Details

Before placing an order for any of our coloured splashbacks, please make sure you have ordered and reviewed a sample in your preferred colour as once an order is processing, colours or sizes cannot be changed. This is necessary as colours will appear differently on varying screens and devices.

Additionally, any coloured samples ordered are to be used as colour reference only, therefore you may receive a sample in either 3mm or 5mm. For a thickness specific sample, please order a Clear Acrylic sample in your required thickness.

A solid high-quality Perspex® colour acrylic splashbacks, for use in the kitchen or bathroom to protect your walls from splashes. While they are very practical, acrylic kitchen splashbacks can also be used cleverly as part of your interior design adding character to your room.

In addition to being impact-resistant, our acrylic splashbacks are a safer choice than glass in the home, and will also keep their colour and will not deteriorate with age. This is particularly useful for splashbacks that are made from brightly coloured acrylic or for splashbacks that have been printed with a design or pattern that you want to remain clearly visible for years to come.

Acrylic kitchen splashbacks are also very lightweight, despite its strength, so it is easy to fit and install with ease. It can be fitted either by drilling to the wall or by using an appropriate adhesive to glue it securely to the surface.

While glass and other materials may require more attention when it comes to cleaning, acrylic can be cleaned effectively with just warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth, so is perfect for a low-maintenance addition to your kitchen, bathroom or utility room where hygiene is important.

If you are choosing an acrylic splashback with a mirrored finish, it requires a completely flat surface beneath, as acrylic is not as rigid as glass mirrors, and this flexibility can cause distortions in the reflection, particularly with larger splashbacks. To avoid this and to ensure better visual integrity, we recommend that you either use thicker acrylic splashbacks to reduce the flexibility or use sheets of MDF to provide a flat surface for the splashback to adhere to. All adhesive needs to be added to the mirror in a thin even layer to ensure there are no lumps and bumps.

If you are considering adding acrylic splashbacks to your next room or design, get in touch and we can discuss how best to add some colour to your room. We have also launched our Splashback Fitting and Measuring Service.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between budget and premium acrylic splashbacks?

What we have called a budget splashback is in fact world-class quality coloured acrylic, often called Perspex or Plexiglass. This acrylic is a solid colour right the way through and is a very cost-effective high-quality solution. The only slight drawback is that there is a limited range of colours available which may not suit your design.

This brings us nicely to our premium range of splashbacks. These are made from clear acrylic with the colour printed to the back using the latest UV printing technology. This allows us to create almost any colour imaginable using CMYK colour mixing. The main difference in the finished product is that with our premium acrylic splashback you see through the clear to the colour, which is why you will sometimes hear them being described as glass look.

Both products create stunning results in the kitchen, bathroom or throughout the home so for me the only choice is the colour.

We recommend ordering a sample to check the colour in the final location as screens can display colours differently. If you can’t find the correct colour or are trying to match a specific paint, RAL or Pantone colour get in touch and we can create a custom sample for you.

Looking for a picture or a pattern?

If you want to have your favourite family photos blown up and use for your splashback we can help you with that, alternatively, you can choose from millions of stock images available on the many stock sites which can also be printed on your splashback. If you want to make a custom pattern to match your decor speak to our design team as anything is possible. Needs advice on measuring and installing? Check out our handy guides here.

Are acrylic splashbacks heat resistant?

Acrylic splashback panels melt at high temperatures or from exposure to direct flames. The melting point for most Perspex plastics is 160 degrees Celcius, so they cannot withstand extreme temperatures. We recommend using our Glass Splashbacks which will withstand any heat.

Can I put acrylic splashbacks behind a hob?

Not if it is gas or electric. You will need a gap of 50mm between an induction hob and the acrylic.

How do you fit an acrylic splashback?

While we suggest you hire a professional to fit any of our splashbacks, it is possible to fit our splashbacks yourself. To do so, you will require an adhesive, and finish with a neutral cure silicone to seal along where your splashback meets any surface.

What is the difference between glass and acrylic splashbacks?

Our glass splashbacks give a clearer light transmission allowing you to see the colour on the glass. They are traditional for splashbacks as they are able to withstand higher temperatures, though aren’t as shatter-resistant as acrylic splashbacks.  

How do you clean an acrylic splashback?

Keeping your acrylic splashback panels clean and hygienic is easy to maintain, as all that is required is warm soapy water and a microfibre cloth.

Can you cut a custom hole for plug sockets?

We are able to accommodate any requirements you may need. You can customise your splashback when ordering. For plug sockets, select the Cut-Outs option and explain where your plug socket is. For more assistance contact us at info@cutmyplastic.co.uk.

I love the cut acrylic that now sits on top of the desk where I'm typing this review. The curve at the front is cut beautifully and achieves exactly the result I was hoping for.

Perfect colour match for an unusual colour, gives the finishing touch to my bathroom.

Looks very good and was very easy to drill and fit. I used fine sand paper to smooth the edges.

My order was a very small one, but it was dealt with in the same way I would expect a huge order to be dealt with, as being 'very important'. I had felt a little nervous asking for the specific size I needed, but it was absolutely no problem. I was kept updated with delivery etc, and when my order arrived the packaging was unbelievably good. What I ordered was an MDF board which needed to be an exact size to fit in a specific place to accommodate my Doll's House. It was perfect. Really pleased, and grateful. Thank you.
