When it comes to interior design, versatility and endurance are two hallmarks of any great material. As both Caesarstone and subway tile are premium examples of both qualities, why not pair them together? Today I’m looking at kitchens that do just that, and do it in a variety of ways.

To kick things off, we have the classic white subway tile, laid in the standard offset pattern with matching white grout. This is probably the most-utilized way subway tile is incorporated into both kitchens and baths, and it’s easy to see why: it provides a clean surface with a touch of sparkle and visual texture. Paired here with Caesarstone’s Raven counter, this duo makes for a subtle and sophisticated look that works with any style.

At the other end of the spectrum, the above kitchen uses smooth glass subway tile in a blue that’s reminiscent of sky and water. Stacked square and with white grout, this makes a graphic pattern along the backsplash, and pairing this with Caesarstone’s Pure White is a terrific choice. The countertop matches the tile’s grout—as well as the fronts of the upper cabinets—and works to tie everything together as one harmonious whole.

This kitchen uses Pure White Caesarstone to bring a clean surface to this otherwise traditional-looking space. The subway tile—which looks just off-white in this image—is laid with grey grout matching the color of the kitchen woodwork. Another traditional usage of the material, the contrasting grout gives a much more traditional feel.

And, finally, a mix of much of what we’ve seen before—proving just how versatile these two materials are: white tile, grey grout, and Raven Caesarstone all combine once again for a contemporary-meets-traditional look in this kitchen. The addition of a band of square glass tiles helps to break up the pattern, but the stars of this space remain the same: Caesarstone and subway tile, the perfect pair.

In 2005, he bought a house-in-progress and missed several opportunities to have an influence on his own home decor–leaving him wanting more. With design heroes such as Blake Dollahite ( and Robert & Cortney Novogratz (, Dave began seeking out online resources that would exemplify the interior design practices he's most drawn to: using color, texture and simple materials well. Bringing all of this together, along with his specific focus on providing interior design inspiration from a man's point of view, is Dave's mission: masculine design.
