What Are Bevelled Edge Tiles?

Also known as “subway tiles,” bevelled tiles have the appearance of a brick, with bevelled edges. This type of tile gets its moniker from the brick tiles used in the construction of the underground train system, where these tiles adorn the walls of stations across London.

Bevelled tiles are easy to clean and maintain, and they provide a clean look to any room in the home. These tiles offer a retro-feel to the kitchen, bathrooms, and hallways. The classic look of these tiles combines well with plain colours like white and red, providing a chic look to contemporary homes.

Create Texture with Bevelled Tiles

Bevelled tiles look fantastic in bathroom and kitchen designs, and they are great for use as backsplashes. Bevelled tiles aren’t suitable for flooring, due to the recesses they create in-between the tiles.

Nowadays, tiling manufacturers produce bevelled tiles in a wide range of sizes, with different degrees of the bevel on the edges. The modern designs of bevelled tiles have a gentle slope down to the side, whereas the original tiles have more of a pronounced, sharper bevelling. This feature provides additional depth, making it pop while enhancing the visual appeal of the tiles.

Available in a Wide Range of Colours

One of the most attractive fitment designs for bevelled tiles involves the use of multiple colours in a single wall. Adding a row of red or black tiles to a white backsplash provides the wall with a visual touchpoint that enhances the visual aspects of the room.

Mixing colours on your wall creates a chic and retro look that will leave your guests marvelling at your creativity. Plan your layout before you decide on your tiles. There are plenty of colours to choose from, allowing you to mix and match as you please.

Use white tiles on your kitchen walls, and accentuate the room with the use of coloured tiles for the backsplash, there is no limitation on the creative designs that are possible with the use of bevelled tiling.

Mixing colours may seem like a challenge, but with some advanced planning, you can design a multi-coloured layout that works in almost any setting. Strategically placing a row of black bevelled tiles helps to accentuate the space in showers and larger rooms, we recommend using vertical or horizontal stripes of neutral colours to create an outstanding contrast with darker colours like almond and beige.

Select the Right Finish

The finish is another essential factor to consider when purchasing your bevelled tiles. Traditional subway-style tiles have a high gloss finish that reflects light. While this fills up the room with colour, it may be overpowering for specific places in the home like the bedroom or study. However, manufacturers now produce bevelled tiles in a range of matte and other subtle colours as well. The matte finish provides a contemporary but casual look to the room.

Are Bevelled Edge Tiles Ideal for Kitchen Splash Backs?

Splashbacks are our favourite use for bevelled tiles. There is so much variety when it comes to selecting the colours, allowing you to create patterns that draw attention and excite the senses from your kitchen wall. If the use of dramatic colour isn’t your thing, then a set of white bevelled tiles leading down to white cabinets provides a clean and seamless look that’s akin to what you might expect from a professional kitchen.

Where are Bevelled Edge Tiles Best Used?

The kitchen isn’t the only place where bevelled tiles make an outstanding visual impact. Bevelled tiles look great on the walls of the bathroom, and they help to shield your walls from moisture that may result in the development of toxic mould and rising damp. Frame the shower using bevelled tiles, or separate different areas in the bathroom.

If you’re looking for a classic colour scheme, try using black and white bevelled tiles to create a stunning vanity area around the mirrors. The use of bevelled tiles in the lounge helps to turn a drab and empty wall into a  focal point that captures the attention of your guests.
