Six reasons to choose tiles for your kitchen splashback
As your splashback usually covers a smaller area than your walls or floor, you can take the plunge and jazz things up with bright swathes of colour, unusual shapes, or add some interest with textured tiles. It’s amazing the impact that just a pop of patchwork or a few funky geometric tiles can have, they almost make slaving over the stove a delight!
Tiles to suit all budgets
Tiling a smaller area means fewer tiles, grout, adhesive and labour, so it’s a very economic way of injecting a heavy dash of style into your kitchen. And if you’re going with more expensive tiles like mosaic sheets, you can splash out on a touch of glamour with just a few tiles without breaking the bank for a whole wall’s worth.
So many styles
You could use timeless metro tiles for a contemporary feel or recreate holiday memories with Moroccan patchwork. Add pizazz with metallics, or create an oasis of calm with soft pastel tiles. Then there’s a range of tiles for kitchen splashback ideas to choose from, not to mention different options for laying tiles, such as vertical or herringbone patterns. The options are endless when it comes to creative freedom.
Protect your walls
Splashback tiles are also functional as well as fashionable. There are so many spillages and stains just waiting to happen, from sizzling fat to overflowing pots, and forgetting to put the lid on the blender! A properly sealed tiled splashback protects your walls from any unwanted mess and prevents mould and mildew from stains.
Easy to clean
One of our favourite things about tiles is that they are very low-maintenance when it comes to keeping them clean. And in a room that is used many times during the day, being able to just wipe down tiles gives you more time to conjure up culinary delights and less time cleaning!
A great upgrade
We’ve mentioned a few times that a splashback area is usually fairly small, which means it’s ideal to upgrade every now and again if you fancy a change. That’s a great (and affordable) way to try something new or to keep your kitchen up to date with the latest trends.
