What to Think of When Designing Your Kitchen

Your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home, and one that will occupy most of your time if you like to eat or cook. Though many believe that the cabinets and appliances are what give a kitchen its identity, the most important features are the tiles and back splash. Tile can serve as a focal point of the room, setting the tone and feel of the design. Tiles differ in shape, texture, pattern, and color, with an infinite amount of choices and possibilities. Depending on style and personality, choices may range from a creative option with a bold statement, to a more modern preference.

Different tile options can include ceramic, stone, and porcelain, with each one appealing in its own way. Ceramic, made from clay, is extremely easy to install and environmentally friendly, yet might take on more damage than porcelain. Much harder and denser than ceramic, porcelain tile is also water resistant, while more difficult to install. Stone would give the kitchen a more naturally beautiful feel and is quite durable, however, is the most expensive. Be sure to assess all options before making your selection.

Colors are also a core component to the kitchen, and should depend on your personality. Consider using a lighter tone for a smaller space, for more light and to help open the area. In a larger designed kitchen, take a look at darker options that can also be used to brighten and give character to the space. If you have a more creative side, consider multicolored designs, or patterns, which are coming back in style. No matter the choice, make sure the outcome is something reflective of you, and that you will be happy looking at for many years.
