Most Popular Kitchen Design Trends | White Subway Tile Backsplashes

3x6 Glazed White Subway Tiles 

A classic 3 x 6 glazed white subway tile, along with white cabinetry, has withstood the test of time.

White subway tile backsplashes are popular due to an ability to transcend style from cottage charm to traditional elegance to modern simplicity.

The NC custom home pictured to the right (The Carwile) is an "All American" country-craftsman style home. The white subway tile backsplash brightens up the kitchen, and complements the farmhouse style sink for a sleek yet simple appeal.

Brick Patterns Visually Expand Space

Any time a brick pattern is used in a back splash area it visually expands the space - perfect for smaller alley kitchens or large kitchens open to the great or living room.

The NC custom home pictured to the left is a kitchen in a one-story floor plan, the Bethesda. This kitchen is an alley style, with an arched opening to the dining and great room.

The light oak cabinetry helps keep the efficiently laid-out room open, bright, and welcoming.

As an added bonus, the 3x6 white subway tile is readily available and inexpensively priced.

White Subway Tile Coordinates with Multiple Countertop Styles 

The NC custom home pictured to the right also features white cabinetry paired with white subway tile, for a trendy yet tasteful combination.  

There is a custom inlay above the gas range, to draw out the dark tones of the granite countertops and black details in the stainless steel appliances.

Yes, white subway tile is incredibly popular - probably the most requested item for backsplashes.  I love them because they are timeless and work w/ som many designs.  I'm going to reblog.

Oh shoot, it looks like I can't reblog.  I was hoping to help spread the word for you.  Oh well.
