Subway tile--loosely defined as any tile that is wider than it is tall, usually in a 2:1 ratio--makes for a great kitchen backsplash.

It's a perennial shape that harkens to the past yet never goes out of style.

Cast aside thoughts of gloomy tile found in real subways. Subway tile for the kitchen is clean and fresh, and can be laid in a brickwork pattern, as shown, or stacked. Examples of both patterns will follow.

Here we're looking at a colorful subway tile called Wheatgrass, a collaboration between Clayhaus and modwalls. It's a long 2"x8" and runs about $30 per square foot.


When I first published this article, I said that this was glass subway tile when it is, in fact, ceramic tile. A Clayhaus representative kindly pointed out my error. However, because I like this tile so much, I will keep it in the article for now.
