Subway Tile originated as a ceramic tile, but now it is almost as common to see this classic shape made of glass. It yields a more reflective and modern surface and can add dimension to any space. It also ranges from clear and colorful, to shimmery and sleek.
One of the biggest trends in Subway Tile is, well, BIG! Subway tile has branched from its standard 3”x6” size into a breath of additional sizes. Some of the most popular sizes today are an elongated 4”x12” and 4”x16” subway tile. These tiles have a classic appeal but yield a more modern look, and they can make a space feel larger.
Bold and Bright
