Subway Tile

Subway tile refers to a rectangular shaped tile that was first introduced in New York’s subway stations. Traditionally they are white and measure 3 inches by 6 inches in size but have expanded over the years to include slimmer and larger formats, along with a wide array of colors and finishes. Subway tile is typically laid in a brick pattern but can be arranged to create a variety of patterns.
