A blank canvas is often the most daunting thing for an artist. The look of a plain white background can strike fear into any creative person’s heart and it’s not just artists either; for example, an untouched piece of paper or blinking cursor on a white screen can cause a writer to break out in a cold sweat. It’s the thought of starting from scratch, the road laid out before you; stretching ahead into the unknown. Where do you start? The thought can be overwhelming and often, the hardest thing to do is make that first decision. Then the rest starts to fall into place.

The same can be said when you’re decorating your home. Often it’s so difficult to get that first decision made; whether it’s a simple colour scheme or something a little more complex. With the clients we’ve worked with, a lot of them have said the best thing to do is pick a particular item to centre the whole room around; for example a rug for the living room or a piece of artwork for the bedroom. We’ve found that a lot of times people choose to centre their kitchen on their kitchen splash back.

A kitchen splash back can really tie the whole room together and when you have that first decision of what kitchen splashback you would like, i.e. in terms of colours, design and style, the rest of your decisions will be made that much easier!
