Subway tiles may add a traditional feel to a place, but their look certainly never gets old. They became popular for use in public spaces (subways) because of their durability and easy-to-clean properties. The traditional ceramic subway tiles, usually in white with flat and high glazed surfaces, are commonly applied horizontally with matching grout lines to achieve a classic and endless look. However, new stylised takes on the original designs have introduced countless styles and colours that adapt to every look.
At Design Tiles we have a wide selection of subway tiles suitable for both domestic and commercial applications, for the classic to the most wild styles.
For a clean, simple and friendly look, apply single-color tiles in walls and back-splashes. Use tiles with concave surface or crackle finish to add depth and movement.
There are many colour options available. Mix and match to add life and brighten up the room. You can place the tiles horizontally, or vertically for a bolder appearance.
Beveled edge tiles will suit both traditional and contemporary styled rooms. Matt and Satin tiles create a subtle texture that will soften the look, while Gloss finish is a beautiful choice for modern settings. If you are looking for something fierce, use a Mirror finish that no one will forget.
If you like the traditional application but want to do something special, use a dark grout; the tile and the pattern you choose will stand out.
