How to raise the oomph factor in your kitchen with patterned tiles

How to raise the oomph factor in your kitchen with patterned tiles

Giving your home the oomph factor is not a facile task. It is crucial to achieve the perfect balance of smart designing and the want to exude luxury in every corner. Sometimes, an overdo of either can make your home look too flashy or too dull. 

One of the major contributing factor to making your home look chic is the flooring. Tiles come in to picture when you want a flooring that complements the lighting, ceiling or the walls. But, the potential of good tiles paved the way for interior designers and architects to play with tiles on the walls and other unexpected areas of a home.  Pretty much every beautiful house has its fair share of tiles on walls, floors, ceilings, kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, foyers and lots of other rooms. Tiles are versatile and favourite amongst designers.


  1. Focus on the floor

Just think about it. The floor is one of the largest swaths of real estate in your kitchen. Instead of going for the typical plain porcelain tile or wood flooring, try and take advantage of this large surface by adding a patterned tile for style and character. 

2. Stress your backsplash

Kitchen backsplashes often are a single and solid colour. You might take this opportunity instead to display some character with an interesting patterned tile like this.

3. Style your stove

If devoting to a patterned tile on the floor or entire backsplash seems too awful, look to the wall behind your stove or cooktop. The simple patterned tile on the small space behind the stove pops up into a stylish feature and makes a huge impact in this kitchen.

4. Decorate your open shelves

If you have open shelving or are considering this minimal storage option in your kitchen, try devoting the large space behind the shelves to patterned tile. This combo can really customise a kitchen.

6. Deck the walls

To get a maximum payoff for your patterned tile, look to all your kitchen walls as an alternative. These decoratively tiled walls not only resemble wallpaper but are easier to clean and more durable.

When it comes to renovating a kitchen, choosing a countertop can be a difficult decision. The countertop is often the largest surface area in the kitchen and has a major impact on the look and feel of the room.

It’s a huge decision, choosing a material for your kitchen countertop. Huge both in terms of cost and in their impact on the aesthetics and practical function of your kitchen. Top-end, premium kitchen countertop materials are a significant part of a kitchen remodeling budget. A well-chosen countertop makes your kitchen more useful and easier to maintain, and it can also serve as an important design element of your kitchen.

Simple rules to keep into consideration while

choosing Kitchen Countertops:

  • Here at G. H. Karia, we recommend the use of 12 and 20 mm thick slabs for countertops. These thicknesses make it possible to create several types of edging that match different design styles.


  • Along with that, we recommend a radius of at least 2 mm. The greater the radius, the better it will bear any impacts, but there will also be more base colour in the slab. In areas with a high risk of impact (sinks, for example), a 2 mm radius edging is recommended as this is the best option for the look and durability. The edging shown here can also be applied to angles.



Imagine a kitchen surface that not only splashes luxury into your kitchen but is also superior in adaptability and practicality – G. H. Karia presents you our range of quartz kitchen surfaces by Caesarstone that provides an individualistic edge to your kitchens.

A perfect surface is like the icing on the cake – it’s the final touch; your own personal signature. The creativity experts have designed a unique collection of quartz surfaces, creating more colours, styles and combinations than you can imagine; ensuring that you get exactly what you have in mind.

Caesarstone has pioneered the use of quartz – one of nature’s hardest and most abundant minerals. The unique mixture of ground quartz aggregates, pigments and polymers proved to be components necessary to produce surfaces that last a lifetime.

These surfaces are developed with cutting-edge technology integrated with exceptional quality while keeping in mind the latest trends in colours and designs. 




  • Made from one of the hardest minerals on earth, quartz countertops are arguably the most durable option for kitchens as Quartz is the 4th hardest mineral on the planet with the added benefit of being more flexible making them less likely to chip or crack.


  • They are anti-microbial. e. Resin binders make quartz counters nonporous, so stain- and odour-causing bacteria, mould, and mildew can’t penetrate the surface. They never need sealant or special cleaning products.


  • They are scratch-resistant.e., Unlike natural stones, quartz countertops are scratch-resistant which is why you do not have to worry about dealing with damaged surfaces. It is ideal for homes where there are kids.


  • Various Finishes. e. Another advantage of using quartz to line your countertop is that it can replicate a number of different finishes. This can include wood, lamination, and even tiles.


  • Customized Colours.e. We all know how expensive coloured natural stones can be which usually makes them unaffordable. But by opting for quartz as a lining material, you will be able to incorporate customized colour tones into your countertop.
