Originally designed for New York’s first subway station, subway tile is now widely known as a popular tile for homes and businesses alike. The subway architects were originally attracted to tile because it doesn’t stain and is easy to clean. More than a century later, subway tile brings the same benefits to this kitchen’s backsplash. Ceramic tile is also fire-resistant and water-resistant, standing up to the high-traffic use of thousands, or just your family! Considering ceramic tile’s design versatility, it’s no wonder that subway tile is a perennial favorite, now offered in colors, textures, and sizes for any design destination.
