Glass Metro Tiles
152x75x8 mm Glass Tiles for Kitchen & Bathroom Splashback
★★★★★ Stunning tiles - very impressed!
Lovely tiles which finish off my kitchen perfectly. I love the way they reflect under different lighting. Being glass, it also means you can make a feature out of them around corners, with no need for any trim – they create a great effect on my kitchen window sill! They’re also easy to cut with a diamond glass blade with very little wastage. Great communication from Chris with prompt delivery updates and tracking details. I would definitely recommend these tiles and wouldn’t hesitate to buy from Alec Buchan again in the future. Luke Whitaker – January 5, 2017

Absolutely, if you have tiled before you are more than half way there.
Stunning 152x75x8 mm glass metro tiles (known as glass subway tiles in USA) now available in UK.
A real alternative to their ceramic cousins, glass metro tiles take on a life of their own. Throughout the day, evening and night they subtlety change tone and reflective qualities depending on the light conditions.
The tiles can be used as a feature in a high end build or become the feature of the room if desired.
The 8mm thickness allows for heat extremes so perfect for kitchen splash back, bathrooms and even swimming pools.
These tiles come loose for ease of fitting in a stacked or off set tile pattern dependent on individual taste.
Metro tiles are a timeless classic that look as good now as they did over 100 years ago when first designed for the London Underground and Paris Metro system. The Glass Metro Tiles add an extra dimension bouncing & reflecting the light in your room, they even subtly change in tone/colour throughout the day depending on the sun/light source. We think they bring a room alive!
A premium tile from the Alec Buchan range, the metro tiles are 8 mm thick. This allows installation as a kitchen splashback without any issues. Glass is super durable whilst easy to clean and maintain. All metro tiles are available in a glossy finish with the white tile also available in a frosted finish.
The white Glass Metro Tiles have a low lead content. This is important as the tiles are optically white (lower quality versions have a green hue).
The metro tiles are available in 0.5 m2 increments (min order 1 m2) so mixing and matching colours is easy, this also dramatically cuts down on unnecessary left over tiles.
2017 & 2018 Home Design & Decor Trends
Alec Buchan glass metro tiles are ideal for updating a current kitchen splashback or bathroom with out the expense or stress of a complete rip out. Should you be lucky enough to be completely remodeling your room here are the hot kitchen & bathroom trends for 2016 & 2017.
Kitchens – mixed materials are hot! Rather than the polished look mixing rustic & new along with glass, timber, concrete vintage rugs & copper handles.
Kitchens – Miss matched cabinet colours of if you are feeling super brave using two completely different styles of cabinets.
Kitchens – Coloured stainless steel appliances. Black Stainless Steel will be the most popular but expect to be offered a host of colours for your new cooker, fridge, extractor & microwave.
Bathrooms – Statement bathrooms, large statement mirrors are the trend. Why not mix and match the statement mirror with some light reflective Glass Metro Tiles.
