Bathroom & Kitchen Tiles in Halifax | Tile Patterns & Layouts

At Hot Tile Importers, we recognise that all steps in the tile design process hold equal importance. For example, visiting our tile shop in Halifax is just as important a step as our own impeccable installation work. These multiple steps all lead to the final tiling installation on your walls and floors, so we ensure we complete each one to the highest of standards before moving on to the next. Be it bathroom tiles, kitchen tiles or wall tiles and floor tiles in any other area of the house, we utilise a full range of patterns and layouts to find the ideal solution for our customers.


In this blog, we introduce the most popular tile patterns and layouts to inspire your own tiling project. If you find yourself struck with creativity, please don’t hesitate to call our Halifax tile shop on 01422 365 225 to discuss options for your own floor tiles, wall tiles and accessories.


Horizontal Straight Stack


Defined by straight, unbroken lines, this layout guides the eye from the top of your design to the bottom. We use this layout to showcase wall tiles, so it makes an ideal option for boldly printed tiles.


Laying bathroom tiles and kitchen tiles horizontally offers homeowners a contemporary look with undeniable roots in tradition.


Vertical Straight Stack


Tiles installed vertically provide a strong, firm and tall aesthetic. In fact, the ability to make rooms appear taller makes the vertical straight stack method a great choice for more petite rooms. When working with 3-D tiles from our tile shop, this installation method adds balance to your design.


Much like the horizontal stack, vertical options work wonders with bathroom tiles, offering a clean and fresh look.


Brick Patterns


Our tile shop team fit brick patterns in one of two layouts:

  1. 1/2 Offset – By simply offsetting stacked tiles by 50%, homeowners can benefit from a highly traditional, visually appealing look. The half offset pattern adds flair without detracting attention from the larger focal point.
  2. 1/3 Offset – Often referred to as the stair-step effect, this layout involves offsetting each tile by one third of its length. This pattern works best with tiles measuring 8” x 16” or larger.




By installing wall tiles and floor tiles at a 45-degree angle, we create a lively herringbone pattern. Our team can further intensify the already distinctive zigzag look by incorporating tiles of varying colour.




Often confused with the herringbone design, the chevron gives bathroom tiles, kitchen tiles and more a truly chic, stylish finish. Our tile shop team connects the ends of tiles cut at a specific angle for a highly distinctive finish.




The grid pattern remains the simplest way to lay out wall tiles and floor tiles. We create this timeless design by stacking square tiles in a grid pattern. This layout has huge versatility, with one popular use being an alternative to a rug at the entrance to homes in Halifax.




Also known as the diamond pattern, the diagonal layout has a clear similarity with the grid layout. However, by installing tiles at a 45-degree angle, we can make floors and walls appear wider. As a result, this pattern remains popular for kitchen tiles.




Our tile shop in Halifax stocks options in all manner of shapes and sizes. Geometric hexagonal tiles and mosaics create a bold aesthetic with just as timeless a quality as any other choice. With their ability to support an array of creations, hexagonal tiles also work just as well with contemporary layouts.
