Seven splashbacks that splash back

Want to bring impact to your kitchen from one key feature? Well, splashbacks are high visibility – here are some great examples to inspire

1. Mirror – look both ways

Here, the owners had a modern country style in mind with timber elements and a matt black theme – a mirror splashback adds the rural outlook in reflection and adds to the overall perceived sense of space.

2. Marble-look quartz – all in the family

Want the look of solid marble without plundering the planet or re-morgaging? There is a way with Trendstone Cala Quartz sheets. More impact? Why not marry it to the island?

3. Brilliant in brass

A gleaming brass mosaic splashback really does make a splash in this showhome's on show kitchen – the more so for being open to the wider living area with a mainly black and white decor.

4. Window splashback – let there be (natural) light

For this kitchen, a prominent glass splashback looks out over the garden, optimising natural task lighting on the perimeter benchtop.

5. Calacatta marble – noble air

For this kitchen, materiality is centred around a monolithic reading of its Calacatta Viola benchtop and splashback – bold and graphic against the burgundy-coloured cabinetry as an expression of the owners’ enthusiasm for colour.

6. Cinder block – semi-industrial chic

For this kitchen in a home with a semi-industrial look, the designers constructed a cinder block wall to divide the scullery and kitchen that would also highlight the rawness of the wider architecture.

7. Black stone – at one with the cabinetry

Basalt Black Neolith engineered stone features on the splashback of this kitchen – “we wanted the kitchen to be open to the living area without imposing on it visually or dimensionally,” says the designer.
