Who wouldn't love these modern and trendy pieces? Subway tiles are relatively cheap and easy to clean—making it ideal for frequently used areas like the kitchen and bathroom.

Lucky for us, Scott Sidler of Craftsman Blog shared tips on how he successfully installed subway tiles in an old house. There's even a video too! Remember, it's still best to work with a design professional when installing tiles and working on home improvement projects to avoid mistakes and extra costs!
