The number of owners who put on the tiles of the subway has increased due to the clean lines, the durability and different colors that spice up a kitchen or bathroom. The standard 3×6 subway tile was used once in the subway and the bathrooms due to the grout lines for cleaning and ease of cleaning. Originally, the subway tile was 2 by 6 and white. The tile was placed in bathrooms because it was easy to clean and durable.
As the popularity of subway tiles increased, manufacturers, including Daltile, began selling the larger 3×6 subway tile in a variety of colors. The tiles are offered with a matte or glossy finish and are made with ceramic, glass, stone or marble. Before ordering the tiles, the owners should measure the area where the tile will go and try to find a color that will work well.
Daltile has study centers scattered throughout the United States with representatives who can help owners choose the colors and the order of the correct amount. They can also hire a tile setter to help design a new bathroom or kitchen. Any large home improvement store can order 3×6 subway tile but the variety is more limited. The prices vary according to the design, the quantity and in which the product was purchased.
