Choosing a splashback for your kitchen in Melbourne can be confusing. Not only are there many design options to choose from, but there are also other important factors to consider, such as budget, texture and splashback material. Design Inferno provides some helpful tips to help you select the best splashback for your kitchen.

Work Out Your Budget

The first step is deciding on how much you want to spend. And the price can vary depending on material, size, design & finish. For the best looking finish for your new kitchen custom made splashbacks are the best option but come with a higher price tag. Pre-cut splashback are a cost effective option but can leave the area with unsightly gaps.

Choose a Design

The rightchoice in splashback can make a huge difference to the look and feel of any kitchen. A colour, style and design that is complimentary to the area will finish off your new kitchen perfectly. Choose colours that are bold or subtle, materials that are textured or flat, retro designs or opt for a printed glass splashback. A photographic image is unique in design and provides a feature for your kitchen finish.


When choosing the best glass splashback for your Melbourne kitchen, it can also help to consider the maintenance requirements. Most splashbacks are easy to clean, requiring only a quick wipe down to remove dirt and grime. Some surfaces will attract smudges and fingerprints more easily. On the other hand, tiled splashbacks require frequent cleaning to prevent the growth of mould and mildew and unsightly grout is always an issue. Weigh up the pros and cons of each material to determine which type of splashback is best suited to your needs.
