What color for wall & floor tiles please?
July 23, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi all, would like to maintain the kitchen cabinets and counter top. However, simply can't stand the wall and floor tiles! Would love to freshen up and update the kitchen. Any suggestions please? Thank u!

They have tiles that are neutral colors with silver tiles in the mix from Home Depot. I love them. They have square and rectangle.- backsplash

Modern cabinets almost demand something more contemporary. We did vinyl flooring for our bathroom and it looks great. I would look for something that doesn't look like tile or wood. All a solid color, or a concrete look(large all over pattern) Same for the backsplash- Something smooth and contemporary.

What about something like this for the floor tile and backsplash to tie in with the cabinets and dark countertop?

A glass tile in soft greens or seaglass blue colors would be beautiful. Paint above the cabinets. If you like the flooring in the adjacent room, install it in this room too. You're starting with nice cabinets & countertop - good luck!

Hi...I agree with Sullivan Design, glass tiles would be very similar to the glass cabinet doors you have, in that watery aqua. It would be helpful to see the rooms close to your kitchen to know what the floor should be.

A dark floor like the one you picked out would look great and I like the mix you found but think you may need to find a beach glass element to tie in the glass front cabinets.

I don't think the current aqua glass doors really compliment your cabinets but reeded glass doors would be awesome!

Island Stone has a tile called Frangipani that is the perfect seaglass color. Not shiny but matte instead. I installed in a modern kitchen and it looks fantastic. Looks better than pic when on the vertical. Frosty

Thanks everyone! Really appreciate the suggestions! I think i would maintain the seaglass on the cabinets and go with the tiles Keitha suggested. : )
