Since 2007 PimpYourKitchen has been producing custom design and photographic splashbacks on their specially developed laminated material. A Pimp Flexible splashback is simply ordered online through our website with the dimensions needed for your kitchen. We will design your splashback with the image of your choice, either from our collection or an image or idea that you provide us with. The Pimp Flexible splashback will be packed in a sturdy cardboard tube and sent to you by mail. You can apply the splashback in your kitchen yourself using wallpaper adhesive, for this we've created a detailed usermanual PDF and there's an online instruction video available or you can pay a wallpaper hanger tradesman to come and do it for you.
Pimp Flexible splashback material
Pimp Flexible splashbacks are made out of a high-quality latex-based paper printed with pigmented ink.
This paper is laminated on one side. The laminate contains a UV-filter, which keeps the colours fresh. Our splashbacks have a thickness of approximately 0.5 mm and can be cut easily, in case of sockets or switches on the back wall.
A Pimp Flexible splashback in one piece can have virtually any length, with a maximum height of 115 cm.
For technical reasons we can only produce and deliver rectangular shaped splashbacks. In case of differences in height (distance from worktop to cupboards and to extractor hoods, for example) you can order the total length x the tallest height. Let us know the details of your kitchen and we will adjust the design to fit your kitchen in the best possible way. If you have doubts on the dimensions to enter for your order, don't hesitate to e-mail us your question on: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pimp Flexible splashback will be delivered on the ordered dimensions, rolled up in a sturdy cardboard tube. In case of height differences or sockets on the back wall, you can cut the splashback to size using a sharp knife. We don't make these cuts beforehand, however we can design your splashback to have no vital parts of the image in areas that you need to cut into. When you send us all relevant details of your kitchen we will fit the image to match your kitchen in the best possible way.
You can clean your splashback with a soft cloth with multi-purpose cleaner or soap. Do not use the following substances when cleaning your splashback: solvents, degreasing agents, bleaching agents, resin removers, abrasive cleaners.
Every PimpYourKitchen splashback is self-extinguishing (flame spread classification class A, based on ASTM E84 method).
PimpYourKitchen gives you a 5-year guarantee that the image of your splashback will stay colourfast.
Applying the splashback
The surface, to which you wish to attach your splashback, should be solid, dry, and free from dust and grease. Irregularities on the surface will be visible when the splashback is installed. With your splashback order you will receive the right amount of adhesive to pretreat and apply the design onto a smooth plastered wall. Each splashback also comes with a piece of test material and you will receive a copy of our usermanual by e-mail. It can also be downloaded from our website here: usermanual PDF.
We also have an instruction video online, where you can see our handyman Bram installing a Pink Tulips Pimp Flexible splashback. You can see the preparations and how to cut out spacing for sockets. In this video the splashback is installed with wallpaper adhesive on a smooth plastered wall. After that the edges are sealed of with transparent silicon sealant.
The lead time for a Pimp Flexible splashback is normally 3 to 4 weeks. Once a splashback design has been approved and is ordered and paid for, we will start the production. The splashback will be ready to ship from Europe 1-2 weeks after that.
Our Pimp Flexible splashbacks are shipped (rolled up in a sturdy cardboard tube), to the address you stated as the delivery address. We will send it through DHL from Europe, which has proven to offer reliable and swift service. When the splashback has been shipped, we will notify you by e-mail, with a tracking code for your package. Delivery time to New Zealand and Australia on average takes about 10-12 working days. On occasion it may take them longer. Unfortunately we can't control delivery once the package has been sent, so bear with us if it takes a bit longer to arrive.
