Used on walls, floors, countertops or as a splashback; available in every colorway; traditional or contemporary; patterned, textured or plain; tiles can completely transform the look and feel of your kitchen. Tiles are also extremely hard-wearing and very easy to keep clean. They will stay looking as good as new for years to come. Pick up some tiling ideas from these inspiring kitchen projects.

Rectangular tiles with grey grouting
Keeping it simple can sometimes be the best choice when it comes to designing a kitchen that won’t date. White envelope tiles are usually budget-friendly and look good with almost any style of kitchen but lay them with dark grouting to keep the look current.
Shimmering glass tiles
Add some sparkle to your kitchen with tiny hexagonal glass mosaic tiles that will catch the light and glitter. Team with dark, richly colored kitchen units for an on-trend contemporary feel. These tiles will also make the most of what light there is in a dark kitchen and their reflective qualities will also help to make a small space feel larger.
Tiled blocks of colour
Use tiles to build up blocks of color in your kitchen. This is a great effect to use to draw attention to a focal point, such as a shelving alcove, as shown here, or across a chimney breast. For a more subtle effect, opt for tiles that come in a range of hues from light to dark to produce an ombre-effect wall or floor.
Blue and white country-style border
Nothing says ‘country’ like an Aga stove and the blue and white colour scheme that calls to mind summer skies and pretty crockery. Take the scheme a step further with two-tone wall tiles. Placing the deeper colour at the bottom of the room opens the space up and out, so it’s a great way to make a small kitchen feel bigger.
It’s common to see the traditional herringbone tile pattern used on kitchen floors. For a more modern, edgy look apply this arrangement to kitchen walls, either as a splashback, on a chimney breast alcove or as a statement wall to create an interesting feature of a kitchen/diner eating area.
