As we all know, sometimes the simplest things can be the most beautiful.

One of our favorite, simple statement-makers? Subway tile, of course!

When we’re working on a renovation, so many things are pulling on our heartstrings–and our purse strings! When it comes to the kitchen, in particular, it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed–or more than a little over budget!

Fortunately, subway tile is a way to keep both in check. Not only is it a stunning no-brainer for any space, but subway tile is also an affordable alternative to marble or other natural stones that might be fighting to be our backsplash choice. (Although we love them too!)

One of our most favorite subway tile tricks that makes it look not only unique but also much more expensive, it playing with the grout color. We’re huge fans of gray grout, especially in a kitchen like this where it highlights the color of the cabinets. Plus, it doesn’t get dirty! But white grout lends a gorgeous clean look. With subway tile, you really can’t go wrong!

Another perk to subway tile? It’s so easy to clean! Just spray and wipe with any old cleanser.
