Subway tiles

30 Aug

Subway tiles have really come along.  I always think of subway tiles as your standard white rectangular tile and I love the look — particularly when matched with dark gray grout.  But as I’ve started paying a bit more attention to tiles these days, I’ve found that there are a lot of new and different subway tiles available.

These small black subway tiles surrounding the fireplace look really elegant and the blue glass subway tiles below are to die for.

I don’t know how easy they are to clean if they’re in an area that gets a lot of grease splatter or water but it’s a really nice look. Not the cheapest option but I also really like the glass mosaic tiles — of course, I prefer the Italian mosaics that have more rustic edges but I used black, gray and white glass mosaic in the kitchen in my office building and they look great — we have cream gloss cabinets, black granite countertop and apple green walls. It sounds like an odd combination but I think it works.
