Marble has never gone out of style and has become a firm favourite in our homes thanks to Millennial trends. From marble-top coffee tables to mural walls, the simple and elegant design of natural marble can pair with almost any decor. Its versatility means it can work in a minimalist space just as well as more ornate rooms and is featured just as much in modern homes as traditional, period properties.
Marble has been gracing kitchen surfaces for centuries. You can now create customised splashbacks to match your worktops or add a touch of luxury to a neutral space, while also making cleaning easy.
Make your splashback a design feature
Just like tiling the area near your hob, splashbacks help to protect the paintwork in your kitchen. However, splashbacks are much easier to clean and have a longer lifespan than tiles as there is no grout to maintain. A splashback panel is one unit that can be wiped clean with ease.
You can also turn splashbacks into design features by ordering a printed splashback. This gives you more freedom with designs and colour schemes and can turn a practical necessity into a stylish accent in your kitchen.
Creating realistic marble designs
To create a realistic marble splashback, you need a high-quality image of natural marble. This can have a flush of colour, be mixed with terrazzo-style tiles or even be mixed with metals for a touch of glamour. It is best to pick a neutral or pastel colour to complement your existing decor. Our plain white marble splashbacks are incredibly popular because they suit every type of kitchen.
As an added bonus, printed splashbacks do not have the same absorbency or the high price tag of real marble. This means you don’t have to worry about stains and can get a luxe marble effect within your budget.
Our printed splashbacks can be made from acrylic or glass. Acrylic is a more cost-effective option if you are on a tight budget. Glass is still affordable and is treated for heat resistance, meaning it will not crack from the steam of boiling pans or hot specks of oil. Whichever material you choose, you will receive a high-quality splashback panel with a gorgeous marble effect, while keeping the cost of a kitchen renovation to a minimum.
