This classic bathroom features a traditional horizontal, floor-to-ceiling application of 3" x 6" white subway tile. Light reflects off the bright white, high gloss finish. When applied in straight, tight lines, the generally inexpensive tile looks rich, polished and very high-end.
This gorgeous kitchen uses white walls as a base with light blue-gray subway tiles. The grout lines are thicker, drawing more attention to the tiles.
Marble subway tiles work well in a vertical application, as well. Because these tiles vary a bit in width and length, the verticality gives the illusion of higher ceilings.
You can never go wrong with herringbone, in my book. The pattern on the backsplash behind the stove gives the kitchen a focal point while introducing a texture without overwhelming the space.
