When I think about subway tile the word “classic” instantly comes to mind. Specifically, white subway tile. I know, we’ve definitely been seeing a lot of it in both kitchens and bathrooms in recent years but, honestly, I think there’s good reason for that. The look is clean and minimal, it works well with practically any style, and, c’mon….it’s cheap! That word is music to anyone’s ears when they’re in the midst of a home renovation, am I right??

But aside from those reasons, subway tile is so completely versatile. By simply changing up the pattern or grout color, you can come up with a number of different looks…all of which are good! I tell ya, it’s a true style chameleon. Care to see what I mean? Take a look below…

Yes to this bathroom! Using a gray grout with a straight herringbone pattern really puts an unexpected twist on this tiled backsplash. The tiny hex floor tiles are an excellent match.

Ok, this tile pattern is sleek. Referred to as “stack bond”, it really doesn’t get cleaner or more modern than this. White grout is the perfect choice for keeping everything super fresh feeling.

When things get boring it’s time to turn everything on its head. This linear vertical pattern isn’t one that I see too often, but when it’s done right it is SO very good.

Can you ever go wrong with dark grout and a traditional offset pattern? Not in my book. If there’s one way to make subway tile “pop”, this is it.

It really is true that the pattern changes everything when it comes to subway tile. This diagonal herringbone variation is so soft and pretty, don’t you think? I have a few bathroom renovations coming up in the near future and this is a strong contender. Tons of fun possibilities to think about!

  1. Our backsplash subway tile has a very slight bevel to it which makes it a bit softer and just unique! Just installed marble looking Quartz counter tops to finish off the look!
