When tiling a wall or floor space with rectangular tiles, you've immediately faced with a decision to make: which layout / pattern should I use? You can opt for a horizontal arrangement or a vertical one. You can introduce a brick-bond design (where the tiles overhang half-way along, like in a brick wall). You can even go for a linear formation, where the tiles are stacked in perfectly straight, aligned columns. But we see these tiling layouts every day. They are becoming dated. Allow us to introduce you to the latest trend, when it comes to tiling patterns: the Herringbone tiles layout.
The herringbone pattern consists of two rectangular tiles touching ends in a 'V' formation. Repeated again and again, it creates a zigzagging design. The word Herringbone refers to the spine of a fish, with dozens of V's aligned in a row. This layout is being used in all the swankiest establishments - designer bars, luxury hotels, celebrity homes. It's perfect for adding some charm and character to a tiling display and, best of all, it can be used on both wall and floor spaces.
Typically, when it comes to tiling a wall with a Herringbone Wall Tiles layout, metro tiles would be used. Our Country Cottage Metro Tiles are ideal for this, and allow you to create that sought after rustic farmhouse look in a kitchen or bathroom space. When it comes to tiling a floor space with the Herringbone Floor Tiles look, wood effect tiles are often used due to their elongated rectangular plank shape. For this, our Rustic Blue Wood Plank Tiles are ideal.
