Choosing tiles for a country style kitchen


Your kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home. And while this may not be the case for some households, it certainly is for many others. And that is why country style kitchens are designed to be warm, welcoming, and relaxing environments. So when choosing tiles for a country style kitchen, you should focus on these principles. As the right tiling, and tiling features, can make or break or kitchen theme. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to choosing tiles for a country style kitchen.

Floor tiles

Kitchen floor tiling is a practical choice. After all, your kitchen floor needs to be fully waterproof, to deal with any spills and leaks, as well as being incredibly durable. And tile will beat lino or vinyl, as well as carpet every time. So when choosing floor tiles, especially for a country kitchen, you should consider the colour. Country kitchens want to be warm and welcoming, so choose a deep rich colour, that also evokes warmth. Like terracotta or beige’s and browns.  Patterned tiles can also be effective. Especially if you choose a traditional floral pattern with these warm colours.

Wall tiles

Just like your flooring, your walls also need to be waterproof. At least in part. Especially around the cooker and the sink, as these are where spills and splashes are most likely to occur. Wall tiles in a country kitchen can range from black to white, and everywhere in between. Green is often a good colour in a country kitchen, as it evokes a sense of calm and relaxation. While orange or even terracotta, can be warm, bright and welcoming.

You also have a choice about the type of tile you choose. Metro tiles can be used very effectively, but so can square or hexagonal wall tiles.
