Yeehaa wins for a splashback

kitchen splashback

Having extended the original two bedroom property, every room of the Ward home was reconfigured, making the kitchen the central hub of the home. Utilising a large skylight to maximise the use of light meant they were able to avoid the need to have a window in the new kitchen and benefit from the privacy of not looking out at neighbouring properties.

This expanse of wall allowed creativity with the choice of splashback. They knew they were seeking a glass option, as this would be the easiest to keep clean. Having settled on the pattern design, they deliberated over the colour. They were seeking something vibrant, yet not overpowering, as well as a colour that would be enhanced by the illuminated LED strip lighting across the top.

The metallic range seemed the obvious choice, with Resene Yeehaa being not only being the perfect complement to the cabinetry, but also to the clear blue sky visible through the skylights on a bright summers day.

It’s an ideal focal point against the neutral palette used elsewhere in the home. Tracy has been easily able to accentuate the turquoise colour through to their open plan living area by accessorising with a similar shade of cushions.
