Kitchen design trends - 2022
Utilising the same material on your worktop and wall is a great way to create drama and make the space feel less busy or overwhelming, especially in large open space rooms. Look to your kitchen designer for ideas around the colours and materials to use to keep installation and ongoing maintenance costs down.
Self adhesive splashbacks are of course more affordable but you will need to find them in 'cut to fit' size, to avoid a gap around them when placed within a cooking alcove. Instead, consider cut to fit splashbacks made of glass or natural stone, a smart way to avoid seeing grout lines and faster to install than tiles.

Design Manager at The Myers Touch, Sophie Mason, agrees that antique mirrors are a practical option providing a durable surface for a wet, heavy usage area, whilst being an eye-catching design statement.
