A glass panel splash back is a great way to add a glossy texture to your kitchen, which works great in combination with matte textures.
White subway tiles with a dark grey grout keeps it light but gives a vintage feel to the kitchen. Dark grout is also much more forgiving than light when it comes to food splatters!
Elongated rectangular tiles have a stretching effect and can make your kitchen appear longer. Stick to a light colour scheme to keep the room feeling open.
Bright accent colour splash back
A standout colour strip of splash back through the kitchen complements basic neutrals (greys, whites, blacks) for a fresh look. Tip; keep the ceiling and bench top white to avoid going too dark.
A concrete splash back is another way to create a rustic look in the kitchen. This kitchen contrasts a bare red brick lay with a tessellation of square rock pieces for a natural Spartan effect.
Use your splash back as an excuse for a feature wall in your kitchen! You could use colourful circular tiles to create a fun, interesting look.
Small ceramic tiles
Small ceramic tiles are a classic option, which enable you to create a mosaic pattern with a few choice colours. Shades of grey are on-trend, giving a modern twist to a classic country kitchen.
Recycled wine bottles
The glass used for this splash back is made of recycled wine bottles; a resourceful and cheap idea that still maintains that glassy effect.
Whitewashed wooden paneling
A modern European twist on the rustic wooden look. Pair with blue for a Greek-isle inspired aesthetic.
Natural timber paneling gives a touch of rusticity to the kitchen, paired with a stone bench top. The timber is the feature, but keep the actual splash back small and made of a non-porous material to catch the splatters.
