Splashback Trends show we are leaving subway tiles behind

The appropriate kitchen splashback can make a huge difference in terms of both appearance and functionality.

It's all in the details when it comes to remodelling a kitchen. The minor details have the biggest impact once the larger decisions have been made, such as where to place the cooktop, whether to have one sink or two, and whether to use quartz or natural stone worktops. Both an aesthetic and a practical level are affected by this. The kitchen needs to be both functional and beautiful because it is often the centre of the home and where many of us spend the majority of our time. Details are important.

This is especially true when picking a splashback for the kitchen. It has a purpose in addition to being a striking decorative element, preventing cooking stains from staining the wall.

For some time now subway tiles have been seen everywhere but it’s forecasted that we won’t be seeing as much of this is 2023 and beyond. It’s time for glass to shine. 

Here are some things to consider when choosing your next splashback… 

Go Monochrome

Keep the splashback in theme with the cabinetry or wall colours to make a tonal impact and let the pattern speak for itself. 

Make a Statement

Don't be afraid to contrast your textured glass splashback with the theme of the kitchen. also, Who said our pressed tin pattern needs to be neutral?

Think Outside the Paintbox

Glass definitely doesn’t need to be white to have impact. Why not try jewel tones? Mossy greens and ocean blues are always a favourite.

Play With Patterns

Bold glass choices can add a sense of playfulness to your kitchen. 

Make it an art feature

Luxurious splashbacks can take your open plan living to the next level. Thinking of it as a piece of art will make the space feel more expensive.

Using natural materials 

Reasons to go toughened glass as your natural material of choice:

🤍 Toughened glass splashbacks are highly durable and heat resistant.

🤍 Toughened glass enhances splashback quality and longevity.

🤍 They are the ideal choice to install behind your stove top/hob. It will protect your wall from water, grease and oil splashes.

🤍 Also, because of its non-porous nature, it won’t allow any bacteria to seep in. Hoorah!
