Subway Tiles: Refresh Your Kitchen and Bathroom Spaces Without Breaking the Bank

Interior plants

A critical part of my job as a New York interior designer is to offer clients an affordable price point leading to a beautiful finished product. While some clients may want to, and be able to have a larger budget to forgo this step in the design process, personally, I like to keep my client’s needs and budgets at the forefront. However, whether your budget is large or tight, any good designer will look for the best product and price to make their clients’ interior design dreams come true. 

One way to maximize your finances while maintaining a high level of design is in the bathroom and kitchen. Refreshing your space with ceramic tiles can make a large impact and not necessarily burn up the budget. Using classics like Subway tiles can save money, add value to the space and look dynamite. As a New York interior designer, the value of subway tiles is very important to those who want an affordable option for tiling due to the various designs I am able to witness traveling through our tile-filled subway stations.

As mentioned, there are variations in size and finish for Subway tiles these days and many diverse patterns for layout. Layout patterns vary from herringbone and offset to running bond and crosshatch with others in between. The only concern with such patterns is that some patterns use more tiles than others so finding the right balance between pattern and affordability will allow you to save the wallet and also fulfill your desired interior look.

Subway tiles can be sourced in many places and are very affordable. It is a style that dates back over 100 years and is still being used today, offering a fresh new look to an old bathroom or kitchen with an affordable price attached. If you’re interested in adding Subway Tiles to your bathroom or kitchen, I can certainly help with everything from selecting the right products to supervising the installation process.
