In 1904 subway tile got its start when the first white-walled underground transit station came online in New York City. Easy to clean, the 3” x 6” tile quickly became popular in bathrooms and kitchens. Classic and contemporary, it is has remained fashionable for over 100 years. Always classic, the plain white subway tile is only a single option among dozens of different choices. Today, subway tile is available in many colors, smooth or beveled edges, glossy or flat glazes – and many sizes other than the traditional 3″ x 6″. There are infinite ways to integrate subway tile into your design palette.
