Kitchen trends are often changing and currently the industrial style kitchen is growing in popularity. But what is this design style? And which tile options can be a good fit? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about choosing the right tiles for your industrial style kitchen.

What is an industrial style kitchen?

Industrial style kitchens are growing in popularity currently and these are kitchens that embrace a rough or unfinished look. This means that bolts, brackets and hinges can all be exposed instead of hidden, as well as beams and pipework. However, these unfinished edges should be well designed and visually appealing. This is also about creating balance between the unfinished edges and sleek and stylish design. Tiles in an industrial style kitchen can be very important for creating the right visual effect.

What are the most effective tiling options for industrial style kitchens?

There are a number of effective tiling options to choose from when it comes to creating an industrial style kitchen. These include:

  • Large format stone effect tiles- large format stone effect floor tiles can be incredibly effective for an industrial style kitchen, especially if this is feigned to look like granite or large stone slabs to complement the industrial style.
  • Subway tiles- subway tiles that are a single plain colour without a contrasting grout colour  can be very effective for wall tiling in industrial kitchens. These can even be used effectively for feature wall tiling and tiling around the kitchen sink or window. 
  • Brick bond tiling- brick bond tiling involves installing tiles with one tile above the centre join of the two tiles below. This creates the effect of a brick wall which can be very visually striking in an industrial style kitchen. It is also sure to attract attention. For this you can opt again for subway tiles but textured stone effect tiles can be even more effective.
