How a subway tile backsplash with a glazed finish and subtle pearlescent sheen can punch up the charm in just about any kitchen decor.

Mallorca White Ceramic Subway tiles from TileClub!

If like me, you’re craving for a touch of drama or a need to add some pizazz in your kitchen design, these Mallorca White Ceramic Subway tiles from Tile Club will definitely deliver! I absolutely LOVE how my new Kitchen backsplash has changed the whole look of my otherwise traditional and farmhouse-lite maple kitchen!

Part of the goal when updating our kitchen was to create a comfortable, at-home feeling, farmhouse-inspired kitchen — on a budget. A subway tile backsplash seemed the perfect idea and since I wanted to keep our wooden maple cabinets, a white or off-white color was a must to brighten up the space.

However, I didn’t realize there were SO many options! I’m talking an endless variety of kitchen backsplashes. It had been eight long years since our last kitchen refresh, who knew beautifully made, non-tacky looking, pearlized subway tiles were a possibility? And how would they look in my kitchen? And would they be within my budget?

My tile backsplash choice?

Enter these UH-mazing white 2.5 x 8 luminous glazed finish subway tiles from Tile Club! Among all the kitchen features in our kitchen, I wanted our backsplash to be fun and also be the showstopper, all the while retaining that classy modern traditional taste.

My new Mallorca White Ceramic Subway Tile delivered again and again! I especially love the natural finish of handcrafted appearance so that each tile is not perfectly cut. Feels very artisan-like and quite frankly, looks more expensive. Also, the sheen is subtle, playing on slight surface variations from tile to tile.

To keep the focus on the tile, we butted the tiles directly against one another (for the thinest grout line possible), in a simple subway pattern and chose with a non-sanded grout in Snow White. I later sealed the tile and grout (two days later) with the 511 Impregnator Sealer.

Is a white backsplash a good idea?

I did have some concern about dirt or possibly staining these white tiles but once I sealed them, that concern quickly dissipated. A regular cleaning routine with Dawn liquid soap and a quick wipe with a sponge make for easy maintenance.

I’m am extremely pleased with the final look and how something seemingly as simple as a tile backsplash can make such a stunning and effortless difference in a kitchen!
