A splashback not only needs to complement the style and design of a kitchen, but also be tough and robust enough to deal with everyday use.  It also needs to meet mandatory fire safety standards.

This list should help you with your choice – or may make you realise you had no idea how many choices were available!!

1. Metaline (Laminex) Splashbacks

The Metaline (Laminex) Splashbacks are one of our go to products.  They come in all different colours including reflections aka mirror lookalike.  This product is generally cheaper than tiling and easier to clean.

2. Tiled Splashback

Generally the most common choice is a  tiled splashback.  It is a safe choice in  your kitchen design.  There are literally thousands of tile design and style combinations to choose from.  Popular trends including a herringbone or subway style layouts.

3. Caesarstone Splashback

Everything Cabinets is a huge fan of the caesarstone splashback.  Caesarstone is an elegant and practical option because of its colour continuity, toughness and has an easy-to-clean, grout-free finish.

4. Window Splashback

A window splashback is an ideal way to incorporate more natural light into your kitchen and enhance the feeling of space. Be aware of privacy as unlike a normal window, it’s not possible to install internal blinds with a window splashback. Clever placement of outdoor plants means even homes without a view can benefit from a window splashback.

5. Glass Splashback

While the glass splashback was a popular choice just a few short years ago, but not so popular today.  One of the reasons is because it is a challenge to keep clean.  If you want a glass splashback choose complimentary tones rather than polarising or vibrant colours that could date quickly.

    My wife and I want to install a new kitchen splashback when we remodel next spring so thanks for sharing this. I like your point about how a window splashback allows more natural light into the room. We’ll definitely consider doing this since we only have one small window in the room currently.
