Using subway tiles for kitchen splashbacks

Herringbone tiling

The kitchen tiling is an important visual design consideration, as well as being an important practical choice too. And wall tiling can be the perfect finish for your new kitchen, in any style or design, including contemporary and traditional kitchens. Part of this is the splashback tiling, which is positioned on the wall behind the sink, sometimes up to the cabinets above. This is a great place to make a real statement with your tiling, and add some character and personality to your kitchen. Subway tiles are a popular choice for this, but what are the considerations for using subway tiles for kitchen splashbacks, and what are the benefits?

What are the important considerations when using subway tiles for kitchen splashbacks?

To make the most out of your splashback space, with stunning subway tiling, you should consider:

  • The layout of the tiles- from vertical subway tiling, to basket weave or herringbone patterns, the way you install your tiles and the layout you choose, can be very effective. Choose a style that suits your kitchen design.
  • The colour of the tiles- the splashback area is a great place to create a feature wall, and this can be achieved by using tiles of different colours. You could choose a colour that creates contrast with the rest of the space, or you could opt for a stylish accent colour instead. Alternatively, if you want your splashback area to blend in, use the same colour tiles as the rest of the kitchen instead.
  • The grouting- choosing a contrasting grout colour can help to emphasise the shape of the tiles and the layout by creating visual contrast.
