Last week I brought to you the wonderful world of Subway Tile In The Bathroom. Subway tile in the bathroom is my heaven part one and subway tile in the kitchen is my heaven part deux. I always thought I was a modern kitchen lover but the more kitchens I see featuring subway tile, the more I'm realizing that I might be a traditionalist with a twist.
Now when I think of a traditional yet updated kitchen I immediately think of subway tile running up the walls and even floor to ceiling in many cases. The most popular subway tile featured in an updated traditional kitchen is white but that doesn't mean white is the end all be all. Jade is a color I see popping up on a regular basis because it works so well with white and really softens a bright kitchen.
The shape of the subway tile really sets the tone for the kitchen. Typically the elongated shape can be found in other aspects; the countertops, replacing traditional cabinetry with single shelves and even slim and long drawer pulls. There are so many different ways to appreciate and pay homage to this staple tile. Here are some inspirational kitchens that put subway tile to great use:
• Long and Lean, Dwellings
• Floor To Ceiling Tile, Elle Decor
• Traditional Kitchen, Emme Skoien
• Jade Tile, Better Homes and Gardens
• , The Polished Pebble
