Floor tiles are one of the most important aspects when it comes to creating a kitchen with personality and character. Not only do they provide an easy way for you to create your own unique look or feel, but they can also help shape the feel of the overall design.
Are you in need of new kitchen floor tiles? If so, the year 2022 may be a good time to consider some classic options. With these timeless styles, your kitchen will have that vintage charm for years to come!
1. Black And White Kitchen Floor Tiles For A Timeless Design
A black and white kitchen is a classic look that’s never going out of style. Avoid tile patterns with too many squares (i.e smaller tiles), as this might take away from the elegance of this look. Rounded or curved edges on your floor tiles are a great way to keep the design simple, clean and classic.
If you go with square tiles, you’re choosing a design that has been beloved for centuries; pair it up with either white or black cabinets and counter tops – white to keep it simple and clean and black to make it sleek and organized.
Although wooden countertops are not the first choice with black and white kitchen floors, they do make a refreshing change and give more warmth to your kitchen.
For the furniture, either seek to complement your floor by bringing in a black wood table (polished) or a square white table. You can also choose to contrast by going with a red table; this will make the kitchen floor pop even more.
Use warm lights to keep your kitchen cozy as well as classy.
2. Add Some Warmth With Terracotta Kitchen Floor Tiles
If you’re looking for a more natural look in your kitchen floor tiles, terra cotta is a great way to tie the space together. Terracotta floor tiles have a rustic feel that can warm up a space, and they come in a variety of colors to fit your design.
While terracotta kitchen floor tiles may not be the best option for high-traffic homes, they can add a lot of character and charm to a home.
Neutral colors go best with terracotta tiles; so go with a cream or carbon gray or beige for your walls. For the backsplash, you can either choose a regular subway tile backsplash or go with a mosaic or patterned option.
For the cabinets, depending on what color backsplash and walls you have, you can go with white cabinets with black countertops (the black complements the terra cotta tile floor) or black cabinets with wood countertops.
3. Gray Herringbone Tiles
The herringbone pattern is a long-time favorite of homeowners, these look great in a lot of colors but one great choice would be dark gray ceramic tiles in the herringbone pattern – gray is perhaps the ‘most classic’ of color choices when it comes to interior design.
Pair up your gray herringbone ceramic tile design with a monochrome kitchen backsplash, and a contrasting white shaker kitchen cabinet – all classic go-to’s for kitchen design.
For the upper cabinets, if you want to contrast with the gray floor, go with yellow or pink, or red cabinets. If you want to complement, then go with a neutral shade.
4. Black And White Hexagonal Tiles For A Trendy, Urban Vibe
Fancy a hexagonal tile kitchen? You can add a little pop of color with accessories, or keep it neutral and play up the hexagonal shape instead. Black and white tiles are huge in the world of home design, so this is a perfect way to bring an artful yet classic look into your kitchen.
There are so many ways to design a kitchen with a black and white floor, it all depends on the vibe you’re going for.
Use blue cabinets to bestow class on your kitchen; use yellow to make it fun and cheerful, and red to make it striking, or use gray to keep it casual.
5. Warm Wood Porcelain Tiles For A Cozy Cabin Feel
If your kitchen isn’t very big and you’re looking to create a cozy cabin feel (with wood-look tiles), then warm wood look porcelain tiles are the way to go.
These tiles are not only classic but also come in a variety of gray tones that look stunning with white cabinets and dark countertops. They also look great in a color such as green, which is perfect for creating a springtime vibe.
If you like wood look tile flooring, but don’t actually want to use real wood for your kitchen floor (because of maintenance issues), then choose warm wood porcelain tiles to have the look minus the maintenance.
6. Blue Mosaic Tile Flooring
Mosaic tiles are also very versatile, so they can be used in a variety of ways. For example, you can create a checkerboard pattern with different shades of blue, or use a variety of shapes and sizes to create a unique design.
Blue mosaic tiles are available in a wide range of shades and designs, including blue and white, and blue and gray. If you prefer to stick with neutral shades, blue is a great choice since it goes nicely with many other colors.
You can create a bright and modern look by pairing the tiles with a sleek white countertop and stainless steel appliances. Alternately, you could use black or gray accents to create a more modern look.
If you’re looking for a more traditional look, you could pair the tiles with white cabinets and light color cabinets, backsplashes, and countertops. This pairing will create a cozy country feel that is very inviting. You can also find a more ornate design in blue tiles, complete with bunches of grapes or an urn filled with flowers.
7. Go Classy With Classic Marble
Marble floors will never get old – and for good reason. They make for a very appealing kitchen aesthetic: clean, premium, and very classy. White marble floors are especially valued for their snowy white, flawless appearance.
You can design a marble floor kitchen in a lot of ways. Incorporate wood furniture to complement white marble floors perfectly; if you have chosen to go with a green marble floor, go with black chairs and a black wood table.
For the walls: paint them white (if you’re going with white marble) and make sure to have lots of natural light in your kitchen to give the whole space a heavenly glow.
8. Slate Gray Marble Mosaics With Gold Flecks
Slate gray marble tiles with gold flecks are perfect for creating an opulent yet rustic look that is always popular. If you’re looking to add a royal feel while keeping the kitchen’s style traditional and timeless, choose marble mosaic tiles with gold flecks.
Mosaics are great for homeowners who have an artistic taste. To complement the slate gray marble tile flooring, you can choose to have gold polished or dark yellow chairs (to match the gold flecks in the floor design). You also have a metal leg table (painted gold) and gray top or you can choose to have a gray island and countertops with a similar aesthetic as the floor.
9. Become Calm With Cream-Colored Porcelain Tiles
Cream-colored kitchen floors make for a very calming interior; if you pair this type of floor with warm lighting in your kitchen, you have the perfect place to sit down, relax and enjoy a meal after a long, hard day.
To complement the cream-colored kitchen floor you can go for wooden cabinets, especially with grayish hues, as they provide a perfect balance.
10. Get The Clean And Sturdy Style With Gray Slate Tiles
Gray slate tiles are the answer to all of your decorating needs. Slate tiles provide a sturdy and clean base for any kitchen, and they work well with just about any style.
If you want to create a modern look, go for sleek black or gray marble countertops paired with stainless steel appliances. If you have older appliances, consider pairing the slate tiles with light wood cabinets for a cozy country feel.
