Size: Kitchen wall tiles are usually 100 x 100 mm, but it depends on your own taste. Another popular kitchen wall tile size is rectangular such as 100 x 300 mm, which can be fixed to the wall in a brick pattern. Kitchen floor tiles range from 333 x 333 mm to large format 600 x 300 mm, but there are many different sizes and styles available.
Materials: As we all know, there has been a significant move towards eco friendly and reclaimed materials in recent years. Expect to see reclaimed wood being used as a feature, especially in high end kitchens, even creeping in to modern and contemporary kitchens to add an earthy feel.
On the other hand, the family room, or the social area of the great room is designed in a completely different way. Typically, a beautiful empty room is created and then it is furnished. Instead of lining all the walls with horizontal bands of built-ins (and there are exceptions to this i.e. Frank Lloyd Wright's prairie homes) the wall spaces are interrupted with vertical elements like windows and doors or focal points such as a fireplaces. The walls of the room are separated into vertical segments instead of continuous horizontal bands. At blank wall areas and in the middle of the room, eclectic pieces of furniture create seating arrangements, while the wall-hung artwork and sculptural collectibles on display determine the room's personality. But the wall, floor and ceiling colors and textures permeate between all of these vertical elements acting as the 'glue' that holds the whole design theme together.
