In the past, tiles were considered the only option for that preferred space of the kitchen called splashback. Many homeowners still select tiles as the most readily available option, in addition to being able to choose from a full universe of sizes, shapes, colours and materials. It’s this wide variety of tiles that is often considered both a blessing and a curse. A less experienced property owner may have to rely on an expert to direct them through the world of tiles and enable them to select the best option for the kitchen splashback. If you're halfway through a renovation project, you may want to follow a more DIY-technique.
