Tip 1: Choosing your DIY Acrylic Splashback, Bonethane & Supplier.
Before you buy any product enquire how long the company has been trading? Is the company you’re dealing with using copycat tactics from other websites to lure you in.
Do they state they use the highest-grade Acrylic and piggy back off the manufactures credibility, yet lack to explain how their coating conforms, bonds and weathers with the material?
Are their warranties & testimonials worthy? Do they cover structural defects, coatings delaminating, UV warranties?
Are you choosing the right splashback category for your intended environment application? Do you require to prep wall prior to install & do their products leave a ripple effect after placement because of the quality of the material?
Are the install instructions simplified? Does the supplier hide hidden disclaimers regarding the application of their product and process of their products? All very important questions before you make your decision.
Tip 2: What grade of material do you require for your DIY project?
Do you require Acrylic Splashbacks for your project, Bonethane Polymer Splashback or toughened glass?
Tip 3 Pick a budget and Splashback that covers you and check hidden disclaimers
Pick a budget & choose a substrate that appeals to you. With so many beautiful products to choose from, it should really come down to what you are prepared to pay and what you can get for your money keeping safety in mind.
Once you have made this decision you can address the next stage. Function and colour are key requirements, with the vast categories available there is an impressive range to suit each person. Once you have narrowed your choice to budget you need to look at durability and the warranties it covers. When you make your choice on your Splashback it is important to factor in the warranty and any disclaimers. It may mean you need to spend a little bit more to get the utmost use and longevity for your splash space.

Tip 4 Colour choice
Colour Choice. Before you choose your coloured splashback, you need to take a step back and look at the total area you are working with. Most companies will offer a standard set colour range with each category, whilst other companies offer unlimited colour range effects and digitally printed processes with protective backings.
When choosing your splashback, consider the colours of your walls, kitchen doors, counter tops and most importantly the level of light in the space you are working with. Splashback sheets can take on a different colour lying flat to sitting upright because of the high gloss finish.

Tip 7 Joins, where should they go?
Joins in a splashback. Question where your joins appear. You should create joins in areas where other seams appear this keeps the look symmetrical. These areas can be dressed with joining strips to create a uniformed finish. Other visually rewarding looks are the custom filler EFX as seen below. ISPS designs our filler EFX based on the colour of your project. These fillers are designed to run through the course of the sheet, vertically or horizontally capturing the colour palette. Because they are uniformed to blend with your splashback & appliance colour choice it creates a platform for continuous length & unvarying finishes.
Tip 8 Cooktop. What do I place behind my cooktop?
Always be aware of what to place behind your cook top. For more information call ISPS Innovations on 08 8381 8880
