Before you set your eyes on a particular splashback, it helps to define the theme of your kitchen. Are you looking to create a traditional kitchen design, or something more modern? What will your colour scheme be? What materials are you looking to choose for your benchtops and cabinetry? These are all important things to consider, as they will impact the look of your splashback.

Do your research to find out what splashback materials offer you the biggest bang for buck (style, durability etc), or chat to our friendly design team to understand what’s involved.
