What are subway tiles? A style of white glazed ceramic tiles used on the walls of New York subway stations in the early 20th century. Nowadays, these timeless tiles can also vary in color and size and are used throughout the home wherever you need them. I want to share some ideas on how you can use them in your kitchen to create a backsplash or even cover the entire wall. Let’s start
As I said above, subway tile is just one common type of tile these days, a rectangular one with usually a glossy surface. It can be any color and size so you can easily find what to match the style of your kitchen. White subway tiles are classics, but if they’re not your thing, check out colored versions like blue, gray, emerald, pink, and others such as marble. The size is also optional: smaller or larger subway tiles will look no worse than the original 3 “× 6”. It is also up to you to highlight the tiles with contrasting mortar or to use suitable grout: contrasting mortars highlight the backsplash and give the kitchen a pattern.
Subway tiles are pretty universal to combine with different materials that you can use: wood, marble, concrete, and others. They easily add color to your monochromatic space or keep the color scheme if you use a matching shade. You are likely envisioning subway tiles laid in the usual horizontal brick pattern. But did you know you can lay subway tile vertically – or even in a herringbone or geometric L-shaped pattern? There are so many possibilities! Give your kitchen a timelessly elegant look with a chic subway tile backsplash and enjoy!
Halloween is only a month away and it's high time to think about organizing a fantastic party. Whichever theme you choose, there are two key things that should be present at the party: decor and food. There is no party without delicious treats and cool drinks, and you should choose and cook with the guests in mind and whether it is a kid's or an adult's party. Today I'm going to inspire you with amazing food ideas for both kids at parties - most of them can be found on Pinterest with recipes, and some of them can be easily made without a recipe.
Halloween adult party food
When planning a stunning adult Halloween party, go for the theme: will it be a bloody theme? Dexter? Vampire, zombies or something else? Choose the food and drinks according to your theme to make the party more stylish. If it's a fancy party, create dark romance displays with vegetables, cheese, salami, and figs. If you're craving some blood, make bloody cookies, bloody brains, cupcakes, and cheesecakes - red-tinted sauce is just the thing for creating such effects. Different parts of the human body are a creepy idea to recreate. You can make creepy finger hot dogs, various displays with skeletons and skulls and put meat and sausage there so that your display is reminiscent of human body parts.
Halloween kids party food
Halloween children's parties should be treated with more attention, as children should be eating healthy, organic food and it shouldn't be scary at the same time. You can make some spider cupcakes, ghost cookies, monster truffles, fiendish eggs, and so on. To make your food healthy without even thinking about it, you can make some cool vegetable trays and displays that are reminiscent of zombies or ghosts and put different types of dip around. Turn fruits into scary or fun fruits by adding chocolate eyes and other details - that way your kids will be delighted to eat them! You can find more ideas in our inspiring gallery!
