All that glitters is not gold! Be it real gold, brass or a lookalike we still want some of it in our homes for glamour, richness and excitement. And why not in our kitchens and bathrooms for a real hit of luxe? The quickest way to get that hit of gold to take centre stage is tiles or splashbacks, so we’ve been trawling the net for you to come up with options from affordable to luxe to get you drooling. So, if you are thinking of going over to the gold side in a big way then read on for some inspiration on brass kitchen splashbacks.
The Lysekil wall panel by Ikea is £35.00 for a panel 120 x 55 cm
One of the cheapest, and easiest options for brass kitchen splashbacks, is from Ikea, the beloved home of DIY’ers everywhere. Double sided panels, one side brass coloured, the reverse in a stainless steel colour, specifically for use as kitchen splashbacks. The panels are glued to the wall surface to create a flat surface that is resistant to heat, water, dirt and grease (but not suitable for gas hobs). Effective and cheap!
The faux tin wall panel by DIY Splashbacks is £16.00 for a panel 61cm x 46cm
Not strictly gold this one – more of a coppery gold, but with a deliciously textured surface to add more twinkle. The panels can be glued onto existing tiles so are a very cost effective way of updating your kitchen walls. If using behind the hob though you will need to cover with a glass splashback to protect the faux tin from heat.
Now this is a seriously luxe range by Quirky Interiors that just screams quality, at a price, for the discerning. Wall tiles, metal panels – in fact anything you want, in any size or any colour. It’s completely bespoke so never mind brass splashbacks you can have your kitchen cupboards in brass should you desire. And it’s a small independent business who specialise in this type of work, which usually means you can be assured of personal and knowledgeable service. Just take a look at their recent projects page if you want to be inspired.
The gold leaf and glass tiles by Original Style are £305.52 per m2 inc. VAT
Another luxe range and a little bit of a twist on the usual brass kitchen splashbacks, is from a company called Original Style. The Cleopatra range is made from glass with a layer of real gold leaf behind it for the seriously glamorous. From wet rooms, to kitchens, to anywhere you want a glittering wall of gold. High spec that can contend with all that water and everyday life can throw at it. This company have an extensive range of indoor and outdoor tiles to whet your appetite, and a seriously good blog that inspires and informs.
Now obviously the Ikea option is far cheaper than the others, and if you’re on a tight budget, then it’s a great choice. But if you can possibly stretch to any of the more luxe options, then the finish will be worth it’s weight in….
Tempted? If money was no object, I would be seriously tempted by brass kitchen cupboards – how deliciously different is that? I wouldn’t need to worry about paint chips anymore haha! Any other areas you would use this?
