Call it subway or call it metro tile - the shape and style of the tiles continues to be a mainstay of design since the early 1900's. The style is timeless, but in what ways can it be used in a modern space?

Simple metro tiles with accents of detailed tiles are great for a subtle touch of decoration. The cream rectangles from Pratt & Larson make the multi colored diamond tiles pop so much more.


Bring the color scheme of your room into the wall’s design. Walker Zanger’s Ceramica Alhambra tiles offer an old style with a contemporary color choice.


Rejuvenate subway style with a 3-dimensional tile.This Whipped cream detail of the Half Baked collection from Alyse Edwards adds just enough of a compelling element in this classic design.


The thunder road tiles from Sonoma Tile’s Euphoria collection collection are the result of an ancient ceramic glazing technique - no two tiles are the same and together they create a work of art.
