Current Tile Crush- Picket Tiles

Let’s face it- subway tile will always be a thing, but when you’re ready to venture out beyond the world of the classic 3×6 rectangle, let us introduce you to our current favorite tile shape: picket tiles.

Fireclay Tile has a wide selection of beautiful colors for their picket tiles, but since it’s one of their specialty tiles, it’s going to run you a pretty penny. See the list below for a few more affordable picket options:

I am so happy they went for it & I can’t wait to see it installed- stay tuned!

Have a happy Friday!
