Who doesn't love designing and updating their home?

It's so nice to give your hallway a lick of paint or some new linoleum in the bathroom. However, there aren't many people lucky enough to be able to replace their entire kitchen on a regular basis. However, just like painting a wall changing your splashback will change the whole look of your kitchen. With this in mind, we've put together our top kitchen splashback ideas.

Tall Splashbacks

As featured in this Elle Decor Article.  Tall splashbacks which cover the entire wall are an emerging new trend.

"Tall backsplashes clad with heavily veined marble such as Arabascatto or Calacatta Oro will be making waves in high-brow design circles." — Katharine Pooley

This sits very well with the new trend to have one wall clear of any cupboards. Instead, there is a feature wall with an interesting covering or feature shelving.

Mirrored Splashbacks

Metallics are still everywhere in home interior design. Whether it's copper handles or brushed chrome taps this trend is here to stay. The use of mirror instead of plain metal is a really interesting way of playing with this trend. The reflective material will create a feeling of space and increased light whilst also keeping in with the trend for metal.


Match your splashback to your appliances or accessories. The introduction of a 'key' colour into an otherwise monochromatic room is a huge trend for kitchens this year. Match your appliances, walls and accessories for a big impact.  We offer a colour-match service which means we can create a splashback in any colour you choose. Colour can really have a huge impact on any room.

Take a look at our blog to find out which colour suits your personality, and the effect of colour on your mood. Colour Can Transform Your Home.

Black is the new grey! This year has seen a return to pure black and white rather than just grey tones. Gloss finishes on walls and cabinets add to the sharp to the crisp look of this trend.

Black feels fresh as crisp as white when used as a predominant or accent colour.  Using black as a splashback will add some drama without fully darkening your kitchen.  You can choose between a super shiny black glass splashback or a matte frosted effect.
