A few Ideas for Kitchen Splashbacks

May 23, 2020 | Blog

When it comes to splashbacks there are a few things to consider to find the right balance between functionality and style.

When you coordinate your design elements and architectural features, colours don’t have to match, but they should coordinate. Your splashback doesn’t have to mirror the colour of your countertops, but it should blend, harmonise and support the rest of the features in the room.

Here are a couple of ideas:


Glass splashbacks come in any colour, shape or size.  They add colour, reflection and a new dimension to any room.  Glass splashbacks can help rooms appear larger and brighter by reflecting light.  The best part is they are super easy to keep clean!

Subway tiles

These are an Art Deco Industrial design classic. Subway tiles are popular for kitchen backsplashes for many good reasons: They’re cheap, endlessly versatile and arguably the most timeless option on the planet – no matter what environment they’re in, subway tiles never seem to look dated.

Try experimenting with different colour grouts and layouts, vertical rows, brick, horizontal stacks, herringbone patterns, whatever you go for, this one is a winner! If you are looking for ways to switch things up, then opt for a chevron pattern for an understated but fun twist.

Subway tiles inject a room with so much more dimension than a flat paint, a dark glossy finish goes perfectly with pristine natural stone countertops and crisp white paint.

Tiles offer tons of room for creativity in the kitchen, create stripes of colour to break up the splashback or place under floating shelves for an eye catching statement.


Quartz creates a chic, luxurious, high-end feel, especially when paired with a matching worktop scheme. It lends itself to sleek modern units and effortlessly accompanies more traditional styles too. A stone slab like this would be easy to clean since there isnt any grout to get grimy.

There are lots of choices when it comes to materials; glass, quartz, Dekton, copper, tiles, wood, polished plaster to name a few, and we are more than happy to walk you through some of the most popular styles for some dream kitchen inspiration!

Have a great weekend.
