Kitchen splashbacks or bathroom backsplash? Why not both?!

We think, if you’ve got big tiles why not have big ideas? And if that means fitting your home or commercial property with splashbacks (or backsplashes) galore why the fig not? We’ve written previously about Backsplash Ideas to Update Your Kitchen Design so now we’re going to look at the merits of using Porcel-Thin tiles to catch splashes anywhere you wish.

Sanitary splashbacks

Why do we use splashbacks? To shield other wall and floor coverings from splashes of water, oils and food substances in the kitchen and splashes from the sink, shower or tub in the bathroom. They help us to keep our rooms clean and help protect walls and floors, that may not be tiled with wipe-down wonders like porcelain tiles, from sticky messes and stains.

Did you know that Porcel-Thin tiles…

  • Boast an ultra-low water absorption rate of less than 0.5%?
  • Are not only durable but they’re resilient to high temperatures, which is crucial for a splashback close to cooking equipment and in overly warm bathrooms?
  • Are so thin that they can be fitted as splashbacks over existing wall coverings so they present no ridge or gap in which dirt can fester?
  • Come in an extra-large format, which means you could use one tile to cover a large area of your wall so there’s no need for grouting or cleaning the furrows between tiles?
  • Offer a specialist collection of antibacterial tiles for maximum hygiene in food preparation areas and both public and private washrooms?
