Jaipur Blue Pottery Tiles in the Kitchen

Gargi Nanjanath

Hello!

I am keen on using Jaipur Blue Pottery Tiles in the kitchen of my flat. I want to use bright colours such as the ones attached, but I fear that using only these will make the kitchen go over the top on pattern and look like a jumbled mess. These tiles are 6" x 6". What colour, size and dimension of complementary tiles would you suggest I use to offset these?

Thanks in advance!
Gargi

    Jaipur blue and summery yellow work brilliantly together. I used precisely those blue Jaipur tiles but so as not tooverdo it, I used them as accents with a base of white, and added splashes of blue and yellow in the cabinetry. Then, just for fun, I painted one wall entirely yellow

    Hello there,


    Jaipur blue pottery would look good on any surface provided the decor must be of great contrast.


    You could use them to highlight walls and floors too. Warm tones of wood, neutral solids, textured tiles all would go well. If you are interested, you must install one!

    @Aurum Ideas+Spaces - thank you for the great suggestions! I am looking to maximize the light in the kitchen, so I want to go for white tiles interspersed with the blue pottery tiles, with a big splash of blue pottery tiles under the chimney as suggested by the very helpful Cornerstone Design Studio! I want to have 3-layer shallow open pinewood shelving (I feel like depth is useless at that height; you end up groping around for things you can't see), and pale blue cabinetry, both under the counter as well as above the open shelving.
    I have attached a very poorly taken picture of the kitchen as it stands today - do you think these ideas will work well?

    Hello there,


    You're good to go with the plan as the existing wall tiles and whites would play a vital role in contrasts and shading.


    Since you have opted for pinewood shelves, blue would go incredibly well with it. However, a depth of 4-5" is suggested for safety of glass jars and spice cans.


    As for the backsplash, deeper hues are suggested. You could also add a pinch of blue to the floor as a highlight/ carpet.


    Overall, the plan will work flawlessly. Just be sure to choose the right shades of blue.

    Here are some lovely ways to use blue tiles in both dado and floor. It will work with white cabinets or pine

    Gargi,


    There is one issue with open shelving in this Kitchen. Your Chimney duct ( Which is going to be a long one here) cannot be hidden using open shelves. Hope you have a given that a thought.


    Thanks

    Hey Amit,

    Would it be possible to have it directed through the closed loft cabinets?

    Thanks,

    you can of course guide the chimney duct through closed loft cabinets. In cases where there are no lofts, you can make a plywood boxing to cover the duct and paint it as shown in the second picture. It looks quite ok since your eye doesn't notice that so much. But when the boxing runs over closed upper cabinets, you won't notice it at all. I've shown all three possibilities here

    Yes, as GJ advised it is easier with cabinets. Even open shelves looks good but you may have to be creative about chimney ducting.

    Hello there,

    If you do opt for open shelving, here's a tweak :

    Semicircular sawn pine wood planks placed in 3-4 layers with a semicircular backing would serve as a heat insulator and a storage rack as well.

    It would also merge with your decor. Else try concealing with cabinets.

    Also, you need to select a slim model with powerful suction to be able to achieve the overall setup.

    Here is a badly drawn rough version of what I'm imagining. I'm hoping the tiles will look much brighter in real life! But I'd like the blue loft cabinets to hide the chimney duct if possible. And of course, I'd like more open shelves - 3 rows, if I can fit them in

    If you are keen in using these Jaipur blue pottery tiles then you have to change the entire home setup by using this blue color.eg tea cups Crockery similiar color,Bedsheets similiar entire walls painting in the same color every thing from A to Z then see how your home look.You might not have ever thought of it.

    @Saranjit Singh - I wouldn't necessarily say the whole home, but I do plan to use blue pottery jars and things for my spices and other items. I'd like to have two base colours for the house - red, and blue. I'll play around with them, certain rooms will have a blue theme and others red, and I'll switch them up every now and then :)

    I love your blue pottery tiles. where did u get them and how much did they cost. the hand made ones are too expensive I felt and take too long to be ready!

    @Rock Doc: Are you addressing this to me? I haven't actually bought these tiles yet - when I do, I will definitely be going for the handmade ones. They're a work of art and irreplaceable in my opinion.
    However, there are also screen-printed tiles available in the market in more or less the same patterns; the workmanship is of course different, but you get them cheaper, and they're also more easily available. You could give that a shot. I'd recommend Aakaar Flooring Solutions - they're here on Houzz and are able to provide both the above-mentioned types.
