What are the advantages of vertical subway tiling?

There are several benefits related to using subway tiles in a vertical position. These include:

  • Creating a visual feature- vertical subway tiling can be used to create a stunning feature wall or tiling splash-back area. This attracts attention because of the unusual layout. Different coloured tiles and grout can also be used to add more personality and character to the tiling feature too. For example, a contrasting grout colour will really emphasize the layout of the tiles, while alternating tile colours can create a bolder result.
  • Perfect for all styles- whether you are looking to achieve a contemporary or a traditional finish for your space, vertical subway tiling can be a very effective choice. You could even opt for patterned subway tiles to add a more traditional touch to the tiling, for more rustic or country style properties.
