Tiles: The Perfect Splashback For Your Kitchen

The splashback in a kitchen serves an important purpose; it protects your kitchen from water, oil and grease damage and keeps it looking new and clean.

Most modern kitchen designs have recently started to incorporated glass and aluminium materials into spashblack design, although we are firm believers that the traditional combination of ceramic tiles and effective grouting can provide both quality protection and quality interior design.

Here’s a few reasons why tiles are the ideal option to keep your kitchen looking spotless, no matter how much mess you make.



Tiles are an extremely strong and robust product, resisting damage from various forms including scratches and heat. Tiles offer a long-lasting product and changes are usually only made due to a new taste in style or appearance rather than a breakage or poor product quality. A tile’s durability makes them the ideal choice of material for most household areas that require protection from daily damage such as hot water, scrapes and kitchen produce, and provide a long-lasting product quality. A busy kitchen space is prone to spillages and daily damage, so be sure to choose a tile product that offers quality and timeless design, so your tile choice will suit your tastes no matter the current trends!


The great thing about tiles is that there are various styles, shapes, materials and qualities to choose from, making sure you can perfectly complement your household interior and design tastes. Whatever style you desire, whether colour, texture or pattern, meaning that you can find the tile to suit you and feel confident in its timeless appearance. Tiles offer both style and functionality, helping make the task of improving or redecorating a kitchen simpler.

Design Tip: A creative design idea for modern kitchens involves splashback tiles being a different variety, colour or pattern compared to the rest of the room, making it a feature and creating a statement. Tiles are great ways of adding blasts of colour or texture into a blank space, so be creative with your tile placement and colour choices!

Low maintenance


Tiles are ideally suited to protecting walls from dirt, grime and hard-to-remove oils, as they are a non-porous material. Non-porous means that they do not stain or absorb excess liquids, providing a smooth surface and quality finish. This smooth surface provides tiles with an easy, wipe-clean quality, with most mess and marks being removable with a damp cloth or sponge.
