The brick bond tiling layout is a tiling layout that involves using rectangular tiles or subway tiles with a height that is at least half the size of the width. To create this tiling layout, you need to lay one row of tiles in a straight lay layout, and lay the next row at a 50% offset. This means that when laying horizontally, the centre of the tile above, will be positioned directly over the join between the two lower tiles, similar to a brick wall.
