Top 10 tiles for creating a brick bond pattern
If there is one style of tile pattern that never seems to go out of fashion, then it’s got to be the brick bond.
A style first used by bricklayers years ago to increase the overall stability of a wall, brick bond has become perennially popular in people’s homes, thanks in part to the fact that it works equally well on both floors and walls.
The great thing about brick bond is its versatility. You can mix things up a bit by adding a random different colour tile or a contrasting grout colour. Alternatively, you can try a staggered brick bond pattern (70:30 instead of the usual 50:50) or if you want to make your room feel a bit taller go for a vertical brick bond.
Whatever style of brick bond you decide to choose, don’t forget to order at least 10% more tiles to allow for breakages when attempting this or any other pattern at home.
