5 Best Mini Subway Tile Options

Let's just say...the hunt is on.  What seemed like a painstakingly simple design selection on a current kitchen renovation project has turned into something quite challenging!  I love the look of subway tile -- but I wanted to source something with a little bit more a New York flair for this project.  Subway tile with a twist...

Because I've spent a shameful amount of time sourcing the best mini subway tile, I'm passing along my favorites to spare you the search!  (Tip #1 - "mosaic subway tile" is a more fruitful google search term than mini subway tile...Disclaimer: I may earn a small commission for my endorsement, recommendation, testimonial, and/or link to any products or services from this website.)

I would define "mini subway tile" as any ceramic piece no larger than a 1"x2" or 1"x3".  A 2"x4" tile doesn't cut it for me -- I wanted something itty bitty!!

Subway goes retro with a beveled edge.  This can be a nice detail if you need a bit of dimension!
