What are the effective options for contemporary textured tiles for the kitchen?
If you’re creating a stylish contemporary kitchen space, tiles are one of the most important considerations because these are extremely practical, and because they can have a significant visual impact on the space. Using textured tiles can be a highly effective option for kitchens of all styles but how can you create the right visual effect for a contemporary kitchen space? Well there are a number of effective options, including:
- Using natural effect tiling- natural effect tiling includes tiles designed specifically to look like stone or timber. These are both naturally textured in terms of visual effect, and the tiles that mimic these stay true to this to achieve the best visual result. As a result, using stone effect floor tiles, or timber effect floor tiles, adds visual texture to any contemporary kitchen space. These tiles are also very effective for contemporary kitchens, where natural visual features are an important part of the design.
- Using tiles with a visible texture – tiles with a visual texture usually do not also have a physical texture but they are instead finished or patterned in such a way that depth is given to the tiles and these have a 3D visual effect. This can be an effective option in a contemporary kitchen as these tiles can be applied in just one smaller area, like a feature wall, to add character and interest to your contemporary kitchen space. These tiles are also available in a wide range of colours so that you can choose the best option for your kitchen.
- Using tiles with a sleek texture- finally the most common texture that is associated with contemporary kitchen spaces is smooth and sleek. Tiles with a solid colour, high gloss finish can be very effective for this.
