Top considerations for using vertical subway tiles in the bathroom

There are several things to consider when tiling your bathroom with vertical subway tiles. These include:

  • Making a tiling feature- you can use vertical subway tiles to create an attractive bathroom feature wall, shower enclosure feature, or stunning splash back. You could consider:
    • using a contrasting grout colour to really make the shape and style stand out
    • using alternating colour combinations or contrasting colours like black and white
  • Adding border tiles- using vertical subway tiles all around your bathroom can allow you to also add vertical border tiles too. These can fit seamlessly with the rest of the tiling in your bathroom, but can also add a unique and personal appeal to your room. You could opt for monochrome colour combination, or complementary colours instead.
