Hexagonal or “hex” tiles were a trendy design in the 1940s, and they are making a comeback in modern flooring. Available in a wide variety of materials, textures, and colours, hexagon tiles allow you to customise your living space with a unique effect that catches the eye while providing a classy look to your home.
The alluring honeycomb shape of hexagon tiles makes an elegant statement in your home, impacting the feel and look of any room. Some hex tiles come with prints that allow you to create a mosaic effect on your flooring, and you have a wide variety of designs, from geometric patterns to contemporary shades of dark and light. Hex tiles allow you to get creative with your flooring design, producing an effect that lifts its visual characteristics.
It’s best to use hexagon tiling in areas of the home where you want to create a dramatic visual impact. Entrances, hallways, living rooms, and bedrooms can all benefit from the use of hexagon flooring.
The stylish design of hex tiles fit well with square tiles to form a linear shape with appealing focal features. Use contrasting colours to create a breathtaking visual effect. We like using a lighter colour hex tile, combined with a brighter or richer colour square tile for the best results.
For instance, choosing light grey hex tiles combined with navy blue squares creates the ideal look and feel for the bathroom or water closet. Bring your living room to life by using beige or tan hex tiles combined with clay-red squares to bring a warm and welcoming feel to the living room.
