TILE UP­DATE

Your Home and Garden - - Workshop -

If your splash­back is dated or dam­aged, re­plac­ing it with tiles

can make a big im­pact for a moder­ate spend. There are lots of on­line tu­to­ri­als about how to re­move old tiles and grout, but if this is a job for a tradie and you have a tight bud­get, choos­ing a cheaper tile will help to keep

costs un­der con­trol.

You can’t go wrong with sub­way tiles and a nice dark grey or black grout (darker grout is much more prac­ti­cal). Sim­ple white sub­way tiles come in many dif­fer­ent sizes and styles, but if white isn’t for

you there are some great stain­less-steel or sil­ver op­tions which will still give your kitchen that in­dus­trial look. Glass pan­els with a sub­way tile de­sign printed onto them give the same look with

a cheaper price tag.
