Kitchen Tiles - FAQ

Should you tile before or after fitting worktops?

It is recommended to tile AFTER fitting worktops as a good kitchen fitter will be able to make sure everything lines up.

  1. Fit the worktops.
  2. Fit the tiles and grout them.
  3. Apply a bead of silicone sealant along the join between the tiles and the worktop. This will ensure that liquids etc spilt on the surface will not run down behind the surface and behind the backs of the units.
Should you tile the entire kitchen?

Deciding to tile a whole wall or kitchen area is a design decision as you might be creating a particular look.

Tiling the essential areas of your kitchen is practical due to steamy cooking and grease splatters to heavy foot traffic and high temperatures, durable tiles should always be at the forefront of design decisions in this space. 

Tiling backsplashes and floors are recommended to protect the kitchen from everyday use. As well as protecting, tiles are usually easy to wipe down and clean.

How do I work out how many tiles I need for my kitchen?

First you will need the measurements for either wall or floor area to be tiled. Our tiles are advertised by the square metre so we recommend measuring your area in metres, but our calculator will allow you to enter measurements in different types such as feet and inches which will then calculate the square metres required.

Use the tile calculator on a product page to work out your area or use the links for

Calculating Floor area

Calculating Wall area

Once you know your tiling area measurement you will be able to select the quantity of tiles based on square metres require to cover on the corresponding product page.

What colour tiles make a kitchen look bigger?

White and light colour tiles will always create a sense of space in any room and will reflect more light, making the kitchen look brighter and more open.

Should kitchen tiles be glossy or matt?

You can use gloss or matt tiles in a kitchen.

Gloss or matt as ceramic or porcelain tiles will usually be easy to wipe and clean due to being glazed.

Keep in mind, gloss tiles can easily show up dirt, fingerprints, footprints and wet spots, But are easy to wipe and clean.

Natural stone tiles will require sealing and might be hard to clean if they have a rough matt surface.

How do you match kitchen tiles with countertops?

Countertop and backsplash colours should complement one another.

Consider using a colour wheel to help evaluate your options since it shows you what colours blend nicely together. Or use pinterest as a research tool to find inspiration for your kitchen.

You could choose a backsplash tile that includes a colour that matches the veins or spots of colour in their countertop.

Or you might decide to match the tiles with your cupboard units and let the worktop stand out are a feature.

Are kitchen tiles heat resistant?

Yes tiles are heat resistant but is is not recommended to have high heat directly touching as this and crackle the glaze.

Always ensure that the tiles are a minimum of 3cm from any heat source, and if behind a hob do not let hot pans touch the tile surface. This is to avoid cracking from extreme thermal pressure.

Can kitchen tiles be painted?

Yes there is specialist paint designed for painting tiles available. This will help extend the life of your wall tiles and freshen up your kitchen splashback.

How do I keep my kitchen tiles shiny?

Gloss tiles have a shinny glaze so regular cleaning with water will keep them clean and fresh.

When cleaning tiles use neutral soaps diluted with water or a gentle neutral spray cleaner which cleans without breaking down or removing protective sealers. It's not recommended using aggressive or acidic cleaning products to clean tiles such as CIF/Windolene etc as these can irrevocably mark the tiles.
