Herringbone Parquet: This Year’s Must-Have Layout

So you’re looking at tiling a wall or floor. There are several considerations to take into mind. The material, the colour, the design. Once you’ve got that sorted, you’ll need to choose a layout – the pattern in which your tiles will be fixed in place. There are several to choose from. Vertical, horizontal, straight columns, half and half. But for a layout that is completely on trend, and is appearing time and time again in some of the world’s most prestigious interior styling shows and magazines, you’ll want to go for the Herringbone pattern.

When used with brick-shaped tiles on a wall, the Herringbone layout creates a striking focal point, and breaks free from the traditional row-after-row of overlapping brick shapes. Below, a blend of our Country Cottage Metro Tiles is used…

Named after the symmetrical, sloping bones that run along a fish spine, Herringbone is 2016′s layout of choice. On a floor area, when using wood effect tiles, it gives you a luxurious, room-stealing parquet effect; typical of period manor houses. Below, our Natural Oak Wood Effect Tiles have be used to create this pattern.
