Subway Tiles

Subway tile was originally developed for and used on the walls of New York City’s Subway stations at the beginning of the 20th century. With its pencil-thin grout lines, flat surface, and coved corners, it was easy to clean and to remove graffiti, so it got the name "sanitary-ware." The aesthetic of subway tile embodied the clean and sanitized sensibilities of the Victorian era, so soon it became popular throughout the USA in both commercial spaces and residential housing. Since that time, subway tile has become a classic style around the world. Influenced by the Art Deco, Arts & Crafts, and Art Nouveau movements of the-mid-1920s, subway tiles evolved, offering different finish options, color, pattern, and decorative styles. Today, they still are among the most popular choices for tile installations.

    Subway Tile Dimensions

    When it comes to tile design, subway tile sizes do matter. The most traditional subway tile dimensions are 3x6”. However, this small size can look a bit busy in showers. For bigger surfaces, you’d better consider a larger version of the same ratio with subway tile dimensions of 4x8". The 4x16" subway tile dimensions have become surprisingly common in the past few years. These tiles create a more modern look and less busy style. 3x12" subway tile dimensions present on the market tend to be produced in the "handmade" style, and are usually more expensive. Many tile lines are available at much larger dimensions like 8x20, 10x30, or 12x36, which are a great choice for showers and feature walls but can’t be called subway tiles despite their proportions.

    Large Subway Tile

    Standard subway tile size is great for almost any room and is typically used as kitchen backsplashes, wall accents, in showers, and pretty much anywhere else. Nowadays, manufacturers also produce large subway tile. The standard large format size is 4″x 8″ or even 4″x 12″. Large subway tile formats work well for backsplashes. They are especially helpful for smaller kitchens where these tiles help create the perception of a bigger space. Large subway tiles can also forge a feeling of continuity, especially if you extend the backsplash to the ceiling; besides, you will have fewer grout lines to clean. Large subway tile can be a great option for a bathroom as well.
