As a kitchen designer we are always coming across trendy tile. Most clients are hesitant to use trendy tile in fear that it won't be in style 10 years from now. We help clients find a happy medium between timeless and unique. Subway tile has been our go-to for many years because of its price as well as its timeless style. Subway tile can be a great neutral background especially when you want to do something with a little more pop on your counter-tops or cabinetry color like this kitchen we designed a few years ago.
Tile doesn't always have to play second fiddle when it comes to design. Tile has become such a statement piece in kitchen and bathroom design in the past few years and can be the focal point when clients choose to go a little more subtle with their cabinetry and counter-tops much like these images below. All without becoming to trendy and the worry of it being out of style in 10-15 years.
We are currently working on two kitchen designs and trying to nudge our clients in a safe but more unique route when it comes to their back-splash choices. Let us know what you think.
