Kitchen splashbacks used to be all about functionality - protecting wall surfaces from cooking and sink splashes. Nowadays they can be a statement design piece in their own right. Splashbacks are integral to a great kitchen design. Practical and aesthetically pleasing, there is a huge choice out there, available in a variety of materials. Choose tiles for pattern and texture, stainless steel for an industrial look, glass and acrylic which can be digitally printed with photographs, prints, patterns, or artwork. Quartz options can be matched to the worktop or mirrored glass and metallic sheens offer a little more opulence.
This light and airy kitchen below, designed by one of our kitchen designers, highlights how you can create the illusion of a much larger space with a mirrored splashback. The smoked effect just tones the reflection nicely so it is not overpowering in the brightly lit kitchen. Discover more about this particular renovation here.

Marbled splashbacks have been on the radar for a little while and this one below packs a punch. Matching marbled worktops and contrasting patterns on the cabinetry all combine screaming out 'TEXTURE' with a nod to natural industrial materials.
