The AGA has become one of the most iconic traditional cookers, first appearing in kitchens from the 1920’s and is now populating more than 750,000 homes across the world. With the cooker being a classic kitchen statement, having the right splashback to complement both your AGA and interior is an important task.
Aga Cookers and Hand-Painted Tiles
There’s a long tradition of using hand-painted tiles in the splashback. behind an Aga cooker. Handmade tiles offer durability combined with a uniquely created design. These days, however, you can achieve the hand-painted look with custom printed tiles for your Aga cooker’s splashback.
Bespoke Tiles Behind Your Aga Cooker

Splashback Design Considerations
The splashback of your kitchen is one of the most important design details in your kitchen. You’ll want to take the time to consider what type of aesthetic you’d like to create behind your Aga cooker, which will affect the overall look of your kitchen. Here are a few things to keep in mind when designing the splashback area behind your Aga:
- What is the overall style of your kitchen? Is your kitchen modern, traditional, rustic or contemporary? This is the first consideration; you’ll want your design, pattern and colour choices to reflect your entire kitchen’s style. For example, if you have a rustic kitchen, you might consider a country mural behind your Aga cooker. Maybe you have a more contemporary kitchen; in this case, you could consider a more modern design of marble tiles, in a colour that fits in with your countertops, cabinets and flooring. Consider the overall style of your kitchen to ensure that your Aga cooker’s splashback fits in, to create the unique, charming kitchen of your dreams.
- Will, you only be designing the space over your cooker, or will you be designing the entire backsplash area of your kitchen? Will you want the design and colours behind your Aga to be the focus? You’ll want to ensure the design and colours on the digitally printed tiles blend in with your current splashback and countertops. Also, do the patterns and colours of the unique tiles blend in with your floor and cabinets? You’ll want to make sure that your entire kitchen forms a beautiful combination between your Aga cooker and it’s splashback with the rest of your kitchen.
- Colour or neutral bespoke splashback tiles? With digitally printed tiles, you can choose any type of colour you prefer, just as you can with hand-painted tiles. When choosing a design or a neutral tone, again consider the effect you’d like to create in your entire kitchen…

Is your kitchen more contemporary, then another option would be patterned tiles with a Moorish or Mediterranean design, in one or more colours to complement your overall kitchen.
