Topps Tiles, who, it turns out, have a really inspiring catalogue. The striking combination of metro titles on the wall and square floor tiles on the cover shot (idea one) pulled me in straight away; note how the look is prevented from becoming too busy through the use of a simple two colour palette. The second idea that inspired me was this 50/50 pattern split across the splashback tiling - I love the exotic, Mediterranean feel it evokes. It's rare that I'm drawn to very muted palettes yet the mix and match approach of subtle, soft-hued ceramic glazed tiles in idea three results in a cohesive, calm and interesting splashback. The red tiles of number four are similar to the metro tiles of idea one but are more elongated, which creates a greater feel of modernity and less industrial. By extending the tiling away from the kitchen top to the whole wall creates a bold kitchen statement. Finally, and in stark contrast, we see how using small square tiles with delicate pattern detailing is perfect for a country kitchen look. My mum has a country kitchen and loves look number five best. As for Mr. Bazaar's fave? I can't pick between idea one and two. Which is your favourite?
