Timeless Subway Tile

With one of the largest selections of subway tile in the market, Daltile continues to showcase this versatile look in kitchens and bathrooms around the world.

The Design That Defined an Era
Introduced over a hundred years ago in the New York City Subway System, the popularity of this tile has proven to be timeless. With its sleek, rectangular look, subway tile has now become a household name thanks to architects George C. Heins and Christopher Grant LaFarge. They were hired to work on the subway system and chose the tile for its versatility, durability and easy-to-clean characteristics.

Subway tile has become so popular that you'll find it in homes, restaurants, hotels and just about any place you can imagine. Whether you need a spectacular backsplash in your kitchen or a new look for a bathroom, subway tile is not only stylish, but it’s easy to maintain and durable enough to handle the wear and tear on a daily basis.

Great for multiple applications, subway tile works in commercial and residential environments and is often used on walls in kitchen backsplashes and countertops, in bathrooms around tubs and showers and even on fireplaces.
