Tiles are among the most durable and practical options for flooring, they can stand a lot of things easily and look cool. The only thing that can happen to tiles is breaking but you need to drop something really heavy to break them. Choose eye-catchy patterns and looks, the tiles can be the same as on the backsplash or some contrasting ones. If you want a peaceful look, choose neutral-colored tiles for floor décor; there are tiles imitating wood for those who want a warm touch.

Concrete can crack: that’s a risk that comes along with concrete countertops, most commonly when poured in place rather than pre-cast. To prevent it, you may add fiber reinforcement, rebar, and/or wire mesh but if they still appear, they can be repaired. Concrete backsplashes require maintenance. Reseal your backsplash every one to three years, avoid abrasive cleaners and scrubbers that can damage sealer. Consider all these pros and cons and decide if concrete is worth it or not.

You may go for the wood in some similar color as copper and get a cozy warm-colored kitchen or create a contrasting look with bold cabinetry and a copper backsplash. A shiny copper piece will spruce up any space and add a bit of glam and chic, and if you light up the backsplash, it will reflect it and look even more attractive. Metal copper backsplashes are very functional, easy to maintain and look cool – they add a shiny or textural feel to the kitchen.

If you have really a small kitchen, you should choose white for it – it will seem bigger and airier, even if it’s very narrow and long. Add skylights or more windows to fill the space with light and make it seem even bigger.

You can’t deny how elegant and classy this kitchen looks. When going for a frosty feel it’s best to use highlights rather than an overall shade of pale blue. Pastel colours have been running riot over the past year or so. From mint green, to candy pink, to luscious lemon; these shades are enough to make your mouth water. I don’t know about you, but I can just picture a doting mother and her daughter baking cupcakes in a kitchen like this.

You will often see versions that feature glass tiles, mosaics, stone or ceramic. It’s an element that represents a way of expressing the personal preferences and personality of the homeowner.
