If your kitchen wall is dark and drab, you can also choose to place segments of details onto the kitchen wall with stone or tiles. This is much easier to keep clean than traditional wallpaper, and it is perfect for people who don't have time to stress about the little oil spills or stains that have ended up on their prized splash back.
Water-resistant, heat-resistant and easy to clean walls are the ultimate in any kitchen—especially in areas where work is done. Other than natural stone, there is also the option of painted particle board, stainless steel or tempered glass which can be used as wall covering. A great alternative option for people who want to try something other than tiles.
Why not make your splash back a work of art? Just because it is in the kitchen, doesn't mean it needs to be safe. Here, small and differently coloured tiles are assembled into a mosaic, adding variety to the wall design. With such a simple, yet creative idea, we have the artistic license to transform our space!
Natural stone is one of the favourites in the kitchen wall design: It is rugged, durable and easy to care for. And due to the uniqueness of the material, it can also conjure up fascinating effects. As we see here, the stone is not flush, but undulating when placed on the wall. The result is a very cool 3-D effect. The lighting designer has also cleverly installed indirect lighting to help aid the focal point, centreing your eyes on this brilliant design!
If you want to play it safe and stick with tiles, you don't have to stick with plain white. Drifting away from this, we are you can instead add a bright shade and an interesting patterns. Creativity is therefore required here! Let your imagination run wild!
