A bright and charming basement kitchen creates a coherent scheme with each colour complementing the next. A white Corian work top wraps around grey silk finished lacquered cupboard doors and draws. The look is complete with hexagonal terracotta floor tiles that bounce off the original brick work above the oven adding a traditional element.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
A twist on terracottaLovers of classic country style will maintain that quarry tiles have never gone out of fashion, but this modest material is set to reach a whole new audience. Thanks to the trend for everything organic and earthy, terracotta – in all its incarnations, from pots to paint colours – looks set to be huge news in 2017.
Turn back to terracottaThere’s nothing quite like the earthy, warm colour of terracotta to create a cosy, homely feel. Reclaimed and antique terracotta tiles will add texture and colour to a space, and come in a variety of hues, from pale honey to rich reds. Some tiles can also have an interesting marbled effect because of the mixture of clays. Remember that terracotta tiles should be sealed and finished with a wax polish, and regular waxing will enhance their natural colour and protect against staining.See more kitchens with terracotta tiles here.
