More Information

Metro Tiles have been around since the early 1800s.  They were a familiar sight – and still are – in the underground stations of London and Paris.  They started off by using white tiles to counteract the sheer darkness in the underground. It’s the simplicity and uniformity that make metro tiles sit neatly on a wall and blend in with lots of different interior styles.

Judging by the sales volumes, these tiles are just gaining in popularity. There are now 100s of colour variations and no range uses these better than the Prismatics Collection.

There are plenty of variations too.  Some have bevelled edges which adds a bit of interest to the overall effect.  Away from modern simplicity, Metro Tiles with a crackle glaze can bring a welcoming aged effect to a country kitchen.

Oh, and don’t assume that Metro Tiles have to be laid in a classic brickbond style.  Try a laying them in a stylish herringbone, stacked, or a vertical pattern to achieve something a little bit different.

It’s also worth spending a bit of time thinking about different coloured grouts, sealants and tile trim to keep things interesting.  We’re constantly being surprised by customers who are using metro tiles in new and creative ways.
