When choosing a design and layout for your new tiles, it’s important to achieve the right result. But for many homeowners and property developers, achieving tiling perfection can be a real challenge. So what are the most common tiling layout mistakes? And how can you avoid these?

What are the most common tiling layout mistakes?

So, what are the biggest mistakes when choosing and implementing a tiling layout? Well, there are several, including:

  • the style of the room
  • the size of the room

Tiling layouts and room style

So, what is the relationship between tiling layout and room style? Well, put simply, different tiling layouts are related to different decorative styles. Some tiling layouts are much more suited to specific styles than others. For example, hexagonal tiling is a stunning addition to contemporary spaces, but this would look out of place in a rustic kitchen or traditional bathroom. The style of the room itself is something you should consider before you tile the space, to ensure you achieve the best results.

Tiling layouts and the size of the room

Different rooms of different sizes are better suited to different tiling layouts. For example, a large room, tiled in tiny mosaic tiles would not only take forever to complete, but the effect of the tiles would be lost in such a big space. Choose a tiling layout that matches the size of the room, and contributes to a stunning effect. Diagonal tiling for example can be a great addition to a small kitchen, as it can give the illusion of more space.
