Look, there's nothing wrong with subway tile. But as a lover of pattern and color and texture, I couldn't be more excited that bolder, more daring tiles are starting to make their way into the kitchen. One of my favorite looks, especially for a modern kitchen, is concrete tile. Its slightly worn texture gives it a old-world, been-there-forever look, while its bold colors and patterns elevate a kitchen far beyond the ordinary.

The soft green backsplash tile in this kitchen from Planete Deco is beautiful to look at — but its texture also practically begs you to run your hands over it.

I love pretty much everything about this Barcelona kitchen from Houzz (because how could you not? Look at that room divider!), but I think my favorite thing is the bold concrete floor in the 'tumbling block' pattern.

In this kitchen from De Dujes, concrete tile in an unusual spot — on the side of an island — adds an unexpected but welcome touch of color and pattern.

Waiting for water to boil is a little more enchanting when you're staring at this geometric tile backsplash, seen in a kitchen from House & Home.

This kitchen from Rock My Style also features an island covered in concrete tile. The concrete countertops complement the tile and give the kitchen a bit of industrial edge.

Encaustic tile can present a very rustic, old-world look, but it can also be very crisp and modern, like this black and white concrete tile, which is the perfect addition to a minimal Australian kitchen spotted on The Style Files.

This kitchen spotted on Leva & Bo uses concrete tile in some very innovative ways, in the back of a tiny niche behind the counter and also as the surface on a bit of countertop. I know y'all haven't always been the biggest fans of tile countertops — but you have to admit this is very, very pretty.
