6 Splashbacks Trending in 2019

Whether you’re preparing food, washing dishes, or wiping down the kitchen, chances are, you’re looking at your splashback. For this reason, if you’re not loving the look of it, you’re not loving your space.

Fresh tiles, a mirror, or even something as simple as regrouting in a new colour can have a significant effect on the aesthetic feel of your kitchen, and can be a great first step if you’re not ready to commit to a full-scale reno.

We’ve rounded up our favourite splashback looks for 2019, so read on and be inspired.

If you’ve got white cabinetry and benchtops, you’ve got a generally blank canvas to work with. Changing up the colour of the grout, or choosing a pastel tile can give a stunning, contemporary look to an otherwise safe space, in terms of style.

Introducing marble adds a touch of luxury to any space. Light in colour, it will make your kitchen appear bigger and brighter, not to mention when sealed correctly it’s super easy to clean.

Having a low-maintenance, family-friendly space does not mean you have to sacrifice style!

Mosaics are back in business for 2019. Opting for tones that won’t date, like monochrome black and white, ensures longevity, and plenty of options for cabinetry, appliances and fittings.

Forego a traditional splashback entirely by positioning your bench below a window. Incorporating a window into your kitchen design means you have a beautiful view of your yard, your splashback is a dream to clean, and you have easy ventilation if you opt for a sliding window.

Concrete-look tiles and sheets are the latest in contemporary kitchen design trends. Aside from adding a touch of sophisticated, industrial style to the space, opting for a grey, concrete splashback breaks up light tonal palettes, and ties in well with stainless steel appliances.

Subway Tiles

Subway tiles are arguably the most classic, and safest choice when it comes to a splashback, which is why they’re not going anywhere this year. Whether you’re after a Hamptons-style kitchen with matching cabinetry, or something sleek and contemporary, a subway tile will create a sophisticated, clean feel.
