The household kitchen is the hub of the home. It is the heart of a house party, the place where family team huddles happen, and where delicious meals are prepared over loud chatter. In modern homes, kitchens have become the new living rooms, replacing the old closed kitchens with a roomy space that accommodates small seating areas. Which is why more and more attention is being paid to enhance the layout, design and functionality of kitchen spaces.
When designed with love and care, the kitchen can set the tone for your entire home. Here are a few things you should keep in mind regarding the tiling and colour combinations for your kitchen walls, floors and backsplashes.
While selecting your kitchen wall tiles, keep the overall theme in mind, whether you go for a simple appearance or a sublime look. Black tiling is the most popular choice for kitchens because of its ability to hide unwanted stains. It also goes with almost all contrasting colours. Another subtle option is brown—the colour of dependability—as it ensures a good balance with striking complementary colours like orange. All-white kitchens are also preferred for their urbane and upscale quality. And if you are adventurous enough, go for soothing shades of green and blue to give your kitchen a creative twist.
So far as the flooring is concerned, polished vitrified tiles in textured browns or light greys will balance the overall theme of your kitchen. Vitrified tile flooring also lasts long as it is strong enough to bear the load of heavy countertops and other kitchen furniture.
Remember, the entire kitchen doesn’t need to be splashed with bold colours. Sometimes a smattering of daring hues is enough to complement the other kitchen surfaces. An artistic backsplash that combines different colour combinations can character-up your kitchen. And if you want to go completely basic, a monochrome kitchen works best with a little backsplash detailing of white ceramic wall tiles.
Taking wise decisions about your kitchen’s wall tiling, flooring, and backsplash detailing will help you enhance the epicentre of your home!
