Metro tiles first made their appearance during the Art Deco era of the 1920’s. The gentle profile of these famous tiles creates texture accentuated by shadow. Instantly recognisable, this classis tile form has become a popular choice in modern interiors. Traditionally available in White, Cream and Black, these tiles adorned the wall when the Paris opened. Since then, tile colours and taste has changed to make the much greater choice we have today.
Metro is an easy wall tile choice when looking for a classic or period look in the bathroom or kitchen. Pair these tiles with a rustic wood effect tile on the floor for a modern industrial look. Alternatively a simple limestone or plain porcelain on the floor, will act as a ground for these classically shaped tiles.
