Tiling your home is a great way to add character, warmth and personality to your home. From the hallway to the bathroom, tiles can be used in any room to achieve a stunning visual effect. But one of the most traditional places to use tiles is in the kitchen. Their natural water resistance and hard wearing qualities make tiles a much better option than carpet or lino. Here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to tiling ideas for your kitchen floor.
Stone effect floor tiles
Your kitchen floor tiles can really emphasize your style or theme. If you have a rustic kitchen, or a contemporary kitchen, stone effect floor tiles could be a fantastic option. Designed to look like natural stone, stone effect floor tiles are perfect for kitchens where a neutral floor is necessary.
Timber effect floor tiles
Designed to look like a real hard wood floor, but with all the benefits of tile instead, timber effect floor tiles are a fantastic choice for a wide range of kitchen styles and designs. Contemporary kitchens fitted with timber effect floor tiles can add a sense of warmth and character, while rustic kitchens will find that timber effect floor tiles fully suit the existing natural theme.
If you want your kitchen floor to stand out, rather than blend in, you might be looking for something a little bit different. Checkerboard tiling is a tiling pattern create by laying square tiles, diagonally, in alternate contrasting colours. Traditionally, this would have been only in black and white, but other colours have since been combined to fantastic effect. This is a tiling style that can really bring out the “traditional” in a traditional kitchen.
Hexagonal floor tiles
For a tiling layout and pattern that will really stand out, why not opt for hexagonal tiles? These combine together to make a honeycomb pattern that can suit the most contemporary of kitchens, as well as the most traditional. Hexagonal tiles create a versatile tiling layout, perfect for a wide range of kitchens.
