The Glassmith Wales are transforming local homes with their stunning splashbacks. We spoke to owner Dez Foster about how glass is proving to be the king of kitchens
Homeowners around Cardiff are discovering that glass is adding a dazzling touch of class to their kitchens and bathrooms.
Dez Foster, owner of Glassmith Wales, says that glass is becoming a popular feature in kitchens and bathrooms for both splashbacks, wallcoverings and worktops – and for more than one reason.
“Apart from the fact that they look absolutely fantastic when installed, there are other great reasons why glass is becoming the product of choice.
“Granite and tile surfaces allow mould, bacteria, and mildew to thrive. Glass on the other hand, is naturally resistant to bacteria and water, promising a safe and hygienic environment for you and your family.”
As well as the hygiene benefits of using glass in your house, Dez also highlights the practicalities of using glass in the family home.
“Food splashes in the kitchen can be cleaned up effortlessly; likewise soapy tide marks and toothpaste smears can be wiped away easily in the bathroom,” he adds.
Unlike tiles, glass does away with annoying grout lines that need to be repeatedly cleaned and maintained. Glass offers a continuous smooth surface with the ability to cover up to 3.6m lengths in one piece.
“You can let your imagination run wild with colour and can even have images, patterns or texture added to the glass,” says Dez.
“Made of toughened glass, the splashbacks are five times more resistant than any other splashback material, which is great news when it’s being used around a heat source, or with heavy pots and pans.
“Their resistance to moisture is also a big bonus when being used in the bathroom. They make great splashbacks for the sink or fantastic shower panels,” says Dez.
Dez is particularly proud of the products he and his team are installing in homes across Cardiff:
“Having worked installing bespoke kitchens for twenty years, it became obvious that there was a gap in the market for people wanting to spruce up their kitchens without having to spend a small fortune on renewing the whole room. I realised that glass created a fantastic feature and could be installed seamlessly into existing kitchens.
“I knew that I could help people fall in love with their kitchens again. Starting off surveying and installing myself, I now employ a small team, all based locally, and my wife also works alongside us, whilst caring for our five young children.
“We are a family business, taking pride in customer service, helping our clients achieve the feature they’re looking for whilst sticking to their budget and providing an exquisite finish.”
And you don’t have to take Dez’s word for it either. The Glassmith Wales are consistently rated ‘excellent’ on Trustpilot, the trusted review platform that provides genuine feedback on local businesses.
A recent customer reviewed The Glassmith Wales on Trustpilot, saying:
“We are so happy with our mirrored splashback, it has totally transformed our kitchen and we have received so many compliments! We would 100% recommend, as the service has been amazing!”
The business has gone from strength to strength since its launch, and Dez hopes to be given the opportunity to showcase his team’s craftsmanship in more homes across Cardiff.
“Since founding the business, we have diversified into installing glass worktops, bespoke glass shower enclosures, glass balustrades and even glass partitioning,” says Dez.
“Glass splashbacks are often the stand-out feature in a kitchen and are real conversation starters.
“Whether our customers fancy a flat colour, a tinted mirror, a textured finish or even an image printed on the glass, they can let their creative streak go wherever it takes them – and we’ll happily run alongside them. So, whether we’re revitalising an existing kitchen or helping finish off a kitchen re-fit, we handle both our glass and our customers with care.
“All-in-all, glass, with its natural resistance to almost anything and its incredible strength, will offer superb, long-lasting protection for your home,” adds Dez.
