Tiling any space in your home is a great way to add style and character. It can also be incredibly practical, with tiles providing effective waterproofing and a very durable surface. Choosing an effective tiling layout can have a big impact on the visual effect of the tiling itself, so it’s important to choose a layout option that matches your overall design theme. One of the most effective tiling layouts is the herringbone option. But what are the advantages of herringbone tiling layouts? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to why you should choose a herringbone tiling layout.
Advantages of herringbone tiling layouts
There are many advantages and benefits to this tiling layout, and these include:
- Suits any style- whether you are creating a traditional bathroom or a contemporary kitchen, the herringbone tiling layout can be a great choice. In a traditional space, this layout adds visual detail to your floors or walls, because of the unusual pattern. In a contemporary space, the shape of the tiles and the arrangement can make for a stylish and subtle tiling feature.
- Adds width to a space- if the space you are tiling is fairly narrow, the herringbone tiling layout can make it seem wider than it really is. This is because the tiles are laid diagonally, drawing the eye out to the furthest part of the room.
- Subtle or bold- a herringbone tiling layout can add subtle style to a room, creating a black canvas for the rest of the space. But it could also be used a bold tiling feature that will grab attention. It all depends on the colour and style of the tiles, as well as the colour of the grout. Use the same or similar colours for a subtle effect, or contrasting colours for a bold finish.
