As you probably know by now, geometric shapes are super trendy in interior design. Tiles are one of the examples where geometric designs are very successful. Specifically, hexagon tiles are one of the latest trends when it comes to geometric tiles. Whether you are doing a makeover or you a moving to a new house, hexagon tiles are an excellent way to make a statement. If you are wondering how you could use hexagon tiles, Tile Monkey are here to give you some ideas.

Fluidity For Walls and Floors

One of the possibilities you have when it comes to hexagon tiles is to use them on walls and floors. This works especially well for bathrooms. Hexagon tiles help to make the room look longer, so by using them on walls and floors you ensure continuity and fluidity in the design. As a result, if you do this in a small bathroom you will make it look larger. If you want to accentuate this further, you should go for light glossy tiles as they will help to bounce the light. Another possibility is to combine bold hexagon tiles with more neutrally coloured tiles for a stand out effect.

Sobriety

What about creating a focal point and therefore balancing sobriety and keeping it simple? You can do that by creating a feature wall made of hexagon tiles to create a distraction from the small size of your bathroom. Instead, you will focus all your attention on the beautiful tiles. This also will accentuate the colour you have chosen for this unique wall. This also helps keep a room simple because by creating the feature wall you don’t need to add much more to the bathroom. Why not try it in your kitchen too?

Combining Shapes

As we have previously mentioned, geometric tiles are a must. So a great idea is to mix hexagonal tiles with other shapes. See for example your bathroom wall tiles; what about using square tiles and then adding some hexagonal tiles? This add uniqueness and at the same time keeps it simple. You can also create patterns thanks to the combination, for example a zigzag shape. This has to be done with precaution though, as too much pattern will make the room look busy and chaotic.

Mix and Match of Materials

Why not try combining hexagonal tiles with wood? If done well, mixing different textures can make your place look stunning while also creating a statement. This concept is perfect if you like the rustic look. You can do it in the dining room, for example, by adding some hexagonal tiles on the floor, or though the incorporation of a backsplash in the kitchen. Combining textures like this can be a great way to create contrast between old and new, or vintage and contemporary.

 

So there you have it – some easy ways to use hexagon tiles and make your house look gorgeous!
