Are you bored of seeing subway tiles in almost every kitchen? If yes, Lainey Wilson, CMA Entertainer of the Year, may have an alternative for you. The country singer took to Instagram to share a video of her adorable dog, revealing her kitchen design in the process.
Lainey’s kitchen has white cabinets, white countertops, and a stainless steel refrigerator with gold handles. A modern black light fixture above the kitchen sink window provides sufficient brightness. However, the star of the show is the white chevron backsplash that runs along the kitchen walls. White tiles combined with gray grout create a stunning look and texture in a neutral kitchen decor.
Interior designers love Lainey’s kitchen wall design. “White chevron tiles as a backsplash add texture, dimension and visual interest, especially in an all-white kitchen,” says Alice Chiu, a designer at San Francisco-based Miss Alice Designs.

Adds Vivianne Chow, interior designer and owner at Viv and Tim Home: “Installing a white tile backsplash creates visual interest with its unique pattern. It’s a great way to change up the look instead of regular subway tile. Choosing a kitchen color like white creates a clean feel Simple and easily complements other design elements in the kitchen.’

Experts say that Lainey kitchen tile grout was appropriately selected. “Because grout is darker than white or even taupe and black, it adds contrast, allowing the chevron pattern to stand out and become a natural feature and focal point of the space,” says Alice.
What’s more, Alice adds that this kitchen wall tile design can work in any space. ‘Chevron patterns are most popular in modern and contemporary spaces but can be incorporated into more traditional patterns,’ she says. ‘If the tiles are not flat but have some movement, they can create a fun and exciting look, adding visual interest and depth to any space.’
