If you fear even the biggest mop-thrusting spring clean is not going to be enough to breathe new life into your tired-looking kitchen, you may be thinking that it’s time for a change. If the budget won’t stretch to new work tops, cupboards and appliances, fear not. There is a really easy way to add some renewed vigour that is fairly cheap and quick to do. Just change the tiles or add some new ones if your kitchen is relatively tile-free right now. It’s a great way to add a new splash of colour and a really practical option if you want to make future grease and grime easy to wipe away. Here are six great looks that could transform your kitchen in a flash.
Zesty lime is a great kitchen colour, and one that is guaranteed to add some vigour to any room. There are few wall colours that it won’t complement, so you’re free to be as subtle or as bold as you like. Go for a complete wall filled with Metro Lime tiles for a sunny arena on even the dullest of days, or create your own bespoke pattern with a mixture of bright colours and patterns. Alternatively, simply combine the lime with sparkling white or shiny black for an instant atmosphere boost that is sure to wake you up in the morning before the kettle has boiled. If you’re feeling fruity but want a warmer tone than lime, juicy orange is hard to beat. Some well-positioned Waterloo Orange Tiles by Urban Chic will put an instant smile on your face every time you enter the room and would be great at hiding the odd food splatter until your next clean. You can’t beat bold colours for boosting vibrancy and vigour even when natural light is at a minimum – a problem in many kitchens.
Patterns are another great way of adding interest to a wall without your having to fork out a fortune on expensive kitchen art. For a traditional look, you can’t go wrong with some stylish Minton Hollins Classical Alice Blue Gloss Decor, or add style without being over-fussy with some chequered Beige Glass and Stone Tiles. If a funky modern kitchen is what you want, check out some striking Lush Lipstick Glass Mosaic tiles or a sparkling Stardust Quartz Red Mosaic. Cooking will never be boring in a kitchen that looks this good.
