Look, there's nothing wrong with subway tile. But as a lover of pattern and color and texture, I couldn't be more excited that bolder, more daring tiles are starting to make their way into the kitchen. One of my favorite looks, especially for a modern kitchen, is concrete tile. Its slightly worn texture gives it a old-world, been-there-forever look, while its bold colors and patterns elevate a kitchen far beyond the ordinary.
