Fresh Splashback Ideas

Splashback are becoming increasingly popular as a fresh feature for kitchens. Installing a splashback allows you to update your kitchen economically, while making a statement, but without having to undergo a complete remodel. Check out a few of our splashback ideas below that you may want to consider…
Mirror glass splashbacks add stunning brilliance and illuminate and magnify the space in which they occupy. They add dimension, depth and volume and have the capacity to enhance your kitchen, so this could be an optimal choice for updating a smaller kitchen. Unlike regular mirrors, the glass used for the splashback is toughened through a rigorous heating and cooling process, but keep in mind if you’re not diligent in cleaning this feature, the dust and grime can quickly diminish the sparkling new look of your splashback.
You can use a marble or marble effect splashback to immediately make your kitchen look premium and grand. This impressive feature, though often pricier, has an impressive impact upon entering the room. It can be a standalone edition or can consist of marble benchtops been continued up the wall for a seamless effect. The only downfall is that marble is prone to staining easily, so it may not be suitable to all lifestyle’s and cooking habits.
For a unique and distinctive effect, you could opt for Arabesque Tiles. The use of geometrical or vegetal designs in a repetition is known as the arabesque style and is the foundation of Moroccan design. Due to the unconventional shape, they can be relatively expensive to purchase and install, but the exotic vibe they can add to your kitchen is priceless.
Add dramatic contrast and depth to your kitchen with a black splashback against white finishes and cabinets. Simplistic and contemporary yet making a bold statement. They are suited to a wide range of taste’s and will match with any home furnishings or decor. This is a fantastic bonus for re-sale value of the property.
On trend, versatile, unique and extremely hygienic, copper splashbacks are becoming more and more popular. A definite benefit is that copper is also antimicrobial, meaning that it kills almost 100% of bacteria that cause healthcare-related illnesses. For those germaphobes and neat freaks this could be your way to achieve the ultimate sanitary kitchen.
You can opt for a plain stainless-steel splashback or stainless-steel tiles for a refined, modern look. This option is ver economical while still having the capacity to transform your kitchen. This style is particularly suited for an industrial style kitchen and is complimented beautifully when paired with stainless steel sinks, light fittings and appliances. Keep in mind the suitability of this option though, as it would look extremely out of place in a classic, traditional or farmhouse kitchen.
These are only a few of our favourites ideas from the endless list of splashback choices. Some typical splashback ideas you often see around new properties include acrylic, clear glass, subway tiles and mosaic tiles. Other unique splashback ideas include mock wood, chalk board and scalloped tiles. There’s a splashback option to suit all décor’s, taste’s and budgets.
