Splashback style: Which one’s your favourite?

kdc splashbacks

When planning your new designer kitchen there’s one feature you certainly shouldn’t forget: your kitchen splashback. Practical and stylish, the splashback is a great way to add a touch of personality to the heart of the home, while picking up all those inevitable splashes!

Of course, like most features in the home, splashback trends come and go – so in today’s blog we’ll be offering a little bit advice, sharing what your options are for 2015…

Four popular splashback materials for 2015


For a clean and contemporary look opt for glass. The great thing about glass is that is can be suited to any kitchen design or colour scheme.

The single sheet of glass can be painted on the back to reflect the colours used in your kitchen.

Alternatively, you could opt for a contrasting colour to add some visual interest to the room.

For example, in a predominantly white or monochrome kitchen, why not opt for a red or purple splashback to add some cool and contemporary vibrancy to the space.

What’s more, glass is extremely easy to clean, heat resistant and versatile, pleasing those who appreciate the practical things in life.


Whether you opt for single colour or tri colour splashbacks, or you add a touch of art with mosaic tiles, the tile splashback is one of the most popular on the market.

While tile is a common feature in most home designs and can look great, it’s not the most practical.

Grout lines can discolour when coming into contact with oil spits from cooking pans and can be generally hard to clean and maintain.

Stainless steel

For an ultra-modern look, why not opt for stainless steel? Contemporary and stylish, stainless steel will add that real wow-factor to your home.

The material is also really easy to clean; a simple swipe over the surface will do the job. Like glass, stainless steel is also practical, withstanding high temperatures.

Additional benefits include steel’s ability to withstand impact, as well as its durability.

In fact, the life expectancy of stainless steel is nearly 100 years, which means you’ll probably never feel the need to replace it again!


Marble exudes elegance and helps to create a real classic look.  The relaxed and calming texture, pattern and colour palette of marble is great for small kitchens and is incredibly easy to clean.

If you opt for marble, it’s important to make sure the material is honed and sealed, otherwise you will have some difficulties with its maintenance long-term.

If you want to take the marble look one step further, why not get two cuts of the one piece of marble and mirror them from the centre to achieve a butterfly effect?
