As part of my mom's mini kitchen reno last week, she ripped out her old back splash and installed these subway tiles from Home Depot (By herself! She's amazing!).

We decided that a darker grout would both hold up better against staining and would also be a nice way to help the white of the cabinets work with the black of the counter tops.

I also love that it's a tiny bit graphic and a little edgier than plain white grout.

Here are some of my favorite kitchens and baths featuring subway tile with dark grout:
