Picking the Perfect Splash-back

Jul 8, 2022 | News

A kitchen splashback is a sheet of glass, acrylic, stainless steel or tiles attached to the wall to protect and prevent your wall from any spillages, grease stains or water marks. They’re most commonly placed behind your hob or kitchen sink but can be placed anywhere.
A kitchen splashback makes cleaning easier as you don’t have to try and get stains or marks out of a painted or wallpaper wall. There are a variety of kitchen splashbacks that can come in a range of designs and colours from tiled, glass, acrylic and stainless steel. Each type has its own benefits, from different colours to complement your existing interior to being more water resistant.

Here are a few:

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! Our splashback suppliers are able to provide our clients with exciting designs such as mirrored glass, mottled mirrored glass, glass with a print of tiles (so you don’t have to worry about cleaning grout), printed art or landscapes and a huge range of solid colour choices.

Subway tiles
These are an Art Deco Industrial design classic. Subway tiles are a popular choice for kitchen backsplashes for many good reasons. 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 lots 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. 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.

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. If you like the idea of a having a marble worktop, a great idea would be to have your splashback in the same material. This can create a elegant and seamless look to your kitchen design. For a dramatic effect, with Dekton’s marble worktops, you are able to have the vein match from the worktop and then continue up to your splashback.

There are lots of choices when it comes to materials for your kitchen’s splash-back, 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.
