Splashbacks

Splashbacks are an excellent way to inject some personality and colour into your newly renovated kitchen.

Often overlooked, splashbacks are actually an extremely important facet of the kitchen as they protect surfaces from water and heat.

From being used in the kitchen, the bathroom and even the laundry, splashbacks make it easier to keep surfaces clean and hygienic.

Choosing the right splashback

A splashback will be an investment piece in your kitchen, bathroom or laundry that will last if properly cared for. There are some points to consider when choosing the right splashback for your home:

  • Budget - some materials are more expensive than others, and don’t forget about installation costs too.

  • Style - make sure your choice reflects the style and décor of your house.

  • Location - depending on the location, the material you choose must be able to withstand heat, water and stains.
