Choosing the Right Tiles for Your Kitchen

There is something super fun in renovation and when you get to make the decisions for your home reno project, you are the one who is in charge of how it turns out. For example, if you love DIY and you love a project, then it makes sense you would want to get stuck into most of the details yourself. 

However, there are some renovation projects you really shouldn’t touch! For example, you shouldn’t touch the plumbing or the electricity. You should stick to the floors, the walls and, of course, the tiles. You want your kitchen to stand out and with the help of Tile Shack tiles, you can do just that. But how do you choose the right tiles for your kitchen? How do you pick what’s going to look great and stand the test of time? Let’s take a look at some things you really have to consider:

  1. They should be easy to clean. Let’s be honest: the kitchen can be a hard place to clean. It’s prone to different types of dirt and debris, and you’re likely to deal with oil, so splatter is imminent. You need tiles that won’t take you much to scrub clean but that can also withstand the rigours of bleach. You want tiles that are hard to stain, too, because the next time you use turmeric, you shouldn’t ruin them! You can use porcelain, but some people still choose stone. The best thing that you should do is think about the placement of the tile itself and choose a material that will sit well.
  2. You can match your existing designs. If your kitchen is largely black and white in decor, then you don’t want to have tiles that won’t suit the space. Keeping your tiles matching your existing cabinetry and design will help you to work your kitchen well. You want to think about textures, colors and shapes that work best with the style and shapes of your countertops and cupboards. You also don’t want awkward shaped tiles so think about sizing, too. Large tiles may need replacing with mosaics, for example. 
  3. Think of it as an investment. Your tiles are going to be a huge investment in your home and your kitchen, so make a point of being in it for the long haul. You want to make sure that you go for quality. Cheapening out on your tiles can really change the experience that you have when buying for your kitchen. You want to make a point of going with high-quality, durable materials. Durability is something that you should be investing in, so pick a style and material that will make your kitchen stand out while also standing the test of time and your cooking.

Going for bulk, cheap tiles is not the way to go if you want your kitchen to look great. Think about your personal space, how you want your kitchen to look and then invest wisely with the right advice!
