If you want to add a classic touch to a place, e.g. a kitchen or bathroom, using subway tiles instead of special ordered tiles or marble is a great solution. It’s fresh, fun and inexpensive!
There’s so many fun possibilities for how you can lay subway tile and it doesn’t have to be traditional, it can be super creative too! You can place the tiles horizontally or vertically, in a traditional herringbone pattern or a straight herringbone pattern. The possibilities are endless and it’s crazy how just a little variation can create a new totally unique pattern. Just look at the examples below!
As you probably already know, subway tiles got their name from the ceramic tiles used on the walls of the New York City subway stations in the early twentieth century.
