What is a hog tile?

Today, almost any elongated tile (like a brick) and, most often, with beveled edges, are called that, although the latter may not be the case. The name of the tile “hog” arose because of the peculiarity of the production: earlier, on the side of the tile, after leaving the conveyor, there were two indentations that looked like a pig's nose. Now these recesses are no longer there, but the name remains. By the way, exactly the same tile was used in the middle of the twentieth century for the design of the Paris metro.

Traditionally, the hog tile is one-color, although designers, of course, have long developed both multi-color and patterned models. Its neutral form allows you to decorate a room in monochrome or to combine different colors - from a contrasting combination of black and white, to a playful yellow-gray or passionate red-black. Not to mention the combination of different colors and tiles of different sizes, so that there is a feeling of a wall in the style of patchwork.

In the photo below, anthracite stitches seem to "flow" into the ceiling and are a kind of transition from white walls to a dark gray ceiling.

In addition, there is always a choice between matte and glossy surfaces. And the matte tile is more suitable for dry spaces, because on the matte surface there are too well visible traces of lime from dried water and other contaminants. The gloss is also much easier to clean, so the glossy “hog” tile is well suited for decorating an apron in the kitchen, facing the bathroom in the shower or bath area.

If you don’t like black color, then you should consider a version of gray tile, which, firstly, looks very stylish, and secondly, it can be easily combined with a whole palette of colors. With gray tiles on the walls, you can choose any color for furniture and accessories.
