White Subway Tile

It’s always fun to see tile trends evolve. The concept of White Subway tile classic, but has has been getting a texture and size change up lately. “Subway Tile” has become the widely used term for most rectangular tiles and most commonly refers to the glossy white 3×6 ceramic tile similar to what was used in New York City subways like in the photo below.

Artistic Tile’s Kyoto comes in several colors, in a 2” x9.5” size.

Manhattan is a brand new line from Artistic Tile which has a larger 4”x12” size. The surface is heavily undulated so that it will reflect a lot of light and create visual interest in a solid field of tile.

AKDO’s Origin ceramic comes in two sizes, a 2.5”x10.5” and a longer 2.5”x15.75” and in glossy and matte finishes. In addition to white, there is also a very pale grey called Ash in the assortment which makes a great off-white option.
