As a multifunctional room, used for cooking, dining and entertaining, it’s essential that your kitchen is well equipped for any event, and choosing the right splashbacks will play a vital role in creating an outstanding space.

Whether you’re renovating your entire kitchen, or just looking to make a few simple updates, a new splashback is the perfect way to give your room a fresh look and feel.

Here is a few tips on what you should consider if you’re thinking of investing in new splashbacks.


If you want a clean and consistent look in your kitchen, choose colours that are similar to your worktops and cabinets, as this will tie the whole design together. Splashbacks are a great way to accentuate you’re a décor scheme and can be used to add coherency to a design.

Alternately, if you’re looking to make a statement with your splashbacks, opt for patterned tiles or a contrasting colour to add another accent to your décor.

A splashback should be both stylish and functional, it’s there to protect your kitchen walls and work area, as well as complete the look so it needs to be durable, waterproof, non-flammable and easy to clean. Here are some of the most popular option for splashbacks:
