Inspiration for Choosing Kitchen Tiles

Your choice of tiling can make or break your entire kitchen. Whether you’re looking at subtle marble or bright bricking, tiling will feature as an attractive focal point in your home. Therefore, it’s time to browse the options available to you and pick your favourite style.




Classic brick tiling provides a simplistic, yet sophisticated and timeless, design. It consists of rows of tiles often offset by half a tile width. The long, horizontal lines will create the illusion of a wider kitchen, especially when choosing lighter colours. And if you want to accentuate the design, combine it with a contrasting grout colour.


Vertical Brick

If you’re looking to heighten the room, arranging your bricks in an upwards direction is your answer. It also provides a unique twist on the traditional horizontal brick laying and therefore provides a point of interest in your design.


Large Brick

Oversized bricking can deliver a seamless design, making your kitchen appear more open. It can really lighten the room and provide a completely different feel compared to traditional tiling.



Mosaics are great for creating beautifully crafted imagery in your home, through the arrangement of coloured tiles to paint a larger picture. The design opportunities with mosaic tiling is endless and can work particularly well as a feature wall.



Stacked tiling can bring a modern look that works exceptionally well with clean cut geometric patterns. This design consists of a stacked pattern where tiles are arranged to form a repetitive grid pattern.


Solid Slabs

For smaller kitchens where less material is required, solid slabs are the perfect solution. Using a single slab can create the feeling of open space and be easily cut to size to fit the contours of your kitchen.



Even with the simplest of materials, herringbone provides a sophisticated aesthetic with a luxurious appeal. To create this design the tiles are layered in right angles until it eventually forms a zigzag formation. This will take some extra time as you cut off excess material at the borders, but the end results will be more than worth it.


Accent Borders

For those looking for an easy design without it looking too empty, accent borders work great for a minimalistic approach to creating a décor focal point. They’re also a cost-effective option for when the tiles you’re already using aren’t enough to fit the height of your walls and you need something to fill the space.

There are hundreds of design opportunities you could choose from, but here are a few of our favourites. Whether you’re looking for something sleek and contemporary or unique and daring, there’s always a way.
