Upstands and splashbacks

Depending on the style and aesthetic you’re looking for, upstands and splashbacks provide elegance and practicality.

Upstands are a vertical extension of the worktop to protect the wall from splashes and spills, whereas a splashback covers a greater area, extending the luxurious look of your worksurface and providing a practical and hygienic finish to the countertop areas, with a seamless visual flow across the surfaces and blending into the wall cabinets.
