Just like tile, grout comes in an abundance of colors, and the color you choose can really accent the subway tile backsplash you’ve just installed. Consider these general guidelines when making your decision – A color that matches the tile color creates continuity. Grout color that’s lighter than the tile itself highlights tile but tends to show dirt and grime sooner. A darker color grout will help keep the dirt off the radar and can really accent the lines in your backsplash. Whatever you decide be sure that the grout you pick meets the specifications set by the tile manufacturer. Consult your tile dealer or designer to be sure. //

Herringbone Tile PatternA pattern that creates waves of visual movement, the herringbone pattern is made from a 2:1 tile ratio. Turn the design shown 45-degrees and it becomes a chevron pattern. Offset Tile PatternThe most popular subway pattern — the offset joint layout — offers a timeless look for almost any style. With each joint centered over the tile below, this pattern resembles classic brickwork. Vary the look by installing the tiles vertically. Offset 1/3 Tile PatternA variation of the offset joint, the offset 1/3 pattern creates a stair-step pattern with each joint offset 1/3 from the row of tiles below it. Rotate the pattern to run tiles vertically for the illusion of height. Crosshatch Tile PatternThe crosshatch pattern is a nod to a basket-weave tile pattern, with pairs installed vertically next to pairs installed horizontally. When viewed from afar, the sections resemble a tic-tac-toe board. Straight Set Tile PatternThe simplest of tile patterns, the straight set pattern offers a more contemporary, linear look. Installed vertically or horizontally, the tile lines make your space feel taller or wider.
