Metro tiles are a timeless classic when it comes to decorating a Kitchen or Bathroom Wall space. They first came about in the underground stations, at the turn of the 20th century, where different colour combinations were used so that passengers could recognise the stations.
There are so many choices with metro tiles, including brick-shaped, mini brick, elongated brick-shaped, in both bevelled and smooth options, with crackle-glazed options as well as bumpy, rustic designs. So you’re guaranteed to find the perfect design to match your personality.
