Splashback Statements in the Kitchen5 min read

Splashbacks in the kitchen are no longer there to just protect the walls from spills and splatters but to create a great focal point within the hub of the home. They are a great way of incorporating design and colour into the space. The worktops are one of the first elements of the kitchen to be noticed as well as a splashback. The splashback can range from bold, bright colourful patterns, to one colour that oozes style.

There are many splashbacks to choose from such as, metallics, a smoked mirror effect to make the room feel larger and welcoming, flowing the quartz worktop up to create a splashback and brick-like tiles have become the fashion again. Brightly coloured toughened glass splashbacks are also a great idea to inject some colour into the space which defines the style with character and looks great in contemporary kitchens.

Natural quartz worktops allow you to flow the pattern/design up the wall to blend the style seamlessly making it look amazing.

Sometimes when preparing for your quartz worktops there might be some off-cuts which can be big enough for your splashback and save you money in the long run.
