Subway Style-Guide: Select The Perfect Option For Your Next Project

There are a lot of Subway tiles on the market today, so we put together a Subway Style-Guide to help you select the right option for your next project.

1.Keep It Classic

Using a Subway to create white, bright and clean looks is a popular choice. You can achieve a traditional look, with something like our White Gloss. This option, in particular, will work into almost any home- especially in the kitchen or laundry. The 75mm x 150mm size is excellent when laid in a brick-bond for the splashback, creating the bright, white classic interior.

2. Consider Colour

If you want to inject more personality into your space, consider a coloured Subway option. Different colours create different moods by provoking certain emotions. Therefore, creating a coloured feature wall using your subway tiles will change or enhance the mood of the space. For example, in a rustic styled home with timber-look tiles and timber countertops, a cool blue subway splashback in the kitchen will create a calm and organic mood.

3. Experiment with Textures

Textured tiles are great for adding depth and dimension to any space. If you want to achieve a subtle point of difference with your Subway tiles, consider our wave series. These will work well in bathrooms, laundries or kitchens as a feature wall or splashback.
