Herringbone heroes

Friday 16 February 2018, Written by Nan Nawrocki


In the olden days there wasn’t much choice when it came to wall tiles. White or cream in colour and 152mm/6”square in shape were your only options! Now there are some many colours, textures, sizes and shapes to choose from. And it doesn’t stop there. With different shapes come different layouts, such as brick bond, vertical, offset, diagonal, and our particular favourite, herringbone. It works with both half tiles and looks especially good with the long brick, or ‘kitkat’ shape.

It may be a little more challenging to install, but it’s definitely worth it for the effect, as you can see from these gorgeous examples from our Core CollectionArtworks and Winchester Tile Company ranges.

Inspired enough to try one of these for your next project? For more inspiring photography and installations browse the rest of our website, Pinterest boards, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages.
