Why you should choose a quartz splashback for your kitchen
If you’re renovating your kitchen, choosing the right splashback might seem like an insignificant choice. Between choosing the style and colour of your kitchen cabinetry and your new worksurfaces, it can feel like a lot of decisions to make.
Choosing the right splashback will help tie your entire kitchen together, and a quartz splashback is a first-class choice. In this blog, we’ll go over what a splashback is and why they’re important, the options available and why a quartz splashback is one of the best choices.
Do I need a splashback?
You might think that a splashback is an entirely aesthetic kitchen element. Still, it actually has a very specific purpose – it protects your walls against splashes when cooking, cleaning or preparing food.
Sauces and oils can easily stain your kitchen walls if they’re not protected by a high-quality splashback. A splashback is a wall-mounted panel, either stretching the entire length of your kitchen or just behind the hob and sink, which can easily and quickly be wiped clean if there’s a mess.
There are loads of options for kitchen splashbacks, whether you want a subtle continuation of your quartz stone worktops, brightly coloured tiling or a unique glass splashback. Here are some of the most popular options:
- Ceramic or porcelain tiles
- Stainless steel
- Acrylic panels
What is a quartz splashback?
A quartz splashback typically extends up to the height of your kitchen cabinets or, if you don’t have cabinets, up to a height of around 500mm. Matching quartz worktops with the splashback creates a seamless and streamlined look in any kitchen!
What are the advantages of quartz splashbacks?
Quartz splashbacks are a first-class choice in any kitchen, especially if you’re considering quartz worktops. Extending your worktop up the wall means your quartz’s pattern will flow seamlessly, creating a stunning focal point that draws people’s eyes upwards.
Quartz worktops are made from quartz slabs, which are then cut to size. So, sometimes, there will be an offcut which you can use for your splashbacks, especially if you’re opting for a quartz splashback behind your hob rather than the whole kitchen.
Here are some of the advantages of opting for a quartz splashback for your kitchen.
- have a high stain resistance, making them easy to clean.
- act as a continuation of your worktop, and you can match patterns and veining to ensure a seamless look.
- are tough, durable and long-lasting.
- have no grout lines to collect dirt (unlike tiles).
- are non-porous and anti-bacterial surfaces, so they’re very hygienic.
- can be custom-made and cut to size around any necessary socket holes.
- are colour-fast, so you don’t have to worry about your splashback changing colour or fading over time.
- are available in both 20mm and 30mm so that you can choose a thinner quartz for your splashback.
