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.
Today we want to show you some newer lines that include glossy white in interesting sizes and finishes.
Artistic Tile’s Kyoto comes in several colors, in a 2” x9.5” size.
Kyoto was the perfect choice for the kitchen backsplash on this project where we collaborated on the interior design and all of the tile and stone installation.
Vida from AKDO has a more matte finish and is heavily textured. Shown here in Paloma Herringbone, this series is also available in a striking 6”x20” Field 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.
