It gives me great pleasure in expressing my sincere appreciation for the rare professionalism displayed by agent, Sylvia Lambert, in negotiating the recent sale of my real estate property. Sylvia was undeterred in her efforts to sell the property. She coordinated each and every aspect with precision. She made sure that every detail was covered.

Glassy subway tile is nothing new, but it’s coming back stronger in kitchens and bathroom remodels in whites or bolder geometric patterns.

“It’s classic, and a classic always remains,” says Karen Eubank, an interior designer with Eubank Staging & Design in Dallas. Richard Hoey, president and CEO of Active Renter, a property management company that renovates single-family homes, says he’s noticing a change from simple, white subway tile to the use of more eccentric geometric shapes, such as in the kitchen where the rest of the space has a minimalist design.

“The juxtaposition between the overall simplicity of the room and the energy of the tiles really makes them stand out as a centerpiece,” Hoey says.
