Subway tile bathroom – This type of tile you have seen lately in all places. And it is suffering a resurgence of the depths. And the latter is literal. The first time this type of tile was used as a cladding was in the construction of the New York subway at the beginning of the 19th century. When the designers were looking for a material that was resistant, easy to clean, and brought light to the tunnels and subway stations.
Since then, it has been extrapolated to other cities and from there it has jumped into homes, as a synonym of a very careful industrial style. We usually see it in kitchens and bathrooms like this, in which the pieces can be placed in different ways with very different results. Placement of subway tile bathroom: these can present a continuous joint placement, that is, with the tiles completely parallel both horizontally and vertically.
Or with collation to break-together as is the case of these walls. The joints can be placed in the middle of the upper tile, or 1/3 (look at the pillar covering). Types of tiles: what characterizes a subway tile bathroom is that its length is twice its width. From here, we can find them matte or enameled; with bevel or without it; craquelure or smooth; white, black or colored.
