Patterned Kitchen Tile

Adding patterned tile is the perfect way to infuse a splash of style into your space. You can choose a subtle design to add a touch of excitement without overwhelming the rest of the room. For those who prefer a bolder choice, try incorporating a daring piece as the feature element. Backsplashes are perfect to use for smaller patterns, while the floors make a great host for a stronger motif. No matter how you bring in a patterned tile, modern kitchens will benefit from this extra style element. 

For those looking to bring a hint of retro into their modern kitchen, Cementine Black and White brings that fun nostalgic feeling while still remaining modern. This black and white tile is available in a variety of vintage-inspired motifs, all of which provide movement and whimsy to your kitchen floor or backsplash.  Consider pairing this tile with a cream-toned wall, stainless steel appliances and dark gray-scale countertops; the patterned backsplash or floor will complement the solid color throughout the kitchen and create an inviting l feel in the room. 

Chymia tile provides a bold design with a clean, crisp palette.  Available in either a black or white background with an accenting feature pattern on top, this tile is perfect for a vibrant backsplash. For those that love patterns but opt for a more subtle design, there is also a selection without the contrasting color. The sturdy porcelain material promises longevity, and the versatile design can be used within any color scheme. Its unique combination of sophistication and playfulness makes Chymia a beautiful choice.

Pops of Color In Your Kitchen Tile

Gone are the days of not daring to bring bright colors into your kitchen. Contemporary, vibrant kitchens need equally exciting colors — and a hued tile is ideal for the job. Colorful tile can be used as a way to drive home the chosen palette for the renovation, or as a way to incorporate a bold splash of new energy and tone. Using colored tile as an accent in an otherwise minimalist space also adds lots of energy and interest without detracting from other style elements. 

Flash ceramic tile is crafted with the modern renovator in mind. Its wide variety of available bright colors makes it the choice piece for infusing color into any kitchen. In the tone Blush, the pastel pink tile can be used as an accent backsplash for a bright, fresh kitchen. Paired with light walls and appliances, the pink adds flair without weighing down the room. Light Blue would make a fantastic choice as trim for a pop of color or an entire floor for a cool-themed space. There are endless ways to incorporate Flash tile colors into your kitchen design; start mixing and matching tones in your design strategy to see what pops.

Geometric Kitchen Tile 

Geometric tile in your kitchen adds an extra layer of interest and movement, without overwhelming the room. On countertops or backsplashes, this tile creates an inviting accent piece for the room. On the floor, they can be used as a feature piece foundational to the entire design. Wherever you place it, shaped tile will add a modern and exciting touch.

Consider Paloma ceramic tile. Available in a hex shape, bevel shape, rhomboid shape, and picket shape, this selection is the ultimate option for incorporating a geometric element. This series offers a wide range of stunning, neutral colors; which makes incorporating it into an existing design a breeze.

For example, use the Camel-toned rhomboid as a backsplash, and the Cotton-toned bevel as an accent piece in your backsplash — each would bring sophisticated energy to the room. The Steel toned Hex, alternatively, would make a bold statement all on its own.
