Subway Tile Backsplash in the Bathroom

A subway tile backsplash in your bathroom will look just as awesome as the kitchen. It's amazing what a quick remodel of the bathroom backsplash in subway tile can do to bring your bathroom back to life. Subway tile is not only perfect for the backsplash behind the sink, but take it a step further and use it for the shower or tub surround as well.

Pick a Color

With so many colors to choose from, Daltile offers a selection of subway tile sure to meet your tastes, and different enough to add a unique touch to the backsplashes in your kitchen and bathroom. "Sunflower," "Waterfall," "Cobalt" and "Galaxy," are just a few of the colors available in the Rittenhouse Square series which has quite a selection of subway tile. Or, you may choose to stick with the tried and true white subway tile. It’s still one of the most popular and requested products in the Daltile catalog. If you're not sure what color to go with, consult a design professional for the latest and greatest ideas.

Don’t Forget the Grout

Grout is so much more than just a finishing touch. While many may look at the grouting process as that final step between them and a finished project, it can be so much more than that. Just like tile, grout comes in an abundance of colors, and the color you choose can really accent the subway tile backsplash you've just installed. Consider these general guidelines when making your decision - A color that matches the tile color creates continuity. Grout color that's lighter than the tile itself highlights tile but tends to show dirt and grime sooner. A darker color grout will help keep the dirt off the radar and can really accent the lines in your backsplash. Whatever you decide be sure that the grout you pick meets the specifications set by the tile manufacturer. Consult your tile dealer or designer to be sure.
