Choosing the perfect kitchen backsplash
There’s plenty to choose from in terms of backsplash materials, yet they all need to be considered in terms of cost, care requirements, and how they complement the rest of your kitchen.
Tiles are available in many colours, styles and patterns, plus various price options. They are also easy to keep clean, even if a little grout work may be required in due time.
Stainless steel is much easier to look after and is ideal for an industrial / minimalist look.
Laminate is the perfect choice if your main concern is budget.
Glass presents various options – it can be barely visible, but can also become the most prominent surface in your whole kitchen if you opt for a coloured or patterned design.
Stone backsplashes certainly make a statement, while mirrored glass and metallics are perfect for protecting and brightening a space.
And for all our DIYers, backsplashes can be installed on your own via panels, tiles, mosaic sheets, wallpaper, wall decals, etc. However, we recommend dialling up a professional if you’re a novice with DIY tasks.
