Trending Splashback Ideas for a Kitchen Renovation
November 10, 2016 Total Lifestyle Builders

Renovating your kitchen has never been more exciting than now, with a multitude of new splashback ideas trending on the market.

Gone are the days of plain glass tiles in monotonous monochrome shades. Nowadays, you can go as crazy as you want with your renovations — transforming your whole kitchen in the process.

In this article, we’re sharing six stunning splashback ideas that are on-trend right now, so you can be inspired to create the kitchen of your dreams!

Texture, texture, texture

One of the most popular trending kitchen features of 2016 is texture. By incorporating a textured tiled or slump glass splashback, you can create a lot of depth and interest in an otherwise mundane space. Think bubbled surfaces, rough edges and patterned tiling.

LED Mania

Embedding LED lights behind the glass of your splashback can really light up your kitchen and give it a unique look. Want to go a step further? Use cool burning LEDs, and you’ll be able to change the colours and intensity levels to suit your mood/purposes. They’re also the most energy-efficient type — double win!

Geometric Goodness

Want to take your kitchen renovations to another dimension? Use sharp geometric shapes such as diamonds and hexagons in your splashback to create a 3D feel and turn your kitchen into an architectural delight.

Nice & Natural

In our heavily technology-driven society, we all feel at ease when walking into a natural state of some sort. The trend of nature-inspired splashbacks is clearly a reflection of our desire to take a step back and slow down. Materials such as natural stone, rustic wood and bamboo are being used to create an authentic and comforting atmosphere inside your kitchen.

Photo-realistic Acrylics

Acrylic splashbacks are one of the least expensive options out there, so why not jazz yours up a little with a photo-realistic touch? Manufacturers can make them from any digital image, so whip out one of your favourite holiday pictures and sit back and enjoy the view.

The Minimalist

Minimalism is an ever-growing trend in all aspects of modern society. More and more people are ditching the cluster and clutter and living with less because it not only looks good but feels good too. A simple splashback will give your kitchen (and your mind) a sense of organisation and calmness.
