Kitchen tile remodel inspirations and ideas

Many of us have spent a lot of time in our kitchens since March of 2020. That time may have caused a few of us to look at those spaces for cooking and gathering with new eyes … and has probably prompted more than a few of us to think about ways to make our kitchens more welcoming, functional, and beautiful.

I’m certainly not immune, even though I completely renovated my own home’s kitchen just a few years ago. So when I had the chance to join the U.S. delegation to an international ceramic tile show in Bologna, Italy — a 600 exhibitor and 62,000 visitor event called CERSAIE — in October, well, that was an easy yes (especially since I was already going to be on that side of the pond anyway!). While I love all things kitchen in general, my ulterior motive was to seek inspiration for the kitchen of a Victorian home I’m remodeling in Beechmont and the kitchenettes of some apartments I’m transforming to long-stay hospitality offerings (Yes, when I’m not writing, I’m running renovations and lodging!).
