Effective subway tiling options for the kitchen


Subway tiles, or metro tiles, are a popular choice of tile for kitchens and bathrooms across the UK. These are rectangular in format, and of a similar size to the face of a brick. But how can these tiles be used effectively in the kitchen? And what kind of tiling layouts or tips can help make subway tiles fit into your kitchen style?

What are the most effective subway tiling options for the kitchen?

So, how can subway tiles be used to transform your kitchen? Well, you could consider:

  • Creating a kitchen splashback- using subway tiles to create a kitchen splashback can be a good option for traditional as well as contemporary properties. From a simple brick bond layout, to a vertical straight lay, subway tiles can be used effectively to add character and personality to your space, or to create a blank canvas. Why not opt for alternating colours to attract more attention, or even using a contrasting grout colour to really highlight the shape and pattern of the tiles?
  • Kitchen wall tiling- if you plan to tile your kitchen walls, subway tiles can be a good idea. Choose a light colour, like white, or a pale pastel colour, and use matching grout, and this will allow you to create a subtle but stylish tiling effect across your kitchen walls.
  • Kitchen feature wall tiling- just as subway tiles can create a stylish and attractive splashback, they can also be effective for feature wall tiling too. Why not use a herringbone layout, or a basket weave for a feature wall that is subtle and stylish, or choose colourful tiles for a feature wall that really stands out?
