Brick bond tiling for shower enclosures


Choosing the right tiles or tile layout can be a real challenge. But the brick bond tiling layout is one that is becoming increasingly popular. This involves laying tiles in a “brickwork” type pattern, with the centre of the tile on the row above, sitting between the join  of the two tiles below. But could this suit your shower enclosure?

Important considerations for brick bond tiling for shower enclosures

If you want to use the brick bond tiling layout for your shower enclosure, there are a number of things to consider. These include:

  • The colour of the tiles- if you want your shower enclosure to stand out from the rest of the bathroom space, you might opt to use a contrasting grout colour for your brick bond tiles. This will make your shower a key visual feature within your bathroom. Alternatively, you might opt to use alternating tile colours for the brick bond rows, or just in general. This is a great option for adding character to contemporary bathrooms.
  • The grout golour- the colour you use for grouting between tiles can become a key design feature, if you choose a contrasting colour. This can accentuate the shape and layout of the tiles, and attract attention. But for a more subtle effect, you should consider fine grout lines of the same colour. This can even help create the impression of continuous but textured tiling.
  • The shape of the tiles- brick bond tiling layouts have typically been used with rectangular or subway tiles. But this isn’t the only option. In fact, a brick bond tiling layout can be created effectively with square tiles, and this can even create a more interesting visual effect.
