Your kitchen is often said to be the heart of the home. A multi-purpose space that is used numerous times a day, it’s important that this room not only looks good, but also performs well. The kitchen needs to be easy to keep clean whilst remaining practical, as it can be subjected to a lot of daily wear and tear.

Tiles are a great option for the kitchen and can be used in a variety of ways. With potential to be used on the floor, on the walls, or as a decorative splashback, there are endless ways to create a visually appealing look without going overboard on budget. There’s a lot to think about when it comes to tiling your kitchen, so we have created this blog post to help you consider the different options and to help you find the perfect kitchen tile!

Planning Your Kitchen Tiles

You can be as creative as you like with tiles in your kitchen. You might choose to tile all four walls in a light neutral colour, or perhaps you might like to tile the floor with large-format slabs for maximum cleanliness and to create an enlarged sense of space. Even if you’re not a keen cook, it’s likely that you’ll spend a lot of time in your kitchen, as will the rest of your family. Pets, muddy boots, messy food and high heels are all things to take into account when choosing your kitchen flooring, and floor tiles offer an extremely durable, long-lasting solution to these concerns as well as looking beautifully modern.

Pattern and Colour in the Kitchen

Another fun way to bring tiles into your kitchen is to opt for a splashback behind your hob and sink areas, as this not only provides a practical solution from any splashes or spillages, but also presents the opportunity for you to inject some personality into your scheme through colour and pattern!

Easy To Clean and Maintain

Splashed, dirty and flaking walls and floors can make your kitchen go from chic to shabby in no time. By incorporating tiles into your kitchen, you can keep your home looking sparkling clean and fresh. Oils and grease can irreparably damage hardwood and natural stone flooring, but tiles can reduce the risk of staining as well as being more hardwearing than timber.
