Although they may give out a traditional vibe, kitchen subway tiles never get old. They a timeless and classical detail that can be adapted to suit any kitchen and style. There’s more than one way in which you can use subway tiles on your kitchen backsplash and also more than one type. One way of categorizing them would be like this:
White subway tiles are definitely the most common and popular. They’re perfect if you want to give your kitchen an airy and bright look and to allow it to always feel clean and fresh. But how you use these white tiles in combination with the rest of the design and décor details is up to you. Here are a few suggestions.
Complement white subway tiles with white furniture for a minimalist and classy look. Use white on the ceiling as well for cohesiveness. Of course, you can and you should also add a few contrasting details as well to break the monotony.
Sure, an all-white kitchen looks nice and all, but not everybody loves the look. Sometimes you feel the need to add some color to the décor, to create strong contrasts. You can do that with colored appliances, accessories or furniture.

Use wooden shelves to complement your white subway tiled backsplash and to give the kitchen a subtle rustic vibe. Reclaimed wood shelves also bring out the texture and the organic beauty of the material.
Dark And Elegant.
Black or dark-colored tiles in general are less popular because of their dramatic look. They are excellent if you’re trying to create strong contrasts in your kitchen’s décor, to create a focal point or to balance out the overall design.
By Shape – Square Tiles.
Although the rectangular ones first come in mind when talking about subway tiles, square tiles are also a valid option. They can also be installed in a variety of patterns and used to create interesting displays for the kitchen backsplash and walls.
