Dreaming of bold, bright, and beautiful, or a tale of two surfaces? Contrast kitchens offer endless joy, creating the perfect lively space to drink a morning coffee or cook your evening meal, so here’s a little inspo and the tiles to match!
1) Sky Blue and Tangerine Dream
This counter to ceiling backsplash carves out a colourful kitchen corner with aqua kite tiles that pair perfectly with the intensely orange oven and hood. Get the look with Glacier Bay Hexite tiles from Fireclay Tile, Kite Blue from CTD Architectural Tiles, or Kite from New Terracotta.
2) Peach and Sage
Soft shades of sage and turquoise and delicate peachy pinks partner up in this kitchen of comforting contrast. Get the look with 1082 from Mosaic Factory, Desert Bloom from Zia Tile, or Bejmat Ecru Rose from Otto Tiles & Design.
3) Gold, Teal, and Papaya
Colour blocking is the name of the game int his kitchen, zoning out a few areas in pinky papaya shades, deep teal, and glossy gold tiles. Get the look with Giardinetto Sun from Claybrook Studio, Mustard Yellow Letterbox Brick Tiles from Terrazzo Tiles, or BPBCVZB01 from Blueprint Ceramics.
4) Wood and Sea
Find comfort in warm shades of wood and a deep blue wall in this cosy kitchen. Get the look with Riad Blue Gloss Porcelain from Mandarin Stone, Blue Velvet from Fireclay Tile, or Tetris Ocean from Ceramica Sant’Agostino.
5) Dusty Blue and Terracotta
Pairing a sot dusty blue with burnt orange terracotta creates a kitchen contrast that speaks of the Mediterranean in a simple, modern style. Get the look with Vita Azzurro from Ceramica Sant’Agostino, Altea Ash Blue from Equipe, or Retford Blue Gloss from Victorian Plumbing.
