I love the look of subway tiles in kitchens and bathrooms. If you decide to use subway tiles it will evoke a clean and fresh feel in your home. If you’re looking to re-surface a bathroom or kitchen subway tiles for back-splashes now come in every possible color to complement any decor. I personally prefer white subway tiles because it’s a traditional look and if you want to paint the bathroom or kitchen a different color it will be easier to do so. A classic tile pattern is displaying them vertically and for a more modern look try a horizontal layout. Which ever way you decide to display them, will give your home more of a historic flair.

I have also noticed dark grout being used for back splashes. The great thing about darker grout is it’s a lot easier to keep clean.

White grout, is a different look entirely.I also like the look of white grout, as it has a softer feel to it. This is a charming farmhouse style kitchen, the white tile works well in this kitchen. Again, the only thing about white grout is it’s harder to clean.
