Different options for alternating black and white floor tiles effectively

Using alternating black and white floor tiles can be a powerful way to add style and visual interest to any space. However, to achieve this effectively there are a number of things you should consider. These include:

  • Choosing the right layout
  • Choosing the right size tiles

Choosing the right layout for alternating black and white floor tiles

When you consider using back and white floor tiles together you probably instantly think of the chessboard tiling layout. This involves laying square black and white tiles in a grid layout to create a chessboard effect. However this is not the only option and for your property you may need to think of something a little more unique. Other effective options can include:

  • Creating striped floor tiling- laying a full row of black and then a full row of white tiles can make a dramatic striped effect for your floor tiling.
  • Herringbone tiling layout- laying black and white floor tiles in a herringbone tiling layout can be a very unusual and effective option. While each tile colour may not be alternating due to the shape and unusual design of the herringbone layout the overall effect can be quite striking.
  • Honeycomb tiling layout– you could use black and white hexagonal floor tiles to create a striking honeycomb tiling layout.

Choosing the right size floor tiles for alternating black and white tiles

There are a range of different size floor tiles available from regular or standard size tiles to large format floor tiles. The size of the space available will determine which size floor tiles you should choose. But when choosing to alternate black and white floor tiling you are not limited to the standard or regular size tiles. Instead you can decide to choose larger or smaller tiles to create the effect that you are aiming to achieve.
