Splashback Trends Not to Miss in 2020

07 February 2020

Renovation is all the rage… but sometimes simply updating your splashback or wet area wall can give your kitchen or bathroom a whole new vibe. Some exciting new splashback trends are expected to explode onto the design scene in 2020, offering stunning new options to refresh your space.

Oversize Splashbacks and Slabs

Why limit yourself to a standard size splashback, when it can carry across the whole wall? Add dramatic effect to your kitchen wall with an oversized splashback that becomes a statement piece or even a whole feature wall. Marble and stone looks make excellent wall-sized splashbacks, and can add a touch of class to your kitchen.


Boho Chic

Bohemian styles lend a unique and creative vibe to a room, with artistic shapes and startlingly stunning colour combinations. They lend a fun, vibrant atmosphere to a room, and have been cropping up more and more in kitchens and bathrooms, with people embracing bohemian-inspired tiles and carrying that look over to other rooms in their houses.


The Terazzo style is back, and it looks like it will be here to stay. This one-of-a-kind surface, made from chips of recycled marble, quartz, glass and granite, can be seen in bright, bold colours and eye-catching mosaics, or in softer natural colours – there is something to suit all styles of home.

Vibrant Colours

More and more homeowners want a pop of colour to draw attention to a stunning room. The splashback is the perfect standout feature in a kitchen or bathroom, with many vibrant colour options to choose from, which can be selected to capture your desired ‘feel’ for your home. 2020 colour trends are being influenced by ideas of ‘wellness’, calmness and relaxation, with Pantone’s ‘Colour of the Year’ being a Classic Blue, and Dulux predicting calming greens, blues and earthy tones will be popular colour choices this year.


Marble: The Timeless Classic

For many years marble has represented luxury and sophistication, and will always be a much-loved option for splashbacks, benchtops and other home décor items. Marble looks particularly attractive when paired with navy cabinets and brass accents, which are also seeing a surge in popularity at the moment.  Although marble can be a costly and heavy product, innovative products such as DecoSplash allow you to achieve the stylish look of marble without the installation costs or hefty price tag, with stunning marble and granite inspired splashbacks for any kitchen or bathroom space.
