Kitchen countertops should be comfortable for cooking and durable, and also correspond to the kitchen décor. We’ve already shared some ideas for cool countertops, and today we’re sharing some more ideas: this is a retro trend coming back – tile kitchen countertops.
Such countertops enjoyed a lot of popularity in the 1980s, and now this idea is hot and trendy again. There are various kinds of tiles to try: wooden, concrete, stone, porcelain, glass and many others, so you have a wide choice. Here everything depends on the kitchen décor, colors and looks, and durability you need, for example, marble, stone and concrete tiles are the most long-lasting. The good thing is that you can install most of such countertops yourself, there are a lot of tutorials to try.
There are two ways to rock such tiles: make the same countertops and backsplash or go for contrasting tiles or other materials for the backsplash. Covering the countertops and backsplashes or even walls with the same tiles is the most popular idea to get a harmonious look. Such décor is stylish and definitely repeats the old trend, and to make your tiles stand out even more you can use grout with a different shade, for example, grey grout for white tiles or beige grout for grey tiles.
Another idea is creating a contrast between the backsplash and countertops. Incorporate textures and colors that are in your kitchen décor or create a bold contrast with the cabinets. The tiles can be of the same color but different design to tie them up, or of the same design but contrasting colors for a bold look. You can also cover the countertops with tiles and the backsplash with metal sheets or other materials that fit your décor.
