Subway tile is the classic older sibling to all of our other Subway Ceramics lines. The authentic subway tile is timeless, beautiful, and most importantly buildable. These old standards are the perfect authentic material to act as the base for a redesign of any space.
The traditional pattern for subway tile is an offset grid of three by six inch pieces. This pattern got its start in the New York City Subway in the early 1900’s. Heritage Tile is the sole supplier for restoring the original tile in the NYC Subway. With a flat surface, rectified edges, and pencil thin grout joints, this attractive tile was quickly adopted for use in homes and businesses. Brownstones, Queen Anne style homes, and Bungalows were just a few of the architectural styles that embraced this aesthetic in the early 20th century.
This collection includes classic moldings, trim pieces, and ceramic accessories in over 40 glaze options. Each piece was created as part of a comprehensive tile system that provides luxurious surfaces, sleek radius curves, pencil-thin grout lines and intricate details.
This authentic tile has edged its way into modern decor with its sleek finish and large role in the “farmhouse chic” trend. While our inspiration comes from a desire to preserve the heritage of authentic American tile, this material translates well into the decor styles of today and still manages to remain timeless.
Our subway tile glazes reproduce classic Victorian-era colors in a deep, translucent, crackle finish. Simple finishes like Satin Ivory and Gloss Avalon enhance the sleek style of the traditional Subway Tile Series.
