Let's Talk About Subway Tile
I would like to put subway tile in my new kitchen in my old (1922) house. The original kitchen was most like unfitted, and, while I considered going that way, I have ultimately decided to go with period-appropriate styles and materials, but built-in cabinets and counters. (The kitchen is not original now, anyway, it's got old cabinets and formica counters and a vinyl floor.)
Subway Ceramics has gorgeous tile, and you can get a crazed finish as well as plain. I'm guessing that plain is more authentic; but I like the look of the crazed, too.
I'm not into obessesive restoration for this project, just responsible renovation, but some of y'all know a lot more about architectural history than I do. I realize that in the end I should probably go with what pleases me, since I have to live here, but I think I could go either way.
Can anyone offer me pros and cons from the old house perspective? What do you think?
