Subway Tiles in Glass - Textured Subscape Glass Tile by Escape Glass

"Imitation is the highest form of flattery" holds true when it comes to subway tile. Given the popularity of the classic theme, many variations are available on the market.

The kitchen in recent years has become the most multifunctional and used room of any home. From doubling up as open-plan living rooms to makeshift home offices, our kitchens are ever changing.

Investing in any element of the kitchen, especially the splashback, can prove invaluable, even more so when it comes to adding value for resale. Be inspired to make the right style choices for your home.

Subscape Glass is the perfect choice for Bathrooms and Laundries too. 

Did you know that they first showed up underground? In New York City’s subway system, to be exact.

When the subway opened in 1904, the NY-based architectural firm Heins & LaFarge was issued a challenging task. They needed to create a surface that was not just easy to clean but would also offer first-time passengers a familiar environment that would help put them at ease.

Their solution was what we now know as a subway tile, a thin slab of baked clay or other material with slightly curved edges and a glossy finish. This product helped subway stations look bright, polished, and sanitary even over prolonged periods.

Subway tiles rose out of the Victorian obsession with cleanliness and hygiene. Because of their glazed finish, they are easy to wash, reflect light, and are stain resistant. They’ve earned a reputation for being sanitary and utilitarian and have gone on to become a wall covering of choice for everything from bathrooms to butcher shops!

We have taken this concept one step further and removed the need for grout making the look of subway tiles even easier to clean, also making it available in every colour imaginable.

Subscape Glass by Escape Glass takes it to the next level by offering this in one continuous piece. This means less installation time and fuss.
