Kerr & Coles Specify an Options Calacatta Statuario Splashback


A marble splashback was the ideal feature to complement the cement floor in Amy’s kitchen project but with a tight budget, she wanted an effective, realistic-looking alternative, and found it in a Bushboard Options splashback.

Having already used Bushboard products in a shower room design on a bathroom supplier’s recommendation, she was keen to try a kitchen surface. Bushboard Options splashbacks are available to match worksurfaces, but can also make a statement installed as a standalone feature.

“Bushboard was a great option, and I instantly knew it was what I should use instead of tiles,” says Amy, owner and lead interior designer for Kerr and Coles Interiors. “The designs are super stylish and Calacatta Statuario really works perfectly alongside the flooring.”


The space was designed for Amy’s client, inspired by a simple image on Pinterest featuring a seating area set against the backdrop of a large, but simple, marble splashback.

Amy chose an Options marble effect splashback in Calacatta Statuario decor to create a realistic marble effect that lives up to the polish of the micro cement flooring and newly renovated kitchen, without the cost of real marble.

“Using the Options splashback has so many advantages over tiles or glass,” comments Amy. “It’s easy and cost effective to fit as you don’t need to bring in a tiler. This splashback was up in just a few hours, which is what you need in a big renovation when time is money.”

Bushboard Options splashbacks are fitted straight onto the wall using BB Complete, with no need for grout, specialist equipment or dedicated fitters – making it easy to apply and maintain in any space.


Amy says her clients are pleased with their Options splashback and happy with how easy it is to keep clean, and as a designer she will continue to recommend it to clients.

She says, “My clients are pleased with the finish and happy with how easy it is to keep clean! We had an estate agent visit the property to value the renovation, and he thought the splashback was marble. He wondered how we got such a big piece down the stairs.”
