1) Antique Smooth Crackle Metro Tiles

No list of stylish kitchen tiles would be complete without a white brick shaped design. Metro tiles have been used in kitchens for decades, and they always manage to look fresh and timeless. For a unique twist, try these Antique Smooth Crackle Metro Tiles. They have a characterful crackle glaze. Be unique with your layout; try a herringbone pattern, as shown above and, again, go for a contrasting grout line!

reclaimed wood effect tiles

 

3) Swoonworthy Wood Effect Tiles

It's not all about the wall spaces - those floors need some TLC, too! A huge flooring trend for the coming years is reclaimed wood. That's wood that has been salvaged from one place and has been re-purposed somewhere else; either to create new flooring, or furniture, etc. It results in a mix of different colours and textures, which is highly characterful. Reclaimed wood is very expensive, which is where our Swoonworthy Wood Effect Tiles come into play. Use them to inject colour into your kitchen space.

 

cappella marble effect tiles

 

4) Cappella Marble Effect Tiles

We're all well aware of the trend of 'bringing the outdoors in' and creating a natural look in our interior spaces. When it comes to achieving this, the most popular stone type is marble; probably for its characterful veining draped over a refreshing white backdrop. Natural marble is costly and requires ongoing treatment and maintenance. Enter our realistic range of Cappella Marble Effect Tiles. With matt and gloss options available in different sizes, this collection caters for both walls and floors!

5) Patchwork Mosaic Effect Tiles

For a colourful and interesting kitchen splashback, you can't go wrong with patterned designs, such as our Mosaic Effect Patchwork Tiles. A mix of summery Moroccan patterns, these tiles have a textured surface, and are perfect for bringing a kitchen wall space to life! They have a fabric quality to them; giving them the appearance of a patchwork quilt, which makes them very unique and eye-catching.

6) Bronte Country Ferndean Tiles

Another popular scheme when it comes to decorating a kitchen space is the farmhouse look. There's something about a traditional country kitchen that us Brits just love. For a true rural scheme, there can only be one flooring option - a cool stone. Our Bronte Ferndean Tiles have a lifelike stone effect design and come in a mix of different sizes. Choose one of the modular layouts for a multi-sized pattern.
