How to create a spacious feel in your kitchen with tiles

If you are planning a kitchen renovation you may be wondering how to make the most of a small space. There are many great options for your cabinetry which will help you to create a practical space, however you should also consider design options such as the colour scheme, worktop and tiles to ensure the finished design adds a feeling of spaciousness.

Tiles are a great way to enhance a small space, and many of our popular tiles will help your kitchen to feel much larger, so to help you in your search our team have compiled this useful guide.

1) White kitchen tiles

If you have a small kitchen, you can enhance the feeling of space by opting for white tiles which will create a light and airy feel. The versatility of white tiles are also perfect for creating a timeless finish, and they lend themselves to many interior décor styles. We have many stunning ranges with white tiles available, including the Albertina, Penny Lane, Connemara and Weller.

2) Marble-effect tiles

If you hoping to create a luxurious feel whilst sticking to a budget, marble-effect tiles are the ideal choice. The veins which run through the tiles will naturally draw attention across the tiled surface, which will help to create a feeling of space. A great example of a popular marble-effect range is our Vespa Carrara collection, which is ideal for pairing with many interior styles.

3) Patterned tiles

Patterned kitchen tiles are the ideal way to create a statement in a small space. However, rather than using the patterned tiles throughout the flooring, we often recommend highlighting a section of the floor such as below a kitchen table or island. An example is shown within our Sonnet range, where the patterned tiles are used to create a focal area.

4) Black and white monochrome tiles

If you are looking to create a modern, timeless finish, monochrome tiles are a great option for a small kitchen. Within our patterned tile collection, we have a variety of black and white designs, which align perfectly to create a stunning finish, such as the tiles found within our Imagine range. By opting for these timeless colours, it will be easy to keep your kitchen up to date by changing accessories to match popular trends.

5) Diagonal or herringbone tiles

If you are a fan of the popular herringbone pattern often seen within wooden flooring, this is a great effect to replicate within a small kitchen. Rather than sticking to square tiles, the thin rectangular tiles will help to draw attention to the widest parts of the room, and our wood-effect Chateau tiles are the perfect choice.

6) Brightly coloured tiles

There are many stunning brightly coloured tiles available that will create a unique finish, with the added benefit of drawing attention away from the size of the room. Within the Navarro collection we offer a range of beautiful coloured tiles, such as those found within our Landmade and Luxor ranges.

7) Stone-effect tiles

Stone-effect tiles are a versatile choice thanks to their neutral finish, and the calming colours are ideal for use on both walls and floors. By continuing the tiling straight from the floor to the walls it will help to blur the edges of a small space, so the room will feel larger and more spacious. Our Verve range of tiles are available in a range of finishes, and the lighter tones will look stunning in a small kitchen space.

Here at Navarro Tiles, we offer our tiles on a wholesale basis to tile retailers throughout the UK and Ireland.
