Updating the Classic Aesthetic

by | Jul 15, 2020

It’s everywhere. From bathrooms to restaurants, bars to foyers, subway tile is a staple of design. The traditional three inch by six inch tiles lend a classic look to many spaces, but that’s not where the subway line ends. We’ve taken a long-standing classic for a ride into the modern day with larger format subway tiles.

The option to update your standard subway look with six inch by nine inch tiles allows you to create timeless, authentic spaces that also step into modernity. This proportionately larger tile creates similar effects to the original  subway look in a more airy way. There are less grout lines due to the larger tiles and more tile surface so you can update your bathroom in a way that preserves the classical feel of your home.

For an even more drastic modernization of the traditional subway look, opt for a three inch by twelve inch tile. This is one of the largest subway tiles available and it creates a look unlike anything you’ve seen before.

These large scale tiles incorporate a classic elegance into spaces that previously felt dated. Keeping the width of these tiles the same as the original three-inch by six-inch subway tiles is a nod to the past and a step toward the future.

Both of these updated sizes of Subway Ceramics are just a portion of a complete solution to subway tile. Our entire collection uses large radius trims and creates a holistic look that, when complete, is refreshingly new. 

Our deviation from conventional tile collections allows our final products to be fresh, sleek, and effortless. Modernizing the field tile was just the first step- how we turn corners and provide sensible design options from beginning to end is what completes the collection.

We are all about preserving and honoring the origins of tile, the timelessness of the craft, and the intricacy of the final product. That’s why we continue to offer updated, modernized versions of the Subway Ceramics aesthetic that made us fall in love with tile in the first place. Join us for a deeper dive into the Aesthetic Curations Series where we discuss the updates to tile styles from years past and how to enhance the aesthetics of your home.
