Basing your bathroom design with a classic tile like subway can lead to great things. The opportunities are within the laying possibilities. Different ways to lay the tile can include a herringbone, diagonal, straight, or basketweave design. We also love stackbond, cross hatch and a classic offset pattern.
Modernize the Living Room

One of the number one spots that subway tile is being included in is small sections throughout the living room, most popularly the fireplace. It may seem like subway tile could only work in more modern spaces like the bathroom or kitchen, but we can’t wait to see how it’s used in spaces like the bedroom, office, or living room. It has the ability to give any cozy space the perfect dose of modernism!

Whether it’s used for backsplash or throughout the entire kitchen, this tile can fill a large or small space and has such a perfect presence. While you’re likely to see it placed in an offset layout, we love a herringbone pattern for an eclectic take on the classic look.
To Add a Dash of Color

If you have any areas of your home that are just “missing something” subway tile almost always saves the day. It’s common to see white or black subway tile as it’s a timeless style that speaks for itself, but if you’re looking to add a little more vibrancy to a room, choosing a subway tile of color is always the perfect way to go, especially in a bathroom or kitchen.
