The Beauty and Functionality of Kitchen Splashbacks
Splashbacks are a must in kitchens because of grease and water splatter from cooking. The wall behind your range is at risk of stains and damage, and a splashback offers protection and makes this area easy to clean. Fortunately, splashbacks are also stylish and attractive. These vertical surfaces come in a wide variety of colours, patterns, and prints. You can even customise them with artwork of your choosing. At InteriorWorx, we offer splashbacks and other décor items to help make your house a home.
Benefits of a Printed or Painted Splashback in Your Kitchen
Printed splashbacks are trendy kitchen décor items that are both attractive and functional. Here are a few of the advantages of choosing a patterned, printed, brightly coloured or even solid grey splashback.
Easy to clean. When it comes to kitchen décor, “easy to clean” should be at the top of your list. Because splashbacks are smooth, sleek, flat, and nonporous, it's effortless to keep sparkling clean. Just wipe away spills or stains as they happen and occasionally clean the entire surface with a mild solution such as vinegar and water or dishwashing liquid and water. The low maintenance needs of glass splashbacks make them ideal for kitchen environments.
Heat-resistant. Just like being easy to clean, it’s also critical that your kitchen décor is heat resistant. Splashbacks usually sit directly behind your range, which means exposure to high temperatures as well as splashes of hot water, oil, or other liquids from time to time. No problem. With a good splashback, you can cook for hours with no worries about heat damage.
Low effort. Splashbacks are cost-effective and easy to install. Are you looking for a simple way to make a big difference in your kitchen décor? Much like a fresh coat of paint, a stunning new splashback can take the look of your kitchen to the next level, and you can do so without spending a fortune or taking on an exhausting project. Because splashbacks are water- and stain-resistant, your efforts will also last for a very long time.
Endless options. One of the best things about splashbacks is the infinite range of possibilities in which you can find them. If you’re looking for splashback ideas in NZ, the sky’s the limit – if you don’t find one that you like premade, you can create your own and end up with a truly custom kitchen that suits your tastes perfectly. This area is one where you can enjoy a vast range of design choices and creative freedom to create the kitchen of your dreams.
Luxurious look. Splashbacks add value to your home in various ways. Not only are they functional, but they’re also attractive. These simple additions can give your kitchen a lovely, polished look, allowing you to enjoy your space more and make a good impression on your guests. If you have your heart set on a particular colour, pattern, or print, you can use your splashback as a focal point and then decorate around it to create a beautifully cohesive space.
Tips Regarding Kitchen Splashback Ideas in NZ
Whether you're decorating a new home, renovating an existing space, or just adding a unique decorative touch or two, a kitchen splashback is a great place to start. It’s one of the easiest elements to incorporate into your home décor and a fabulous way to add personality, colour, and balance to your kitchen. Here are some factors to consider as you choose your new splashback.
The layout of your kitchen. How is your kitchen laid out? Is it an open-concept space or more enclosed? Is the layout of your appliances more U-shaped or straight? Your splashback design will depend on the arrangement of your kitchen with devices installed. Then, you can decide whether you want a decorative splashback wall, or a simple splashback installed just above your stovetop. Your splashback doesn’t have to go all the way up the wall; you can always choose a smaller one that covers only a specified area. If there are other structural details in the space, such as shelving, you can design a splashback in tandem with that layout.
Design considerations. Just as you need to understand your kitchen layout, you must also comprehend its overall design and style. Do you already have an existing style, and is it one you want to maintain? You can choose either a splashback to complement your theme, or you can use it as a way to create a new look. A splashback can give your kitchen a more modern look or make it more rustic. You can go for a nature theme, such as flowers or the ocean, or you can choose a sleek, modern splashback in a solid colour such as grey or black. Consider how the splashback you want will look with the other design elements in your kitchen as well, such as wood floors, benchtops, or other wall coverings.
The pros and cons of different materials. There are different materials to choose from when it comes to your splashback, and each one has its unique strengths. For example, ceramic tiles may be attractive and cheaper upfront. Still, they can also be harder to keep clean. Glass makes an ideal material for splashbacks because it has excellent colour consistency, it’s perfect for a modern space, and is exceedingly versatile. You can make your glass splashback any design you want, from a print of your choosing to a ready-made pattern to a solid, bold colour. We can also provide a mock-up so that you know how your splashback will look before you commit.
