If you love the elegance and charm of French style, a bistro kitchen will make dining in a special affair every day. Below are some great ways to incorporate tile into a quaint bistro style kitchen.

Black and White

Many bistro kitchens feature black and white elements, whether on walls, cabinets, countertops, or all three. A black island with white countertops perfectly blends together to provide an elegant bistro look. Our new Metropolis Dark natural quartz top would work lovely for an island, paired with Princess White Quartzite countertops. If you go with a mostly black and white scheme, be sure to infuse some bright colors in accents like appliances, lighting fixtures, or other décor, to stay true to a bistro style design.

Subway Tile

Classic subway tile is a great match for any bistro kitchen design, whether used for a crisp backsplash or a complete floor-to-ceiling tiled wall.


Bianco Carrara Marble surfaces are often seen in bistros, likely due to the clean, rich look they create. Consider a marble backsplash or countertop – or both! Bianco Carrara marble is particularly lovely for a bistro design.


Bistro kitchens often use restaurant-style flooring, such as hardwood or patterned tile. Use our Cementine Black and White Series tile for a beautiful floor that will perfectly complement an overall black and white scheme, or go with our Cementine Series if you desire more color. And if you prefer a wood look, you’ll love our Aequa Series, a rectified color body porcelain that has a reclaimed wood appearance. When designing a bistro kitchen, you can make it as traditional as you like, or incorporate modern elements for a trendier look. Whatever design scheme you choose, you’ll love your bistro kitchen and so will any guests that have the pleasure of dining with you!
