Many modern homeowners assume, and very rightly so due to their frequency of use, that splashbacks are always present in a kitchen. Splashbacks are an integral part of the kitchen that forms a protective barrier between the kitchen counter and adjoining walls. These are made of granite, marble and/or quartz although other materials can be used to match the overall design and worktop material.
Kitchen splashbacks are made out of easily cleanable materials natural stone, granite, glass, tiles, laminate, etc. and are shields that are placed behind stove tops, counter and sinks to disable water from seeping into the adjoining walls from the worktops and to enable quick cleaning of these areas.
These are the benefits of installing splashbacks in kitchens:
- Splashbacks prevent water seepage into kitchen walls and are thus helpful to maintain the structural condition of a home. This helps to negate any disadvantages of indoor plumbing.
- They are resistant to oil, grease and water, and hence aid in keeping the kitchen clean at all times.
- They are usually made out of fire resistant material and thus help to keep the kitchen safe in event of any fires due to malfunction of stoves or a grease fire.
- They add to the overall aesthetic quality and design appeal of the kitchen. They are made of different kinds of materials and are available in a range of colors, patterns and textures and some even come with special light inlets. Since the kitchen is quickly becoming the focus of most homes with a lot of family activities conducted within, they add to the overall appeal and “feel good” factor of the kitchen.
