Splashbacks are imperative to protect walls from water, grease, and splatters from damaging paint and penetrating into wall structures such as wooden frames. There are various options of splashbacks, and it depends on a style to match your home or property. You want a splashback that not only matches the current décor or style of your kitchen or home but also is practical, low maintenance and hardy. Splashbacks are also perfect for BBQ or outdoor cooking area. Apart from protecting your walls, they make cleaning up after a birthday party, BBQ or family dinner a breeze, depending on which type of course. But there is a reason why nearly every household has a splashback at least in their kitchen. That is because they are not only effective at protection, practical in cleaning and when chosen correctly add a neat and personal style to a kitchen or cooking area.

Each splashback range in price, maintenance and longevity. The more expensive being stone and glass with the cheaper options being acrylic.
