Featured Image:  H-Line Series Subway Tile

Back in the early 1900’s when the New York City Subway was unveiled, the tiles used brightened up the underground transit system. What a great choice to brighten a tunnel with white tile!

This simple rectangular tile with dark grout featuring station location names in brightly colored mosaics was immediately a hit in bathrooms and kitchens across America.

Today, this tile remains a classic style. It’s an easy to clean, tightly grouted tile that fits in with most decors without feeling dated. The clean, crisp design – now in multiple sizes and colors, gives a nod to the past while still feeling modern and sleek.

Many Styles in Today’s Subway Tiles

Depending upon where you want to use Subway tiles, you have a plethora of choices to make this tile unique to your home. If you are using this tile in a high traffic area, like a kitchen, consider using a dark grout so it looks just like the Subway and is easy to keep looking great.

Want a more modern look? Consider our H-Line Series [featured above] in Café, Pearl or Straw for the classic shape in a fresh, new color.
