What are the advantages of herringbone tiling layouts in the bathroom?
There are a wide range of benefits and advantages to choosing the herringbone tiling layout for your bathroom space. These advantages include:
- Timeless design- the herringbone pattern is created by laying rectangular tiles on an angle to create a zig-zag effect. This has long been popular and it remains just as effective today, as when it was first used. This gives this particular tiling layout a classic and timeless charm that can complement and create a contemporary effect, or a traditional one, depending on the colour, style, texture, and size of the tiles, as well as the rest of the interior design. As a result, when you want to transform your bathroom, you may not even need to change the tiles to do so.
- Versatile design- the reason why this tiling layout is timeless and suitable for both contemporary and traditional spaces is the versatile nature of the design. For example, for a more contemporary feature you could opt for a contrasting grout colour to allow the shape of the tiles to really stand out.
- Visually appealing- the herringbone tiling layout is incredibly visually appealing and draws attention wherever this is used. Whether you apply this tiling layout to the bathroom floor, walls or only in specific areas like the splashback or shower zone, you can be sure to create a visual statement and attract attention.
- Easier to clean- a more practical benefit of this tiling layout is that the tiles will be easier to clean. Because of the angle of the rectangular tiles, dirt and grime are less likely to get trapped in the corners and crevices of the tiles. This makes the herringbone tiling layout a great option for high-traffic areas of the bathroom, such as the floor.
