Do you get stuck on what splashback to pick for your kitchen? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! People can agonise over which splashback to choose for their kitchen especially when it comes to what colour, shape and texture they should be using.
I have mustered up some of my favorite looks for 2020 so far and they’re sure to be a winner!
These tiles are becoming super popular during 2020 and why wouldn’t they be! They are affordable and available in a beautiful range of colours and design finishes. What’s not to love?! A perfect way to add neutrals that are interesting. Or why not try a marble kit kat splashback to really add a bit of sleekness to your kitchen (look divine, but should be sealed first). Or the pale blue which was everyone’s favourite in a local house for sale because they looked divine. You can grab the range of finger KitKat tiles at Tile and Bath Co.

2. Marble Stone
This isn’t so much a trend but a staple and a long-standing favourite in kitchen renovations. There are so many options on the market now to really mix up that traditional marble look. A little word of warning with marble would be to choose a higher level of density or it can be prone to stains. Try and choose something that is relatively hardwearing and seal with a natural stone seal. Running your benchtop up your wall for the splashback is still a very popular look in 2020 and easy to do, particularly for newbie renovators who don’t want to be overwhelmed with choosing the perfect splashback.

This is a bit of a fresh take on the Kitkat and penny round tiles. These guys are also super versatile and available in a range of colours and stones. It’s a fun and different approach to the Kitkat and penny round. This particular tile is perfect to bring together your greys and tans in a room.
4. Moroccan Zellige Square Shape
I think these are simply divine, aren’t they? These tiles are an ancestor of the subway tile. These dreamy hand-chiselled Moroccan tiles called Zellige are a beautiful statement in any kitchen. They are also available in a range of colours and textures. However, if you are a perfectionist be warned because no two tiles are alike and they can be tricky to clean. Brace yourself though, they cost a small fortune, but a splashback might be where you choose to spend your money to create that eye drawing focal point.
They are a perfect choice for character homes, traditional homes or homes with a bit of a modern Spanish feel like mine.

4. Subway Tiles
I just love a subway tile and what’s even better is you can pick them up at Bunnings & TileCloud the brand to look out for is decor8 and you can grab them for $18 sqm right through to the water wave subway tile which is my personal favourite at $100 sqm. Lay them vertically! That is the trend baby. A true testament of design & function. They are versatile, low maintenance and provide you with a clean and classic look. I’m still in love.
