albuquerque subway tile flooring

Subway tile was an exciting new development in flooring when it emerged in 1904. A soon-to-be classic, its title is derived from the busy American subway stations whose walls it adorned during its debut.

No longer an exclusively subterranean fixture, subway tile is now a popular choice for Albuquerque homeowners seeking to replicate the wonders of the early 20th century in their own kitchens and bathrooms.

Subway tile comes in a hugely diverse range of colors, sizes and shapes to custom-match any preexisting home decor. Because of the sheer range of possible tile styles, Floor Coverings International Albuquerque and Santa Fe can assure readers that the popularity of these decorative subway pieces does not predict commonplace interior design. On the contrary, your subway tile is your own, and there will be no other tile arrangements quite like it!

Subway Tile Style

Technically, tiles are “subway-style” so long as their length exceeds their width. Possible tile styles for subway tile owners include straight offset, diagonal, horizontal, parquet, and vertical! A choice in subway tile is an exciting foray into the world of gorgeous custom home design and pattern variance. Let subway tile flooring bring out your inner artist and make your bathroom or kitchen area your canvas.

Subway Tile Materials

Subway tile comes in a variety of materials. Your kitchen backsplash can consist of ceramic subway tile, or your bathroom can feature glass subway tile on the floor.

Ceramic and porcelain are your more traditional options, delivering a classic vibe with a long history of prominent display. Glass, on the other hand, has a more modern feel, translucent and clean-cut. The material of your choice can also be beveled along the edges for subtle geometric touch that gives the tiles a little more pop.
