33 Stunning Herringbone Subway Tile Ideas For Your Home

Herringbone Subway Tile as Backsplash

Herringbone subway tile is a hot trend in home design right now. And for a good reason! Herringbone tile is a great way to transform mundane subway tiles into something unique and stylish. By arranging the tiles in an interlocking V-shape, they capture the eye and breathe life into any room. These tiles are perfect for small accents, such as shower walls, kitchen backsplashes, or bathroom feature walls; wherever to place them, herringbone subway tiles will bring a touch of sophistication.

Choose from glossy ceramic models for a modern atmosphere or old earthy versions for farmhouse charm. And with white grout for a contemporary look or darker grout for that rustic touch, you can easily change the style of your tile.

We recently installed herringbone subway tile in our laundry room and loved the statement it makes in this space. Keep reading to see how herringbone tile can transform spaces in your home.
