All Tiled Up Review
All Tiled Up was begun by an artist whose lifelong fascination with color and design led her to creating the hand-painted tile company. They have been around for about 30 years, and from what can be seen by the pictures in their gallery, their style is mostly utilized in kitchens and especially the backsplash. Their trademark seems to be creating a kind of painting on kitchen tiles behind the oven or sink. These paintings can evoke a French country kitchen ethos, or can represent different herbs or flowers. So, would this company and this kind of design be right for your kitchen? Let’s take a closer look.
Based on the website, it can be plainly seen that their workmanship is excellent and they create works of art in the kitchen. If you are into the French kitchen design aesthetic, this is right up your alley. The paintings of herbs and border designs are all reminiscent of a gorgeous, feminine kitchen in a place like France or Italy. Their paintings look very detailed, and let’s be honest—who wouldn’t want the honor of getting hand painted tiles for your kitchen?
But Would it Work for You?
While the paintings are very beautiful, it would be completely wrong for someone with a modernist or utilitarian bent. If your style doesn’t match theirs, this is a no go. In a sense, they have created a niche, and do it well. But it is one tiny niche in kitchen design, so potentially wouldn’t work for many people with other ideas of the kind of kitchen they would prefer. In a way, they are a one trick pony. Don’t get me wrong, they do what they do quite well. Even so, this kind of design does not work for everyone, so think long and hard before committing to their aesthetic.
