TRENDING @ HOME: The Herringbone Pattern Backsplash — Here’s Why:

I’m working on a few kitchen remodels where the clients like subway tile. But

Aren’t we all getting a little used to it — you know — kind of like an old hat?

You can do subway tile expensively, with costly tile; or you can do it on the cheap. (It’s great for that.) I think it has become the go-to look of this decade.

 

Many people are doing subway tile backsplashes a bit differently these days:

They’re using a herringbone pattern.

Some of my clients are a little gun-shy about laying the subway tile in a style other than a brick or running bond manner. They are wondering if it’s classic enough or timeless enough. Or whether it will be the next pattern to feel “of a certain era”.

Personally, I think herringbone patterns are timeless. And with smaller, or longer, handmade glossy tile, they can look even more unique and special.

Herringbone patterns work well in a kitchen, where we want some kind of interest and, perhaps, a little more textural look on the backsplash without it overwhelming the kitchen with chaotic pattern. Also, it adds height to a space, as a result of the direction it’s run.

 

The herringbone pattern has its roots in traditional, even old world homes. It’s been around forever and we love it.

Now check out the gallery below to appreciate its timeless charm. 😉
