Subway tiles, as you know them, were first produced around 1900 during the construction of the Parisian Metro. Since then, they’ve made their appearance in homes and have become a sought after material. The standard size, 7,5 x 15 cm und 10 x 20, cm with the characteristic bevelled edges, come in a variety of colours, white, black, vanilla, turquoise, just to name a few.
If you think that subway tiles are sturdy thanks to their manufacturing process, you’re absolutely right. Furthermore, subway tiles are easy to clean—a simple wipe with a damp towel takes care of most dirt.
Like subway tiles that introduce an older flair to the home, vintage tiles also have their very unique charm. Vintage patterns and antiquing is on trend now and with their understated lustre give you that nostalgic touch. The colourful vintage patterns use floral and classy designs, a bit like “Patch-Work”.
Vintage and subway tiles let you make a bold statement and express yourself through the design of your home, regardless of whether it is an older or more recently built property.
