Kitchen Tile Design: Good Ideas Start with Beautiful Tile

The type of tile you choose for your kitchen remodel can set the tone for your kitchen space. Muted earth tones impart a rustic feeling, while sleek black and white can make even the most traditional design look a bit more contemporary. It all begins with the tile! Here are five very popular options:

  • Ceramic Tile. Very easy to work with and often inexpensive, ceramic tile has a great reputation of beauty and versatility. On the other hand, it does stain readily, and can break if you drop a pan on it.
  • Porcelain Tile. Tougher than ceramic tile but with the same homespun beauty, porcelain tiles are great for durability but a bit pricier than their ceramic cousins.
  • Glass Tile. A delicate tile, these might not be the best for work surfaces, but they make for beautiful backsplashes.
  • Terra Cotta Tile. A natural beauty, terra cotta can be made stronger with the inclusion of certain types of stone in the mix.
  • Natural Stone Tile. Thin yet sturdy, natural stone tile can give your kitchen that luxurious air.

Where you use your tile matters, so get creative! Put tile on the walls of your kitchen, consider tile on the ceiling, and look at the possibilities of putting tile on your kitchen table. The options are endless!
