Show me your splash back! White painted Kitchen with oak worktops needs an overhaul.

I've just inherited a kitchen. It has white painted shaker style doors and oak effect laminate worktops. L shaped, big window at the back of the room over the sink. Quite nice and light.
It currently has a very dated splashback, I've enquired with a professional painting company about having the tiles painted.
They are about 4" square, in stardard, lined up formation.
So a good paint job could be all that is needed to bring them bang up to date without spending a fortune.
I can't afford to replace anything right now.

I need ideas.
Walls are currently neutral. Blind is inherited too so can be changed. Back door is white. Floor tiles are ivory/very light stone coloured.

The whole thing screams BORING.

Has anyone any advice or experience of painted tiles and how well they wear / how long the finish lasts? I'm aware it may need redoing within a certain time frame.

Do you have any pictures?

Tile stickers are another possible alternative to painting. Ours look really good.

You could maybe get a stone/marble effect contact paper, one lady used it on the interior design challenge on the BBC a while back. I'm sure you can get contact paper in other styles though
