How Christina Hall Really Feels About Using Subway Tile
Subway tiles are a common design feature used to add a classic feel to a space, but HGTV star Christina Hall landed in the middle when asked about them.
The traditional subway tile look puts white rectangular tiles at a 50% offset from each other, but Hall prefers to use them in less traditional ways during her renovations.
There's plenty of flexibility in the layout and appearance of subway tiles. Some options are to use a one-third or one-fourth offset, a vertical layout, or a herringbone pattern.
For the size, it depends on the purpose and location. Smaller tiles are best for things like the kitchen backsplash while large format tiles make a room feel more spacious.
