Hexagon Tiles

 

Hexagon tiles have been present in design for hundreds of years. Traditionally, hex tiles were used in bathrooms and were usually in patterns of white with black accents. Small 1” wide black and white hexagon tiles in flower patterns have been seen on bathroom floors a very long time. But lately, hexagon tile has increased in popularity and they're not just for flooring anymore. So let’s look at some awesome uses for hex tiles!

  Hexagon tiles have made a HUGE impact on backsplash design and if you’re looking to add some texture and life to a neutral kitchen, hex tiles are up for the task! Use a solid colour for the tile and a different colour grout – it creates a beautiful look with lots of contrast.

  There is no rule in design that says you can’t mix & match tile in a space. Use a combination of tiles in different shapes and sizes to go with your hex tiles – rectangles, squares, etc!
