Classic with a Splash of Color

Love subway/brick tiles, but want to change it up a bit? Try sticking with the classic shape, but update the look with some color. White is always a safe way to go since it leaves one wiggle room for your color scheme. However, if you want to punch it up a bit there are some great neutral colored subway/brick tiles. If a person really want to make a statement there are also plenty of fun bright colors that will be the talk of the town.

The subway tiles in both of these pictures both nice neutral colors and by matching (pretty close) the cabinet color it creates a nice tranquil kitchen. There isn't too much going on...

Here are some more very neutral greige (blend of gray and beige) tiles. They look great with white, dark and even colored cabinets...

To get a more beachy feel into the kitchen try blue...

Green can be subtle or it can loud...
