All in white, with the kitchen front painted a very attractive peach orange that combines magnificently with the white of the walls and also that of the kitchen furniture. A small sill has been left so that it is easy to clean, but the rest of the walls are completely painted, without tiles, creating a kitchen with a current aesthetic that goes out of the traditional.

Another kitchen without tiling, painted in a toasted and grayish earth tone. Although in this case, the front of the kitchen itself is tiled with imitation wood ceramics. It is actually the most sensible option, since the coated sill can always be easily cleaned and is much more resistant to heat.

If you like pink for kitchens, then here you can see 17 modern pink kitchens. And some of them also do not have tiles because they have been left without tiling.
Kitchens without tiles can come given. Sometimes furniture and cabinets occupy almost all the space, leaving a small wall surface, in this case, it may not be worth tiling.
There are many other materials to cover the walls of the kitchen without tiles, beyond painting, in case you are not interested in this option. One of them, also widely used, is lacquered glass, available in a wide variety of colors, such as the one shown in this kitchen, from the countertop to the ceiling.
Walls without tiling, painted in a light gray with shades of earth tones, white furniture and with the slab covered with tiles in a tone similar to that of the walls but darker.
It is practically necessary, or at least highly recommended, to cover the kitchen sill with a material that is easy to clean. The paint would break down in a few days and it is very difficult to clean, but impossible, at least, completely.
If you do not like the tile, you have at your disposal stones, such as marble, granite or modern terrazzo, among others, as well as lacquered glass, as we saw before, or mirror, among other options.

This other kitchen also has a nice pink tile on the sill, up to the height of the furniture. The rest, without tiles all in white.

With a modern rustic cut, this other kitchen has a beautiful Andalusian tile halfway to the wall, topped by a blue ceramic valance, and the rest in an earthy tone, according to the general aesthetic of the kitchen, warm and cozy.

Another option is to put a tile very similar to the color of the countertop, to create a sense of continuity, in case you don’t like the cuts.
You raise the tile about 40 centimeters in the wall to protect it from heat and splashes, creating a practical kitchen front and the rest you paint as you wish.
As we can see, even if you decide that un-tiled kitchens are your thing, at least consider the option of covering the front of it, to save you headaches with cleaning; There are a lot of coatings as you have seen in these kitchens without tiles, which make it a more practical space.
