2nd march

If you’re looking for a simple way to add some serious style and class to your kitchen, it may be worth considering one of the many tiling styles that influence designers, far and wide.

While the idea of using tiling in the kitchen is fairly traditional, it’s certainly not an idea that has got old or gone out of fashion. With the wide range of tiling styles and designs available now, you’ll have the freedom to create a look that is as modern or traditional as you like!

Styling with tiles: Top design ideas for 2015

Single colour simplicity – For a simple and classic look, why not choose one colour and tile backsplashes or countertops with the tile of your choice? One thing we love about this simple tiling style is that it can be easily tailored to your own style and personality – it’s all about picking the right colour and texture to reflect your needs.

Metallic luxe – For a dramatic effect and focal point in your kitchen, we recommend thinking outside of the box and opting for metallics. They’re a great choice for those seeking a modern, minimalist look and add a touch of luxury to your dining space too.

Natural touch – You can find so many tiles inspired by natural materials like wood, brick and concrete, all available in warm earthy tones and neutrals. These are great for adding an organic, homely touch to your kitchen and help to create that rustic, farmhouse kitchen look.

Retro rules – Remember those terracotta and lemon infused kitchens, reminiscent of Mediterranean style? Well that’s exactly what we’re talking about!

There’s a wide range of retro tiles available in those rich, deep colours, featuring organic textures from years gone by. This look is great for homeowners looking to inject some warmth and Mediterranean style into their kitchen.

Creative colours– A popular way to style your kitchen tiles is by using a carefully selected range of colours that together form a complementary colour scheme.

For example, blues, greys and blacks work well together, as does the monochrome look. Alternatively for something more shabby chic you could opt for a range of pretty pastel shades.
