Hex appeal with tiles

Hex appeal with tiles
September 21, 2017

Design-savvy homeowners are forever on the hunt for that next special touch that will turn heads and maybe even set trends. Hexagon or honeycomb tiles are super popular for decorating at home now because they are geometrical and geo décor is a hot trend this year. They can be used both in the bathroom and kitchen and many on both walls and floors.

The question is, how adventurous can you be? We believe that as long as your design is timeless and not too trendy, it’s probably within today’s boundaries. A popular idea currently is to decorate a bathroom in neutral colours and add a contrasting hex tile floor…or a hex splash back.

Hexagon or six-sided tile options come in a number of sizes, hues, textures and bold patterns. A feature wall, bathtub surround, entryway floor, or a kitchen backsplash of contemporary hexagonal tile makes a unique impact on your design, and will impress your guests.

It’s no secret that “big” is in style, so why not go with a large-format tile floor design that features small contrasting hexagonal floor tiles as the medium? You could even create a unique shape and make a hexagon tile “rug” as part of your floor tile design.

Alternatively, turn heads with walls and mix and match sizes, dimensions and shapes.
