Colour Matching for Splashbacks

Splashbacks are no longer purely practical. Using glass or acrylic splashbacks in the kitchen is a modern way to inject colour for a sleek, contemporary aesthetic. Decorative and practical, a coloured splashback can make your kitchen look fabulous, but choosing the right colour can be a daunting task.

You may have very clear ideas from the start as to the accent colour that reflects your unique style. Or you might be influenced by the cabinets you choose. Neutrals are the fail-safe choice in many kitchens, and are the best way forward if you’re planning to move. Clear glass or acrylic splashbacks give you the option to use paint or wallpaper to create your desired look.

RaL colour choices

The RaL system defines standard glass colours and is the most popular colour standard in use today. You can browse the RaL options online, though be aware that the colour on your screen may look very different on your wall. There’s a huge range of choice, so start by eliminating the colours you don’t like to narrow down your options.

Farrow & Ball

Farrow & Ball are synonymous with luxurious and stylish neutrals and the kind of subtle period colours that can add an authentic aesthetic to your kitchen. Offwhites like Pointing and Clunch are obvious choices for the traditional kitchen, while Oval Room Blue is the ideal moody shade for a very modern kitchen and Babouche plays to the trend for dynamic Moroccan inspired colours.


Adding colour to your kitchen is a breeze with Dulux’s enormous range of fresh and contemporary colours. If you’re aware of the unicorn trend that has spilled over into interior design then pairing pastels like Candy Love and Fresh Surf will create a surprisingly crisp and clean scheme. Highland Falls, a deep and bosky green, would look sensational teamed with dark blue cabinets for a very on-trend look.


Ultraviolet, Pantone’s colour of the year for 2018, can look really gorgeous in the kitchen. Like the RaL system, Pantone offer a huge range of colours that add a richness and clarity to your acrylic or glass splashbacks for a strong and unique look in the kitchen – keep it cool with Aqua Sky or spice it up with a fuchsia pink like Radiant Orchid for a truly stunning effect.

Which material is right for me?

3mm Natural Crystal Finish

3mm Uncoated (natural crystal 3mm) - A thinner 3mm thick alternative to our 5mm thick panels. These are much more flexible than our 5mm panels, making them perfect for slight curves or situations where ultra-light applications are needed. These do not have scratch, mould and chemical resistant properties.

5mm Natural Crystal Finish

5mm Uncoated (natural crystal) - As the 3mm Natural Crystal but 5mm thick.

6mm Toughened Glass

Highly scratch resistant, toughened glass. Our glass is low-Iron…meaning that it is as crystal clear as possible. This stops the green tint that you see on most glass, meaning the colour will be unaltered and seen as it was intended. Tough and heavyweight items. Bespoke, unique, classy look. Our glass is heat resistant so can be used behind direct heat sources. You can have any colour or design…just as all of our acrylics.
