Ideas On Using The Famous Subway Tile
In New York City in 1904, the Subway tile was first introduced when a white-walled underground Subway Station had opened. Since then, it is extremely common to find these tiles used in homes all over the world and even today, these tiles continue to offer clean lines, tight grout joints and are an inherently simple design style.
Ways To Use Subway Tiles
A subway tile can be used in a variety of different ways and come in a variety of different colours to be used in your bathroom, laundry, kitchen or even as a glass tiles in your pool.
It’s hard to beat the simplicity and timeless look of the white subway tile. When teamed with white grout, the seamless effect acts as a perfect white backdrop against other features in the bathroom.
Or add a twist and combine these tiles with a dark grout for a modern, interesting feature. This will accentuate and highlight each individual tile creating a grid-like effect on the walls.
Subway Tile Sizes Available
Usually, a subway tile comes in 75mm x 150mm but due to their popularity, various formats are now also on offer including the ultra-slim profile 70mm x 240mm and larger 100mm x 400mm. A subway tile that is bigger in size will add a modern design element to your bathroom.
Different Subway Tile Patterns To Lay
If you want to enhance visual interest and enhance the appearance of height to your bathroom walls, lay the Subway tile vertically instead of the tradition horizontal way. Or for the very latest in trends, is to lay these tile in a herringbone layout for a fresh new take.
Subway tiles are the perfect fit for any home and any style, from traditional to contemporary. These tiles have been ‘on trend’ for over 100 years and they don’t seem to be going anywhere! So if you want a tile that will last you a lifetime, choose a Subway tile pattern for your bathroom.
Please note that Tile Wizards do sell subway tiles, but only the white and white-bevelled edge variants, available in sizes: 75 x 150 mm, 100 x 200 mm, and 100 x 300 mm.
