Ah, subway tile. If you've ever waited in the fetid heat or bone-chilling cold of a New York subway station, all for the pleasure of standing on a packed train, you have probably had ample time to view subway tile.

But subway tile, removed from the subway itself, can be a nice thing. Your basic subway tile is 3" x 6" or 2" x 6" and is white, though variations abound. With white grout, subway tile is a clean and crisp kitchen backsplash idea that complements modern or traditional home styles.

Grouted in gray or black, subway tile no longer recedes into the background: it pops forward and announces itself (though many homeowners may feel that black grout is too grid-like).
