How can you transform your kitchen with a new kitchen splashback?
There are a number of ways that you can breathe new life into your kitchen by updating your kitchen splashback or adding one. In any kitchen the kitchen splashback is designed to attract attention and create visual interest. As a result, you can achieve this through a number of effective options including:
- Using a contrasting tile colour
- Using an interesting tiling layout
- Using patterned tiles
Using a contrasting tile colour for a kitchen splashback
A contrasting tile can be the perfect option for a kitchen splashback in any style of kitchen. In a kitchen that is otherwise white or cream, any colour can attract attention by creating contrast with this plain background. Blue and grey tiles can be particularly effective here for a more subtle approach, but brighter and bolder tiles such as oranges or greens can also be used to good effect depending on your interior colour style.
Using an interesting tiling layout for a kitchen splashback
A Kitchen splashback does not have to follow the same tiling layout as the rest of your kitchen space. This means that you can choose to use tiles of a different shape or size for the kitchen splashback area, or simply change the tiling layout completely. A brick bond layout or diagonal tiling can be an effective way to use square tiles in a more unusual way, while for rectangular tiles there are a number of effective options including the herringbone tiling layout, and basketweave.
Using patterned for a kitchen splashback
Patterned tiles are available to compliment any interior design style including traditional and contemporary styles. This means that no matter what style your kitchen is patterned tiles can make for a stunning kitchen splashback. Choose floral or more traditional tiles for a traditional kitchen space, and abstract or geometric shapes for a contemporary finish.
