Selecting the perfect splashback for your kitchen

When it comes to renovating your kitchen, the splashback will often be the last thing you think of. And yet, a well designed and considered splashback can make an impact, altering the look and feel of the space — which is why we believe it’s important to get it right.

Splashbacks have come a long way from being merely a protective surface in your kitchen. Now, there are so many options available it can be overwhelming to choose just one. Many times, we see beautiful kitchen designs with a mix of one or more splashback materials which gives an added dimension to the area.

A window splashback is a great way of connecting your kitchen and outdoor spaces, as well as allowing natural light to suffuse the space, eliminating the need for overhead lights during the day.

Meanwhile, tiles are a versatile option to add texture and movement to a kitchen. With countless sizes, shapes, patterns, and colours to choose from, a tiled splashback is an easy and effective way to refresh a tired kitchen or add character to the space.

Another great material to use is painted glass. This is easy to clean, and often used to mute the splashback in order to create a seamless flow. Alternatively, tinted mirrors achieve a similar effect, and are perfect for smaller spaces as they open up the room and create the illusion of more space — and are also available in an array of colours.

If you like the natural look in your kitchen, high-quality timber panels are the way to go. Versatile in design, timber complements both light and dark colour schemes, as well as stone or stone-inspired benchtops.

Speaking of which, stone splashbacks are perfect for marrying with stone benchtops or to create a contrast or focal point in the kitchen. It’s an easy to clean material that can give your kitchen an extra wow factor.

With an abundance of options at your fingertips, why not let one of our professional kitchen designers help you select the perfect splashback for your individual space?
