Decorative wall and ﬂoor tiles are a versatile option to incorporate into your kitchen scheme. Materials including stone, ceramic, glass and porcelain are available in a variety of shapes, size and finishes offering a practical option whether you’re looking to cover a large surface area or create a feature. If you’re considering your colour options, start by deciding if you want a solid block of colour, tiles that feature colour variations or a ﬂat or risen surface to the tile. A patterned tile can add interest by creating a unique focal point.
Try not to compromise on quality and remember to always purchase an additional 5 –10% more tiles than you actually need. This allows you to compensate for cuts and breakages and ensures you have the same batch and shade should you need additional tiles.
