One classic go-to option when it comes to tiling a wall space is White Metro Tiles. Here are 13 times these stylish brick-shaped beauties completely stole the show in our customer’s kitchens…
1) A refreshing splashback
A splashback is an easy-to-clean surface that stands behind a worktop, sink or cooker, and catches any moisture or cooking debris. But splashbacks are also a very effective way of injecting a stylish new look into a kitchen space.
As Claire of @chalkinteriorsbyclaire demonstrates below, white metro tiles suit the bill perfectly! She used White Smooth Brick Tiles, which have a sleek and charming design.
2) Herringbone in the home
Metro tiles are very versatile, so don’t be afraid to get creative with your layouts! If you want to break free from the traditional brickbond design, why not opt for a herringbone pattern instead? That’s exactly what Emma from @always_thattouchofgold did below.
3) Colour complementary
White Metro Tiles fit perfectly with any colour scheme, and they go particularly with with the warm metallics that are so in trend right now. In the pic below from @hoppshouse, our metro tiles perfectly complement these copper saucepans!
Metro tiles come in all different styles, including the ever-popular bumpy rustic design, which gives a characterful vintage look! Here, @west_end_refurb used our gorgeous Cotton Handcrafted Metro Tiles to create a charming kitchen scheme.
5) Spoilt for size
Metro tiles also offer a wide variety of sizes, which all result in entirely different looks! Whereas the 200×100 format is more spaceous and airy, the smaller 150×75 Smooth Metro Tiles result in a more compact and detailed display, as beautifully demonstrated in this vintage styled splashback from @parsonsgray.
6) Marvellous and modern
White metro tiles are completely timeless – meaning they complement period styled scheme every bit as well as they complement a clean and modern look, such as the one in this kitchen from @homethirtythree.
7) Contrast with paint
One fantastic way of making a powerful and impactful statement in a room is to combine white metro tiles with a dark and atmospheric paint – exactly what @ourmidfordhome has done with this herringbone kitchen feature.
8) Shelf life
Need extra storage? Because metro tiles are easy to drill through, it’s common to have an entire wall of metros, with shelves fixed to them. This is exactly what @kittyroseinteriors has achieved in the kitchen below!
