Period Palettes

Preserving the integrity of your historic period-style home is incredibly rewarding. However, restoration can, at times, feel overwhelming. We, at Heritage Tile, know that tile renovation not only includes choosing the right tile but it also includes choosing the right color of tile.  

Our Subway Ceramics collection of authentic subway tile provides the perfect color solution for your period style home, as this collection offers a vast array of color choices and glaze options called  “period palettes." These period palettes are conveniently located in our Subway Ceramics Design Guide and includes the Classic Subway Series which features white and black glazes that are inspired by the late 1890's, as well as translucent crackle glazes. The Bungalow Series offers satin glazes, the Cottage Series uniquely presents stained satin crackle glazes, the Atomic Series offers smooth satin glazes, while the Cosmopolitan Series offers gloss glazes. 

Okay, so that's a lot of period palettes. So, we invite you to check out the Subway Ceramics Design Guide to browse the color palettes and glaze options.
