Your kitchen splashbacks are one of the most visible features of your kitchen and can pull the whole look together. To avoid splashback regret, it’s important that you choose a colour which looks right in your space. If you’re not sure where to go with your splashback colour scheme, we’re here to share some of our top tips to make your decision a little easier!
The neutral kitchen continues to be the most popular colour scheme and this can be carried through to your splashbacks. Sophisticated, timeless and elegant – neutral splashbacks can complement the tones of the kitchen without being too overbearing. Of course, this doesn’t just have to mean white. There is plenty of range on the neutral spectrum and you could use options such as greys, creams, muted greens, and duck egg blue. Neutral can also go to the darker end of the spectrum, such as navy.
Pop of colour
If you’ve adopted a bright colour scheme for your whole kitchen design, or you want to add some drama to an otherwise neutral space, your splashbacks are an easy way to make a statement with colour. Whether you’re opting for autumnal hues of red, orange or yellow, or want to try bright blues or greens, your splashback is the perfect way to add some personality. You can also echo the colours of your splashbacks with accessories in the kitchen.
Size of the space
When it comes to the colour of your splashbacks, you do need to consider the size of the space. For example, even if you love the drama of a darker colour, this often isn’t the best choice in a small space as they’ll absorb the light. Similarly, too much white splashback in a large space can look a bit clinical if the rest of the kitchen is also very neutral. Always think about the size of the space you’re working with as this will inform colour choice.
Complementary colour scheme
Remember that your kitchen is the heart of the home and needs to flow seamlessly with the rest of the house. With that in mind, the colour choices you make in the kitchen needs to make sense with the style of the home. If you’re going for a certain colour for your splashbacks which is a departure from your normal colour scheme, you can add this feature colour throughout the living areas, such as with vases or couch cushions, to tie everything together.
