The main purpose of splashbacks is to protect your walls while you cook and there are many options you can choose from.
From glass to metal, tiles to granite it is worth checking the latest trends.
The new kitchen trends show that a humble splashback can be so much more than just a barrier for stains.
From Corian to Dekton, Quartz to Granite, worktop materials will add style and elegance to the kitchen.
For a truly unique kitchen, a dramatic granite splashback would be a perfect choice. Each slab of granite is different, so noone else will own a piece like yours.
Paired with neutral cabinetry, this splashback will be an unquestionable star in your kitchen.
Tiled splashback are nothing new.
If you are considering this option it's worth checking the latest trends.
Metro tiles are stepping down, making room for more intricate patterns and shapes. Scallop, hexagon and penny mosaic tiles are only few of new trendy shapes available in a range of colours and shades.
For more traditional look, choose classic, timeless tiles that will not overpower the rest of the kitchen.
Glass splashbacks remain popular. Available in gloss and matt and in a range of colours, glass splashbacks are stylish and inexpensive.
Antique mirror splashbacks will offer an additional feature. Brown hued and softly patterned, they will optically enlarge the room giving it a touch of vintage look.
Copperbydesign offers a unique splashback solutions. Their copper splashbacks are designed to "evolve" in situ, all thanks to the unpredictable process on oxidisation, taking place on the surface.
"Patinas, or verdigris, are the thin layers that form upon copper when the surface of the copper comes into contact with atmospheric conditions. The patina acts as a Band-Aid, protecting the copper from corrosion and decay, whilst simultaneously strengthening the metal. "
Different environments form differing patinas: from the colours of the hues, to the speed of patination; this is all dependent on the chemicals interacting with the copper. Copper exposed to sulphur-rich and damp atmospheres (city-centres, coastal areas) will patina quicker than copper in clean, oxygen rich environments (rural, high-altitude). They will also exhibit a differing colour palette."
Like copper, brass splashbacks will also be affected by patina development. If you prefer more uniform look, sealant will help with that. It will also prevent the worktop from staining.
The latest trend among DIY craft communities has been "penny" splashback made entirely out of copper coins.
Completing such splashback will require a lot of time, both in preparation and execution. Cleaning the coins and then carefully aligning them onto the surface will definitely test your patience.
