What are the most effective Moroccan style tiling options for any kitchen?
A Moroccan tile is one that is moulded twice before it is fired. This first time allows the design to be inlaid, while the second allows the clay to fill and this also creates a contrasting effect. Real Moroccan tiles are hard to come by but Moroccan style tiles are becoming increasingly popular, and these can be used in any kitchen in a variety of ways, including:
- Under-counter tiling– for kitchens with tiles underneath the top cabinets but above the worktop space, Moroccan style tiling can be very effective. To get the most out of this, you will need to consider the colours of these tiles, and how this relates to the colour scheme of your kitchen overall. For a bold visual effect you could opt for bright and vibrant patterned tiles. However, for a more understated style you could opt for more neutral tones or terracotta’s.
- Splash back tiling- for tiles in a smaller space such as those above the sink, Moroccan tiles can add a touch of inspiration and colour brightening up your kitchen space. In addition, because this is in one confined area, the overall effect is more understated, which can be very visually effective.
- Combining these with other design features- for a stunning effect overall you should be sure to combine these tiles with other design features around the kitchen to create a cohesive result. This could include terracotta style floor tiling and kitchen cabinets with a more rustic charm.
