There are many new designs and trends in kitchen splashbacks which reinforce a great focal point in any kitchen. Choosing the right style for your kitchen can seem overwhelming as splashbacks can add character and dimension to your kitchen design. Here is the ultimate guide to the most popular kitchen splashback designs which are not only durable and functional but also stylish.


Glass is a very popular kitchen splashback material as it offers a modern, streamlined look and is a common alternative to tiles. The glass is manufactured specifically to fit your kitchen’s proportions and is a terrific low-maintenance splashback option. Opt for complementary tones and classic neutral shades over vibrant, shimmery designs as they can date quickly.


  • Affordable
  • Easy to clean
  • Grout-free
  • Endless range of colours
  • Heat resistant

– Window
A great way to incorporate natural light into your kitchen and make your space feel larger is by installing a window splashback. Choose to highlight a single window or the full length of glass or have the splashback slightly frosted to offer more privacy but still create a brighter kitchen. 

– Mirror
Mirror is making a strong comeback in kitchen splashbacks as it suits any style from traditional antique to modern designs. Mirror will also add light, space and opens up a small kitchen.


From the classic and timeless white subway tile to a decorative mosaic design, tiled splashbacks are extremely versatile and offer a textured vocal point, with unlimited design combinations to choose from. Tiles are one of the most traditional splashback options but most people hesitant to opt for tiles as the grout often requires a little more cleaning.


  • Easy to install
  • Unlimited style and design options
  • Cost effective (depending on style)
  • Can be eco-friendly (ceramic)


Stones such as Granite and Caesarstone make for a tough, easy-to-clean and grout-free splashback surface with a stylish, sleek design. Although expensive, the luxurious natural element of stone make a great splashback if you wish to match it to your bench top for a consistent, streamlined look. The impressive varying designs of natural granite and Caesarstone mean your splashback will add a unique touch to your kitchen.


  • Seamless look
  • Easy-to-clean
  • Grout-free
  • Durable
  • Unique design (Caesarstone and Granite)
