As most of you know, I’m in the middle of remodeling our kitchen. Well, more of a giving it a big face lift! The cabinets are almost all done and now it’s time to finish painting the walls and think about a back splash.
I am loving the white subway tile trend that is currently taking kitchen design by storm. I have always wanted it in my kitchen BUT, I have a teeny tiny kitchen and now I’m starting to wonder if a backsplash is even necessary. Up until this point I have been completely sold on doing white subway tile but I’m slowly starting to change my mind…. you’ll have to get to the bottom of the post to see why :)
I love the white subway tile paired with a farmhouse chic kitchen. The tile stops half way up the wall and includes gorgeous floating shelves leaving room for artwork or additional storage.

This kitchen incorporates an entire subway tile wall with rustic shelving and stainless steel accents. The wall creates such a statement space and I adore the shelving, it’s a must for me!
Now let’s talk grout. The darker grout picture above gives a real modern and contemporary look and feel. But is it too dark?

I find myself drawn to the white grout paired with the crisp white kitchen cabinets. This is such a clean look yet comforting at the same time.
This kitchen is what changed everything for me. I absolutely love every detail, including the white planked wall. So yes, you guessed it. Now I’m leaning towards something like this. I’m so indecisive!
So what are your thoughts? I feel like if I go with the subway tile I either need to go big or go home. As in, I need to do an entire wall (thankfully my kitchen wall is really small). Or do I go with half a wall like the first picture? Or do I take a chance and go for the wood planked wall?!
