Back-splash. I want put subway tiles on the wall over my back-splash. A sin?

A glossy subway tile would look great and is a very practical choice because of its timelessness.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Kitchen of the Week: Small Kitchen, Big View
The designers opted for a C-shaped kitchen layout (a.k.a. U-shape). This arrangement is a great solution for kitchens tight on space, because they keep the work areas separate from main traffic routes. The kitchen also opens up to the dining and living room in the house, so the style had to be compatible with the more traditional look of these rooms. Sticking with a clean and simple design countered the more ornate Victorian detailing, and natural materials enhanced the exposed wood ceiling. Faucet: Grohe Minta; sink: Franke; flooring: white oak; barstools: Ikea; hood: Zephyr
