Creative kitchen wall ideas

So, you'd like to say goodbye to the tiles on the kitchen wall, but you have no imaginative alternative? Then we have the perfect ideabook lined up for you! A kitchen wall or splash back does not have to be dull and boring, especially not with the range of available options today. Fill your mind with colorful and unusual ideas for wall design inspiration.

Natural stone

Natural stone is one of the favourites in the kitchen wall design: It is rugged, durable and easy to care for. And due to the uniqueness of the material, it can also conjure up fascinating effects. As we see here, the stone is not flush, but undulating when placed on the wall. The result is an exceptional 3-D effect. The lighting designer has also cleverly installed indirect lighting to help aid the focal point.


If the whole kitchen wall is dark and drab, you can also choose to occupy only parts of the kitchen wall with stone or stone tiles. This is phenomenally easier to maintain than wallpaper and is perfect for people who want to quickly clean up spills on the go.


Water-resistant, heat-resistant and easy to clean walls are the ultimate in the kitchen—especially in the work area. Besides natural stone, there is also painted particle board, stainless steel or tempered glass which can be used as wall covering.

Tiles with a difference

Tiles in the kitchen have been popular for as long as one can remember. Drifting away from the white and boring, we are finally starting to see bright shades and interesting patterns. Creativity is therefore required here!


On top of colour, we see a more unusual variation of  tiles in this kitchen. The small, different coloured tiles are assembled into a mosaic, thus bringing a bit more variety in the wall design. With such simple, yet creative tile ideas we can be artists in our own homes.
