When it comes to choosing and installing a new fitted kitchen, you’re options are often split into styles. From rustic, country kitchens, to traditional or contemporary kitchens, there are a range of styles to choose from. And of course, styles can also be blended too. But once you’ve settled on your perfect style, you will need to choose wall and floor options to complete your new room. So it is essential that you choose tiles to match. One of the most popular kitchen styles is the contemporary kitchen. So you need suitable tiles. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to kitchen tiles for a contemporary kitchen.

Kitchen tiles for a contemporary kitchen

Choosing tiles that will match your contemporary kitchen, isn’t always as easy as you might think. In fact, it can be quite complicated. You will need to consider:

  • the colour of your cabinets
  • the finish of your cabinets
  • the brightness of your room as a whole

The colour of your cabinets

You will want your tiles to complement your cabinets in order to create a well balanced, visually appealing room. However, you can still make some bold tile choices by using a contrasting colour to create a feature wall. Or even patterned tiles to add some visual depth to your kitchen.

The finish of your cabinets

Contemporary kitchens tend to be quite glossy and shiny. So the chances are your kitchen cabinets will have a gloss finish. Matt wall tiles can pair well with glossy cabinets, but glossy tiles are also very effective. If you want the ultra glossy effect, go for gloss wall tiles, and matt floor tiles.

The brightness of the room

The final consideration for choosing the right tiles is to consider how bright your kitchen is. If your kitchen is full of natural light, you could opt for darker, bolder tiles in darker shades. However, if your room is small or has limited light, use brighter, glossy tiles to reflect the light around the room.
