Creating Linear Textures with Kitchen Subway Tiles

Traditional kitchen subway tiles will feature a plain white gloss surface finish however, modern iterations are available in a variety of different colours and even textures allowing for the creation of more dynamic and unique looks. Our WigWag subway tile collection for example includes a simple, linear pattern that can be laid vertically or horizontally on your kitchen walls. These tiles can be used to increase the perception of space in your kitchen’s design scheme depending on the way they are laid: running the pattern upwards on the wall will create the illusion of a higher ceiling as the pattern draws the eye up, whereas laying the tiles horizontally across the wall will create the illusion of a wider space. Furthermore, these types of tiles will add an element of texture in your design scheme, taking a step away from the simple plain surface finish of the traditional white kitchen subway tile.
