Slate Subway Mosaic Tile Backsplash

While trends can come and go, there is one material that will never go out of style: subway tiles. Subway tiles are the staple of kitchen backsplashes, exuding a timeless elegance. With their simple rectangular shape, these tiles can easily create a subtle backdrop for a variety of kitchen designs. When the classic appeal of the subway pattern meets the rustic and earthy flair of slate stone, the result is just beautiful. A slate subway mosaic tile backsplash is a great way to add rustic elegance to kitchen designs. The natural cleft surface of these tiles can add a textile dimension to the backsplash area and create visual interest. In case you would like to go a step further and give your kitchen a more detailed look, you can go for subway tiles but in a different pattern such as herringbone, basketweave, or chevron, all of which will serve as a beautiful background.

While the tile materials and colors have an important role in the overall look, the grout color is another element that influences the design. If you want to create a cohesive backdrop, you can opt for a complementary grout color for your slate subway tiles. Contrasting grout colors, on the other hand, will emphasize the subway pattern of your tiles and create a more distinctive appeal. Besides their visual impact, slate subway mosaic tiles also provide durable wall surfaces. Slate is a strong and long-lasting material which makes it a great choice for high-traffic areas like kitchen backsplashes.
