Poll: Do you think subway tiles will date?

In recent years, subway tiles in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry have been hugely popular. With good reason too - they can look absolutely fantastic.

 

But some people now fear that the explosion in popularity of subway tiles, even though they are a classic style, will lead to them being labelled as passé in coming years.

 

Our latest Workshop poll asks whether you think subway tiles will date. Let us know by voting in the poll on the front page. Feel free to also let us know your thoughts by replying below.

It's a classic style. It might go in and out of fashion but it will still look great.

Interesting discussion involved on the cost variations in the laying  of subway tiles here

Wether you are DIYing of having a contractor do the work 

A great start is to have all the information before you commit

They always remind me of gentlemens's public toilets.
