Metro brick tiles have been a firm favourite in kitchens and bathrooms for years and years. During any trip to London you’re likely to have travelled on the Underground at some point or, further afield, you might have visited the New York Subway or Paris Metro. There is one common factor that links all three together (bar the trains!) which is the iconic metro tile.

Originating from the early 20th Century when underground transport was just starting out, the metro was first developed out of practicality before finally becoming a style icon. Since its origins, the metro brick tile has now become a desirable choice for interiors within the home – and comes in a huge range of sizes, finishes and colours.

So, why is the metro one of the most popular tile designs for today’s discerning homeowner? It’s largely down to its versatility and multiple uses throughout the home. Simple to lay in a variety of different metro brick tile patterns, easy to maintain and appropriate for a number of different rooms, it’s a fantastic choice to create a contemporary, stylish finish.

In addition, there are so many opportunities to play around with metro brick tiles to achieve a distinctive, unique and fun look without needing to be too bold or over-the-top. Yes, you could go ahead and cover an entire statement wall, but you can also create a cool half-wall or incorporate a simple splashback into your scheme.

And although the metro is always a classic when laid in a simple brick format, it can also be used in a number of fun ways to create a more affordable home update. Used with either complementary or contrasting coloured grout, you’d be hard pressed to choose a simpler and more cost effective tile for your home renovations. Whatever your style choice, metro tiles are the way to go!
