Ideas for kitchen tiles

The holidays are over, the children are back at school - and the kitchen needs fixing before Christmas! If you are looking for inspiration on updating your wall or floor tiling, read our Style File before you start. Here are some more ideas from our ranges:

Walls

The walls behind kitchen cabinets can get grubby without easy to clean tiling. Choose white or pale square, brick or bevelled metro tiles from La Belle CollectionArtworks and Winchester but make sure to seal the grout if it's white as it won't stay that way for long. Alternatively use a coloured grout to avoid the problem. For a farmhouse traditional look incorporate decorated tiles such as herbs, fish, animals and wines to add a flourish. For sleek lines, reflective surfaces and a spectrum of colours, go for Glassworks. There are lots of sizes and formats to choose from, including bevelled tiles.Splashbacks are larger format toughened glass sheets with matching upstands, designed to fit behind and around the hob. The Mosaics Collectioncontains a wide range of mosaics for kitchen walls, from glass and stone to metal. Or opt for the much loved patchwork: try Tapestry or Mont Blanc for crisp mixes in white and blue or Chateaux for more colour and texture.

Floors

You'll need something to stand up to the wear and tear in a kitchen, why not try wood-effect tiles from Tileworks? These look the part and work hard too.Natural stone or porcelain stone effect tiles are your friends in the kitchen and if you are so inclined they are suitable for underfloor heating. For something more decorative and colourful, look at Odyssey and Victorian Floor Tiles.
