All elements in your kitchen have an impact. Appliances, decorations, seating, etc. all contribute and aesthetic and functional piece of your kitchen space. However, there’s only one element that can instantly transform your kitchen from floor to ceiling: kitchen tiles.
The Perfect Kitchen Tiles For Your Home
Kitchen tiles are a major statement in any kitchen. Tiles can set the style, colour scheme and mood of the room. So, if you have a specific aesthetic in mind, selecting the kitchen tiles to match is key!
But for those new to kitchen design, feeling overwhelmed is easy. There are many types of tiles out there. Colours, finishes, sizes, prints and texture all vary from tile to tile. How can you know which kitchen tiles will work best for your space?
Here are some things you should think about when choosing the perfect kitchen tiles:
What is your aesthetic goal?
When you close your eyes and envision your dream kitchen, what does it look like? Is it warm and cozy or minimal and modern? What style of decor do you prefer around the rest of your home? Depending on your answer, you’ll be able to narrow down your tile search. You can incorporate smooth, glossy, matte or natural inspired textures depending on your decor style. The size and shape of your kitchen tiles of choice will also impact the overall look.

What colour scheme do you want to go for?
Ideally using the same colour scheme around your home works best. A unified colour scheme creates a harmonious feel. For this reason, you must define a colour scheme for your kitchen early on. Based on this you can select kitchen tiles to match. You can even try combining two different tiles within your colour palette for a unique design!
How big is your kitchen space?
Is your kitchen smaller than you’d like? Then choosing the right kitchen tiles is even more important. Very texturized or dark colour tiles can end up making your already small kitchen feel even smaller! Instead, opt for light colours and smooth finishes that will make your kitchen space feel more open and spacious.
How much maintenance can you afford to do?
How much time can you dedicate to cleaning your kitchen tiles? If you are often in a hurry a smooth tile is ideal for a quick wipe down. On the other hand, very texturized tiles can have small crevices that are harder to clean. But, if you have the time and want the look, it might be worth it. It’s all up to you.
