Trending Now – Four Types of White Wall Tiles

So you have finally decided on the colour scheme for your room—all white. It’s sleek, clean, and appealing to the contemporary minimalist. No matter whether you got the idea from a sudden burst of inspiration or from a magazine you noticed in the aisle at the supermarket, you no doubt have come to know that white wall tiles seem for the most part to stay in style. But now comes the hard part—exactly what kind of tiles? Consider what options are available to you here at TFO.

White subway wall tiles


Let’s start with subway tiles. They are so named because these small rectangular tiles were actually used in the New York subway system when it opened over a hundred years ago. However they have remained popular in kitchen and bathrooms, and it’s common to see white wall installations of subway tiles in restaurant kitchens. In short, they’re a  retro-feel style that remains relevant. Are they for you?

Not only do they provide a visually appealing effect, but by manipulating the reflection of light, these tiles add depth and texture to a room.

Rectified white wall tiles

Rectified white wall tiles

For an elegant contemporary look you might be partial to rectified tiles. These tiles have been mechanically cut so that all the tiles are precisely the same size, hence “rectified”. What are the benefits? Rectified tiles give a modern look due to the fact that you can place the tiles much closer together than non-rectified tiles. In fact they can be placed at a minimum spacing of 1.5mm. This smaller gap means that the grout lines are almost invisible, and gives the illusion of seamlessness. It also means that the grout, if the colour is properly chosen, will even seem like part of the décor.

White polished porcelain wall tiles

Another option for your white wall tiles are polished porcelain tiles. This does not mean that the tiles have been glazed. Rather, it means that the surface has been ground down until it produces a high polish. Porcelain tiles come in an almost endless variety of colours and patterns. If they are properly sealed, they also are highly resistant to staining.
