What type of tile is best for a kitchen wall?
It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed with the options available, but a few simple little tips should help you make the right choice. We are often asked if a textured wall tile is practical in a kitchen. Textured tiles can look great, especially if you want to create a rustic vibe. But be aware that any tiles that have a deeply textured surface will be a little trickier to keep clean, especially if you are cooking regularly!
Natural stone tiles and mosaics require sealing; this is because they are naturally porous. Sealing your natural stone tiles will buy you time to clean any stains, such as sauce and wine splashes before any permanent damage occurs. If you want to keep cleaning and maintenance to a minimum then a smooth glazed ceramic tile may be your best option. All you have to decide is whether you prefer a matt finish or a gloss finish.
Glass mosaics are right on trend at the moment and will give your kitchen a fresh modern edge. If you are put off by the thought of all that grout why not consider a different colour to white. Grouts are now available in a variety of shades including beige, grey, anthracite and black.
