Tile Files: Classic White Subway Tile

Tile Files

I’m so excited to start this little series with you guys, sharing my favorite types, colors, and inspiration for all things tile. If there’s one thing I notice everywhere I go- it’s tile. Almost every restaurant, bar, office that you go to you’ll notice there’s most likely some kind of tile. It’s like when you buy a new car and everywhere you go you start to see that same car brand EVERYWHERE… has that ever happened to you? Well, I bet you’ll start noticing today’s tile a lot more after reading this post!

Subway tile has gotten very popular recently. It also has a pretty cool history behind it too! The iconic 3″ x 6″ white subway tile has been around since it’s debut in New York’s subway system in the early 1900’s. Hence the name, subway tile. You’ll most commonly find it with matching white grout or a black/ charcoal gray grout color to contrast a little. Today I’m sharing a mix of both! (I love this article that’s filled with info about subway tiles too!)
