Another trend driven in large part by manufacturing technologies is timber-look tiles, which we simply can’t get enough of in the kitchen. “Although nothing to date can replicate the feeling of real wood underfoot, those who are looking for a low-maintenance option in the kitchen now have timber-look ceramic and porcelain floor tiles,” says Amebsury. “These are available in various plank dimensions and colourways – both natural and abstract.” These planks, with their textural variations and slightly weathered look, are particularly striking when laid in a herringbone pattern, as pictured here.9 Reasons to Love Timber-Look Tiles in the Bathroom
Solution: Factor in surrounding furniture and finishesWhen selecting tiles, keep in mind the look you’re trying to achieve and be confident in your choice. It’s also a good idea to go to the showroom armed with a mood board of the other elements in the kitchen, such as furniture and joinery, to make sure your chosen tile blends in well. A good rule of thumb is to avoid conflicting patterns, particularly between the walls and floor. If you’ve chosen richly patterned flooring, opt for simple wall colours; if you have a bold feature wall, choose simple floor tiles.
