In our humble opinion, white subway tile will always be a classic. If, however, you love this look but want to freshen it up a bit we've got some ideas for you!
1. Change How You Install It
While the majority of subway tile is installed in the traditional offset pattern (shown below), there are tons of other patterns you could use.
Herringbone is one of our favorites. It's a great way to add movement and interest to your backsplash.
Or, try installing your offset pattern vertically and make your space instantly look more modern.
2. Add Decorative Tile
A great way to add interest to a subway tile is to mix it with decorative tile. Whether it's a niche over the oven range or a border in a shower surround, it doesn't take much decorative tile to make a big impact.
3. Try A Crackle Glaze
Being the tile nerds that we are, we've got a soft spot for crackle glazes and think they look really pretty on subway tile.
4. Mix Your Colors & Finishes
Why choose just one finish when you could pick three? Here we used similar color tones, but with three different finishes: a crackle, a satin, and a gloss.
5. Dress It Up With Pearls
Try mixing our Pearl Liner trim with any subway tile as shown below. And the good news is our bestselling Pearl Liner in Glossy White is now in stock! Pearls aren't your thing? You could also use this idea with any pencil liner or small trim. The world's your oyster!
