Kitchens are great places for patterned tiles. In Filipino homes, the kitchen receives lots of foot traffic from guests and family, making it an ideal place to casually get together and share stories.
There’s no doubt that you would want your kitchen to be beautiful. After all, who wouldn’t want to have a kitchen that sparks inspiration, creativity, and conversation? So to help you out, here are some kitchen tile designs in the Philippines you can use in your lovely abode.
Homey, Comfortable, and Thematic Colors
Color psychology states that certain colors make us feel certain things. When it comes to stimulating the appetite, there’s no better color than orange. The colors orange, red and brown are associated with food, soil, and various other natural and healthy things.
Just take a look at our project above with Happy Nest in the Tropics. The backsplash on the walls features Tile 103 in the contrasting colors of blue and orange, and the floor is tiled with Tile 106 in a red-and-orange pattern. Doesn’t the whole area just look so warm, cozy, and functional? Perfect for cooking up a meal, isn’t it?
A Dash of Clean Cuts and Lines
If the color orange whets the appetite, the colors blue and white symbolize cleanliness and purity, respectively. Wouldn’t you love a kitchen that’s neat and clean no matter what? Whether or not that’s truly the case at all times of the day (post-meal-prep included), your kitchen can still look the part with blue and white patterned tiles.
Elle Uy Decor used that exact custom color scheme for Tile 178 in the project featured above. See how the lines look so crisp and orderly, while the colors perfectly showcase the clean floor. Those tiles are surely well-maintained to keep them looking that way!
A Touch of Tradition in a Modern Space
Patterned tiles have the reputation of being traditional, but that doesn’t mean they’re out of style! As a matter of fact, they offer a great balance to a room that’s modern and minimalist with intricate details and repeating patterns.
Take a look at our project with Gaston Architecture Studio. See how the traditional flair of Tile 081 makes the room come to life amid the wide windows, minimalist aesthetics, and stark colors—all usual traits of a modern home. You can say this kitchen has achieved the perfect middle ground between both styles.
Monochromatic but with Style
We know that we’ve featured tiles with a lot of colors in the previous sections of this blog. But patterns aren’t limited to color combinations. Sometimes, the best pattern comes out in something monochromatic. We’ve put that theory to the test when making our embossed tiles at Machuca, and we’re glad to say the effort paid off so well!
See for yourself how elegant, delicate, and clean this kitchen designed by Silong Dekor is. With Embossed Tile 036 in White, it doesn’t need a lot of colors to be absolutely striking—and what a lovely picture it makes when paired with gold fixtures and blank spaces. If you’re into art, then you can see just how negative spaces have made this room all the more beautiful.
Details that Call Attention
Is there any question that at Machuca, we love a good patterned floor tile? See how striking Tile 037 is on this kitchen designed by Open House Design. Fitting in perfectly with its black-and-white color scheme, it elevates the whole room into something that’s worth remembering, from ceiling to intricately-patterned floor!

The Same Tile in Different Ways
Sometimes, the same tile can work in multiple ways depending on the style of a room. One of our clients’ favorites when it comes to kitchens is Tile 130, which you can see lining the counter of our project with Keluarga Villas in the first picture, and the floor of the kitchen designed by Ocampo Interiors in the second.
See how the black-and-white tile offsets the brown rattan furniture and fixtures in Keluarga, with its floral pattern accenting the natural aesthetic of the whole room. On the other hand, the dark green drawers and pristine white cupboards chosen by Ocampo Interiors perfectly balance the intricate details of the tile. A masterpiece on both counts, indeed!
More than places meant for preparing and serving food, kitchens have become places of refuge for many growling stomachs and hungry souls. Kitchens see many people come in hungry and come out happy, proving that they’re some of the most uplifting and cheerful rooms in the house.
