  3. An obvious one – they protect your wall and keep your kitchen beautifully clean. This goes for all backsplashes but it’s true nonetheless. Glass is also a lot easier to clean than stone or wallpaper. 


It’s important to look at the cons of having glass splashback, so here are a few disadvantages.
