Unusual kitchen tile flooring is currently trending, especially in cool colors such as blues, grays, and greens. Whichever shade you choose, cool hues inspire feelings of calmness and tranquility, while a tile design will add visual interest to your kitchen flooring.
Here are seven “cool” kitchen floor tile ideas from Instagram to help you explore your options.
Blue and Gray Marble-Look Tile
The look of marble is always an elegant style, but this isn’t a marble look you’ve ever seen before.
Large gray porcelain tiles with dramatic blue, brown, and black veining steal the show in this minimalist kitchen, leaving no need for additional decoration. Alternating the direction of the veining makes the design even more unique.

Green and Blue Outdoor Kitchen Tile
Vintage Hexagon Tile
White hexagon mosaic tile flooring became popular during the Victorian era and is a bit more rare to see these days. This floral motif in white and grays brings back an historical beauty with a contemporary twist
Turquoise Hexagon Tile Mosaic
Another hexagon mosaic, but a completely different look. This kitchen pairs the vintage design with bright turquoise and contrasting grout for a very cool effect.
Intricate Blue Tile Mosaic
Proportions matter most in the kitchen! This blue and white tile overlapping circular mosaic models the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius’s description of perfect proportions. The result is a visually stimulating design that’s both a playful and stylish kitchen floor.
