Welcome to a special gallery featuring beautiful Italian ceramic subway tiles from FAP Ceramiche’s Manhattan Collection.
The Manhattan Collection features lovely Italian-made ceramic subway-style tiles in nine glazes that pick up the light wonderfully.
They come in a range of colors, ranging from the bright salmon-pink in the picture above, to the more muted blacks, grays, browns, and white displayed in the rest of the gallery.
Ceramic subway tiles are very trendy; watch any home renovation show and you’ll probably see the designers selecting subway tiles for the bathroom or a kitchen backsplash.
And this is for good reason: beyond being trendy, ceramic tiles are simply ideal for bathrooms and kitchens. They do not stain or scratch, are easy to clean, and will not fade or discolor over time.
Adding a bit of subway tile to your home helps a contemporary design feel more metropolitan.
Far from being only for bathrooms and kitchens, however, we have examples of these lovely tiles being used in both commercial rooms, including the small cafe shown above, and the metro station below.
The easy-to-clean subway tiles in this metro station are in stripes of taupe, black, and white. The tiles add a bit of flair and style, but are still easily taken care of and are not damaged easily. Perfect for a public place.
While subway tiles are most typically found in bathrooms or kitchens, where mildew and mold growing can be an issue, they also can be used as an accent wall in a main living area of the home. White tiles in this living room lend an air of sophistication to this already modern, yet contemporary living room.
The main work area of this kitchen is tiled in black and white tiles that complement the distressed charcoal cabinets. A stripe of black, white, and gray tiles runs two tiles above the countertops, breaking up the flat colors of the rest of the walls.
Another example of subway tile in a commercial setting. This clothing store has patterned subway tile walls in cream, light brown, and a muted red. The glossy glaze of the tiles gives the shop a clean, well-taken care of look that doesn’t require a lot of elbow-grease to maintain.
This modestly sized bathroom is tiled in white, brown, and black. The lower half of the room is in white, with a strip of brown tile separating the black tile from the white. The result is a gorgeous, sophisticated bathroom that is resistant to mildew and mold.
Another luxurious bathroom with a parquet floor and floor-to-ceiling tiling. The lighter cream tiles are separated from the darker brown tiles by ceramic molding. The elegance of the room is ramped up further by the chandelier hanging from the deep coffered ceiling.
This modern bathroom is tiled in large, beige tiles on the right, and dark subway tiles to the left and behind the shower enclosure. Glass tiles cover the vanity with a simple vessel sink.
This bathroom boasts one of the brighter colors the tiles are available in: bright, deep blue. The blue tiles are broken up by a strip of white several feet from the white tiles that meet the floor.
This light and bright bathroom is in white and dove-gray tiles. For contrast, the floor of the shower stall is in striped tile. Towel storage is beneath the slim vanity.
