The Kitchen is the Heart of the Home

Whether it’s enjoying a quick breakfast in the morning before work or cooking the evening meal, you will find yourself spending quite a lot of your time at home in the kitchen. The modern kitchen can offer more than just a place for the preparation and cooking of food as many incorporate dining areas and even spaces in which to relax and unwind. The kitchen is therefore often a hub of activity and is invariably the gathering place when you have friends over to socialise, so it is important to create a design which is both stylish and practical. Creating the ideal look whilst also ensuring your kitchen is functional can take a certain amount of planning and preparation. There is no doubt, however, that tiles are the best choice for walls and floors in kitchens as they offer a durable covering and there are also a vast array of colours and styles to select from.

Why Tiles are such a popular choice for kitchens

Although other wall and floor materials are available, tiles remain the most popular choice for several reasons. On floors, they are able to withstand high levels of foot traffic and produce a surface which can be cleaned and maintained with ease. As a kitchen backsplash, tiles provide a covering which is far more resilient against damage from heat and moisture than other wall materials like paint and wallpaper. They can also protect the underlying substrate from food and grease spillages which are common in kitchens.

Kitchen Trends and Styles

If you have your heart set on a particular kitchen style then you can create the perfect look with the range of tiles available within this collection. For a contemporary kitchen style, you have a variety of options. If you have already decided upon the style of your cupboards and worktops then you can then establish which tiles complement them by ordering samples. Plain black, white and grey tiles are a sought after option for kitchen floors and can be matched with polished worktop surfaces. On walls, you could choose patterned tiles or even varieties with a popular brick style. Another look which is popular within kitchens is a farmhouse style which can be achieved with the use of natural stone tiles or wood effect porcelain. On walls, a rustic brick effect tile can add genuine character to farmhouse kitchen decors.
