With the intermittent lockdowns, many of us are home more than usual. As a result, the trend to extend our indoor living into our outdoor space is staying strong for 2021 according to (Gardening etc) They note that the biggest uplift in spend in 2020 (+75%vs 2018) was garden equipment and structures (such as sheds, trellising, pergolas, and outdoor kitchens). As we now start to ease into Spring and Summer, we start to turn our attentions to our outdoor spaces. Often reimagining what we can change and add to enhance the enjoyment of the space we have.
Rosheen Forbes at IKEA UK highlights the importance of reconnecting with our gardens during these times, to create a sanctuary that feels ‘unique to you’. Channelling your personality using colourful textiles, outdoor rugs, and ambient lighting are just some of Rosheen’s suggestions for a quick and inexpensive lift. However, for us at Custom Splashbacks we have seen a huge amount of interest from our customers asking if our splashbacks can be used outside for outdoor kitchens, and the answer is yes as long as you use our recommended sealant of choice CT1 https://bit.ly/3sGlOTD . We have a guide on our site for fixing and installing our splashbacks and the one which is very relevant and similar to outdoors is the bathroom sealant guide https://bit.ly/31EGVJS .
We found some of our favourite outdoor kitchens online and worked our magic to see what our splashbacks would look like in situ. Click on the links at the bottom of the images to see shop the products …..
*Please note that if the splashback has not been properly sealed and provided with some form of shelter during extreme weather, lifting may occur.
