Subway tiles are seeing renewed popularity
Originally made for the New York underground train stations, the 150*75mm glazed ceramic tile has seen resurgence in the design of many fashionable projects.
Previously used in kitchens, laundries and bathrooms because they are easy to clean and stain resistant, subway tiles have moved to other areas such as fireplaces because of their excellent heat resistance.
They come in a dazzling array of colours and finishes, with manufacturers also offering a multitude of sizes to suit any style of decor.
Versatile and charming, the humble subway is also reasonably priced, giving a high impact designer look for those on a budget.
