5 Daring Tile Ideas Sure to Make a Splash  

1. A Fresh Take On a Classic Trend

Subway tile is so named because the New York City subway was the first to use it. The style originated in 1904, which means that subway tile has been around for more than 100 years. 

If you love the timeless look of subway tile, but you want something other than classic white, Verde Azul Beveled Tile is a great choice. This vibrant green glass subway tile brings sophisticated style to any kitchen. 

This tile fits with a variety of styles including modern, farmhouse, or traditional.
