A look from the early 1920's that has fast gained popularity is the 'subway-style rectangular tile' or the metro tile (named after the Parisian undergrounds) in bright, glossy white. Historically, the metro tiles were used in an effort to reflect the dim artificial lighting within subways however, today metro tiles are used for their durability and their classical, clean and simple look - a style that is timeless.
The bevelled white metro tiles are sold per box of 90 tiles.
There are 88 metro tiles in 1 square metre, so a box is roughly a square metre.
To achieve the staggered 'brick layout' for bevelled metro tiles, bevelled half tiles can be purchased.
Whilst we endeavour to ensure that tiles leaving our store are from the same batch and of excellent quality, we cannot be held responsible for colour variations from the factory once the tiles are laid. Please randomly remove tiles from the boxes and check for colour consistency before laying.
Metro tiles are wonderful for shower walls or as splash areas behind washbasins and baths, and even behind the cooker in the kitchen.
