What is diagonal tiling?

If you are looking for a straightforward tiling layout that adds a bit more personality than the straight-lay pattern, diagonal tiling is perfect for you. Using square tiles, placed at a 45 degree angle, this pattern is also known ad the diamond pattern. It is incredible effective for both wall and floor options.

Diagonal tiling for the floor

Not only does diagonal floor tiling add subtle character, without being over the top, it is also incredibly practical. Diagonal tiling can make a room seem wider than it really is, by drawing the attention to the widest part of the tiles, and then to the diagonal grout lines. As a result, it is perfect for floor tiling in shower enclosures, hallways and vestibules, and any narrow rooms.

Diagonal tiling for the walls

At the same time, diagonal wall tiling can be perfect. It is subtle and understated which means it can be used effectively with other tiling patterns, without making the room look too busy.

Contemporary diagonal tiling

For a contemporary twist to your diagonal tiling, why not consider using stone or timber effect tiles in this tiling pattern. This will suit a contemporary kitchen or bathroom, with an emphasis on the neutral and the natural. As a result, your contemporary room will really stand out.
