Kitchen & Splashback Tiles
Versatile & Durable
Of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen is where it all happens. Kitchen renos and builds can be expensive, but you should never dial back the budget on your tiles.
How to choose the best kitchen tiles
Whether you’re transforming your kitchen or starting from scratch, it’s important to first consider how you use your kitchen and which surfaces will require tiles. Exploring different tile design ideas can help make choosing tiles easier. Benchtop tiles, for example are gaining in popularity and can enhance your kitchen if applied correctly.
The kitchen is one of the only rooms in the house that can get away with using different types of tiles. Your floor tile can differ greatly from your splashback. But with so much choice, here are a few things to think about:
Tile size and application
A popular kitchen tile trend is using oversized rectangular tiles, which creates a big statement and also requires less joints. Depending on the look you’re going for, consider laying smaller rectangular tiles vertically for a modern look, or stick to a traditional grid pattern for a more conservative look. Even little 150x150mm square tiles are making a comeback.
If you decide on a tiled splashback, why not make it a feature by laying your tiles in a pattern like brickbond, herringbone, chevron or use shapes such as hexagons or fish scale tiles to really make your kitchen stand out.
