Alternative Ideas to Tiles in Your Kitchen

Milano Elements & Contour

Think outside the box and consider an exciting alternative to tiles that creates a unique aesthetic for kitchens of any style whether it’s ultra-modern, calming county or a stripped back industrial look.

It’s an exciting market for kitchen wall coverings, as technology has enabled retailers to offer much more three dimensional and seamless looking wall coverings that look simply picture perfect. Think marbles, concretes, bricks, metallics and glossy blacks and whites – the opportunities are endless!

Splashbacks are not only practical to help protect your walls from any unruly cooking, by they also prevent steam and heat from damaging the wall behind. They’re useful behind areas that are frequently used such as dining and seating zones and appliances such as microwaves, ovens and sinks, as well as designed as an extension of your worktop seamlessly flowing up the wall.

A modern and affordable alternative to traditional tiling is Tek Wall. It offers a flawless, seamless look and comes in a variety of sizes and colours to complement or contrast with worktops.

It’s much more hygienic too, as its smooth aesthetic means that dirt and germs doesn’t linger in nooks and crannies and you can simply wipe it clean with one quick swoop.

Sleek Industrial Walls

If you’re creating an earthy industrial design and looking for a splashback on a budget, how about considering using faux materials?

Wren Kitchens has a variety of industrial themed Tek Wall options such as washed concrete, storm slate and stainless steel. Not only is it easy and quick to fit compared to tiles, but it creates a much more impactful look at less expense!

Mesmerising Marbles

For a dreamy farmhouse style Wren advises using one of its marble style Tek Wall options such as Calacatta Cloud which has a calming cream background with flowing grey veining. It would look simply at home in the alcove of a range cooker or even as a feature wall for a dining area.

Coat it in Copper

For a ‘wow’ statement why not add a touch of copper to your walls with Wren’s Copper Slate Tek Wall.

Its natural, swirling atmospheric tones offers a much more three-dimensional pleasing look compared to flat and bright copper walling. It looks and feels premium, but it doesn’t have the price tag to match!
