I’ve got a new interior design obsession: mini matte black subway tile. Unfortunately, I’m not finding many examples of its use when I scan my resources so there’s not really enough out there to devote a whole post to it yet–calling all designers to start using it more! Until then, I’ve got some images of other kinds of black subway tile to help fill out this post. They’re all good, I just have a thing for the small matte version…
Glam It Up
Before we get to my obsession, there does happen to be this. Wanting major glamour and impact in your space? Try glazed black subway tile; it’s like being inside a dark diamond.
Maybe that should be “Go Industrial Chic” — this Budapest steakhouse uses black subway tile, butcher block, and stainless steel to get the look.
Dial It Back
Not sure you’re ready for full on butcher shop drama? Tell the same story a bit more subtly by using matte black subway tile and stainless steel counters like in this handsome kitchen.
Make Mine Mini
We’ve seen matte black, now let’s look at a more miniature solution. This use of the tile–running it almost all the way up the walls–is sooooo nice.
Black It Out
This is the look that I’m crushing on hard these days: matte black mini subway tile with black grout–it’s impossibly sexy.
