Subway tiles hail from the tunnels of New York City but are becoming increasingly popular in Plymouth and surrounding area homes. At Floor Coverings International Maple Grove, we pride ourselves on being able to help homeowners find and create home designs that they love. With our expert knowledge of subway tiles, we suggest checking out these options for your next home upgrade.
Subway Tile and Grout Color Combinations
While the iconic white tile with white grout is a home favorite straight from NYC, playing with color combinations can create some really unique looks. Want to bring warmth and brightness to your kitchen? Try yellow subway tiles fixed with white grout. Going for a more modern look? White tile with black grout looks super chic as a bathroom wall.
Subway Tile Lay Styles
Once you have chosen the subway tiles and grout for your Plymouth home, our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International Maple Grove can help you get creative with different lay styles. Classic brick is exactly what it sounds like—a pattern that mimics the look of laid bricks. For a creative twist, diagonal and vertical brick lay styles take the traditional brick pattern and turn it at 45 or 90-degree angles. These two styles are great options to make smaller kitchens appear larger. Another unique lay style is herringbone. By using the subway tiles to create a “V”, a fun and unique pattern is created. Herringbone looks great as a kitchen backsplash. Lastly, a variant of the herringbone style is geometric. By laying some tiles vertically and some horizontally, you get a dynamic pattern that can become the focal point of any room. All of these lay styles can be tricky, so it is important to get professional installation to ensure your vision comes to life.
Accent Subway Tiles
After selecting your tiles, grout, and lay style, the final design element to consider would be the inclusion of some accent subway tiles. Having a few colored tiles in a sea of white tiles or vice versa can be a great way to tie a room altogether. We see accent subway tiles becoming more and more popular in Maple Grove, Plymouth, Rogers, and surrounding area homes because of the personalized touch homeowners are looking to add to their homes.
