Creating stylish splashback tiles for your kitchen.

The majority of our clients opt for a glass splashback but this project in Chalfont St Giles called for a subtle, bespoke feature that would tie-in with the neutral tones in the rest of the space.

The kitchen of this amazing house opens out via bi-fold doors onto a beautiful garden with deep floral borders. It was this view of nature we wanted to emulate on the tiles behind the range.

So where do you start with a project like this? Sometimes it’s just not possible to find the exact tiles you have in mind, but it is always worth remembering that, with the help of a gifted artist you can easily change your ideas into reality.

For this floral design I commissioned artist Justine Munson in Leatherhead to produce a charcoal drawing that could be transferred onto tiles. Justine is a graduate of Central St. Martins’ School of Art and a member of The Surrey and Sussex Guild of Craftsmen. She sells her work at the British Museum and also teaches professional courses for children and adults. I met Justine at a show and admired her lovely hand-painted pottery so it was great to work with her to produce something truly bespoke for our client.

The process took around eight weeks from the original idea to installation in the client’s kitchen. We used Marlborough Tiles to bring the design to life. They have a team of talented artists who can trace a drawing onto handmade porcelain tiles with the attention to detail required.

If you are looking for a splashback for your kitchen or bathroom and can’t find exactly what you have in mind then this is the perfect way to bring your ideas to life. Creating bespoke tiles for your project certainly makes a pleasant change from standard tiles, glass or stainless steel and will be a talking point I’m sure.
