Black and white tiling in the kitchen

Black and white tiling in the kitchen can be incredibly effective. And there are a range of options available for you to use these tiles to make a real statement. The options include:

  • tiling layouts
  • wall and floor combinations
  • tiling features

Tiling layouts

Black and white tiles can be laid in various patterns to create a stunning effect. For example:

  • the checkerboard tiling pattern can be perfect for kitchen floors. This involves laying square tiles on a diagonal, and alternating the colours across the kitchen. The advantage of this is that the eye is drawn to the very corners of the tiles, so your kitchen actually looks wider than it really is.
  • the grid tiling layout can be effective on kitchen walls. And by using a different colour tile, every third tile along, you will create a tiling pattern that is very effective.

Tiling features

Black and white tiling in the kitchen is the perfect for choice for creating a tiling feature. You could:

  • create a feature wall using the herringbone layout, alternating both black and white tiles
  • use black tiles for border tiles on an otherwise white wall
  • use the basket-weave layout to create a feature wall, alternating both the black and white tiles into the pattern
