When it comes to your kitchen splash-back, there are a range of choices available. From Corian or other solid surface composite materials, to glass, you can choose to install a solid splash-back area. But tiles will always be a better option, because they bring a range of advantages. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to the advantages of tiled kitchen splash-backs.
Advantages of tiled kitchen splash-backs
Kitchen splash-back areas include the area of wall around the back of the sink, and behind the hob. But in some kitchens, this can also include the space between the worktop and the upper row of cabinets too. So why should you think about tiling in these areas? And what kind of advantages do tiles bring? Well, there are several, including:
- Low maintenance- its easy to keep your tiled splash-back clean and looking great with just a simple wipe of the sponge and any detergent of your choice. Corian and other solid surface materials, even glass splash-backs are not as easy to keep clean and visually attractive.
- Character and style- tiles offer the unique opportunity to display your character and personality in your kitchen. From the tile colour you choose, to the layout of the tiles or the patterns, you have the opportunity to really put your stamp on the room, and make a visual feature. No other splashback option can stand out in the same way. Why not use contrasting grout colours, or geometric tile shapes to really create something unique and attractive?
- Affordable- tiles are the most affordable option for kitchen splashback zones. And because of this, you can change your tiles more regularly to keep updating your kitchens style and look. Or more realistically, if one of your tiles does crack or chip, you can simply replace one tile, instead of the needing to replace the whole thing.
