Review from our client 6 years after installation!
GOOD BYE GROUT CLEANING HELLO FREE TIME:
I decided to renovate two bathrooms but somehow keep an old fashioned feel about it. When I priced the purchase of tiles and the cost of a tiler versus the acrylic splashback I found no difference so I decided to take a chance on the splashback. I am so glad I did. I have combined the old and new together and it looks great and it's so easy to clean.
I decided to go with Innovative Splashbacks because they custom make your splashback and I mean custom make it. (Size, colour and recessed shower shelf). Dealing with Elli was a breeze. Any hiccup we encountered wasn't a problem for Elli. She delivered what we wanted.
I have had innovative splashbacks in my ensuite and kids bathroom for over 6 years now and it looks exactly like the day it was first installed. It so easy to keep clean the kids can do it. I have said good bye to keeping the old fashioned tile grout clean and hello to free time.
I am so glad I decided to use innovative splashback rather than following the trend of tiling from floor to ceiling.

Review from our client 18 months after installation
Top quality product and first rate customer service. Kitchen splash back has been in for 18 months - looks as good as new and is very easy to keep clean.
Elli couldn't have been more helpful in colour matching a "difficult" metallic colour for my splashback. Delighted with the results.
If you're thinking of using glass - don't! This is so much better.

DIY Acrylic Splashbacks
I chose Innovative Spashbacks for many reasons. Glass was too expensive and I would never attempt to install myself. Acrylic is easier to install than tiles and more forgiving when installing over the uneven and out of square surfaces I was faced with.
While measuring up with the friendly support of Innovative Splashbacks I had some reservations to DIY. But with their encouragement and helpful instruction guide I decided to give it a crack.
Despite ordering a custom colour I received all material within the week. I was very impressed with the standard of communication from both Innovative and their courier.
After a couple of practices cut with the test piece provided I was ready to go. I was surprised at how similar to timber the material was to work with. All my tools including jigsaw, circular saw, drills and plane worked well. Instructions call for a circular saw guide rail to assist with straight cuts while protecting painted surface from scratches. As I didn’t have one I made one from a $10 piece of melamine from Bunnings.
Some of the awkward shaped pieces around the window I decided to make a template out of 3mm MDF first. When it came to smoothing off the exposed edges I ran a plane over first to take off the rough surface prior to sanding with various grades of wet sand paper.
As recommended when bonding to the wall I used Bostik V60 silicone for acrylics and liquid nails for the stainless steel insert.
When it came to caulking the edges I found translucent very forgiving. The pros make caulking look ridiculously easy. I’m no pro but I eventually got into the rhythm of gunning silicone into the edges, spray of soapy water followed by removal of excess with rubber tools also found at Bunnings for $2.
I am very happy with the finish and all who have seen have complemented me on the job. I will definitely use Innovative Splashbacks in the future and recommend to others.

Acrylic Splashbacks - Boutique Accommodation
When we set out to establish our accommodation business Harmony at Tower Hill in South West Victoria we wanted to create a setting that was stylish, elegant and simple. Our objective was to have our clients accommodated in a relaxing and comfortable self-contained unit with all the luxurious appointments that would make their stay a pleasure. We settled on a full kitchen in a straight line design and had no hesitation in choosing Innovative Splashbacks.
The finish and quality of the product and workmanship sets off the features with many guests commenting that it makes them feel like they’re in a chef’s kitchen.
We called on Innovative Splashbacks for information and advice as to colours and installation.
Their response was always professional, friendly and above all helpful.
The product was always prompt, ready on time and packed securely for transport. To say that we’re delighted with the Innovative Splashbacks, their product and their service is an understatement and we have no hesitation in recommending them.

Printed Kitchen Splashback - W.A.
I am so pleased with my whole experience with Innovative Splashbacks.
After finding the photo I wanted from a local photographer, I started googling who would be able to print this onto a splashback for me.
All of my searches were coming up with glass options- which were proving very expensive; not only for the materials, but the transport, transit insurance (or the breakage risk if they didnt offer it!) and installation as well.
I had never thought of printing onto acrylic, I didn't even know it was possible until I started searching for alternative materials.
Innovative Splashbacks ticked all my boxes:
- A quality product
- Cut to size (including powerpoint cutout)
- Very reasonable shipping- because of it's durability, it cost me less to ship it across the country than a glass version would have cost to come down from Perth!
- Quick turnaround
- Way less chance of breakage during transit
- Super easy install that didn't require a glazier (it came with a DIY guide and my builder happily installed it for me)
Elli was fantastic, she offered a very personalized service and liaised with both the photographer and my builder to organise everything. She kept me updated at every step along the way and even chased up the shipping for me to ensure it had arrived on time.
I now have the most beautiful bespoke piece in my kitchen that makes the whole place an entertainer's dream. Something this unique and beautiful will guarantee a quick and easy sale or lease of my property in the future too.
I cannot recommend these guys enough!!

From the moment of sending through a query to the moment of completing the installation I received the friendliest and most helpful attention which made the experience very easy. I would recommend if you want to install a splashback in your home to use Innovative Splashback. The attention to detail was superior and the support along the way provided me and my partner with the courage to install the splashback in my kitchen - it was the first time I had ever used this material. Thank you Elli and the team.

Will be recommending you to others.

My wife and my self were looking at updating our bathrooms. One of the main things we wanted to change was grout lines. They never seem to stay nice no matter how often you clean them.
We looked at putting up glass splash back but really wasn't in our price range. We then looked into different types of paneling for the wet areas.
We finally found acrylic panels, there are a couple of companies that supply the panels, but only one that had larger than 2400 x 1200 sheet size. This made it possible for us to have full sheets instead of having to have 2 panels on the wall.
The finished result was fantastic, the service we received was second to none. We are more then happy with innovative Splashbacks.
