There was a time when it was common to see kitchen countertops covered with tiles, as it seems that the trend is returning and not only for rustic and ethnic kitchens. Also in current designs it is possible to see this trend lately. Let's take a look at some proposals.
Modern Nordic style kitchen with the front and the counter with the same tiles. To add contrast, the grout was made with gray cement.
Here instead the joints have been made in white to create an effect of white uniformity that contrasts with the black cabinets.
Tiles and gray grout for this Scandinavian style kitchen with an important retro air.
For vintage kitchens this way of solving the countertop is very successful.
Another idea is that which aims to create a certain contrast between the countertop and the front of the kitchen. Either combining two types of different tiles or another material.
Here two different types of tiles have been combined in both finish and color and size.
In this kitchen it has been preferred to use cement tiles for the countertop and to use mosaic tiles for the front.
On this occasion, white tiles with different placement have been used, in addition a border with blue tiles with vegetal and bird motifs has been created on the front.
In this Portuguese beach house, tiles in different tones have been used with a small bond.
These white rectangular tiles look great in this contemporary style kitchen.
For the worktop from this house on the beach glass tiles have been used to recreate the effect of the sea.
Possibly it is in outdoor kitchens where these solutions with tiles have remained in force.
Color and shine for a kitchen that certainly does not go unnoticed. It has left the smooth color for the countertop and the combination of patterns and colors for the front.
Another striking example in which color is the main protagonist.
As we are seeing it is in the most classic kitchens where there is a greater use of color in the tile countertops.
In the most current style is opted for white or failing by a neutral tone like these gray tiles.
