Subway Tile is a glazed rectangular ceramic or porcelain tile made famous by the New York City subway system. The classic subway tile measures 3”x6” although many rectangular tiles ranging from 2x4 to 3x9 have been come to be called subway tiles. Subway tile continues to be a top choice for bathroom walls and kitchen backsplashes among other applications.
Field tile refers to standard square and rectangular shaped tiles. We offer field tile in squares from 4x4 to 12x12 and rectangles from 2x6 to 6x12.
Specialty shapes refer to any type of tile that isn’t a square or rectangle. Some specialty shapes, like Star and Cross, utilize complementary shapes to create the desired pattern and shapes like Chaine Homme and Chaine Femme feature an interlocking pattern. Shapes like Picket offer a variety of configurations to create unique patterns.
Mosaic tiles are smaller tiles that are sheeted for easier installation. Mosaic tiles are face taped with clear face tape on the front of the mosaic tile. Our standard mosaic template is a 3/16" grout spacing.
All sizes can be used on floors but there are considerations to make depending on the application. Smaller tiles use more grout lines compared to larger tiles and therefore provide more grip making them a great choice for bathroom floors and shower pans where added traction is warranted.
Larger size tiles on floors or walls in a small room will make the space feel bigger.
