Historic ceramic tiles are a common flooring material and wall covering in many different kinds of small, as well as large, private and public structures throughout the United States. Whether plain, or decoratively patterned, traditional ceramic tiles are important in defining the character of historic buildings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize how “subway tile” refers to a sophisticated and standardized system of pre-war tile work that defined bathroom and kitchen design for a 40-year period in American construction.
  • List the key factors in tile’s evolution over a 40-year time span in American construction.
  • Apply historic preservation standards to tile restoration work
  • Use computer aided design software for both historic preservation and new construction projects involving tile.
