    Sorry to ask, but can anybody identify this tile? I want to extend it along the worktop as a splashback but as the kitchen was put in before we moved in, I don't know what tiles they are. It was installed by wickes so I'm presuming they're fairly standard porcelain tiles used in their kitchen installations.

    They are (roughly) 6" wide by about 2" or 3" tall.

    I can't see any at wickes and there aren't any in Topps tiles or Homebase.

    I believe that they are known as 'Wavy Metro (or Subway) Brick Tiles'. But I would imagine that quite a few different companies produce them, so finding an exact match might be difficult.

    Thanks very much. I had nothing to go from for a name and the only ones I found were huge things four times the width I needed. Using the subway tile description I seem to be getting much closer results.
