Protecting your Kitchen Walls with Splashbacks

When there is moisture or liquid in a room, particularly around the cooking areas of a kitchen, it is important to protect the walls with splashbacks.

These are large protective surfaces designed specifically to repel moisture and cooking splashes, protecting your kitchen walls from stains and damp patches.


Splashbacks are commonly made of glass. This is because glass is easy to wipe clean and provides an attractive looking, shiny surface that adds style to your kitchen - as well as being practical.

Glass splashbacks are available in a range of different colours, as well as patterns, in order to provide a feature element on your wall. These statement splashbacks look really great and can be bought in a contrasting colour to the rest of your kitchen tiles.

In fact splashbacks offer a sleek and contemporary alternative to kitchen tiles, which were often used as a way to protect walls behind cookers in the past. Wall tiles can now be used in combination with splashbacks to provide the ultimate style statement for modern kitchens.

Splashbacks can also be used in conjunction with upstands, which are strips of toughened glass designed to fit on the wall above a work surface. Both splashbacks and upstands are made of toughened glass in order to withstand the high temperatures around a hob or cooker.

Upstands can also be used in bathrooms around sink areas, where there may be a lot of moisture. So if you are looking for protective yet stylish surfaces for your kitchen or bathroom walls, then splashbacks and upstands can provide what you are looking for.
