Classic Tiles We Love: Subway Tile

Subway tile has been around for over a hundred years, as it was first introduced in the New York City Subway System by famous architects George C. Heins and Christopher Grant LaFarge. Due to its durability, sleek look, and easy to clean abilities, the rectangular tile was considered the best tile for the subway system.


Since then, subway tile has remained a popular tile choice for homes, hotels, restaurants and many more. Available in a large variety of colors, and materials like ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone, subway tiles are perfect for kitchen backsplashes, bathrooms like shower walls, and fireplace facades.



Subway tiles can be laid in the traditional horizontal pattern, or in a vertical direction for a more modern appearance. Although the original size of subway tiles are 3" x 6", today subway tiles are offered in many different sizes, including 2.5" x 8", 3" x 12" and more.
