Choosing the right kitchen flooring or wall tiles doesn’t have to stress you out; however, it does take some careful consideration. It can be overwhelming to see the wide range of tile options available, but with the right guidance you can choose kitchen tiles that enhance, upgrade, or complement your home décor. Whether you’re doing a complete spring renovation or sprucing up an old look, the following tips are a great place to get started!
What Area Are the Tiles for?
One of the first things to consider before you choose tiles for your kitchen is where they are going to be applied. Are you choosing tiles for the floor? Are you designing the backsplash with new tiles? Or are you covering the walls? Depending on the placement of the tiles, you will need to consider the colour, texture, material, and design.
Work with Colour Selections and Patterns
There are endless design ideas you can choose from when upgrading your kitchen. You can work with colour selections that complement the room or opt for a completely unique pattern that gives you a lively and creative feel. One popular design for the kitchen are natural stone tiles, such as granite, slate, or marble, as found in the Motion and Rome collections. These are luxurious and distinctive, and every tile looks unique. You can even get ceramic and porcelain tiles with designs that resemble natural stone. Looking for subway designs for your backsplash tiles? Color Market provides these unique patterns and offers a wide variety of colours to choose from.
Consider the Textures
Glossy and metallic tiles reflect light and expand the size of the room from a visual standpoint. Magical incorporates both gloss and metallic for a luxurious look. Some of the tiles in this collection are raised off the walls to give the room dimension and character. If you love the look of wood but don’t want to deal with stains and organic material breakdown, consider Explorer or Opus, which mimic the look of natural wood but come with the benefits of porcelain tile.
Need Slip Resistance?
Wet areas like your backyard, kitchen, or bathroom need floor tiles that are slip resistant. If you choose glossy tiles for these areas, you will run into a very hazardous situation that is dangerous for anyone who walks into the room. Consider this when you are choosing tiles. A great option for wet areas are ceramic tiles like Azuleja Gap, as they provide a solid grip in wet areas. They are stain, scratch, fire, and slip resistant; they are easy to clean; they can be used on both floors or walls; and they won’t fade from sunlight.
