Herringbone tiling with multiple colours

The herringbone tiling layout involves using rectangular tiles, like subway or metro tiles, and positioning these at a 45 degree angle. This creates a zig-zag style pattern that can be very visually effective in any space. But to emphasize this further, you could consider the colours you use. So what are the options for herringbone tiling with multiple colours? Well, there are several, including:

  • Using a contrasting grout colour- a different grout colour to that of the tiles themselves can be a great way to emphasize the layout, and make the zig-zag design stand out. For white tiles, black grout can be very effective, and vice-versa.
  • Using alternating colours- a herringbone layout can create stunning colour patterns when you alternate the tiling colour. This can be with each tile or with each row or column. Either way, you can create an unusual and visual striking tiling effect. For a subtle impact, you could choose tiles that are a different shade of the same colour, or you could instead opt for tiles with a bold visual contrast. Black and white tiles can be used to create a dramatic, and impressive, visual impact.
  • Using more than two colours- for a fun and quirky effect you could use multiple tiling colours. This can be more effective when only used in a small area of the space, like the splashback or a feature wall, as the effect can be quite bold and overpowering. In addition, this effect only suits a small range of interior design styles, and may not be suitable for all properties.
