How to Use Kitchen Wall Tiles to Uplift Hardworking Zones

Tiled walls make an excellent addition to kitchens, providing splash back protection while adding stylish accents that adorn hardworking areas. Plus, their ease of maintenance makes it the ideal solution for busy households.

Opt for neutral hues to prevent outdated color schemes, or herringbone patterns to add sophistication. Be sure to consider your chosen tile’s PEI rating which determines its durability before purchasing any item.

Patterned Motifs

Tiled feature areas add color, pattern and texture to kitchens while simultaneously improving function and creating eye-catching focal points. From simple geometric layouts to more eye-catching herringbone or chevron patterns – tiled feature areas bring vibrant life into kitchens!

Chango & Co’s olive green striped backsplash creates a striking focal point, lending natural elements into their modern space and complementing cabinetry perfectly.

Country Style

Thoughtful consideration must also go into selecting furniture, cabinets and worktops; but tiles can make an equally strong statement in any kitchen design scheme. Use them to create an eye-catching splashback or use herringbone tiles to enliven any kitchen with style.

White subway backsplash tiles create a sleek modern style in a farmhouse kitchen, pairing their creamy neutral tones perfectly with bronze hardware and wood floating shelves for a cozy ambiance. Add an element of pattern with herringbone or geometric tile designs for more country kitchen ideas.

Metro Style

Metro wall tiles are timeless when it comes to kitchen wall tiling styles. Their timeless herringbone or classic brick pattern provides the ideal framework for custom patterns or to showcase some of your favourites tiles.

Herringbone tile patterns make an eye-catching statement on large walls such as kitchen backsplashes or floor-to-ceiling bathroom walls behind sinks or toilets, particularly when contrasted by different grout colors.

Muted Palettes

Muted colors offer timeless sophistication when choosing kitchen tile colors, such as earthy beiges and gray tones that blend in beautifully with wood and metal accents.

Patterned tiles add a vibrant element to kitchen design by covering vertical surfaces like islands or peninsulas with them for an eye-catching accent that makes these areas the centerpiece of the kitchen design.

Wood look porcelain tiles are an ideal addition to a Scandi-style kitchen, creating an authentic feeling of natural depth and authenticity when coupled with white backsplash tiles.

GEMINI Poitiers

Making kitchen wall tiles more striking requires only choosing an intriguing shape – for instance, herringbone patterns add depth to white tiles, especially those in narrower formats like Metro tiles.

Welcome darker hues into your kitchen with GEMINI Poitiers collection. From subtle pink to rich azure blue and sumptuous burgundy hues, this range combines rustic finishes with current colour trends for modern living spaces.

GEMINI Metro Brick

Brick effect tiles – also known as subway or metro tiles in the US – are adept at fitting seamlessly into any interior design theme. Their bold blocks of colour add visual interest, supporting other features of a room like an eye-catching splashback behind your hob or providing subtle mosaic mosaics for an on-trend herringbone pattern.

Mosaics tend to feature wide grout lines that accentuate smaller rooms or create an eye-catching grid pattern on walls that makes a room seem even smaller. To avoid this effect, larger format tiles should be used throughout most of your kitchen and keep mosaics for alcoves or less prominent spaces only.


Engage both texture and pattern with this spectacular collection. The Block Nordic Antracite tile offers sleek porcelain decor perfect for creating dark kitchen schemes.

Add contrast against light wood floors and countertops by pairing this vibrant pink tile with light colors like walnut and cherry wood flooring and countertops. Its rippled surface mimics handmade products for an authentic appearance.

Hand-painted or printed decorative tiles add a luxurious and personal touch to your kitchen, without overshadowing its space. Installed either in a repeating pattern or as patchwork tiles of various designs, decorative tiles create an eye-catching aesthetic without overpowering its surroundings.

Stone wall tiles offer a rustic aesthetic. Heatproof and easy to maintain, they make for ideal splashbacks in busy work zones; but, being natural products themselves, they may stain easily so should be sealed more frequently for optimal performance.
