What advantages does a kitchen back wall offer?
Kitchen splashbacks have many convincing advantages. Not only do they protect the wall from dirt and splashes, but they are also easy to clean . In addition, they offer a great opportunity to design and decorate modern kitchens . Further advantages arise from the possible uses, which we will explain below.
Can you glue a kitchen backsplash to tiles?
Kitchen splashbacks can easily be attached to existing tiles. This is particularly practical because tile backsplashes are usually difficult to remove. If you do succeed, the tiles are often damaged so that they cannot be reused elsewhere.
You can cleverly avoid this problem with a fashionable kitchen back wall. To attach them to the tiles, it is best to use neutral silicone that is free of solvents , as this not only ensures excellent adhesion , but also a long-lasting connection . Before you can start gluing, you should wipe the tiles sufficiently clean and dry to improve adhesion.
It is also important to ensure that the rear wall is correctly aligned . If you attach it crookedly, it not only looks unsightly, but can also mean that it no longer fits perfectly. Allow the silicone to harden after the gluing process. You should follow the instructions on the manufacturer’s packaging . If the kitchen back wall sits perfectly and firmly, it protects your kitchen from dirt and splashes and at the same time is a beautiful eye-catcher .
How do you clean an acrylic kitchen backsplash?
In order for you to be able to benefit from your kitchen back wall made of acrylic glass or another material for a long time, it is necessary that you clean it regularly . This is easy to do with kitchen back walls made of acrylic glass. To do this, you should follow the steps below:
Roughly clean the kitchen back wall: The first step is to remove loose dirt and dust from the kitchen back wall. The best way to do this is to use a soft cloth or a feather duster. You should not use coarse or scratchy materials, such as kitchen sponges, because these could cause scratches on the surface.
Prepare cleaning solution: Mix warm water with mild dishwashing liquid at a rate of 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid per liter of water. You should definitely avoid using aggressive cleaners because they could attack the surface of the kitchen back wall.
Remove dirt and grease splashes: Use a soft, non-abrasive microfiber cloth and dip it into the cleaning solution. Then wring it out well until it is just a little damp. Now you can remove dirt and other contamination from the acrylic glass. You should not use excessive force to avoid damaging it.
Rinse the kitchen back wall: The best way to remove soap and dirt residue is with clear water. To do this, you can use a cloth, which should be clean and damp, to wipe off any residue.
Drying the acrylic glass kitchen back wall: Finally, dry the kitchen back wall with a soft, lint-free cloth. This way you avoid unsightly streaks and water stains that could otherwise remain on the surface. Here too, it is important that you do not use any coarse or abrasive cloths that could cause scratches.
The steps explained can be used to optimally clean an acrylic glass kitchen back wall. It also retains its shine permanently. However, be sure to avoid using sharp tools and aggressive abrasive cleaners for cleaning. These are not necessary and could scratch the surface.
Can you glue a kitchen backsplash to wallpaper?
You can attach a kitchen splashback not only to tiles, but of course also to wallpaper. However, it is also important that the surface is clean, smooth and dry . Also use a neutral and solvent-free silicone for attachment.
How well the back wall sticks to the wallpaper depends, among other things, on its quality and the surface of the back wall . These aspects also determine how stability behaves. Materials such as acrylic glass, aluminum composite and hard foam are particularly light and can therefore be easily attached to the wallpaper with silicone.
Before you start, check the splashback manufacturer's instructions to make sure it's suitable for wallpaper. It is also advisable to try out the silicone on a small area of the wallpaper to ensure that it does not cause any damage and that the wallpaper does not start to come off.
Also note that the kitchen back wall may be difficult to remove and damage to the wallpaper cannot be ruled out.
How do I install a kitchen back wall?
If you install the kitchen back wall professionally, you will be able to enjoy it for a long time. In addition to silicone, assembly adhesive is also suitable for attachment. To do this, follow these steps:
Thoroughly clean the wall to remove dirt and dust
Apply solvent-free and neutral assembly adhesive to the back of the kitchen wall, working extremely evenly
Place the back panel in the desired location on the wall and press firmly
Allow the assembly adhesive to harden completely according to the manufacturer's instructions
How long does a kitchen splashback last?
When used properly and cleaned regularly, kitchen splashbacks can last for many years . The service life depends on the materials used and the quality of the installation.
Glass back panels and stainless steel back panels are particularly durable. As a rule, they retain their attractive appearance and functionality for many years. However, if the back panel is made of plastic or a special film, its durability may be reduced because scratches and wear can occur more easily.
A kitchen back wall will last longest if it is maintained regularly and avoids the use of aggressive cleaning agents . You should also not touch them with pointed or sharp objects, such as a kitchen knife or scissors.
There is no set lifespan for kitchen splashbacks due to the many different factors.
Is a kitchen back wall made of glass or aluminum Dibond better for me?
Kitchen splashbacks can be made from different materials. In our online shop we offer, among other things , kitchen back walls made of glass or aluminum Dibond . The fundamental difference between the two materials relates to heat resistance. An aluminum Dibond kitchen back wall is only heat-resistant up to 80 degrees , while ESG panes can withstand even 300 degrees . If you use a gas stove in your kitchen, the only option for you is a glass back wall.
