Stylish splashbacks are on trend

Splashbacks can play a dual role in your kitchen.

On the one hand, they’re highly practical. Splashbacks are used for protecting walls behind ovens, sinks and worksurfaces. They can withstand water, grease, and prevent steam and heat damage.

On the other hand, they’re a stylish accessory that accent a colour scheme.

What type of splashback works for you?

An increasing variety of materials are used to form splashbacks, ranging from tiles, stone, glass, stainless steel, and laminate.

When choosing a material, consider how it will fit in with your planned design. And how practical it will be for the location. A splashback should be hardwearing, waterproof, and easy to clean.

If it’s going to be used behind a cooker, it will also need to be heatproof. Laminate surfaces are easy to clean, but the element of plastic makes them unsuitable for use near heat.

Splashbacks as an accent colour

Splashbacks are great fun because they can add accent or contrasting colours to a kitchen design.

If you’ve opted for a pale or neutral colour scheme, splashbacks can be used to add touches of bold colour or patterns. You can bring your personality into play by introducing a colour or design theme to the kitchen.

You may choose a colour or pattern that’s an eye-catching contrast to the rest of the room. Or pick a shade that can be matched with your kitchen accessories and textiles.

Tiled splashbacks

Tiled splashbacks are highly practical and versatile. They come in every size, shape and colour and can be fitted as sparingly or as much as required.

If you have distinctive shaped tiles such as chevron, diamond, hexagonal, herringbone or geometric design, you may want to arrange them in small areas as an accent to an existing scheme.

However, if you want to introduce a single block of colour, then you can tile from above the work surface right up to the ceiling.

Glass splashbacks

Glass splashbacks can enhance any colour scheme and create a sophisticated, sleek look. They not only make a style statement, they also reflect light around the kitchen.

Fit glass splashbacks near units that have under-cupboard lighting and wall lights to create a more open, brighter feel. Glass is great for making a small kitchen seem more spacious.

Mosaic splashbacks

If you want to create a highly distinctive look, then try a mosaic tile design. This is ideal if you want to bring in texture as well as decorative detail.

Mosaics bring interest to kitchen walls. There’s an endless choice of sizes, shapes, colours, and patterns. A classic mosaic pattern works in a rural, country style kitchen. Or a more edgy, modern design will stand out in a contemporary kitchen.

Stainless steel splashbacks

Often used in industrial kitchens, stainless steel splashbacks have been making their way into the home.

They can be matched with stainless steel appliances to create an ultra-sleek look. If you’re after industrial chic, then stainless steel provides a cutting-edge look, but with a highly functional purpose.

Stainless steel is strong and practical enough to be used in any area of the kitchen and will protect from water, grease, and heat.
