What are the important considerations when choosing tiles for a kitchen renovation?

There are a number of important considerations to bear in mind when choosing the tiles for your kitchen renovation. These considerations include:

  • The colour of the tiles- the colour of the tiles you choose will play an important role in the overall colour scheme, and visual result, of the kitchen itself. Light and bright tiles can direct light around the kitchen, which is especially important for smaller kitchen spaces, but dark tile colours can also be effective in certain spaces. You can also consider using alternating tiling colours and creating a features space with a contrasting or complementary tile colour.
  • The design of the space- the interior design style of your kitchen should determine your tile choices. For a contemporary space you will want to create a kitchen that is sleek and smooth with little to no embellishments. This means that plain tiles are more effective, as well as natural effect tiles like stone or timber effect. On the other hand, for a more traditional kitchen space, patterns and small details can be more important. And this can be reflected in your tiling choices.
