Why You Need Kitchen Splashback

Splashbacks are a great addition to any kitchen, and they are much more than a practical incorporation. They can often have a vast impact on your kitchen's overall look and feel, as they're a great way to help integrate your desired style and add a sense of personality that mirrors your tastes.


Kitchen splashbacks can be made from an extensive array of materials, including glass, granite and stone. Splashbacks are more than just decoration for your kitchen. They are also functional since their primary purpose is to protect the walls from splashes from cooking.



Splashbacks serve other purposes such as:

  • Brightening your kitchen by reflecting more light.

  • They can be bespoke/customised depending on the owner's preferences.

  • Prevent steam and heat from damaging the wall behind.

Properties of a Good Splashback


Suitable kitchen splashback should have the following features to serve its function:


  • Heatproof splashbacks should be heat resistant to up at least 220C. However, whichever material you choose can affect its ability to resist great heat, with some materials, such as glass, being more heat resistant than others.

  • When it comes to cleaning, splashbacks should be easy to maintain, a wipe down with glass cleaner or general cleaning agents will make any splashback look as good as new.

  • Your splashback will inevitably get splashes from cooking. However, the surface should never become permanently stained.

  • Kitchen splashbacks should never need scrubbing to remove mould or stains from group joints.
