When designing your kitchen, an important decision to make is what type of flooring you will install. The flooring will set the mood of your kitchen, so choosing a versatile option is key. Ceramic floor tile is durable, easy to maintain, and a beauty to look at, so it’s the perfect option for a kitchen floor.

1. Accent Floor Tile

First on the list of kitchen floor tile ideas is creating an accent floor tile design. If you aren’t totally in love with the idea of tile taking up all of the kitchen, then choose a smaller portion of the floor and have some fun with the design. This home theater shows how a little tile goes a long way, especially when adding a whimsical pattern and multiple glaze colors. The vibrant 3”x3” Subway tiles add a playful focal point to this kitchenette area and makes us think of retro movie theater floors.
