Zigzag patterns proved popular again in this year’s KBDi Designer Awards program.

As you’ll see in the slideshow below, herringbone and chevron tile layouts added great interest and movement to some of the stunning kitchens and bathrooms lining up for prizes at next month’s Gala.

What’s the difference between chevron and herringbone?

Keen eyes will know not all zigzags are made the same. The chevron pattern forms a neat letter ‘v’, with the sharp point on repeat in walls and floors.

Herringbone, on the other hand, is a pattern formed when rectangular tiles are laid in a staggered zigzag pattern.
