Choosing the right tiles for your space can be difficult. From squares to hexagonal tiling, large format to small mosaics, there are a number of considerations to take into account. Chevron tiles are another, very effective option. But what are chevron tiles? And what are the different styles of chevron tile? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about the benefits of chevron tiling.
What are chevron tiles?
Chevron tiles are tiles that are actually parallelograms, instead of being plain rectangles. These are then arranged in the same format as herringbone tiling, but the different angle of the tiles creates a unique effect that can be incredibly striking. This type of tiling suits both contemporary and traditional spaces.
What are the different styles of chevron tile?
Chevron tiles are available in a range of different styles that can have a positive impact on the overall design and style of your space. These different styles include:
- Timber effect- chevron tiles are often used to mimic a hardwood floor, and as a result, you can purchase chevron tiles in a range of different timber effects and colours, including greys and browns.
- Plain colours- chevron tiles are available in plain gloss and matt finishes, in solid colours. Plain white may sound boring, but in a chevron tile, and layout, you could use these to create a stunning visual result.
- Patterned tiles- chevron tiles can be patterned with Victorian, floral, or geometric designs that suit the Y angle design and layout. These are most effective in smaller spaces, where the pattern will not be too overwhelming, but will instead draw and attract attention.
