Are subway tiles out of style 2022?
Out with traditional subway tile, in with earthy colors – here are the hottest home design trends of 2022. We’re departing from traditional subway tile, sconce lighting will be hot and earthy tones are in.
Choose a backsplash color that complements the countertop – it might create contrast or it might be in the same color story. The basic rule is that you shouldn’t have a “busy” countertop with a “busy” backsplash. If you want one of these features to be a focal point, you should choose one or the other.
Choose a subway size appropriate for the project by looking at how much area will be covered with the tile. Â For small tile areas, smaller to medium sized tiles are best, where larger tiles will beautifully compliment larger, more open areas. If you’re looking for a white subway tile, not all whites are white.
White subway tile, like nearly any subway tile, is particularly easy to keep clean with much less maintenance and elbow grease than you might expect. With ceramic tile being stain resistant, paired with the fact that glaze is non-absorbent, you have a one-two combo for keeping things sparkling clean – and white.
Skinny backsplashes are out of style, we are happy to report. A ceramic tile or glass backsplash that stretches from counter to cabinets is much easier to keep clean, and is more likely to catch spills and splatters.
Peel-and-stick tiles provide a cheap backsplash idea that’s easier to install than traditional tile. The self-adhesive backing can be applied directly to the wall with no grout needed. The wide range of patterns lets you recreate the look of a bold tile backsplash without the high cost.
There are many timeless options for a kitchen backsplash such as hexagon tiles, picket tile, penny tile, and square format tile (just to name a few). Timeless Backsplash Tip: Opt for a natural stone like marble or slate for a more traditional and timeless look. For example, marble or slate mosaic tile!
As mentioned above, blues are going to continue to be on-trend in 2021 but green is an overlooked colour that works great against white. Polished Marble like the Layla Verde with their geometric patterns are sophisticated and are guaranteed to look impressive across any kitchen wall or floor.
Dreamy dark kitchens will beckon you in better than you expect! We know classic white ceramic subway tile will never go out of style, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look for ways to jazz it up! One of the current trends to give this timeless tile a fresh new look is adding contrasting grout!
