Dramatic Effect in the Kitchen

The kitchen is also a great place to experiment with darker colour palettes. Tiles such as our Tiffany Dark Tile creates a dramatic tonal feature wall inspired by exposed brickwork. It offers a wonderful variation of tone and texture, providing a talking point for when guests come to visit. Pair with a marble worktop and wooden textures to soften the look without overpowering the space – a perfect way to embrace the modern gothic trend.
