Floor Tile: Step up your Kitchen Style

Floor Tile: Step up your Kitchen Style

You've likely considered tile for your kitchen backsplash, but what about for your floors? We get a lot of questions about if our tile is suitable for flooring and the answer is: Yes, of course! Tile has been a popular choice for flooring for centuries and for good reason: it's durable, easy to clean and it looks good too. From our Thin Glazed Brick to our Tile to our Handpainted Collections you are bound to find a tile that suits your style. Below, we'll walk you through our products that are suitable for residential kitchens, along with design inspiration (visit our Pinterest Board if you want more).

From rustic to modern, our Thin Glazed Brick is well suited for an array of kitchen styles. We love the mix of tile and brick in the installation below.

A classic, yet compelling choice, a herringbone pattern in brick adds visual interest while not overwhelming a space:

In a residential space, you can opt for our White or Recycled Clay Body (more on those here) and from a classic subway size to a geometric shape, you have a lot of options.

Falling hard for both our Glazed Thin Brick in Olympic and our tile in Gypsum, lifestyle blogger Anne Sage paired our two materials for her kitchen renovation:

Pro-tip: Go for a slightly darker grout than your tile color; it will make your chosen pattern pop and saves you from cleaning all the time!

Want a bit more shine? Go for one of our glossy finishes to reflect more light in your space:

Hexagons are a classic choice for tile floors and they look great in kitchens. Go for a single color like this:

Tile Shown: 6" Hexagons in Crater Lake with 2x6 in Crater Lake and Caribbean

Or go for a blend of colors like this:

Tile Shown: 8" Hexagons in Nautical, Shale, Pewter, Cyclone and Daisy.

Go for tile on the walls and the floor. Try our Tusk in a 6x6 (at $18/SF) from our Foundations Collection and pair with our matte black, Basalt for an effect like the one below.

From classic to contemporary, the range of patterns from our Handpainted Collections makes it easy to find the perfect tile for your space. While the detailed nature of these tiles might make you think they are delicate, our handpainted tiles are truly built to last. All patterns are made on our Recycled Clay Body, ensuring a durable, long-lasting tile that is of heirloom quality.

Going for a more traditional or classic look? Take a look at our Cuerda Seca, Mediterranean or Moroccan Collections; all of our patterns can be specified to your desired color palette!

White square tile and handpainted work so well together, as you can see from the backsplash and flooring combination above. Use one of our Foundation sizes (4x4 or 6x6) and pair with something like Vitoria to mimic this kitchen.
