Types of Splashbacks

When it comes to choosing a splashback or an upstand for your kitchen design, it can be quite a difficult choice considering the variety of materials that you could use. Every material has its unique benefits and different materials may suit your kitchen design better depending on your kitchen needs and appearance, so there is no one solution that fits all.

Here are some of the different types of materials that are often used for kitchen splashbacks:

  • Tiles
  • Glass
  • Mosaic
  • Stainless Steel
  • Marble
  • Stone
  • And many more…

These are just a few of the materials that can be used as a splashback and there are many more.
The most commonly used type of splashback is glass as this material provides a wide range of benefits. Glass splashbacks are widely available which means that you won’t be struggling to find a range of glass splashbacks to choose from.

These glass splashbacks are also available in several colours and sizes. Depending on your needs, they can be cut to your measurements and you could have a customised splashback that perfectly fits your kitchen space.

One of the most attractive benefits of glass splashbacks is that they are low maintenance and can be easily cleaned. Glass is naturally impervious to bacteria, grease, and water so it is a very easy material to clean. Any marks or stains can simply be wiped away.


Advantages of Splashbacks

One of the main elements of a kitchen is the countertop and with a splashback, you can further enhance the appearance and the functionality of it. If you’re considering a splashback or an upstand in your kitchen design, then here are a few of the benefits that you could take advantage if you integrate a splashback.

Protection for your walls
The main reason for having a splashback is to protect your kitchen walls from food preparation and cooking stains. This is especially important when it comes to water splashes, oil splashes, or any other kind of dirt that could potentially stain your walls. If you want to preserve your kitchen walls as much as possible, then an upstand or a splashback can be very beneficial.

Variety of colours & designs
With glass splashbacks, there is a large number of colours for you to choose from. Depending on your kitchen design and the colour scheme, you can choose a colour that complements your kitchen or a colour that can make your kitchen bolder and brighter. Not only are these splashbacks available in a variety of colours, but there are also various designs and styles. Whether you’re after a floral design or a plain design, there are limitless choices when it comes to splashbacks.

Did you know, that splashbacks can be installed anywhere in the kitchen and not just behind the hob or stove? Wherever you may need protection from splashes or dirt, you can install them to behind platforms to protect almost every wall in the kitchen.

Low maintenance
Many of these types of splashbacks are relatively low maintenance and a simple clean can easily help to maintain splashbacks. This is especially the case for glass. If you have a glass splashback installed, all you need to do to maintain it is simply clean it with a wet sponge or cloth and the dirt will be easily removed.

The value that you get from these splashbacks certainly make up for the cost. Different styles, designs, and types of materials may cost more than others. Glass, for example, may be costlier than tiles, but it is also more durable and resistant. When you install a glass splashback, you won’t need to re-tile it as you would with tiles.
