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.
Kitchen Islands can have some additional design options like breakfast bars and installed appliances which can achieve the 'triangle' design of sink-stove-refrigerator that is considered one of the top kitchen design ideas. Kitchen Islands are also available in many styles and designs such as: Contemporary, Traditional, American Folk and French Country.
Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle (sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop) and make it more efficient.
Map it out. The backsplash is quite literally one of the first things you notice when you enter a kitchen, therefore, you should take special care in planning your backsplash design. It must not only be beautiful, the backsplash must tie the entire room together. Make sure to consider all the elements such as the countertop, floors, cabinets, and wall color when selecting your tile. More importantly, take time to plan the placement of tiles: Where will you start? What happens at the edges? Are the edges filled with awkward cuts? Typically, you start in the middle of the wall and work you way out.
Some newer kitchen island ideas include the following features: rolling islands that can be used where a large island won't fit, granite-topped islands, and islands with furniture like features such as pilasters. New homebuyers aren't the only ones that should consider a kitchen island design for their kitchen. Some older homes with an awkward kitchen floor plan with limited space can also benefit from a kitchen island design idea. Closed off kitchens have been transformed into more open looking kitchens by lowering existing walls half way to forms islands between the kitchen and nearby living space.
