Want to give the kitchen in your new home in Frisco a sophisticated look? Add subway tile to the backsplash. These white 3-by-6-inch tiles have long been a staple of kitchen and bathroom design. Homeowners typically love this classic tile because it’s affordable, uncontroversial and, even better, usually in stock.
It’s been a common practice to pair white subway tile with white grout. But a style that’s been getting more popular over the years is to pair white subway tile with gray grout in a running-brick pattern. Some designers have also stacked the tiles for a linear, modern look, while others have tried a herringbone sign. No matter which way you stack them, the contrast between the gray grout and white tile adds depth and interest to a space. The tiles really “pop” when you set them wide apart, creating a bold look for your kitchen.
Homeowners may find that gray grout is a wise choice to use for the kitchen backsplash, since it’s easy to maintain. White grout tends to yellow and stain with age, so over time, the marks won’t be as visible when a gray grout is used. It’s up to you whether you choose a light gray or dark gray grout. But if your kitchen already has dark-hued accents, the dark gray grout should compliment it well.
If you’d like to see what gray grout looks like in person, visit the Stonelake model at Austin Ridge at Lonestar Ranch.
