Subway Tile Backsplashes

Choose subway tiles for your kitchen backsplash as a way to lend a classic vibe to your space.

A subway tile backsplash can add a classic look to your kitchen space.

Classic subway tiles are rectangular in the traditional style of bricks while maintaining a modern edge. The popular subway tile design is done using white tiles with black grouting, but there is a range of options available for kitchen backsplashes.

A more modern take on subway tiles is an elongated design where the tiles are three times as long as they are high. These tiles work especially well in a modern kitchen, whether they are in white or a bold color, like yellow.

If a classic installation of subway tiles is not for you, then you may want to consider designing a fun pattern that will emphasize the unique nature of your kitchen. Some backsplashes are designed to look like herringbone or parquet patterns.

One example of a kitchen style that would pair well with a subway tile backsplash made from white tiles and black grouting is a classic kitchen. White cabinetry paired with a gray and white granite countertop would look beautiful with this backsplash design.

Subway tile backsplashes can also be made interesting by changing up the color of grout. Black, tan and gray are popular alternatives to traditional white.
