STATEMENT / SPLASHBACKS

statement

Picking a splashback for your kitchen can be a daunting task however it is also an opportunity to add some colour and character to your space. Being such a large surface, you want to ensure it flows with the rest of the home and matches any benchtops or fixtures.

WINDOW 

Window splashbacks have become incredibly popular, drawing natural outdoor light into small or large spaces. Having a view as a key feature and not just a fashion statement, means they won’t date. This glass splashback in Hyde Park attracted some serious attention…

TILED 

Tiled splashbacks are extremely popular, especially with a brick or herringbone style. They add texture and a detailed design can add some definite ‘wow factor’. Add contrasting colours like this home in Erindale:

3 Lock Avenue, Erindale

PRINTED GLASS 

Printed glass is an effective way to introduce some personality to your kitchen and create a focal point in the room. From geometric patterns to bold colours, the choice is all yours, just be mindful that they will date a little faster than other selections.

LED 

Having LED lights embedded behind glass can change the mood of the room and you have the ability to actually change the colour of the splashback as you wish. This is an inexpensive option to enhance the look of your entire kitchen.

ALUMINIUM 

Aluminium  splashbacks have a various range of exciting patterns and designs. You can choose from a wide range of designer colours while others have fun patterns. For a 3D effect, choose a stamped pattern in a traditional or modern design.
