Can Wall Panels be Used as a Kitchen Splashback?

Can Wall Panels be Used as a Kitchen Splashback?

Yes, they can! PVC wall panels are not just for bathrooms. They can be used throughout the home including in the kitchen. But what makes them the perfect partner for your next kitchen project? In this blog we look at the many benefits PVC wall panels can offer in this part of your home.

Why Use Wall Panels as a Kitchen Splashback

Hygienic and Easy to Clean

Wall panels require only a wipe with a clean damp cloth to keep them looking like new. They also do not require any grout, so there is less chance of mould developing. This makes them not only easier to clean, but also extremely hygienic, making them ideal for kitchen preparation areas.

Heat Resistant

As well as installing PVC wall panels around food preparation and eating areas, you can also use them in areas which experience temperatures of up to 60 degrees, such as hot water pipes and radiators. They can also be used behind a gas or electric hob, as long as a piece of heat resistant glass is installed between the panel and the hob.

Stain Resistant

As mentioned above, PVC wall panels are very easy to look after, and this is partly due to their durability. They are extremely hard wearing and can withstand stains, bumps, and knocks, making them ideal for busy environments such as kitchens.


PVC wall panels are 100% waterproof. This makes them the perfect choice for rooms with high levels of condensation or where water is being used regularly.
