The splashback behind the stove and the sink can be used to add decorative flair to the kitchen. Since the splashback does not take any heavy traffic, glossy and decorated tiles can be used for this purpose. However, the splashback material has to be stain proof and resistant to heat because they have to withstand hot oil spills and the rigours of daily cleaning. A variety of tiles like, porcelain, mosaic, glass, ceramic etc. can be used to design the kitchen splashback. The wide variety of materials available to design the splashback makes it difficult for homeowners to choose the right one. Follow these five tips to make the task simple.
Choose the right material for backsplash depending on the overall theme of the kitchen. Glass, tiles, stainless steel and pressed metal are some of the common materials used for the splashback in the kitchen. If you want to have a traditional look, opt for kitchen splashback tiles mosaic with beautiful patterns. These tiles look lovely in the kitchen. But on the flipside cleaning mosaic tiles is a difficult chore. Glass is a great option, if you have a contemporary theme in the kitchen. Glass is easy to clean and the reflective qualities of glass provide an airy feel.
Choosing the right colour for the splashback improves the aesthetic look of the entire room. Choose the benchtop colour first and select a backsplash that either complements the benchtop or contrasts with it. However, remember to select both benchtop and splashback in similar colour tones to keep the look consistent.
Design your kitchen around a bold splashback
You can design a kitchen around a bold splashback. Choosing featured splashbacks like a 3D printed splashback in glass or a grand painted splashback, will make the kitchen look attractive. However, keep in mind that the other elements in the kitchen like the benchtops, countertops, wall tiles, furniture etc. should complement the featured splashback.
When in doubt, choose the splashback at last
The splashback is one of the last elements to be installed in a kitchen. So take your time and let the other components like the benchtops, cabinets and other accessories be installed. Once all the components are installed, you can choose a splashback that matches with the overall décor. For example, if you want to give your kitchen a traditional ambience, you can choose kitchen splashback tiles mosaic that look classy and stylish.
