Herringbone tile backsplash – Named after the complex bone structure of herring, Herringbone is a classic model that has reached all aspects of design. Fishbone samples are often used in interior design and can be found in almost every design element – our favourite carpet, pillowcases, wooden floors, curtains and tiles. Whether you are working on a bathroom floor or a kitchen backsplash, fishbone tiles add timeless character to any design.
If you are a sucker for classic, herringbone tile backsplash in a simple white brick colour and a fine white plaster line is your best bet. Although this look is often seen in traditional kitchens, it works as well in the modern and modern design. Choose 2 x 4 or 3 x classic sizes for traditional look. Or try a 2 x 8 size for a model of bones showing its wild side.
For a more modern look go for a slightly cold neutral, such as a light grey. This colour tone works well with any design style, however, we think it looks best in modern kitchens. The herringbone tile backsplash below selects a matte grey in a sleek 2 x 6 size. Combined with fresh white cabinets and stainless steel details, space feels clean and modern with a moderate amount of texture, size and personality.
