Wall Designs: A beautiful mosaic or other tile design adhered to the kitchen wall is a masterpiece that never goes out of style. Place the tile design above your backsplash behind the stove or on a plain wall. Mosaics and tile designs can follow a decorating theme in your kitchen or just be and abstract arrangement of tiles. Surround a kitchen fireplace or window with a tile design that draws attention to a specific area of the kitchen to display the mosaic or favorite art. Create a picture frame of sorts out of tile that encases the mosaic or a window and is used in place of a traditional wood window frame. Add ceiling spotlights to shine on your tile design.
Floor: Faux hardwood porcelain tiles offer a great flooring option that looks like real wood but is more durable and less fussy than wood floors. Faux wood tiles come in 2-, 3- and 4-inch planks and are a perfect solution for kitchen floors with a lot of traffic. Traditional ceramic tiles in large squares arranged on the floor also give a modern look. These tiles, although gorgeous to look at, may be cold and hard on legs and feet for standing on for long periods of time.
The kitchen is one of the more important rooms of the house. This is not only the place where we cook the food but it is a place where we bond with other family members. The sad thing is most homes nowadays only have small kitchens and it does not leave much room to move around especially if all the family members are there. However, before you go off and ax one of the walls of your kitchen, you can opt for a cheaper alternative and that is to come up with a small kitchen design.
