Why we love it!

Hexagon tiles look fantastic and add something different to kitchens and bathrooms… Instead of using square or rectangular tiles, we love being more creative and using alternative shapes such as Hexagon! These tiles are available in a wide variety of colors and patterns so you can create a truly unique look.

How to use it. 

Luckily, there are a wide variety of colors, textures and patterns to choose from to suit all of your tiling needs. From polished to matte finish, multi-colored mosaics to single color hexagon tiles there is something for every style of interior! You can use hexagon tiles in the kitchen, bathrooms, powder rooms, mud rooms and utility rooms and even some hallways and foyers!

Use hexagon tiles in kitchens to create a feature backsplash with a fun and creative mosaic.

In bathrooms you can use hexagon shapes tiles for the walls, floor and as a feature backsplash to the sink area. Use larger hexagon tiles for larger areas like flooring and smaller ones for areas like the backsplash.

What to watch for.

There are some considerations to take into account when thinking of using hexagon tiles in your home…

The overall finished product will hugely depend on who is installing the tiles. Hexagonal tiles are tricky to install for inexperienced DIY’ers unless you have patience, plenty of time and can focus on the details. If in doubt, always seek a professional tile installer to help! If you’re using hexagon shaped mosaics you may find this easier to install as they normally come with a mesh backing to keep them in place when installing. 

Depending on the finish, pattern and color of the tile it could go out of trend quicker than the shape of tile itself. Therefore it’s important to absolutely love the tile you’re using! That way changing trends won’t matter.

Ways to make this trend last in your home

Hexagon tiles can last many years – even a lifetime! – if chosen and installed correctly.

If you’re looking for a permanent tile for many years, opt for a neutral style and color. Alternatively – be bold and brave with a statement color and texture. Bold colors that have a polished finish on hexagon tiles make the biggest impact.
