If you’re looking for a kitchen splashback that has that earthy appeal, stone is the material for you. Available in a range of colours and styles, stone is a popular choice for homes whether it’s traditional or ultra modern. Stone splashbacks are also durable and easy to clean, making them a practical choice for busy kitchens. If you’re considering installing a stone splashback in your kitchen, here’s what you need to know.
Stone comes in many different varieties, so it’s important to choose one that will complement your kitchen décor. Natural stone splashbacks are beautiful but can be quite expensive and more work to maintain, while engineered stone is more affordable and very easy to maintain but still looks fabulous.
Stone splashbacks are an increasingly popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms, offering a versatile and stylish solution that is also highly durable. Here are just some of the many advantages and benefits of installing stone splashbacks in your home:
Heat resistant: Stone is an excellent heat conductor, making it ideal for use behind cookers and hobs. It will help to dissipate heat evenly, preventing any build-up of heat that could damage your walls.
Stainproof: Stone splashbacks are non-porous, so they will not absorb spills or stains. This makes them very easy to keep clean, as you can simply wipe them down with a damp cloth.
Scratch resistant: Stone is a very hard material, so it is very resistant to scratches and scuffs. This makes it an ideal choice for high-traffic areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.
Impact resistant: Stone splashbacks are also extremely tough and resistant to impact damage. This makes them an ideal choice for homes with young children or pets.
UV stable: Stone is not affected by UV light, so it will not fade over time. This makes it an ideal choice for rooms with lots of natural light.
Hygienic: As a non-porous product, our stone splashbacks are extremely hygienic, as they do not harbour bacteria like other surfaces can. As a result, they can help to create a healthier kitchen environment.
Stone is not just for kitchen splashbacks, these quartz and porcelain panels can be used throughout the home, in a practical and decorative way. Stone slabs can be used in the bathroom and even as flooring.
