Tiling in the kitchen is a sensible and practical decision. Tiles can be easily cleaned, they are easy to maintain, and they can be made waterproof, if they aren’t already naturally impervious. But choosing the right tiles for your kitchen can be a daunting prospect. In fact, the tiles you choose could make a big difference to the overall style and the appearance of the kitchen as a whole. You will have to consider the size, shape, colour, pattern, and finish of the tiles, in light of your chosen style. Matt tiles and gloss tiles are the two primary choices for kitchen tiles. So why would you choose glossy tiles? And how can you apply them effectively? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide using glossy tiles in the kitchen.
Using glossy tiles in the kitchen
Glossy tiles are tiles that have been finished with a coating of gloss. This means that they shine in the light, and reflect this same light around the room. This can be perfect for kitchens with limited natural light, as it makes the space feel brighter and lighter. Here are some tips to help you get the most from your glossy tiles:
- Glossy tiles can help to create a fantastic feature wall, when matt tiles are used in the rest of the space. This will mean that your feature wall shines and grabs the light, standing out from the duller matt tiles, drawing attention to your tiling feature.
- Glossy tiles on the floor can be slippy, unless they are also textured. So be careful of choosing gloss tiles for the kitchen floor, it could result in a fall.
- Glossy tiles suit either a contemporary or a traditional kitchen. The difference will come down to the style and pattern of the tiles themselves, rather than the finish.
