Tile hanging is a method of cladding a house that is centuries old, yet it remains popular today. In fact, vertical hanging tiles have seen something of a surge in popularity in recent years, edging their way into contemporary house design and dispelling the myth that they are the preserve of the traditional homes of the South East of England only. 

Tile hanging was often used to clad the upper storey of a building and combined with another house cladding material, such as render or brick, on the lower storey. That said, modern-day architects are finding new and interesting ways to add this material to the façades of buildings.
