Diagonal tiling layouts can be very effective for both floor and wall tiling, as well as for contemporary and traditional properties. But this can be a plain and simple tiling layout, unless you make some subtle changes to add visual interest. So what should you consider when adding interest to diagonal tiling layouts? And how can this help to create a stunning, stylish room? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling professionals. And this is our guide to everything you should know about diagonal tiling layouts.
Considerations for adding interest to diagonal tiling layouts
Diagonal tiling can be stylish and attractive for any home, in any style. But you can add some character, interest and fun in a variety of ways. These include:
- Alternating tile colours- alternating the colour of the tiles used can be a good way to add interest to create a stunning and attractive tiling feature. Black and white alternating tiles can create a stunning checkerboard tiling feature for walls or floors, while using other tiling colours can help fit your design scheme.
- Adding tile texture- if you dont want to alternate colours, you could consider adding tile texture. Using textured square tiles for diagonal tiling, or alternating between a textured tile and a plain tile, can both be good options for creating a tiling feature with character.
- Using patterned tiles- diagonal tiling can also be improved by using patterned tiles. From floral patterns, to geometric, there are a range of patterned tiles that can be used to add character and style to any room. Using these patterned tiles at a diagonal angle, instead of simple straight lay, can be very effective.
- Using a contrasting grout colour- when you use diagonal tiling, even in plain white, the diagonal shape creates interest. So you can enhance this further by using a contrasting grout colour to accentuate the shape and layout.
