Dear Annee,

Prices for (and quality of) glass subway tiles, which are popular now in bathrooms and kitchens, seem to vary widely.

Jill (from AT NY) says: “I actually bought white ones for the bathroom at Home Depot for $1.20/sq. ft. But higher quality tiles are available online. They are featured in an early Inside Out house tour, Amy’s Micro-Palace, and Amy says where she got them.”

Home Depot does not sell their tiles online, but here are two places that do:

• Amy’s source, SubwayTile, sells them in 5 sq.ft bundles, at $10/sq.ft.
Mosaic Tile sells them for $22.95/sq. ft.

We’ll be curious to hear what you decide to go with and how you like them.
