Splashback tiling for traditional kitchens

The kitchen splashback is often a key feature within the kitchen space, for any property, contemporary or traditional. But for a traditional property in particular, what type of tiling choices should you make, to get the best possible results?

What are the effective options for splashback tiling for traditional kitchens?

There are a number of different tiling options that can allow your kitchen splashback to be the perfect fit for your traditional kitchen. These options include:

  • Choosing patterned tiles- in a traditional kitchen, patterned tiles can be a great option. Not only can these be the perfect reflection of the period of your kitchen (Edwardian, Victorian etc) but these can also create a stunning area of contrast that is sure to attract attention. From floral prints to repeated patterns, there are a wide range of patterned tiles that could make a big difference to your kitchen splashback.
  • Tiling layouts- tiling layouts are also a good way to accentuate the splashback feature in your kitchen, while also fitting with the traditional design theme. Checkerboard tiling involves using alternating white and black square tiles, and was a popular layout for Victorian properties. Basket weave and herringbone patterns can also be very effective. Choose a contrasting grout colour if you really want to draw attention to the splashback tiles.
  • Type of tiles- the type of tiles you choose can also help to suit a traditional theme. While some tiles are more associated with contemporary design, such as hexagonal tiles and geometric tiling patterns, others can be very effective in traditional spaces. These include textured subway tiles, and matt finish square tiles.
