Kitchen splashbacks: functionality and aesthetics. A few examples
Kitchen splashbacks can be made from many types of natural stone: marble, travertine, granite, sandstone, slate, polygonal stone, SKIN flexible slate veneer, pebbles etc. The most popular colours are beige, grey, yellow, blue, rusty, black, brown etc. Natural stone splashbacks offer the advantage of chromatic diversity. This is due to the fact that no stone looks exactly like the other. This diversity provides each decorated space with a special kind of dynamic. If you're not looking for a very colourful space, opt for natural stones that have similar colours and create a fresh, neutral look.
Many times, the splashback becomes a pretext for cladding the entire wall, like in the above image. The slate used here is in perfect harmony with the wooden furniture and the metal cooker hood. The result is a mix of rustic and elegant styles with a touch of high-tech provided by the metallic stove. In the below image we have an example of a space that looks bigger than it actually is due to the similar tones used. The splashback is made from multi-coloured slate panels.

Decorative natural stone is often used for splashbacks. This includes panels (marble, slate, limestone quartzite), Homa slate, Kavala slate, Sikis mix slate and others. Marble, for instance, has always mixed well with metallics. In the below project, things are taken even further. The Volakas marble countertop is associated with a splashback made from a Nihaki White and polished Thassos marble mix. This combination is better suited for those that prefer a cooler mix of design elements.

Noisette Natur slate (pictured above) contains a wide range of shades, from grey to rust, yellow and black which can be highlighted successfully using adequate lighting. This type of natural stone provides the space with warmth and colour without being too aggressive.
In the below image you can see 10 x 10 tiles of multi-coloured tumbled slate. The tiles are installed both vertically and horizontally, while the joints and buttons give the kitchen a certain dynamic. This apparent accumulation of elements is counteracted by the chromatic coherence of the furniture and countertop. This way, with a minimum investment, the splashback provides the space with personality and balances the entire design.
