Many years ago, while wedding dress shopping with my mom, I said "I want a simple, classic dress that will never go out of style." My mom's response was "Just how many times to you plan on wearing this dress?". Of course, only once, but when I look back at our wedding pictures, it's hard to determine what year or even what decade we were married.
When shopping for tile during our renovation, I knew I wanted something simple and something that looked like it could have been original to the house. Subway tile, of course. Every picture I collected for inspiration for our kitchen and bathroom incorporated subway tile in some fashion. We used it for our kitchen backsplash, our fireplace surround and our master bathroom shower. I personally don't think you can go wrong with subway tile. I can't imagine I will ever tire of it.
Here are a few pictures of how it is used in our home.
The kitchen backsplash is made up of 2"x8" cream subway tile (with a slight crackle finish). For some visual interest, we had a herringbone pattern added behind the stovetop.
The fireplace surround is done in 2"x4" carrera marble subway tile. It is also on the hearth.
The master bathroom shower is done in a 2"x8" carrera marble subway tile. Again, for some visual interest, we added the horizontal black accent tile all the way around the shower.
