Chevron is out and herringbone is in. For those afraid of committing to the eclectic herringbone pattern, fear not! While herringbone is currently very popular, this pattern actually dates back to the Roman Empire and is common in tweed patterns. So it’s safe to say this enduring pattern will never be out of style.

Moroccan fish scale tile, or scalloped tile, is unique and offers an ocean side vibe. We love this bold scalloped tile and how it brightens up the classic design in this traditional kitchen. If you want to channel a little back-to-the beach in your renovation, look no further than scalloped tile.

Counter to Ceiling Backsplash
This is perhaps one of our favorite kitchen backsplash trends, the counter to ceiling backsplash. Traditionally, backsplash tile ends where the upper cabinets begin. However, in a move of pure design genius, homeowners are starting to take their backsplash tile all the way to the top. Functionally speaking, standard backsplashes only go up 4 to 9 inches, but what a difference it makes design wise when it’s taken higher!

This moody backsplash trend is a fun switch from the traditional white grout on white tile. Dark grout offers stunning contrast and adds definition, completely changing the look of a white subway tile backsplash. Not to mention, dark grout is the easiest to keep clean!
