Kitchen splashbacks are the icing on the cake of your new kitchen. Tile splashbacks add character and dimension to your new kitchen and come in many different shapes, sizes and colours. Tiles for the splashback are making a comeback with many new and gorgeous tiles from which to choose.
Examples To Inspire You
Tiles haven’t been so popular in recent years, but they are making a come back with many new and creative uses for your splashback. Gone are the days of 10cm x 10cm dull ceramic tiles. Today many unique and beautiful tile choices make your splashback an awe-inspiring feature.
While it is necessary to decide on your kitchen materials several weeks before the kitchen gets installed, you can choose your splashback with cabinets and bench-tops in place. This allows for your ideas to flourish and develop. This also gives you a chance to collect some sample tiles that you can physically hold up and compare with your newly installed kitchen. Having a visual reference makes your choice easy and fun. Here are some examples to help you get inspired along the way.
This kitchen features a gold-leaf mosaic tile splashback. The gold is opulent, the tiles have been expertly laid in a herringbone fashion. It is dramatic and luscious and contrasts elegantly with the dark cabinetry.
This playful kitchen has a strong Danish appeal. Designed by Lewis/Schoeplein architects, the design reflects their affinity for retro-inspired mid-century design. The white bench-top and splashback add visual continuity and make a clean contrast with the timber veneer cabinetry.
Glass tiles subtly add to this vintage/ modern kitchen. Delicate and soft aqua colour sparkles underneath the modern range-hood. Seemingly modern materials combine beautifully with the traditional cabinetry and large windows.
In no way understated or subtle, this splashback design speaks loudly. The striking pattern of these tiles continues, featured in the kickboard.
This featured splashback in mirrored mosaic tiles is only for the daring. The loud design looks stunning in the right environment.
A little less dramatic, these silver mosaic tiles add a touch of class to your kitchen renovation. In any tile design, the grouting is important. For mosaic tiles, match the grout for best results.
For a traditional, country style kitchen, laying tiles diagonally in a herringbone fashion, integrates the tiles to give the kitchen a classic look. These white brick-sized tiles are a lovely feature to this kitchen.
This kitchen is pared down to its basic elements: a bench-top with a sink sitting above, and storage underneath hidden by cloth. This detailed and beautiful tile splashback could not be a better match for this kitchen. Notice how the tile patterns contrast the simplicity of the design.
