What are the considerations for choosing grid tiling for your kitchen?
Grid tiling can be very effective in any kitchen. As long as you take care with the design choices. Some potential options for your kitchen could include:
- Background tiling- Using the grid pattern tiling layout as background tiling can be very effective. The grid pattern itself is fairly plain and neutral, which means that feature walls or border tiles can be used on top of the blank background created by the grid tiling. In the kitchen, this will also allow your cabinets and design choices to stand out.
- Create a feature– You can use grid tiling to create a feature wall or feature area in any kitchen. From patterned tiles in a grid pattern for a stylish traditional kitchen, to monochrome or colourful grid tiling features in a contemporary kitchen, there are numerous options. Why not use a contrasting grout colour to accentuate the grid pattern itself, and make each square tile stand out?
- Floor and wall- Grid tiling is versatile and flexible, and can be used effectively on both floors and walls to create the desired effect. Whether its a stunning feature, or a plain background, grid tiling can be very effective
