How To Choose Subway Tile

Subway tile is by far one of the most popular tiles I see in residential design today for kitchen back splashes and bathrooms.  I recommend them often to clients and always with satisfying results. However, there are so many things to consider when choosing the right subway tile for you and the application in which you are using it.

Not only do Subway tiles now come in various sizes, they also come in different colours and finishes, all of which can dictate the style of your overall design.  Below you can see just a few photos showing how subway tiles have been used in both kitchens and bathrooms.
