Kitchen splashback

Kitchen splashback

People often ask South London kitchen and bathroom fitters, what splashback to use with their brand new kitchen.
Well, there are many types of kitchen splashbacks. It generally depends on type of the kitchen being installed, size of your kitchen and how often is is going to be used.

Let’s take Cottage style kitchen with nice, wooden worktop. Glass, mirror or stainless-steel splash-back would instantly ruin the character of such kitchen.
For this type of kitchen use smaller, metro style tiles or limestone mosaic.  When you going for mosaic don’t go for tiny ones. 50mm by 50mm look the best.

If your kitchen is modern, then glass splashback works best.

It is a bit more expensive then tiles and usually has to be made to measure. Glass splashbacks can be painted any color. Even glass surface really works with flat or glossy units.
If your kitchen is modern, but you don’t use it much, then simple glass or stone up-stand around your worktop will do the trick. Don’t forget to use taller splashback in hob area.

When using tiles as a kitchen splashback, try to use darker grout instead of white. White grout tends to get stained and is difficult to clean.
Another important thing when using tiled kitchen splashback, is sealing. Use grout protector to seal grout, or Natural Stone sealant to seal  limestone and natural stone mosaic. This prolongs life of your grout or tiles, makes cleaning easier and your kitchen splashback will always be in tip top condition.

    I like that you said the best modern splashback is glass. My wife and I are remodeling our kitchen so that we can add some value to our home before we move in the next few years. We will keep your article in mind as we make a plan to update our kitchen.

    My kitchen is being renovated to look much more modern and I think a splashback would really help the look. I want to find a nice material like glass as you suggested. I think the next step we need to take is contacting a professional that is able to do this project for us.
