Use texture. As with color and pattern, texture can set the tone for your entire kitchen. For example, earth colored granite tiles cut into a uniform size are warm and inviting, while metal tiles, on the other hand, create a contemporary and modern feel. It's all in the details. It's the little details that make a kitchen "yours" instead of looking like it just came off a showroom floor. Intriguing kitchen backsplash designs are more about thoughtful details than grandiose gestures. And honestly, it doesn't take much to create a one-of-a-kind kitchen tile design. A few well-placed decorative tiles, diamond tiles instead of squares, or a colorful checkered diamond tile backsplash can literally set your kitchen apart from the rest.
Floor Tile Ideas. There are two common kitchen tile ideas to choose from. It only needs a little analysis and the proper design that goes with the entire concept of the kitchen theme. Glazed tiles are smooth and can easily be cleaned by simple mopping. Smooth kitchen floor tiles are classy and elegant in the modern kitchen. Unglazed tiles are non-skid making them safe from slips and falls. They need regular cleaning for proper sanitation and maintenance of their chic look.
Types of Tiles. There are various types of flooring that can fit into everybody's needs according to kitchen designs and need of the homeowner. Natural slate stone tiles are durable, stain resistant and non-slip surface due to their textures; designed for the busy kitchen. Saltillo tiles are for Mediterranean designed kitchens that must be sealed and cleaned with wet cloth without chemicals. Granite kitchen tiles on the other hand, are durable but sensitive to liquid stains and scratches and rough objects exposed to them. This type of kitchen flooring must be cleaned often. Porcelain tiles are more durable and expensive than ceramics and they come in assorted colors. Ceramics kitchen tiles come in matte or glossy types in many colors. Travertine is a porous limestone that is usually sealed to prevent liquid and dirt absorption. It becomes slippery with drops of water or juice.
Additional kitchen island ideas are to consider using shelf space on the sides of your kitchen island for cookbooks, collectibles or storage. A built-in TV works here, especially if it faces the family room. Or a microwave may work well for heating up after-school snacks and cooking foods quickly.
Countertop material for the island doesn't have to match the rest of your kitchen countertops as long as it is harmonious with the room's overall design. You may want to splurge on solid surfacing here, for example, and use laminate on the other countertops. A butcher-block countertop is ideal for chopping, while granite or marble works well for baking purposes and for rolling pastry dough.
