How to Add Texture to Your Kitchen

Are you thinking about designing your new kitchen or redesigning your existing kitchen? When it comes to planning the design, you may have the layout completed and the colour scheme chosen but do you know where you will introduce texture? There are many ways to add this element that will enhance the overall feel of the room. Below we have outlined a few texture types that complement the kitchen space.


The kitchen is the centrepiece of your home, where you entertain, cook and congregate with friends. The last thing you want is for this space to feel dull. Sometimes keeping everything sleek, shiny and one colour isn’t the best way to go about it. Adding texture to the kitchen space will elevate the room to create a place you’re going to want to spend all your time in.
It can be as simple as using a bit of colour within your space, maybe a pop of wooden tones like in this gorgeous kitchen. The use of wood finished stools harmonising with both the featured woodgrain shelves using our Tawa Woodgrain and the touches of a matte black fridge and sink.
Woodgrain is a prevalent flooring texture in the kitchen; trends that we have seen in 2021 are dark and neutral tones.

The look of the woodgrain with the knots and grain lines create a subtle texture along with a modern, sleek look and bring natural warmth to the room. There are a lot of types of woodgrain that each hold unique characteristics. So choosing the colour will largely depend on the rest of your kitchen palette and style.


In this kitchen, the tiles are the statement piece. Going bold with your tiling choice is a great way to add texture to your kitchen, in the form of large subway tiles or, on-trend at the moment, the scalloped tiles. To avoid a busy tiling pattern overpowering the kitchen, keep it to a small space or just one wall to keep it as a feature accent. The tiles’ colour scheme harmonises with the wooden flooring and the contrast white cabinetry balances the texture and colour.

Ceramic tiles are great because they are at the cheaper end of the tile price range. They come in various colours and textures, allowing you to get the finish you are after. Porcelain tiles are more expensive as they use different clay materials. These tiles can be beautifully polished to create different design textures, whether you want a shiny finish or a matte look. These textures can create completely different looks in your home. Terra Cotta tiles can be great in country style kitchens as they have a raw texture that brings warmth into the room.


If you want to increase the texture within your current home, there are plenty of ways for you to do that without having to redesign your kitchen. Incorporating wood through seating and accessories can bring in that extra depth to your current kitchen space. Having an eye-catching contrast by mixing and matching textures provides a focal point that a room needs. Don’t forget to think of the more minor details when designing your kitchen; making slight alterations may make the most significant difference. Things like your handles, lighting fixtures and placement accessories are easy ways to revamp your kitchen.
