Kitchen Subway Tiles

Are you looking to breathe new life into your kitchen without undergoing a full renovation? Kitchen subway tiles may be the solution you are looking for.

The classic, white subway tile has come a long way since its development and use in the New York subway in 1904, and is no longer limited to the timeless white, glossy rectangle we know so well. The availability of modern production techniques means the humble subway tile has expanded into a range of styles.

Di Lorenzo Tiles has sourced a vast range of beautiful kitchen subway tiles, which include a variety of sizes, colours and finishes, with a style to suit every design aesthetic.

What are the benefits of subway tiles in your kitchen?

Whether you decide on the classic, stylish and traditional white subway tile, or express your creativity with the latest tile designs available from Di Lorenzo, using kitchen subway tiles in your home is a perfect option.

Subway tiles can be also be laid in various patterns, allowing you to be creative with your tiles.

Traditionally, subway tiles are laid in a brick pattern, however other modern options include laying it stacked vertically or horizontally, herringbone pattern, or even ¾ offset. Explore various layout options and consider the overall style of your kitchen when choosing the tile pattern. It is also important to consider the cost to lay kitchen subway tiles as prices may vary depending on the selected pattern.

When using kitchen subway tiles, also consider the colour of the grout as this can significantly impact the overall look. Traditional white or grey grout is commonly used with white subway tiles for a seamless and classic appearance. However, you can experiment with contrasting grout colours such as dark grey or black to create a bold and more dramatic effect.


Subway tiles are available in a range of materials such as ceramic, porcelain, glass and natural stone. Each material has its own unique characteristics and maintenance requirements.

Ceramic and porcelain kitchen subway tiles are popular choices due to their durability and ease of maintenance – there are also endless options. A favourite is our Fez Collection which is slightly smaller than the normal subway tile and it is available in a range of colours, and a gloss or matt version.

Glass subway tiles will add a reflective look, while natural stone options such as marble and travertine can bring a touch of luxury to your kitchen.
