Advances in manufacturing techniques allow us to create limitless new tile designs, including twists on long-standing favorites. Hexagon tile has been a popular choice for decades and continues to lend a playful look to a variety of applications, both with traditional and contemporary approaches.
In honor of World Honey Bee Day, here are some of our favorite hexagon (or should we say honeycomb?) tile designs.
White Hexagon Mosaic Tile
White hexagon mosaic tile offers a vintage feel that never goes out of style. While the monochromatic color makes any space look bright and clean, the playful pattern keeps the design interesting and fun.
Keep in mind that mosaic tile may look overwhelming on large surfaces, and is best used for backsplashes or smaller floor or wall areas.
Black Hexagon Tile With White Grout
Reverse the most classic hexagon tile design for a modern and sleek look: black hexagon tile with white grout. We can’t get enough of this new trend, which is an easy option to add glamor to any space.
Staggered Hexagon Tile Transitions
Staggered tile designs — designs that end along the tiles’ natural shape rather than in a straight line — are currently trending, and no tile shape suits this look better than hexagons. The unfinished feel of staggered hexagon tile adds unique flair to any application, whether you’re transitioning from tile to the wall for a backsplash or from one tile color to another for flooring.
Picket Fence Tile
Picket fence tile is a contemporary adaptation of the classic hexagon shape, making it thinner and longer. If you want something more unique than subway tile, picket fence tile adds hexagon charm for a classic-but-modern style.
Lay your picket fence tile horizontally if you want to visually widen the space, and vertically if you want to elongate the space or draw the eye upward.
Patterned Hexagon Tile
To maximize your creative potential, patterned hexagon tile can be as subtle as the monochromatic gray tiles or as whimsical as the multicolored pattern shown above.
