How kitchen wall tile designs have changed

Kitchen wall tile designs have changed a lot over the last few years. It was the complete norm to have 100x100mm wall tiles, which makes perfect sense due to the size of the area on the kitchen wall being tiled.

The average kitchen wall space between the work surface and the cupboards was 4 tiles high (of 100x100mm) with small spacing between the tiles. Plus there are sockets to cut around in this area, as well as a kitchen splash-back to contend with! This is still the case, but a lot of kitchen spaces are not limited to 100x100mm wall tile designs.

It is quite common nowadays to paint the kitchen wall area, but kitchen wall tiles are much more hard wearing and hygienic than paint. Choose a tile design that appeal to you and it will stay beautiful for many years to come. The kitchen is the heart of the home – so bring out the love!

Metro tiles are all the rage for kitchen wall tiles, as well as for the bathroom, or a cloakroom. Anywhere you want! There are so many types of metro tiles available that they tick all boxes for choice! Retro tiles are the classic glossy metro tile with a bevelled edge, there are also vintage style metro tiles in trendy muted greens or blues, country kitchen metro tiles, darker more masculine tile designs, as well as bright fresh and airy metro tiles.

Metro tiles are smaller in size, so fit perfectly on kitchen walls. You can make the most of the tile designs by using a contrasting grout colour, which especially works well with brick-bonded tile designs.

Kitchen tiles can be ceramic or porcelain. Both of which are more than adequate for domestic use in your own home. Tileflair only sell a high quality tile product, so we have complete confidence in the tiles we sell. Also see our Price Promise.
