You might already have seen one of these beautiful stainless steel kitchen splashbacks somewhere. Maybe you even own one yourself!

If you're looking for your first stainless steel kitchen splashback, or just want some tips to enjoy your current one more, you'll find our tips in this article usefull!

Can't decide one a design? We got your covered, read our tips below!

Tip 1: Choose a design that fits your style and interiour decoration

A stainless steel kitchen splashback can be outfitted with any photograph, patern, image or design. There are many different options to choose from and most of them will look good in your kitchen.
Making the right choise can be hard. That's why it's best to choose a picture that means something to you. You can even use one of your own pictures.

A stainless steel kitchen splashback is very durable and will probably even outlive the rest of your kitchen. Choosing a picture that is both timeless and special to you is therefore very important. It might end up in your kitchen for a long time. 

Ofcourse, if you don't mind to change things up a bit every now and again, you can just go for a design that feels right in this moment.

Tip 2: Before you make a decision

Tip 3: Be mindfull about your power outlets

It's always good to have some power outlets near your counter top. This is probably already the case in your current kitchen. When mounting your stainless steel splashback, you don't want it to cover your sockets, rendering them unusable.

Cut outs are an excellent sollution. Cut outs are holes in your splashback that your wall sockets fit into. Ofcourse it then becomes important to measure your wall sockets very precisely. We made a handy little video to guide you through that. It shows you exactly what to do. You can watch that video here.

If you're installing a new kitchen, you'll have the option to descide where your wall sockets should be placed. At the very least, opt to place at least one power outlet on both ends of your counter top. There will most likely be appliances there like a toaster, a senseo machine or a dishwasher. You'll need a power outlet for every kitchen appliance you use.

Bonus tip: Have power outlets in the counter top itself. 

With a so called elevator poweroutlet, you can 'hide' them in your counter top. The poweroutlets come up and out of your counter top when you need them and sink back down when you don't. This looks neat and clean.

Tip 4: Make sure your substrate is clean and dry

A stainless steel kitchen splashback is easy to mount. You can easily do this yourself or have someone do it for you.

There are only a few things to keep in mind. The substrate needs to be clean and dry.Old stains are no problem, the stainless steel kitchen splashback in not transparant, so you can't see through it. Do make sure to remove anything that might start to mould like little bits of food and dust. 

That's it. Dry and clean. 

These are all the requirements for the substrate. It doesn't need to be 100% flat and smooth. Do you currently have tiles on your kitchen wall? Just leave them there! You can fit your stainless steel kitchen splashback right on top of them. In that case, it's best to degrease your tiles. 

Tip 5. Use sealant to mount your stainless steel kitchen splashback to the wall

Your splashback is ready to be mounted on your wall out of the box. There are multiple ways to do this, for instance by using screws..

The best way however, is to use sealant. Make sure to spread the sealant evenly across the back side of the splashback and press it against your wall.

We show you how to do this in one of our video's.
