our bathroom at home, it is so much easier to keep a full height glass splashback in the shower as well as around the bath and vanity.
Installing a glass splashback in the home is becoming the preferred choice by many people and for very good reasons.
Glass splashbacks are very attractive as well as being far more hygienic and easier to clean than other options including wooden cladding or ceramic tiles.
Many of the accidents that can happen in the home are easily avoidable with some due diligence and common sense, especially in the bathroom.
We all know that it is important to protect small children from the nasties that can be found in the bathroom cabinet and therefore we can choose to put childproof safety locks on those cabinet doors.
The wet and slippery bathroom floors can be addressed by using non slip tiling and quality rubber backed bathmats.
Power points need to be well away from the sink and bathtub to avoid the possibility of an electrical appliance falling into water and as an extra precaution, it is also a good idea to remove the appliance from the power outlet after use, and put it away.
Living here in Australia, we are able to enjoy a healthy outdoor lifestyle due to the beautiful climate.
Many families in WA will be enjoying their weekends and holidays at the beach, on the river or at home in their swimming pool.
A vast majority of homes in Western Australia have backyard swimming pools and accordingly there are strict rules in place as to how these pools are kept safe in regards to the safety of children.

A little smoke and mirror magic can manipulate and decorate your wall space to create the illusion of a bigger area by bringing in extra light.
Well placed wall mirrors can change the look of a room by effectively doubling the light or even the space itself.
Be Smart When You Position Your Mirrors Perth
By placing a wall mirror opposite a window , not only do you bring more light into your space but you also bring in the outdoor views as well, of course make sure the view is worth bringing inside.
Be clever with your mirror placement, make sure that the reflection is something worth being looked at.
Sometimes a mirror is placed where it reflects the laundry or the powder room, this is not a good look.

Mirrors will highlight other features and fittings, therefore enhancing the beauty of your room.
An entry statement is always enhanced with an attractive mirror.
The mirror in and entry serves for a quick peek at how we look before we open the front door to a visitor as well as creating the feeling of space in a smaller area.
An attractive and popular statement in a small area is a slimline hall table with fresh flowers and maybe a discreet lamp for the evenings.

We all love our swimming pools in the summertime. With the heat of our Australian summers, is it any wonder that the swimming pool is a must in most Aussie backyards.
The pool fencing however is another story.
Some of us find that pool fences are quite ugly and actually detract from the views by hiding the beautiful pool area.
