Coordinating your Kitchen Splashback and Bench Top

Coordinating your Kitchen Splashback and Bench Top

Designing a kitchen means you can be creative with colour, texture and materials for all your interior features. Major elements of your kitchen such as your kitchen splashback and bench top don’t have to exactly mirror each other but they should blend and coordinate with the rest of the elements in your kitchen. Here are some stunning and effective kitchen splashback and bench top options to help you plan your kitchen renovation and ease your selection process.

Matching
For a seamless kitchen splashback and bench top, try using the same or matching materials on both surfaces. The result will be a stunning, continuous flow which will make your kitchen appear smooth and well-balanced. To create visual interest, a great option is to use a similar material and break it up with a tile format for your splashback instead of a slab. Different kitchen splashback colours such as beige, brown, grey and cream generally match with bench top materials such as neutral coloured granite or Caesarstone. For a classic combination try black subway tiles with in a traditional running pattern with black bench tops.

Contrasting
For a visually dramatic kitchen interior, choose a splashback material which contrasts with your kitchen bench top. This option is ideal if you have found a great splashback design or a graphic you love and want to go for a statement feature. Ensure you consider other design elements of your kitchen such as your flooring, appliances and cabinets and choose a colour that coordinates with your whole kitchen design. If you want to go bold with your splashback, go for a more neutral and subtle kitchen bench top material and vice versa, so the designs don’t clash. For a modern contrast, try pairing a reflective splashback option such as stainless steel with a light marble bench top.

Coordinating
You may be interested in using a mix of colours but opting for a similar pattern or shade or the other way round. Go for a splashback colour that matches with a specific hue of your bench top material to give the elements a cohesive feel. Use a soft grey kitchen splashback colour paired with a charcoal granite bench top in a light grey colour or a warm coloured subway tile paired with a beige marble kitchen bench top. A great design tip is to hold your chosen samples against your kitchen bench top and choose the most appealing material.
