Metro Tiles

A retro style with a modern twist, this collection offers a choice of colours

Metro ceramics have a glossy finish and are used as part of a kitchen or bathroom splash back wall. They 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 Ceramics for a closer look.

Brick Effect Metro Ceramics

Metro ceramics are applied to walls in a brick effect fashion. This style is also known as a ‘running bond’ pattern. These premium engineered metro ceramics not only provide walls with a stylish appearance but are also highly practical. The glossy finish enables them to be cleaned and maintained with ease. Unlike other surfaces like wallpaper and paint which absorbs moisture, ceramic will protect underlying substrates. They are also popular for shops and restaurants, in which they provide a contemporary style. The brick effect appearance is created by a subtle ridge on its surface, resulting in them protruding from the wall slightly.
