From slim, elongated designs to a fuss-free subway style, brick tiles are a clean and classic choice for bathrooms and kitchens alike. Effortlessly modern, and undeniably timeless, brick tiles can be laid horizontally or vertically to suit the dimensions of your space and the look you’re hoping to achieve. For example, a vertical rectangular tile looks really effective when used in slender alcove spaces, such as behind a washbasin or on a shower wall.
You can also choose whether to stack or to stagger brick tiles, creating a very different visual effect. If in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a traditional staggered layout. Whether installing brick bathroom tiles in a period property or choosing rectangular designs for a new build, a staggered brick format will work in both classic and contemporary homes. A stacked brick tile may seem a little fresher, but it’s worth considering whether the linear, grid-like effect this creates will feel in keeping with your overall aesthetic.
If you love the look of a stacked tile, but want something a little softer, choose a brick tile with surface variation or deliberate imperfections to offset the graphic layout. Our Hoxton tiles tick both boxes with their subtle changes in tone and profile, highlighted by a thick and glossy glaze. For a matt brick tile, try Pastella, which features a chalky finish and a gently undulating surface. Tonal variation contributes to a handmade feel, while a palette of muted shades makes them a really approachable option if you’re considering coloured tiles.
For a modern matt brick tile that’s completely uniform, choose Oska: a slim, rectangular porcelain design that’s a great choice for brick floor tiles, as well as walls. We love to see Oska laid in a herringbone format, particularly when combined with a strong hue, such as Jungle Green or Navy. If you’re in search of a herringbone tile with a luxurious edge, our marble brick tiles could be just what you’re looking for. Choose from dusty, rose-toned pinks, swirling patterns in grey and violet, bold green tones or gleaming white. Stick to a single shade or combine an array of different marbles for a seriously striking brick-tile floor.
