Tile Styles to Lay Your Kitchen Foundation

When choosing floor tiles for your kitchen, you want to consider how the floor will complement the rest of the room. A more neutral floor look can ground a statement-making kitchen backsplash, while a bright color or bold pattern will add interest to a simpler kitchen design. Whatever your style, we have floor tiles that will provide a solid foundation.

Go Natural with Wood- and Stone-Look Tile

Wood creates a warm, rustic feel, while marble evokes a classical elegance. Natural materials look great in a kitchen, but if you’re looking for an option that requires less maintenance consider porcelain or ceramic tile made to resemble some of the finest marble and wood. These tiles will provide the look you want but with an easier level of care.

Classic and Classy Checkerboard Tile

A checkerboard pattern is a great way to add some playfulness to your kitchen floors without being obtrusive. A black and white tile checkerboard will give your kitchen a classic vintage look. Use white and patterned tile for a bold design. Or lay neutral colors like beige or stone-look in a checkerboard to add subtle interest to your floors. Shop our wide assortment of square tiles to create a look that is unique to you.

Ask the Tile Experts

  • Due to its cost effectiveness and easy maintenance, most of our tile is very well suited for kitchen floor installation. While our selection of ceramic and porcelain tile is popular because of the number of colors, shapes, sizes, finishes and textures that are available, The Tile Shop offers kitchen tile in a wide variety of materials that will work in your home. Based on style and maintenance, the best tile for you is the one that fits your needs and lifestyle.

  • The strength and durability are the biggest advantages that wood-look tile has over hardwood flooring, especially in the kitchen. It won’t scratch or need refinishing like a hardwood floor. If you want the appearance of natural wood with the durability and easy-to-clean quality of ceramic tile, we offer a variety of wood-look tile options that can create the very same style.

  • Tile is ideal for high-traffic areas like your kitchen because it is very durable. Porcelain and ceramic tile are hard, resilient materials that are great choices. Natural stone like marble, travertine and slate also offer phenomenal durability. Luxury Vinyl Flooring is waterproof and scratch-resistant, making it a great option for kitchens.

  • Make sure you choose a non-acidic, antibacterial cleaner for both man-made and natural stone tiles. The Tile Shop offers ceramic and porcelain and natural stone cleaners.

  • Learn about current trends and kitchen tile design ideas here.

  • It depends on the material. Pet owners love The Tile Shop’s porcelain and ceramic floor tiles because they stand up against scratches. A softer marble or slate may not be the best choices for homes with pets because they have the potential to scratch.

  • With the variety of finishes and colors available, you never need to worry about finding something to coordinate with your kitchen cabinets and counters. Schedule a design consultation with a senior design associate, and make sure to bring in photos of your current space, your fixtures (such as countertop and cabinet samples or swatches) and any inspiration you have to get expert advice on matching.

  • If you have white cabinets, you have a blank slate and almost limitless options for your flooring. You can choose to complement or contrast your cabinets with your tile flooring or channel a particular design style, like modern farmhouse or transitional. The design possibilities are endless, so explore our website or head in to The Tile Shop to plan your project today.
