One of my favorite new trends for the kitchen is big, bold, attention-getting tile. It's not just about subway tile anymore — there are lots of new players on the scene that can really transform the look of a space. We've rounded up ten kitchens with showstopping tile, and sources where you can buy the same (or similar) tile, to get the look in your own kitchen.
Above: In this kitchen, from Corriere, the black and white Portuguese cement tile is the main event. You can find similar tile in the La Terre Collection from Exquisite Surfaces, or in Made a Mano's Novecento collection.
Emerald tile adds rich color to a moody kitchen from AD Magazine. You can find emerald green glazed terra cotta tiles like these at the Saint Tropez Boutique, or try the Victoria Green or Sterling Moss tiles from Middle Earth Tiles.
These geometric beauties are from Academy Tiles.

And here's one more reminder that bold tiles don't have to be on the backsplash. This kitchen, spotted on Door Sixteen, makes liberal use of subway tile, but the real attention-getter is the encaustic tile floor. You can recreate the look with 'Cubes' by Mosaic House.
