What are the effective tiling layouts for stone effect floor tiles?
Stone effect floor tiles can be a visually appealing and stylish addition to any room in the home. From the hallway, to the kitchen and bathroom, and both floor tiling and wall tiling, stone effect tiles are versatile and can suit both traditional and contemporary properties. But what kind of tiling layouts should you consider for your stone effect floor tiles? Well, there are several, including:
- Grid layout- the grid tiling layout simply involves laying square shaped tiles in a grid layout. This is perfect for floor tiling, as the grout lines can help add friction, and the visual effect can be the same as real limestone flag stones. For an alternative effect, try a diagonal pattern instead, which is simply a grid layout, but with square tiles on a 45 degree angle.
- Brick layout- the brick tiling layout involves using rectangular or square stone tiles, and laying the centre of one tile over the join between the two tiles below, in a brick effect. You can also try a 3/4 brick layout, which simply involves moving the overlap to one side, as a 75:25 divide, instead of a 50:50.
- Modular- modular tiling can be incredibly visually effective, and involves using stone effect tiles of different sizes, to tessellate together in modular pattern. This can be very effective for rooms where a natural stone effect is required.
