    Default Splashback suggestions please!

    Canít decide what colour splashback would look good in our new kitchen. Probably going with tiles but could be swayed to glass. We have a timber-effect laminate (Polytec Palace Teak) for the lower cabinets and white upper cabinets. Floor will be cork in its natural colour. Ignore the weird orange colour on the wall, thatís the glue that was sticking the hideous 1970ís brown tiles to the wall!

    White subway tiles are a safe option.

    But larger format, eg 600x300 vertically work well. We chose this {in matt) and have never regretted it

    Yes. We have a stainless steel splashback behind the cooktop/range. Closest grout is 300mm from each side.

    If using tiles behind the cooktop, don't use a light colour grout

    This kitchen went for the kit-kats in emerald, they work really well against the black cabinetry, and a mirror behind the cooktop.
    Went for midnight coloured grout, because it's not directly behind the cooktop it never gets dirty, mirror is easy to clean with Windex if it gets dirty.

    A kitchen is where you can put some colour into the room, I would suggest to choose a feature type tile,

    Your kitchen is a hard one to choose colour, you could go for matt black to tie into the appliances, and probably option for black kickboards to keep the theme going.
    Or white hand pressed subways, not the standard high gloss flat subways as these look very common.

    Below I have put a few pics of my ensuite with the matt hand pressed white subways, these look great when you have led strip lighting shining on them to show off the irregularities.
    There is also a pic of the laundry, these are white picket tiles with grey grout, these might also look ok in yours.
