Kitchen Floor Tiles
Kitchen tiling offers many advantages. As well as making the room look aesthetically pleasing, tiling also serves a purpose of giving you surfaces which are easy to keep clean.
Whether you are carrying out a complete refurbishment on your kitchen or just some subtle upgrades; tiling is something that can transform your kitchen.
There are many things that need to be taken into consideration when tiling a kitchen. If the room is smaller then most, it is wise to use a lighter colour wall tile to give the impression of more space. The same can apply for the floor tiles as well.
Another factor is the size of the tiles, some kitchens lend themselves to a larger style of tile, whilst others are more suited to a smaller design. Patterned tiles are another consideration too. There are so many variables that the best way for us to be able to advise you is by carrying out a survey where we can clearly discuss the most suitable options for you and your family.
Kitchen Wall Tiles
There are many tiles that are suitable for a kitchen splash back. These include:
- Ceramic tiles, which are frequently used for kitchen and hallway flooring.
- Glazed tiles. These are only suitable for walls.
- Mosaic Tiles are great for kitchen walls and flooring, they add a wonderful feature and enhance the look of any kitchen.
- Natural stone.
There are many options available when it comes to choosing what tiles to select for your kitchen. At Leicester Tiling Solutions we are here to make the process as simple as possible for you.
Porcelain kitchen tiles are the perfect choice when it comes to flooring in a kitchen or dining room. They are an upgrade of normal ceramic tiles, and are a lot harder wearing which is perfect in a kitchen where things are likely to get spilt on the floor. There is also the added advantage with Porcelain Tiles that you can select them either glazed or unglazed, so there will be a style for everyone taste.
Should backsplash tiling be lighter than the worktop?
It is normally a good option to use a contrasting colour, so if your kitchen worktops or units are dark, then opting for a lighter colour tile design will give you a lovely contrast and make your kitchen feel light and airy.
If you have light units or worktops then it can be nice to break up the neutral finish by adding some dark colour. The perfect way to do this is with dark tiles, which will bring some more depth to your kitchen.
What do you put between the worktops and tiles?
A silicone bead is required between the worktop and the wall tiles. This can be completed using an appropriate colour sealant, and when installed by a professional the bead will finish off the surface perfectly.
Silicone is required as unlike grout it is flexible, and therefore will not crack over time.
