When it comes to creating a stunning kitchen, there are a couple of important things to consider. From the style and layout, to the cabinets and the fixtures, kitchen design can take a lot of planning. But one thing you shouldn’t overlook is kitchen tiling. Especially as tiling can be used to create stunning and interesting visual features across your kitchen. Kitchen splashbacks are often tiled for practical as well as aesthetic reasons. And a diagonal tiling layout can be an effective choice for this. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling professionals. And this is our guide to using diagonal tiling for your kitchen splashback.
Diagonal tiling for your kitchen splashback
Diagonal tiling involves turning square tiles 45 degrees, so that one corner is at the bottom. Laying square tiles at this unusual angle can bring a range of advantages, including:
- Drawing attention- because the tiling pattern created is unusual and interesting, attention is likely to be drawn to our kitchen splashback. You could even consider using a different grout colour to allow the tiles shape, and layout, to really stand out and catch the eye.
- Design flexibility- diagonal tiling can include plain matt tiles, plain gloss tiles, patterned tiles, textured tiles or any combination of the these together. This means that this tiling layout can suit a range of kitchen designs and styles, including traditional and contemporary kitchens. Simply choose the tiles that match your design theme.
- Timeless- this tiling layout is not associated with a tiling trend, or used as part of a passing trend. In fact, it’s been used for many years, without fading out of popularity. So you wont have to worry about the longevity of your kitchen splashback, as diagonal tiling is here to stay.
