Reasons to Fall in Love with Hexagon Tile Patterns

Whether You’re Restoring The 19th Century, Long-Ago Forgotten Home Or Building A Sleek And Modern Style Home, Hexagon Tiles Patterns Are A Natural Choice For Flooring Or Walls. This Classic Honeycomb Pattern Continues To Adorn Homes Since The 19th Century. And Because Of The Rising Trend For Hexagon Tile Patterns, We Expect To See It Around For Another Couple Of Centuries.

Why has this tile pattern survived the test of time?

First, hexagon tile patterns present clean lines. Commonly used in bathrooms or as hexagon tile backsplashes, the 6-sided tile offers a classic look. Embellish your home decor by installing these tiles as focal points, such as flooring in vintage-style bathrooms. Or the hex tile also serves well in transitional spaces that call for a contemporary style.

Next, we love hexagon tile patterns because they are easy to install. Gone are the days of plain square tiles. Just because you select a geometrically shaped tile for your home remodel doesn’t mean that the installation is complicated. Hexagon Saltillo floor tile patterns fit together like a puzzle. These tiles create a honeycomb pattern. This also makes the pattern a budget-friendly option compared to more complex multi-tile patterns.

There are no complicated cuts or mosaic tiles required. It’s a straight tile install. That said, make sure to factor in slightly more waste compared to square tile floor installations. We recommend a 20% overage for waste, cuts, and borders on any decorative shape. Why? It is more difficult to get more than one cut from a decorative-shaped tile versus square tiles. Also, we love hexagon tile patterns because there are options galore! I’ll focus on the genre of Mexican tile and stone.

Have you seen our hexagon Saltillo tiles? We have multiple size options, the most popular being 6×6, 8×8, and 12×12-inches.
