Tempured or toughened glass is perfectly safe as a splashback behind a gas cooktop or stove. I don't recommend an acrylic splashback behind any kind of stove or cooktop.
Hi Angela! Love the new kitchen! As you have included french doors in your design we suggest you use either a white subway tile or contrasting marble tile or splash-back to match the aesthetic of your kitchen! Hope that helps, The Schneider Electric Team.
Kitchen splashback - help needed please!
What kitchen pendants & stools will suit my new kitchen?
Splashback advice please!!
Check out Southern Cross tiles. Gorgeous range and large so easy to clean...
I agree with Michelle. Your kitchen is classic and glass is just too contemporary and frankly boring! Go for a subway, hexagon or fishtail with warmth as well as grey - I think that would work well. Consider a slip cover perhaps that can be thrown in the wash and if an indigo looks even better when it fades a little!
I think a soft grey subway tile would work really well if you like the look of subway but are concerned about matching the white of your cabinets. Marble subway (or even fan shape) would also be gorgeous, if that is in your price range.
sounds a bit odd but a MIRROR splash back looks fantastic and makes room look larger.
Not hard to clean and you see the space not the mirror.
Looks fantastic in daughters house
stainless steel is a pain to clean..I'd stay away from it..used to work at KFC..every night we'd have to clean all the doors etc ..hence my bias..
at my old place I had black granite tiles that matched my black granite top? was existing when we moved in ..
may be worth pursuing ?
I think tiles could add to the character of the space. I personally find glass pretty boring and quite overdone these days.
Hi Angela70! A subway in white would look great in this space and easy to clean like the one I used on a job a few months ago! Timeless, elegant, works back with pretty much everything.
I love mirror also but, can be annoying as it shows every splash from the stove. Marble tiles would also be a practical and gorgeous option!
In terms of stools, I quite like the following:
I think glass. What kind of stools are you going to be using?
Hmmm just at the same place. I'm thinking glass - smooth finish, easy to clean and won't detract from the rest of your lovely work.
or this one..
not sure how hard to clean these?
I love tiles..much more character..
