4 Subway Tile Backsplashes for Your Vero Beach Kitchen

Subway tile earned its name when New York subway platform walls were clad in white 3×6-inch rectangular ceramic tiles back in 1904. Over the years the tile, which is often laid in a brick pattern, has become the “little black dress” of kitchen backsplashes, and is popular now more than ever.

Timeless White

Homeowners who want a timeless, neutral-colored kitchen may opt for a ceramic subway tile backsplash in plain white, the color that introduced the design. A glossy white surface is ideal for keeping things light and bright, while thin black grout lines can make the tiles pop and hide dirt.

Beveled

Here’s a modern twist to this classic design. Beveled subway tile is popular for its three-dimensionality, which is created by the tile’s raised perimeter that projects forward. The look is accentuated by the juxtaposition of light and shadow.

Glass

Here’s another update to this enduring look. Glass tile has a translucent appearance and is available in a wide variety of colors. Its glass composition can give any surface a brilliant shine.

If you want to go really bold with a glass backsplash, consider black glass subway tile. Grey or white grout will create a high contrast that can further accentuate the tile. Balanced with other black, white, and gray surfaces and finishes in your kitchen, you can enjoy a clean, ultra-modern look. Be mindful of the commitment to this bold and specific look, though, if you plan to resale your home in the near future.

Marble

Classic meets classic. When marble, a timeless stone, is paired with the classic style of subway tile, you’ve got a chic look that can last for the lifetime of your home. Depending on the kind of marble you use, its unique veining, coloring, and shades can create a look that won’t look quite like any other. You can choose marble with a polished, honed, tumbled, or leather finish, which can increase your options for a variety of kitchen designs.
