Contemporary tiling for the kitchen

Contemporary tiling for the kitchen can be a challenge to get right, as styles and trends are often changing. Currently, the emphasis is on minimal design, but what does this mean for kitchen tiling? And how can you achieve the right visual and practical results for a stylish and high-end kitchen?

Effective options for contemporary tiling for the kitchen

Choosing contemporary tiling options for your kitchen space can be an effective way to stylise your kitchen, and create a stunning visual effect. Different options to achieve this include:

  • Using large format tiles- one of the latest contemporary tiling trends involves using large format tiles for both floors and walls, especially in the kitchen. This can have a strong visual impact, with the joins between tiles barely visible. Why not opt for the same grout colour to minimize any potential contrast, and choose neutral colours for a classic, timeless effect?
  • Using timber effect floor tiles- another current trend for tiling involves using timber effect floor tiles. These are designed to look just like a hardwood floor, and for contemporary kitchens this can be a stunning design choice. Available in a range of colours, from greys and blues, to browns and creams, this is sure to suit any kitchen design.
  • Using the right tiling layout- currently, grid tiling layouts for the whole kitchen are popular for contemporary spaces. This is even used effectively for creating a tiling feature wall or splash back area, as a contrasting grout colour is used to add character and to attract attention.
