With her impeccable sense of style and attention to detail, Grace reveals the secrets behind choosing the perfect splashback materialsthat define kitchen design trends.
Splashbacks are a crucial element in any kitchen, protecting walls from spills and splatters while adding a touch of style to the space. With a plethora of materials available, it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect splashback for your kitchen. In this blog, we’ll explore three popular splashback materials. Let’s go through each of them to help you make an informed decision for your kitchen renovation.
Handmade tiles for your splashback are a compelling choice due to their unique and artistic appeal. With endless customisation options in colours, shapes, and patterns, they offer a personalised touch that can complement your kitchen style perfectly.
The latest trend in kitchen design is the emergence of the “Countersplash”. This style involves using the same slab material for both the benchtop and splashback, creating a seamless and visually appealing aesthetic. Not only does it look stunning, but it also simplifies cleanup after cooking splatters, making it a practical choice for busy kitchens.
Longevity ~ Stone splashbacks have exceptional durability, standing the test of time and maintaining their beauty for many years with proper care.
Versatility ~ Stone splashbacks come in various colours and patterns, offering versatile options to suit different kitchen styles and themes.
Eco-Friendly Options ~ We are pleased to offer an innovative solution for kitchen renovations. With our innovative 7mm stone, we can resurface virtually any splashback material. Choose from our two stone ranges, Stone or Marble, to enhance your kitchen with a luxurious and high-end appearance. This concept saves time, minimises mess, reduces cost, labour and waste, making it an eco-friendly choice.
Seamless Appearance ~ Depending on the stone’s size and installation, you can achieve a seamless and continuous look, adding to the visual appeal of your kitchen
Low Maintenance ~ Our stone surfaces require no grout, making cleaning and maintenance a breeze with simple regular wiping. Unlike granite and marble, our stone surfaces never require resealing, ensuring a maintenance-free kitchen experience!
Cons – None!
A window splashback is an exceptional choice for bringing the outdoors into your kitchen. It allows you to embrace the seamless blend of nature and contemporary design.
Keep in mind it is now a regulation to install a metal shroud behind gas cooktops, regardless of the splashback material. The shroud is a non-combustible panel placed to prevent fire hazards and heat-related damage to the splashback and nearby surfaces. By creating a safe distance from gas flames, it directs heat away from sensitive areas, ensuring kitchen safety and longevity. Complying with this regulation is crucial for a secure cooking environment, allowing homeowners to confidently enjoy any splashback material near their gas cooktops.
Each splashback material comes with its own set of advantages and sometimes drawbacks. Consider your budget, style preferences, and practical needs when choosing the perfect splashback for your kitchen. Whether you opt for the artistic flair of handmade tiles, the timeless beauty of stone, or the natural illumination of windows, a well-chosen splashback will undoubtedly transform the heart of your home and enhance your time spent in the kitchen.
