Kitchen Wall Tiles

Ceramic, in any of its variations, is an essential material for any kitchen due to its high durability and the many design options it offers. Urban-concept kitchens and designer furniture, open-plan kitchens that link up with living or dining rooms, or fully-equipped rustic kitchens. They can all use ideal wall tiles in order to enhance their character.

Practicality and design are the main features contributed by ceramic wall tiles at present and they are fundamental when designing the ideal kitchen project.

Combining pieces with various finishes and colour shades is an interesting decorative resource to give any kitchen personality. Furthermore, new extra-slim free-format ceramic tiles, Xlight, are a true revolution, in addition to being a decorative resource, with all the advantages of traditional ceramic.

Building with ceramic The natural and eco-friendly characteristics of this type of wall tile, as well as a high capacity for thermal and electrical insulation, lend added value to this highly efficient and sustainable material.

Being non-combustible, ceramic wall tiling is also one of the safest materials for kitchens.

FAQs regarding Floor Tiles

At PORCELANOSA we always recommend using a qualified installer, preferably with demonstrable experience, to lay wall tiles.

That said, the main aspects to take into consideration when installing kitchen wall tiles are as follows:

  • Before starting to lay wall tiles, check the information on the packaging and strictly follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Make sure the wall is completely flat and stable and check that it is clean, dry and levelled (using a spirit level).
  • Tile joints shall be at least 2 mm in interiors and 5 mm in exteriors. The use of self-levelling spacers is recommended.
  • The adhesive choice depends on the type and format of the ceramic tile, the fixing background and the intended use. Don't worry if you don't know which type of adhesive to use for which type of tile. You will find the recommended adhesive for each tile on the product page (under ""You will need"").
  • The most recommended tile installation system is thin-bed tile installation, using a notched trowel for spreading the mortar onto the substrate. For tiles larger than 1,000 cm2, the double gluing technique is recommended.
  • Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the adhesives preparation and use. Apply the bonding material with a notched trowel suitable for the size of the chosen tile; check the wetting capacity of the adhesive and press the tile onto the bonding material using a back-and-forth movement.
  • Likewise, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the preparation and use of jointing materials. Make sure that the material and tools chosen will not damage the surface of the ceramic tiles.
  • Wait until the grout starts to dry and clean it with a sponge dampened with clean water, before the jointing material hardens completely.
  • When cleaning, use products that are suitable for the chemical resistance of the tiles; check with the manufacturer for advice on which product to choose.

More detailed information can be found in the Laying Instructions that come with the PORCELANOSA catalogues.

Removing kitchen wall tiles is simple, although very labour-intensive. Follow the instructions below:

  • Close the work area with plastic sheeting and tape to protect kitchen cabinets, worktops and appliances from dust and debris.
  • Remove mouldings, doors and door frames that may interfere with tile removal.
  • Protect yourself with dust masks, safety goggles, ear protection and work gloves. Pay special attention to ceramic fragments, as they can cause cuts.
  • Use metal tools that allow leverage under the tiles, such as scrapers or chisels, hammers or iron mallets, shovels and use wheelbarrows to remove debris.
  • Find a point from which the underside of a tile can be accessed and from which it can be levered out. If this is not possible, break one tile with a sledgehammer to get started.
  • The ease of removing a tile will depend on how it has been glued. Look for hollow areas under the tiles to make it easier.
  • Use a chisel and hammer to remove any adhesive residue fixed to the substrate.
  • Remove ceramic and bonding material residues, taking special care to avoid cuts.
  • Before laying new tiles, check that the stability of the substrate and fixing surface are suitable to receive the new tiling. Where necessary, waterproof again.

There are primers, adhesives and other materials available that can be used directly on the ceramic wall tiling, without the need to remove the tiles. In order to use them, you need to assess the state of the ceramic tile installation and whether the load-bearing capacity of the substrate allows for this.

When tiling a bathroom wall, the first tile should be place against the lowest point of the base you are working to (either the floor, the skirting tile or the ktichen worktop) – use a spirit level to make sure it's perfectly straight. The next tile will be placed next to the first and so on progressively until you have the first line of tiles. For details on the next steps, see the installation video below.

Ceramic wall tiles, in general, do not require any specific maintenance after installation. For daily cleaning, use a damp cloth or sponge, periodically renewing the cleaning water to remove any traces of dirt. The use of hot water considerably facilitates the process, as it accelerates drying time and prevents fingerprints from being marked.

The use of neutral cleaning products, such as Butech's porce-clean, is also recommended. In contrast, cleaners containing waxes in their composition should be avoided, as they end up forming a thin layer on the ceramic tile, which favours the absorption and retention of dirt.

For stains due to specific products or substances, please refer to the table below. It lists the recommended cleaners for each type of tile, depending on the substance that causes the stain:Butech cleaner
