Subway Tile Shower

Historic reproduction Subway tile for the walls and Unglazed porcelain hexagons for the floor. – There is no glazing or any other coating applied to the tile. Their color is the same on the face of the tile as it is on the back resulting in very durable tiles that do not show the effects of heavy traffic. The most common unglazed tiles are the red quarry tiles or the granite looking porcelain ceramic tiles used in heavy commercial areas. Historic matches to the original tiles made from 1890 - 1930's. Subway Ceramic floor tiles are made of the highest quality unglazed porcelain and carefully arranged on a fiber mesh as one square foot sheets. A complimentary black hex is also in stock in both sizes and available by the sheet for creating borders and accent designs.
Subway Ceramics offers vintage tile is 3/8" thick, with a flat surface and square edges. The Subway Ceramics collection of traditional subway tile, moldings and accessories.

Does water go outside the shower area in this design? - Does water go outside the shower area in this design? It looks like the distance between the rose and the end of shower wall is a little small and water might go around the corner?

The floor is slightly sloped to allow the water to drain.

We recommend to our clients to use a Natural Grey just like the period and that is what they used in this installation.

Hello, this is a beautiful bathroom. Do you happen to know the specific brand and color of the grout that was used with the subway tiles ? It would be greatly appreciated.

to many variables to give an answer I design my bathrooms as wet rooms with all floor areas going to a linear wall drain so it doesn't matter.

These appear to be like most subway tiles which come in a standard 3x6" size. The row at the bottom is made of 6x6 tiles, which they added kind of like a baseboard.

Here is another shot of this space.


The piece at the bottom is called a base cove and is curved at the bottom and acts as a base moulding. The field tile is a 3x6 with a flat, black pencil liner as a "belly band" around the space. Just a detail. Nice design, it looks classic. Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart
