How to choose the perfect kitchen splashback tile

When it comes time to choose the perfect kitchen splashback tile, the pressure is on! Here’s how to pick a look you will love forever.

Choosing the perfect kitchen splashback tile for your home or property development project can be a painstaking decision because this small detail has the potential to make or break the final look of the most important room in your house.

Get it right and you will sigh with happiness every time you enter your kitchen… but make the wrong decision and the space will always feel a little bit wrong.

To make sure you will love your splashback tiles for the long term, follow this five-step process:


#1 Find your inspiration

The first step is to see what’s out there.

You can be inspired by nature, colours, textures or your own personal style. Take a look through some home magazines, explore Pinterest and take note of the tiles that make you want to take a second look.

We also recommend a visit to one of our showrooms; there’s nothing like seeing the real thing up close to help you figure out what it is you want.

#2 Prepare

It’s not all about colour and personal preference. Your tiles need to work with the space and light in your kitchen. A bold colour may be too much for a large space, for example, or you might find larger tiles don’t look right in a small kitchen.

Before you shop for kitchen splashback tiles, take measurements and photographs of the space. These will help you make decisions when you are ready to make your purchase in store.

 #3 Choose your perfect kitchen splashback tile

The best way to choose your perfect kitchen splashback tile is to work with a specialist who understands interiors as well as products.

At Di Lorenzo Tiles, our showroom staff all have interior design training so they can offer strategic advice. Organise a consultation and give yourself the peace of mind that you have been guided by an expert.

This year, some of our favourite tiles for kitchen splashbacks include:

  • Bar Mosaic: An elegant range of on-trend stick mosaics that come in a range of colours and are suitable for any contemporary kitchen
  • Joint: A subtle and timeless porcelain subway tile collection
  • Marble Mosaics: A modern spin on a traditional look
  • Biscuit: These tiles add texture and interest without forcing themselves into the spotlight.


#4 Love your tiles

When you take your time and choose tiles that have classic qualities, match the space and reflect your personal taste, you’ll be able to enjoy your kitchen for many years to come.
