KITCHEN BACKSPLASH TILE
When it comes to choosing Kitchen Tile, the Backsplash Tile can really define a kitchen. Backsplash can blend, compliment, or offset a counter top and floor. Whether your counter top is natural wood, natural stone, fabricated stone, metal, slab, tile, or any other material, the backsplash tile area offers a great sense of dimension. It can open up the wall space, make a kitchen feel warm and cozy, bright and uplifting, sleek and modern, or subtle and calm. The sky is the limit when it comes to attractive backsplash tile options. If you like drama, employ some contrast. If you want more calm, get a color, size and pattern that does not clamor for attention. We carry a beautiful range of tiles to explore for your “splash.” You won’t be disappointed.
BACKSPLASH MATERIALS – A Starting Point
- Subway Tile. White subway tile is classic. Kitchens always look clean, open, and pulled together when white subway tile is used on the backsplash. Subway tiles are now available in ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, glass, and metal. You will also find more variety in sizes, edge styles (beveled), as well as many finishes (matte, glossy) and in a variety of colors.
- Mosaics. Available in every material under the sun, think glass mosaics, natural stone mosaics (i.e. travertine mosaics, marble mosaics, soapstone mosaics, granite mosaics and quartz mosaics), as well as ceramic mosaics, porcelain mosaics, and metal mosaics. Mosaics have a variety of shapes and sizes as well, including symmetrical, sticks, rounds, and asymmetrical. If you enjoy a smaller scale tile (generally speaking), and don’t mind a few grout lines, mosaics offer a huge world of creative possibility for tile backsplash designs.
- River Rock / Pebble Tile. Whether going for a natural, “earthy” look, or a modern, subtle, spare feel, but one that draws some organic warmth, consider river rock. The colors tend to range from black and grey to taupe and beige, but some range into the reddish-orange or blue-green highlights.
COUNTER TOPS / TILE COUNTERTOPS
Many people enjoy granite or quartz slabs for a kitchen countertop. This trend will continue. However, now that the range of options has widened for tile, there are many other attractive choices (in addition to natural stone slabs). CEMENT and CONCRETE-LOOK, LARGE FORMAT TILE COUNTERTOPS If you love cement or concrete countertops, check this out: you can now get extremely durable through-body porclain, in a large format tile, that looks like concrete and cement. Many of our tile lines have them, and they are so beautiful! So, for countertops this means:
- fewer grout lines
- a very hard, durable surface
- much easier to maintain
Cement-lovers will find many new choices for contemporary kitchens, but the look will also be enjoyed by those working with other styles, too. Cement is also becoming diversified. It is being blended with terra cotta and other types of surfaces for some great looking hybrid looks. Also check out the beautiful rustic stone tile, in either natural stone tile or porcelain tile, for a warm, earthy, elegant surface. Whether you use tile, stone, quartz, wood, or other material, the counter top will greatly define and influence the look of the kitchen. Choose a surface you enjoy working with — one that makes it easy and enjoyable to cook and prepare food on.
KITCHEN TILE FLOOR
When considering what to use for kitchen flooring, a kitchen tile floor is a no-brainer. Floor tile for the kitchen is durable, attractive, and even cost-effective compared to some other types of materials such as hardwoods. Tile flooring for the kitchen is much easier to clean up, too. The design possibilities are wide open. It’s just a matter of how large a tile you prefer, the material you want, and the type of design you prefer.
A few ideas to check out for a kitchen tile floor (see our flooring page):
- wood look tile
- large format tile
- cement and concrete look tile
- terra cotta look (cotto) porcelain
