What are the most effective kitchen island tiling options?

Tiles can be used in a number of different ways to visually define your kitchen. The kitchen island is one of the central features for the kitchen space and tiles can be used to really set your kitchen island apart. The most effective tiling options here include:

  • Tiling the top of the kitchen island – tiling the top of the kitchen can be a practical decision as well as one that adds visual design. Using large format tile panels can allow you to use just the single slab for the whole countertop. As a result you can create a stone effect or even a marble effect kit gen island. In addition, tiles for the work surface can be very durable and hard-wearing as well as being easy to clean and maintain. 
  • Tiling the front of the kitchen island – alternatively you can tile the front of the kitchen island, known as the kitchen island back splash. This is a tiling space that can be used to create a stylish and visually interesting feature in any kitchen, contemporary or traditional.
