Kitchen splashbacks add character and dimension to any kitchen and are a popular aesthetic feature in many kitchen designs. Tiles are a popular choice as a kitchen splashback due to the ease of maintenance and cleaning. As tiles are available in many different shapes, colours and textures they make for a creative and visually appealing kitchen splashback. If you are going for more of a bold style in your kitchen, consider using one of these unique tiles rather than traditional neutral subway tiles.

Metallic Tiles
Add some shine and glamour to your kitchen with metallic tiles, available in a range of metal colours such as bronze, silver, gold, copper, titanium or stainless steel. Metallic tiles are great if you wish to match your splashback to your kitchen appliances and reflect beautifully to make your kitchen look larger. Create a dramatic look by using more than one metal tile pattern on your splashback or keep it simple and use simple silver tiles with a polished finish.

Geometric Tiles
Using geometric shaped tiles in bright colours can look great in a neutral kitchen and add a bold statement to your home. Colourful geometric tiles scattered across your splashback can really liven up a minimalistic kitchen. Hexagonal tiles are a popular kitchen design and can turn your cooking area into a distinctive design showcase.

Mosaic Tiles
A mosaic splashback is a beautiful form of ancient art and can be used to create any design of your choice. Mosaic tile designs are extremely versatile in terms of patterns, size and colour combinations to make a timeless art form in your kitchen. Feature small tiles on your kitchen splashback laid in any pattern or design to create a brilliant feature wall in your cooking area. Mosaics can be created by pressing the tile onto a layer of cement-based adhesive or fully creating the design prior to installation.

Cement Tile
Cement tiles are durable, environmentally friendly, non-slippery and very customisable. Typically they are highly patterned with floral or geometric designs which are great for creating a custom-made pattern for your kitchen splashback.

Textured Tiles
For a very different and unique look, consider using pebbles or other textured materials for your kitchen splashback. Creating realistic stone texture using stacked pebble tiles can bring a nature-inspired feel to your kitchen. If you think the textured look is a bit too much or wish to create a unique focal point in your kitchen, you can use the pebbles for one area of the splashback and continue with classic ceramic subway tiles in other areas.

We hope these unique kitchen splashback tile ideas help you create a beautiful feature in your kitchen.
