As a supplier of some of the best quality brands for all kitchen fixtures and fittings, we’re often asked for our opinion on kitchen backsplashes and why they make such a difference to your home.

In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of installing a kitchen backsplash, how you can get creative with your design and where to go when you need help choosing the right materials for your kitchen renovation.

The Benefits of Installing a Kitchen Backsplash

While some recent design trends suggest turning away from your classic backsplash in favour of other unique and fun ideas, we at Builders Discount Warehouse have seen firsthand the benefits of installing a kitchen backsplash in your home, and how you can get creative with it.

In this section, we’ll discuss some of the reasons why our clients prefer to install kitchen backsplashes and why it’s something we don’t think you should ignore with your renovation.


The kitchen is often thought to be the heart of the home, and usually one of the places most prone to spills and mess. Adding a kitchen backsplash behind your stove will afford you an added layer of protection.

The backsplash is there for a reason; it protects your walls from any potential damage and spills. It even – to some extent – keeps out pests like insects and cockroaches.


With the right material, a kitchen backsplash can be extremely durable. Most of the time, the materials you use for a kitchen backsplash are created to withstand the wear, tear and heat of a kitchen in ways that your average “naked” wall cannot sustain.

It’s for this reason that many would-be renovators – despite current design trends – often opt for traditional, proven materials when choosing to install a kitchen backsplash in their home.

Increase the Value of Your Home

No one wants to walk into their dream home to find the kitchen covered in dirt and grime. For resale value, the installation of a kitchen backsplash is a must.

It shows potential buyers you care about your home and have taken care of the property by installing a kitchen backsplash to protect your walls from cooking mess.

Easy Cleaning & Maintenance

Cleaning and maintaining your perfect kitchen can be a bit of a hassle. And if you don’t have a backsplash in your kitchen, it’s much more of a chore.

With the added layer of protection from your stove, most kitchen backsplashes are easy to clean and maintain, meaning that you don’t have to spend more time cleaning to get the look you’re after.

Easy to Install or Change

So you’ve found your dream home but the kitchen backsplash just isn’t doing it for you. The beauty of installing a backsplash in the kitchen is that you can easily install it, or change out your existing backsplash for one more suited to your tastes.

Aesthetic & Design Flair

Let’s talk about the fun stuff: design and aesthetic. The kitchen backsplash is one way you can be guaranteed of injecting your personality. You can get creative with a pop of colour, or add a funky patterned tile. You can even match the kitchen backsplash to your countertops or do something entirely different with a theme.

If you want to showcase your design flair, installing a new kitchen backsplash is a great way to do it.