The two materials also differ greatly in their appearance. There is a satin foil on aluminum, which creates the matt look . Glass, on the other hand, shines and causes reflections in the room. It is also crucial how much you want to spend on a kitchen back wall. Alu-Dibond back panels are generally a little cheaper than those made of glass. Another advantage is that an aluminum back panel can still be edited afterwards , but a glass back panel cannot.
Your kitchen, your style – splashbacks for every taste

However, we recommend investing enough time in looking for a beautiful kitchen back wall. Ultimately, it should fit your furnishing style and ideally underline it skilfully.
Thanks to our large selection of stylish kitchen splashbacks, you're guaranteed to find something to suit your taste - whether it's mainly black or brightly colored. We will help you make your choice with our tips.
The slightly different kitchen back wall
In the past, kitchen splashbacks were often covered in tiles. The main practical benefit was that they could be cleaned quickly and easily. Even today you can often still find a tile backsplash in old apartments and houses. Many people have long known that the nicer alternative is the kitchen back wall with an individual motif .
Such a wall decoration is in no way inferior to the tiled backsplash: it is heat-resistant and protects the wall behind it from dirt and grease splashes. At the same time, it gives the kitchen a modern ambience . Kitchen back walls made of acrylic glass are particularly impressive with their high-gloss appearance and brilliant colors as well as a special depth effect.
Glass, metal and much more
Kitchen splashbacks can be made of glass, aluminum dibond, rigid foam and other materials. Real glass has the advantage that it is particularly robust and therefore well suited for the area behind the stove. While cooking, it can happen that you accidentally knock the pot or pan against the wall. But it has to be able to withstand this, which is the case with glass.
If you want the back wall to be particularly light , we recommend having it made from Alu-Dibond or rigid foam. These are further features of the materials we offer:
Alu-Dibond: These aluminum composite panels are made up of two aluminum layers and a black polyethylene core. The surfaces are each covered with a film on both sides, which can be plain, multi-colored or enamelled as desired. These panels are extremely light and can easily be cut into any shape. At the same time, they have a high level of stability, are temperature-resistant and are therefore ideal as a practical splash guard behind the work surface and the stove. In contrast to comparable materials, they are relatively inexpensive.
Rigid foam: Rigid foam panels are made from solidified foam, which in most cases is polystyrene, polyurethane or polyvinyl chloride. They are characterized by their good insulating properties and high rigidity, and are moisture-resistant, robust and resistant to swelling. The material can be easily sawn or cut. In some cases, rigid foam panels serve as a base for acrylic or toughened glass when small unevenness needs to be leveled out.
Acrylic glass: Visually, acrylic glass is similar to conventional glass. However, in contrast, it is completely unbreakable and insensitive. It also scores points with its temperature resistance and ease of care. Acrylic glass can be processed and printed from behind using lasers, saws, milling cutters and drills. The combination with high-quality photo prints creates the unique appearance of the acrylic glass plate.

Do you still need tips to help you make the right choice? Then you should continue reading here, because in this section we answer the most frequently asked questions on the subject and give practical design tips for a kitchen back wall.
Which kitchen back wall is modern?
White glass back walls can already create a modern appearance in the kitchen. The glass kitchen back wall should ideally be made of safety or acrylic glass because it is very robust and heat-resistant. The kitchen back wall is most beautiful when you breathe life into it with an attractive motif or photo. In this way, even photorealistic images can be integrated into the kitchen.
How do I design the back wall in the kitchen?
Most kitchen back walls consist of a tile backsplash. Of course you can also paint them or attach photo wallpaper. However, a professionally made kitchen back wall made of glass, aluminum composite or hard foam looks even better. Unlike wallpaper or wall paint, any grease splashes and food residue can be easily removed after cooking.
What is best as a kitchen splashback?
Different materials can be used for the kitchen back wall. Fine materials such as stainless steel, glass, aluminum, wood or stone are suitable for high-quality kitchens. Composites with coatings made of melamine resin, as well as acrylic and plexiglass are particularly easy to handle and clean.
Which kitchen splashback is easiest to care for?
All materials have advantages, but metal kitchen splashbacks are considered the easiest to care for. That's why they are often used in commercial kitchens. In private household kitchens, stainless steel or aluminum are mainly used. These materials, for example, fit the popular industrial style.
We spend many hours in the kitchen every day preparing or eating food. Stimulating conversations also take place there. That's why you should attach great importance to the attractive furnishings and design of your own kitchen.
There is choice in every respect: in the type of kitchen furniture, the electrical appliances, but also in the wall design. The area immediately behind the stove is very important. Grease splashes, dirt and dust regularly land in this area. That's why it's so important to provide the kitchen back wall with a splash guard. Traditionally, tile backsplashes are used for this, which are still found in many households.
However, compared to modern kitchen back walls made of glass, aluminum dibond or rigid foam, these have a few crucial disadvantages: They cannot be easily taken with you when moving and cannot be adapted to suit the kitchen furnishings. The tile backsplash is often already in place before the kitchen furniture and appliances are installed and then does not fit in perfectly.
It's different with our kitchen back walls: These are both easy to attach and easy to remove. Thanks to the large selection of motifs, you are sure to find a suitable product for your own kitchen. Take a good look at the pictures in the online shop and try to imagine them in your room. What effect do you want to achieve and what feels particularly good?
