What Houzz contributors are saying:
Go in at an angleFancy a twist on the classic metro tile? One solution is to lay out simple white ones in a herringbone design, as here. The pattern is particularly effective combined with the contemporary, slab-fronted kitchen, as it helps to add character and texture.What’s really interesting about this layout is that, although the tiles are the same as in the previous image, the effect is reversed – the patterned splashback is the standout feature and the dark blue units form a frame around them.
Hone Your HerringboneGo up the wallFor an instant update on classic metro tiles, consider laying them in a herringbone pattern. This contemporary kitchen is full of sleek surfaces and neat lines that move vertically and horizontally. It’s the ideal streamlined backdrop to a wall of pattern, created by laying white rectangular tiles in diagonal columns. The idea is simple, yet the effect is quite stunning.
