Round Up: Kitchen Splashbacks

Round Up: Kitchen Splashbacks

After much planning we finally purchased a new kitchen last weekend. We will be installing it in about 3 week and have everything sorted- except the splashback. Over the past 4 days we've been investigating every possible option, here are our favourite 10. Let us know your favourite after the jump...

Having purchased the FAKTUM NEXUS kitchen in black-brown from IKEA we're looking for a light and bright splashback. We really like all the pictured splashbacks but some stood out more than others. We really liked the idea of having a mirrored splashback to make our kitchen look bigger but we didn't like the idea of cleaning it! The green tiles in image 7 are our latest infatuation however they would clash horribly with our existing appliances, particularly our Kitchen Aid mixer in Pistachio. We can easily see the penny tiled floor working as a splashback but in Australia we don't have pennies. At this stage we're thinking about thin, stainless steel tiles in a brushed finish similar to these. Do you have any suggestions for a splashback? Anything you would recommend or warn us against?
