Installing PORCELAIN TILES for your kitchen walls can be a daunting task, but if you follow our tile installation methods, you too can achieve a uniform, clean, and precise tile installation which will be easy to maintain for times to come!
A pre-installation question that always arises in customers’ minds is: – What should be the height of tiles for kitchen walls with no wall-mounted furniture? The answer to this question is abstract and highly depends upon the type of space and the desired aesthetics. However, it is pretty much obvious that lesser wall furnishings allow more freedom to design and selection of sizes.
Whether you love a simple & sophisticated all-white design or long for a bold & popping theme, today’s sleek and modern kitchen designs are winning hearts across continents. Taking our cue from the voguish trend of today, we suggest GLOSSY-PORCELAIN TILES for a totally modern kitchen wall covering. A very light palette with vibrant colors and distinctive shapes, sizes and patterns, makes GLOSSY-PORCELAIN TILES perfect for a modern design scheme. In kitchens, however, the wall-mounted furniture holds its exclusive primacy and so a sense of balance is very necessary. The current trend screams the “less is more” designing philosophy, advocating the unique visual impact of a minimalistic approach. Dark-light color contrasts define this kind of scheme elaborately; for instance: – if you use dark shaded furnishings, it is suggested to use light-colored Glossy tiles for both walls /floors, and vice versa. Simply put, you should choose one color to dominate and a second shade to support. This distinction of colors from each other in close proximity adds depth and visual weight to your kitchen, and summon wonderful results!
Before you decide on the type of cladding material for your kitchen walls, it’s crucial to ensure that it meets your criteria. For, example, if you are an Indian, obviously your nature cooking involves a daily splatter of oils/spices on the walls, especially in the immediate proximity of the stove, which can spoil the look of your kitchen. To sustain the modern look in this type of condition, wall cladding is very important. There are many wall cladding materials today that are gaining prevalence today; to discuss a few, let us begin with-
1)CERAMIC TILES which are cost-effective, come in endless colors, patterns, and finishes, including smooth, textured, glossy or matte, making them easy to coordinate with the other décor elements; however, water infiltration is the drawback associated with this type of tiles.
2)LAMINATES that give an easy-to-wipe minimalistic look but lacks elegance in some sense. Next comes the Self-Adhesive Tiles for Kitchens A.K.A Peel & Stick Tiles, which are easy to install, and are an innovative product on their own; however, they lack durability, which can’t be overlooked in a kitchen.
3)EPOXY RESINS have also gained much interest recently but they too come with the drawback of cracking if the wall surface isn’t leveled.
4)Finally, it is PORCELAIN TILES that come to the rescue when elements like patterns, colors, durability, and maintenance need to be won over! One of the favorite materials of choice for kitchen walls and floors: in particular, the use of slabs of large size that open up a totally new horizon of versatility-in both form & function! Thanks to their inherent qualities of being hard-wearing, anti-bacterial, and non-absorbent, PORCELAIN TILES are best for areas like kitchens.

Cooking splatters, food mess, general dirt, dust, and grease are some of the worst offenders in kitchens. Since Kitchen Coverings are the heart of the home and a spot where we spend most of our time, keeping the tiles in good condition will make a big difference in making it brighter and more inviting.
Kitchen Coverings floor tiles may get a little messed up and have some tougher stains on them due to the heavy traffic and unintentional spills that could go unnoticed. To ensure they are sparkling, follow the following instructions:
Before washing the kitchen floor, vacuum it to remove any extra dirt and debris. Scrub the floor with a microfiber soft cloth or a mop, depending on your preference, by using a high-quality floor cleaner mixed with hot water. Allow the floor to dry and avoid walking on it until it is fully dry! If you find any areas that need additional attention, repeat the procedure until you are satisfied.
Grout is by far the most difficult part of a tile to clean and can quickly fade over time as a result of consistent exposure to dirt/grease in the Kitchen Coverings. Even if your tiles are sparkling, discolored grout will cause your kitchen to look dull.
To clean grouts; make a paste by mixing baking soda and warm water. If you want, you can substitute warm water for the white vinegar! Then, scrub the grout between the tiles thoroughly with your toothbrush. Allow the paste to sit for 30 minutes before removing it with warm water and a clean cloth. Repeat in areas that need additional attention.
Remember, if you adhere to these simple steps regularly, cleaning your kitchen tiles can become much simpler and less of a chore. This will prevent dirt buildup and keep your kitchen looking new and clean daily.
To prevent the last tedious chore of cleaning the grout, a final tip to keep in mind while choosing kitchen wall tiles or floor tiles is to select tiles that do not have joints. Let’s take a look at why this decision is a smart one.
Firstly, no joints between tiles mean good hygiene as cleaning the joints is a difficult task that’s never completely effective as dirt and dust get accumulated. Besides, if the space is humid, salts will accumulate in joints.
Secondly, laying kitchen tiles without joints creates a smooth, seamless, and continuous look to the kitchen, elevating the kitchen’s visual appeal.
Now that your confusions are cleared and you might have received a clear understanding of how to choose the furnishings, coverings, claddings, and tiles for your kitchen, you’re well on your way to enriching your home with convenience, modernity, and impeccable ideas!
