Ceramic Metro tiles have a glossy finish and are used as part of a kitchen or bathroom splash back wall. These tiles are available in a range of popular colours. The metro brick style was first popularised in subway underpasses within some of the United States’ largest cities during the 1960s and 1970s. The timeless appeal has led to them becoming a desirable option for home interiors. You can order a sample of any of our Metro tiles for a closer look.
Brick Effect Metro Tiles
Metro tiles are applied to walls in a brick effect fashion. This style is also known as a ‘running bond’ pattern. These premium engineered metro tiles not only provide walls with a stylish appearance but are also highly practical. The glossy finish ensures that Metro tiles are easy to clean and also have a low moisture absorption rate. Unlike other surfaces like wallpaper and paint which absorb moisture, ceramic tiles will protect underlying substrates. These tiles are also used in shops and restaurants, in which they provide a contemporary style. The brick effect in these metro tiles is created by a subtle ridge on the surface of the tile, resulting in them protruding from the wall slightly.
