Classic Subway Tile Bathtub SurroundTraditional Bathroom, Minneapolis

Unglazed porcelain – 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.

    Natural Grey is a color choice for Custom Brand grouts. Any grey is acceptable it is when you use colored grouts it is not authentic to the period choices.

    How do you maintain the grout colour? With time it gets darker on areas of more traffic, not even with a steam mop you can make it even.

    I did not work on the painting but the client whole house was very period. I would check with your local paint store and see if there is a arts and crafts color palette to draw from. It is a grayish toupe color in general.

    Any gray is fine. To get the look that would have been at the period many just used the mortar grey. Now we have lots of shades of grays and colors to choose from which can be confusing at times.

    Yes it is an off white. It is made to match the original tile from the 1890's to the 1930's unglazed porcelain tile which has a grey tone to the tile.

      The color they used was called Avalon. It can be called an off white It has a antique look to it which and is an exact match to most all of the tiles of the 1890's to the 1930's installations. It is a toned down white with a hint of aged yellow. The floor is an unglazed porcelain tile to keep people from slipping when it is wet.

      Forgot this was a window. I covered the mullions with whatever size board worked. Looks like they used l" wood for windowsill and left and inch at either end. Underneath window is a lx4. I used l l/4" for sill. It's a preference.

      We have this woodwork for every door and window in our house in the natural wood..It truly is the crowning glory of our home. My brother-in-law loved it so much he duplicated it in his brand new built home.....after he had already put something else in first. He redid his WHOLE house. The result was nothing less than stunning.

      Some of the best mud room tile to use are terra cotta, quarry tile and unglazed porcelain. This is unglaze porcelain tile shown here. It is very durable and has a toothy feel to it making it non slip when what're gets on it.

    Can you tell me why you chose unglazed rather than gloss subway tiles?

    • PRO

      The unglazed are only for the floor tiles and they make the floor less slippery when wet. The wall tiles are glossy.

      Unglazed (on the floor) is also traditional to the Sanitary movement, if you're restoring an old bathroom.

        Hi! Just found this thread as we are about to pick a Mapei grout for our subway tiles in bathroom - trying to decide between Warm Grey, Frost, and Silver. It's so hard to know how it will turn out!

        We saw a Warm Grey sample that looked kind of beige/warm and worried that wouldn't go well with the carrera marble which is quite grey. But not sure if Frost will be too light or if Silver will be too dark!

        Dying to know what you went with and how it turned out! :)

        shoshana what grout did you end up choosing, also need to make my decison. I think silver too dark....leaning towards warm grey

                    I am not a tile setter to give you a technical reason but in general the pillow edge pushes down the grout into the joints and as you run your rubber float over it cleans the edges easier and leaves the grout evener than a flat edge for DIY installers. One of the most common comments we receive is people tend to love the flat edge look a lot more than the pillowed edge. They are disappointed with the pillow edge look when trying to keep with the historic look of their homes. The best advice I can give you to keep with the original style of the home is to keep using products from the period it was built. Where you can save money is think about how you live currently. If you use lots of rugs in your current bathroom and plan on using rugs with the new then don't get the most expensive tile that you never see. As for your budgets I recommend thinking of your total budget of a bathroom not piece by piece budgeting. Most bathroom remodels are $1500 - $25000 to redo depending on how much you have to do and how big of a room it is. Tiles can be 50% - 70% of a bathroom budget. Most bathrooms we make for people range from $500 - $10,000. If your budget is in that range you will be able to get everything you want. Map out your design and order a sample pack from us, you can order 5 colors for $12.75. We also have planning guides on our website and we can send you too. http://www.claysquared.com/index.php/ceramic-tiles/resources/Bathroom_Planning

                    I'm definitely a fan of the hexagonal tile patterns! I'm just wondering, is it harder to clean these tiles compared to larger ones? With them being so small it seems like it might be a little harder to clean. http://www.stoneandtilecare.net

                    Cleaning tiles is more about cleaning the grout. The tiles are non-viterious and do not absorb water. They are easy to clean. More grout can be a little more work to clean but is not any more than any other tile that is 1" or 2" in size. Usually people choose the 1" or the 2" hex based on scale of the room and which size you like best.
