If you want to redesign your bathroom floor, you should pay attention to the tile laying pattern in addition to color, pattern and size. About the overall impression of your bath determine primarily tiles and joint width.
For example, particularly narrow joints emphasize the format of the tiles, which creates a special visual appeal, especially with larger formats. Colored joints evoke impressive contrasts, which support the individual interior design.
The laying pattern of tiles characterizes the effect of wall and floor. Not only the format and the color, but also the laying direction of wall and floor tiles influences the room ambience. Tiles of different sizes can be laid in different patterns. Depending on the choice of laying pattern, different surface and spatial effects are created – and each other’s stylistic imprints.
Installation in joint cut: Ideal for large-format tiles to achieve a homogeneous surface effect; optimal effect with a tone-on-tone design of the joints.
Diagonal installation: conceals crooked walls and brings tension into clearly cut rooms; goes well with the Mediterranean style of living and the country house look.
Offset Bandage: Popular for landscape sizes of any size; stretches spaces towards the narrow edges.
Bohemian Association: suitable for combining different tile formats; creates lively-looking floors.
Herringbone laying: Exceptional laying pattern for slender bar formats; creates a classically representative impression of space.
Block Parquet – Clinker Chessboard: Classic clinker laying pattern; also suitable for larger formats where edges have the ratio 2: 1.
There are many laying patterns for flooring, but finding easy laving patterns for vinyl flooring is not that easy. If you are planning to install a new vinyl floor in the near future, then you should not miss our exciting selection of simple laying patterns. The easy-to-lay patterns are not only highly decorative.
With the right laying pattern and laying direction, you can easily influence the visual effects of your space. We hope you enjoy the planning and implementation of your new vinyl floor.
Simple laying patterns for vinyl flooring: 1. Ship’s floor
- Also called wild bandage;
- Velegemethode, the planks/planks/tiles are simply laid parallel to each other, whereby the joints are offset irregularly.
- This irregularity offers you two advantages: On the one hand, the “wild bandage” loosens up small spaces in particular. And on the other hand, this laying pattern forgives well and gladly minor irregularities. Perfect for all beginners of laying vinyl floors.
Easy laying pattern for vinyl floor: 2nd English Association
- The English association is one of the classics of simple laying patterns for vinyl floors.
- Although the vinyl planks/planks/tiles are laid parallel to each other here, but the offset corresponds exactly to half a plank.
- The English association forms a beautiful, clearly structured and timeless pattern.
- Depending on whether you lay the pattern parallel to the room length or room width, you achieve with the “English Association” an optical extension or widening of the room.
Easy laying pattern for vinyl floor: 3 rd oxford
- The only difference with the oxford pattern is that the vinyl floor in rows is offset by one third of the vinyl floor length.
- As a result, the oxford laying pattern also achieves a slightly room- loosening effect.
Simple laying pattern for vinyl floor: 4th wicker floor
- The modern wickerwork pattern looks most impressive with a basic pattern of two to four planks.
- To lay the woven floor, the plank packages are laid alternately horizontally and vertically. Here is the result of the typical wickerwork basic pattern, which only has to be demonstrated in the following.
- The wicker flee, is similar to the cube pattern, but the planking packages are pushed together in the wicker floor.
- However, the basic pattern packages in the wicker floor pushed together.
- Despite the clear structure, a wicker floor is room-clearing.
Easy laying pattern for vinyl floor: 5th cassette
- The cassette pattern leeks complicated at first glance, but is quite easy to lay the vinyl flee, planks/squares to squares.
- Begin the cassette pattern with a plank and place the next plank flush with the short end of the first plank at a 90 angle. If you now more the next and the next plank according to the same principle you get a square.
- For cassette samples, the boards/planks are laid to squares. Starting with a hallway, the next floorboard is laid flush with it at a 90 angle. The inner surfaces of the square are alternately filled with vertical and horizontal planks.
- The optically very decorative cassette laying pattern has a neural spatial effect.
Simple laying pattern for vinyl floor: 6th Parallel dressing
- For the simple and at the same time noble laying pattern of the parallel bandage, the vinyl planks/planks are laid parallel to each other at the same height.
- Tip: Use different woods to highlight the pattern.
- With the Parallel Bandage, you achieve an optical room extension or a room spread, if you lay the floorboards across or across the room.
Easy laying pattern for vinyl floor: 7th ladder
- In the laying pattern of the Leister, the parallel bandage is interrupted by two vertically laid rows of planks.
- With the “Leister” effect you an optical extension or widening, depend on whether the length or the width is moved to.
Easy laying pattern for vinyl floor: 8th dice
- The cube pattern is one of the classic patterns of laying and is also called chalkboard patterns or checkerboard patterns. Also known as a chalkboard pattern or mezzotint pattern.
- In the cube laying pattern several boards/planks are assembled into squares and laid vertically and horizontally.
- Loosens the room and visually enlarges it.
If rooms, such as bathrooms, look too narrow or “too short”, you can usually compensate for this with the right tile flooring. A very easy way to do this is to choose tiles of the same size for the wall and floor.
As a result, they form an optical unit that makes the actual proportions in the room visually more likely to fade into the background. The effect can be further enhanced by using calibrated tiles and minimizing the joint width of tiles for small spaces as much as possible.
If tiles for small rooms are laid horizontally on the wall, too narrow rooms become visibly wider, but if the wall tiles are laid horizontally, the room is optically “stretched up” and a too low ceiling height is compensated. If the side walls are not tiled, this effect can also be achieved by stroking them as darkly as possible and using bright tiles for small rooms.
With large-sized floor tiles: optically reduce the size of the rooms. A good way to achieve optically more compactness is to be able to use large-sized floor tiles. A too long length of a room can best be compensated by pulling it optically into the width. This is done in the same way as it is done with tiles for small rooms: through the laying of rectangular tiles, in this case on the floor of the room. If you move them lengthwise, the reverse effect is created.
While laying in the cross-band optically almost everywhere seems quite neutral (both on the wall and on the floor) can be optically quite sustainable increase with half or a third bandage spaces.
However, the largest possible tile formats should be used here, which still work reasonably harmoniously in the room. Low ceilings can always be increased with vertical joints. However, this is automatically the case anyway with the vertical installation of vertical tiles on the rear wall of the room, which has already been recommended above.
The color of the joints: just like the color of the tiles – also has a very clear effect on the optically perceived room proportions. Dark joints reduce space, while light joints tend to make rooms look bigger. However, this rule of thumb is not completely unrestricted. It must always be seen in relation to the tile structure, the tile format and the chosen joint width.
