Kitchen Tile – Creativity And Performance

Nation-wide, Interior designers are focusing on kitchen tile. Why? The kitchen is the hub of modern family life. It’s the room where Madison WI family members move in and out every day.

In the kitchen meals are prepared, daily events are planned and coordinated. It doubles as dining room, study hall, home office, craft room and “party central.” It needs to be inviting, versatile and low-maintenance, right?

Versatile, low maintenance and stylish. That’s a definition of porcelain tiles, ceramic tiles and all the unique decorative tiles. And there’s a great selection awaiting you at Madison’s most complete tile store.

When you walk into the kitchen each morning does it boost your attitude or is it just “there?” One of the top complaints remodelers get is: I hate my kitchen! That says a lot. But, it doesn’t get to the heart of the issue. What do you need? What do you want?

A distinctive facelift is a great start – maybe refreshing with a new exciting color. And, adding wood-look tile planks on the floor and a new twist on traditional subway tile on walls. Complete the rebirth with a dramatic mosaic tile kitchen backsplash. Stretch it from countertop to ceiling. It will guarantee a new level of “wow” in the room. How’s that for an all-new approach – kitchen tile from floor to ceiling?

There was a time when builders had to put something behind the stove, sink and counters to protect the walls from splatters and spills. Nothing special, probably tile squares or rectangles. A creative touch was painted tile with country scenes or pictures of fruit. The backsplash tile was an afterthought. Your parents and grandparents probably didn’t even hear the word backsplash.

The tile backsplash has grabbed the spotlight. Designers build kitchen décor around backsplash tile. Not limited to a small area behind the stove, your revived backsplash can stretch to the ceiling.

Basic shapes have given way to unique patterns, bold colors and appealing textures. Hand-painted cement tile adds dimension to the space. Natural stone tiles create rugged good looks. Kitchen tile sets the stage for your preferred style – from a classic farmhouse country kitchen to an uptown industrial loft vibe. Tile offers more ways to release your creative energy than any other option. You’d love a way to let your personality loose in the kitchen, right?

Tile That Looks Like Wood

The farmhouse is a 21st century icon. But it is evolving. The pure farmhouse look is in transition. Today, designers are combining traditional and modern styling. An open floorplan makes it even easier to blend styles.

A top choice for blending traditional with contemporary is the use of wood-look tiles. Four-foot long Tile planks create floors that mimic the most exotic hardwoods. Even better, they resist wear and water much, much better! Don’t overlook applying them to walls, too.

Tile floors take advantage of all the popular design trends and are easier to keep clean and protect than hardwood. Kids or pets? Heavy traffic, dirt and mud aren’t threats to floor tile, unlike wood, laminates and even high-end vinyl floors.

Subway Tile – The ‘Classic’ Look

Do you want something a bit more exciting than the standard classic look? Consider these options available in every color imaginable:

  • Hexagon tile – create dynamic patterns with an assortment of sizes and colors.
  • Squares and rectangles – mix and match the basic shapes to create your own design.
  • Geometric layouts – combine elements like hexagons with diamond-shapes and squares. If you can dream it, there’s a tile to make it happen.
  • High-tech – high-resolution printing puts unique patterns and designs on tile. Do you want a herringbone tweed pattern, a wall that looks like fabric, a mirror or a metallic finish? It’s available.

Don’t overlook the allure of cement tiles. Forget your image of gray cement on your kitchen wall. It’s not what you think. Cement tile is anything but drab. It features hand-made elegance with dynamic colors. It’s durable and can be customized to any décor.
