Design of tiled flooring kitchen


The choice of floor tiles in the kitchen should be approached in view of the increased wear of the surface. Tile in this case has the maximum set of useful properties. Among them:

  • durability;
  • resistance to mechanical stress;
  • sustainability;
  • acceptable price.

One of the main advantages of this coating is the variety of shades and patterns.

Colors and texture of tiles for kitchen flooring

Optimal for use in the kitchen are natural colors:

Here, as for any other coating, the basic rules for choosing shades work. Light floors brighten the room and expand the space. The tile is easy to clean, because this floor is not afraid of pollution. To maintain sterile cleanliness, regular wet cleaning is sufficient.

A dark tile flooring is less than a mark. In addition, the use of dark lining is one of the most popular trends for many years.

An interesting effect can be achieved by combining different shades. The abundance of colors offered on construction wounds will allow for an ideal harmony of the floor covering with the rest of the furnishings.

It is not necessary that the shade of the floor coincides with the walls or furniture. You can not even withstand them in one color scheme. Contrasting floors have already become popular many years ago and retain this property to this day. But the easiest way to balance the room by color is still the combination of the chosen flooring with at least one other item in the kitchen: curtains, furniture, walls or something else.

If there is no possibility to cover the floor with a natural stone, then imitations can be used. Modern manufacturers make high-quality copies of marble, granite, wood, bricks and even textiles.

In addition, the use of artificially aged coatings has become a popular technique recently. In addition, that it will give the room a certain style, it will not be visible small chips, scrapes and cracks obtained during operation.

The use of patterns on the floor tile is no longer as popular as it used to be. Nevertheless, the collections of many manufacturers also contain such models for fans of bright design.

Various schemes of laying out floor tiles

In addition to color solutions, it is possible to give originality to the kitchen using various layout schemes. You can use two different shades and paste them in a checkerboard pattern. As a result, we get an interesting contrast solution that will refresh the interior. It should be borne in mind that the rest of the design should be moderate in the choice of colors. If you do not follow this rule, then the kitchen turns out to be too colorful.

A quadrangular tile of the same size can be laid out so that the seams coincide, or so that the seams of the next row fall on the middle of the tile of the previous one. The choice of this or that option depends only on the preferences of the host, since these two methods have no fundamental differences.

The variety of forms of tile also gives room for imagination. Larger details will fit a minimalist style or hi-tech direction. Smaller tiles look great in the kitchen in the country style.

Some ways of laying out tiles are somewhat similar to gluing parquet. This is especially pronounced when parts are used for floor covering that resemble a parquet board. This way of laying will visually change the shape of the room. The most effective illusion of expanding the space will work in case of placing the resulting "arrows" from the center to the walls of the kitchen. In addition, you can use more complex patterns, for example, a spiral.

Another original method of decorating the kitchen floor will be the use of different in shape and size of the tiles. With the help of such details, you can create truly original patterns, but for this you need to calculate the layout of the entire kitchen area in advance, so as not to be mistaken with the number of elements. You can alternate the pieces in different ways. This will not be a full-fledged mosaic, but there is something common in the technology of re-laying. For example, you can use several small parts in a row and one large, after which the sequence is repeated. The most popular way of using tiles of different sizes is to glue small and large parts in equal amounts evenly throughout the kitchen area.

Usually use two sizes of tiles. But you can complicate the task and apply three or even four varieties. In this way, you can create an original and unique interior of the kitchen.

In addition to the combination of sizes, you can combine glossy and matt tiles. Such a floor covering, regardless of the main color, will be bright. Spillovers of light on glossy elements will fill the kitchen with light. A matt tile will prevent slipping.

Make the kitchen interior original by using unusual elements in shape. Many manufacturers have expanded their range of non-standard tiles. Round details give any interior softness and smooth out sharp lines and transitions. With the gluing of such tiles, some difficulties are connected. The seams between the elements may look rough. As an alternative, hexagons and octagons can act. Docking such tiles is much easier.

Also, triangles, elongated narrow strips, rhombuses and other geometric figures look original. They can be used separately, laying out the whole floor, and combining different forms with each other.

Select the design of floor tiles for the kitchen should take into account all the features of the room. But the most important criterion should be the preferences of the owner of this kitchen.
