Shaker-style cabinets and a white subway tile backsplash keep the craftsman influence alive in this updated kitchen design. A large island shows off the black countertop against the white color scheme in the room. Contemporary bar seats bring an updated element to the room for a timeless design.
The former dining room and pantry were combined to create this spacious white kitchen with a white subway tile backsplash and stainless steel appliances. Open shelving shows off colorful pottery and kitchen items, while a reclaimed wood kitchen island with a gray countertop provides ample space for food preparation.
As seen on Good Bones, Karen and Mina wanted to continue the elegant, industrial style into this bathroom, so they carried the reclaimed wood floor into this space. Brown accents keep the space neutral, while continuing to complement the design of the space. In the shower area, designers used subway tile arranged in a chevron pattern to add depth to the space and brighten this neutral space.
This crisp and contemporary master bath features fun details that tie its design to its farmhouse architecture and rural setting. Cornflower blue trim pops against the all-white palette, while a freestanding soaker tub is a modern take on the traditional farmhouse bathtub. A walk-in shower features a frameless glass door and subway tile, and a floating vanity helps keep the space open and uncluttered.
This photo of a Pure Interiors Design bathroom proves that dissimilar styles can form a unifying presence with an expert approach and hands-on treatment. The white subway tile that lines both the shower stall and half of the interior walls of the room makes a appealing connection with the ornamented blue and white toile wallpaper, as if nothing else would have been appropriate but this look.
This modern farmhouse kitchen is the hub of the house, with ample seating in the form of a four-seater island breakfast bar and an eat-in area that's open to the main cooking space. Open shelving keeps the room from feeling boxed in by cabinetry and shows off the textured subway tile backsplash.
Keeping with the ultra-detailed design of the Victorian home, this updated kitchen shows off plenty of interesting features. A gorgeous white subway-tile backsplash and white cabinetry contrast beautifully against the dark concrete countertop. A coffered ceiling gives the room depth, while the red kitchen island brings in a bright splash of color.
Eastern-medicine student Stacy Kon remodeled the inefficient master bathroom of her Los Angeles home into this relaxing retreat every bit as spa-like as the spaces in which she practices one of her passions: acupuncture. A lover of all things blue, Stacy chose a refreshing shade of robin's-egg blue for the walls and ceilings, a good match with the white subway tile. A large rain shower head is mounted above the oversized tub, and a glass shower partition installed on a swivel bracket swings back flush with the back wall when the shower is not in use. When the shower is in use, the glass partition keeps spray from the showerhead contained within the soaking tub. Rather than extending the white tile for use on the floors, vanity and tub surround, Stacy opted for custom, cool gray concrete poured into forms made to size. Dark wood cabinets provide visual contrast to the light blues and grays.
The beautiful details in this space are what pulls it all together. Custom, glass front cabinets have been added as a display case for the homeowners to show off their lovely dishes. An elegant subway tile backsplash has been installed to accentuate the timelessness of the space, and stainless steel appliances have been installed for both their functionality and their looks.
The vanity in the HGTV Urban Oasis 2012 master bathroom from is illuminated by a huge frame of light. A walk-in closet off the bathroom comes in handy when one half of a couple wants to dress before the other one gets up. Glass subway tile used as accent in the shower surround forms the floor-to-ceiling backsplash above the furniture-style vanity.
