Manufacturing ceramic tile requires large amounts of energy because the tiles are fired twice. Installing ceramic tile can affect indoor air quality (IAQ). To protect air quality, install tiles with solvent-free mastic on a durable, rot-proof surface such as cement backer board. Also choose grout sealers free of formaldehyde and low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Ceramic tile is easy to clean, heatproof and available in a wide range of colors, textures and designs. It`s also durable and can contain recycled content such as glass, porcelain, salvaged ceramic scrap or feldspar tailings. Using ceramic tile does create an uneven counter surface, however. Individual tiles can easily chip or crack, and grout can stain. Costs vary widely based on the tile choice and difficulty of installation.
Color is something else to consider when trying to come up with a good small kitchen design. You may want to try to find colors that will make your small kitchen space comfortable, warm, inviting and most importantly seem larger. Lighter or white colors tend to make a kitchen appear to be larger. Most light kitchens have a dark base making the kitchen seem more spacious than it actually is. White, silver, and cream are commonly used lighter colors in a small kitchen when designing. You can use these colors alone or mix them together. A white kitchen design may have silver appliances such as a refrigerator or sink. Or it can simply be a white kitchen with metallic accents would be appealing.
