Glassy subway tile is nothing new, but it’s coming back stronger in kitchens and bathroom remodels in whites or bolder geometric patterns.
“It’s classic, and a classic always remains,” says Karen Eubank, an interior designer with Eubank Staging & Design in Dallas. Richard Hoey, president and CEO of Active Renter, a property management company that renovates single-family homes, says he’s noticing a change from simple, white subway tile to the use of more eccentric geometric shapes, such as in the kitchen where the rest of the space has a minimalist design.
“The juxtaposition between the overall simplicity of the room and the energy of the tiles really makes them stand out as a centerpiece,” Hoey says.
