The vast majority of homeowners will find that when they’re working on a luxury kitchen design, they can easily make decisions about some elements of the design, yet they really struggle when it comes to others. Often, it is the smaller details that are harder to get right and things like the kitchen worktops and the splashbacks will prove more challenging than the layout or the overall colour scheme, for example. 


Kitchen splashbacks, in particular, are something that lots of homeowners find difficult to decide on and they actually have a big impact on the overall look and feel of the kitchen as a whole. Thankfully, there are so many different types of splashbacks available to choose from these days that you won’t have to compromise. If you’re currently contemplating what splashback to choose, below we have looked into some of the best splashbacks for luxury kitchens.


Stone splashbacks 


In luxury kitchens, one of the most popular choices for splashbacks is stone like, granite or quartz. This is an elegant choice whether you go for natural granite or man-made quartz, it always looks amazing. Not to mention, it is incredibly durable too and a timeless yet modern option. When opting for stone worktops, you can always use the same colour and pattern for your splashback as your worktop for an effortless flowing look. 


Glass splashbacks 


It is becoming increasingly common for homeowners to install glass splashbacks and they are a really versatile solution. Making a statement with a glass splashback couldn’t be easier and there is a wide range of different colours and designs available to choose from. Not only do glass splashbacks look great, but they are also really easy to keep clean and they can contrast perfectly with wooden or matte finish kitchen cabinets too. 


Mirror splashbacks


This is a very modern solution and it is perfect in smaller contemporary luxury kitchens. Having mirror splashbacks helps to open up a kitchen and make it feel more spacious by bouncing both natural and artificial lighting around the room. Tinted mirror splashbacks, in particular, are a brilliant choice and opting for a dark grey or a bronze tint can make your kitchen look really chic. Tinted mirror splashbacks also hide imperfections really well. 


Tiled splashbacks 


Even though tiles are the most traditional splashback option, they shouldn’t be ruled out for a luxury kitchen design. With a vast range of tile shapes, sizes, colours and patterns to choose from, you can easily use a tiled splashback to showcase your individual style and taste. Tiled splashbacks are brilliant for adding some texture to your kitchen walls too and, again, they are incredibly easy to keep clean and looking their best. 


Stainless steel splashback


Commonly used in professional kitchens, when done right, stainless steel splashbacks can look amazing in domestic kitchens for a modern twist too. This solution is a brilliant choice because of its durability, but it is also really stylish and it is perfect for any kitchen with an industrial vibe. A brushed satin stainless steel tends to look better than polished stainless steel and it also works really well when you’re not having a big splashback area.
