Inspiration for your kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home, so treat it with the respect it deserves and make it the focal point for all the family. Tiles can add contrast to cupboards and work surfaces or tie in neatly with your existing theme, becoming a seamless part of the decor. The benefit of tiles in the kitchen space go way beyond just hygiene and cleanliness, the variety of colour, size and design make them a versatile choice for any style of home.
Certain patterns and designs evoke images of a traditional or rustic scheme more vividly than others, such as hand painted designs or moulded tiles. Country scenes can be particularly evocative and large, decorative plaques take pride of place on many walls. There’s no hard and fast rule with this, as it’s up to you what effect you’d like to achieve. That being said, decorative drop in tiles look excellent amongst plain field tiles in a matching colour.
A fresh palette of white and blue works well with chrome brassware, and off whites and creams look great with brass. Don’t be afraid to mix and match with patterned tiles either – this can create a really homely feel that is sure to capture attention.
