Kitchen Splashback Trends

Posted on Tuesday 27th August 2019


Looking for the latest kitchen splashback trends?

I think everyone will remember when having a glass splashback in your kitchen was the thing!

These days, with most interior trends moving towards a more organic look, tiled splashbacks are making a huge recurrence.

People are searching for a softer look with most gloss finishes not being high on the agenda.

Natural stone such as marbles are still hugely popular in interiors. And with the introduction of large format tiles (or slabs) into the residential market, clients have the opportunity to achieve a luxe stone look without the maintenance issues or costs associated with real stone. Plus, due to the sheer scale of the slabs (some can be up to 3200×1400) you can often do the entire splashback in one piece….which means a seamless finish and no grout lines!

Our recently completed display home, The Madora in Piara Waters showcased the spectacular Larsen slab from Absolute Stone in a natural (matt) finish. Its crisp white background and strong grey veins added a modern luxe feel to this beautiful home. Paired with some black accents and pops of green, this kitchen really has the WOW factor!



Colour, pattern and texture are another huge trend in interiors, and this has moved from soft furnishing into some hard finishes such as tiles.

Mosaic tiling in particular we are seeing making bold statements as kitchen splashbacks.

Take our previous display home The Portland for example, a stunning hex mosaic with bronze and metallic finishes was used to create a chic feature splashback to the kitchen.


Or, for a subtler touch, using a neutral shaded tile in an interesting shape, similar to the Kite tile used at The Marina display home in Jindalee, is the perfect way to add a dash of “je ne sais quoi” to a kitchen.


In summary….large format tiles or mosaics are a great way to add some design flair to your kitchen. Don’t be afraid to go bold!
