White subway tile with lamp

Ah, the iconic look of ceramic subway tile. Hygiene-obsessed Victorian sensibilities demanded an easy-to-clean option to line the tunnels of the newfangled subways systems, and lo, subway tile was born. Fast forward over 100 years, and ceramic tile is still appreciated for its easy-care features as well as its resistance to mold, mildew, and bacteria. With plenty of design options to please our 21st-century sensibilities, ceramic tile is still the best combination of healthy and stylish for spaces everywhere.
