1. Subway Tiles

Subway tiles are rectangular in shape, typically with a 3:1 aspect ratio, and are arranged in a simple, staggered brick pattern. They derive their name from the tiles used in early 20th-century subway stations in New York City. Subway tiles have a timeless appeal and are ideal for creating a clean, contemporary look in kitchens, bathrooms, and splashbacks. They are available in various colours to match your room.

 2. Herringbone Tiles

Herringbone tiles are rectangular tiles arranged in an interlocking, zigzag pattern resembling a fish skeleton. The pattern is created by laying the tiles at a 45-degree angle to the adjacent tile, forming a distinctive "V" shape. Herringbone tiles add visual interest and texture to any space and work well as a feature wall.

3. Chevron Tiles

 Chevron tiles

Chevron tiles are similar to herringbone tiles in that they create a zigzag pattern. Chevron tiles are cut at a 45-degree angle on each end, allowing them to fit together seamlessly to create a continuous "V" pattern. This design creates a more streamlined look compared to herringbone tiles, and it is often used to create a sense of movement and energy in a room.

Honeycomb tiles are versatile and can be used to create striking feature walls or splashbacks.
