The Best Kitchen Splashback Ideas

Photographic Kitchen Splashback

White Lilies Kitchen Splashback Idea

Invented by PimpYourKitchen the photographic kitchen splashback is a truly unique way to style your kitchen. As the options are limitless and every splashback is custom made you can rest assured that no one will have a kitchen quite like yours! They can be as elegant or as fun as you want. What I particularly love about this idea is the possibility of creating a large faux window with a panoramic landscape of your favourite place. It could be a shaded woodland, a sunny seascape, or even an iconic photo of your favourite city.

Mirrored Kitchen Splashback

So simple. So beautiful! And in my opinion one of the best kitchen splashback ideas out there! A kitchen is instantly opened up, feeling larger and brighter with the addition of a mirrored splashback. Particularly effective in all white kitchens with stainless steel appliances. It’s also easier to clean than stainless steel splashbacks. However, proceed with caution. Only choose a mirrored splashback if your kitchen is always immaculately tidy. Any mess will be doubled via your splashback!


Glass Kitchen Splashback

Demand is increasing for glass kitchen splashbacks. Hygienic, easy to clean and available in every colour imaginable, they look sleek with their seamless surface. Companies like 3DKitchens can even add special metallic or sparkled effects and print images directly on the glass. For something a little more DIY, consider painting the wall or hanging wallpaper before covering with toughened glass.

LED Green Glass Kitchen Splashback

Take the glass splashback idea one step further by adding LED backlighting. It can instantly brighten a kitchen lacking in natural light, create atmospheric evening lighting and give it an overall modern look. You could opt to stick to one lighting colour such as white or make it interchangeable to suit your mood or the occasion – a clever way to instantly change the look of your kitchen.

Natural Wood Kitchen Splashback

The designer of this exquisite kitchen made the bold choice to match their splashback with their beautiful wooden worktop. The natural pattern of the wood grain creates a unique piece of artwork that no one else will ever have. When treated with oil its water resistant surface will be easy to wipe over and will ensure its longevity.

Stainless Steel Kitchen Splashback

If tough is what you want then consider the same material commercial kitchens use – stainless steel. You can create a brilliant industrial look for your kitchen with made to measure brushed stainless steel from companies like Linear Kitchen Designs. As beautiful as it is just be aware that it’s easily smudged and marked by fingerprints and watermarks.
