    Choosing the right splashback for your kitchen

    Published on 30 January 2019, Wednesday, 5:58 AM

    With another long weekend almost upon us, it might be the perfect time to challenge yourself with a home makeover job.

    Whether you fancy yourself a bit of a green thumb, or prefer indoor projects, there are a number of renovation jobs you can embark on around the house.

    The kitchen is one of the most frequented rooms in a home, so it is likely that at some stage this space will need some TLC to keep it looking fresh and modern.

    Aside from what colour to choose for your DIY painting in this room, one of the most important decisions you will need to make is what kind of splashback to select for your kitchen.

    Tiles are one of the most common varieties - available in hundreds of different colours and patterns, you can design a tile splashback to suit your own individual tastes. Relatively easy to clean, this is a popular choice among homeowners.

    Glass splashbacks are becoming more common, with their easy to clean surface and modern look appealing to renovators. Available in textured glass and a number of different colours, this variety is fast becoming popular.

    For a modern look why not consider a stainless steel splashback? Beware though, while this material looks great in the kitchen and is easy to clean, it can show up smudges, water marks and fingerprints.
