When it comes to tile design within the home, angular, symmetrical and repetitive patterns seem to be having a moment again, with hexagons being a particular favourite – especially in the bathroom.

When geometric shaped tiles started having a resurgence in popularity a couple of years ago, they were only available in simple plain colours, but with increased demand, designers have now embraced more interesting patterns, finishes and textures.

So, in this blog post, we’ve decided to help you find your hex appeal and turn your bathroom into a hexagonal haven with tiles!

Choose an Impactful Tile Design

Tiles are ideal for creating a dramatic impact in spaces like the bathroom. You should consider the colour of the tile, but also think about how the colour will sit within the interior too. If you’re looking for something particularly distinctive, textured tiles are a great way to create a look that is both stylish yet characterful. Our exceptionally crafted Cliveden tiles deliver a look that is dimensional and minimalist, the neutral colourways add an understated finish whilst the surface texture adds dimension and shape giving off a look that is effortlessly on trend. Pair with beautiful traditional influences and hexagonal shaped accessories for a scheme that is abstract yet stylish.

Embrace Pattern with Hexagon Tiles

While plain hexagonal tiles can make an impact, patterned tiles are also a great way to make a real statement within your bathroom. There has been a huge revival for patterned tiles in recent years and we encourage you to get creative with your designs, as it’s a brilliant way to bring personality into your scheme and inject a bit of fun. The level of pattern can vary from bold random patterns, to more simple patterns that are better suited to more traditional, yet retro, interiors.

The trend for random hexagonal tile patterns, such as those in our Gemini Mosaics range, has grown over the last year or so. Particularly in bathrooms, it’s common to see tiles placed in seemingly random, asymmetrical designs that draw the eye towards them and allow the tiles to meander in all directions across the wall. However, it’s important to remember that a random look still needs careful planning, so be sure to sketch out your plans first and then lay your tiles out before you begin installing them properly.

Get Creative with Layout

In a similar vein, a hexagonal shaped tile is ideal for creating different designs on the walls of your bathroom. Just by combining a few colours and getting imaginative, you can create a wide variety of designs. For example, you can use a few tonal colours to create a beautiful shaded ombre effect, working from dark to light up the wall.

The visually interesting shape of a hexagon tile means that it looks best when placed next to more linear shaped products, such as metro brick tiles, to showcase it properly. This might be as simple as just laying your hexagon tile on the wall while having wood effect tiles on the floor, or perhaps using a hexagon tile on one feature wall of your bathroom with large format tiles on the other walls. Our Buxy range offers an attractive alternative to individual hexagon tiles, with easier fixing and less grout joints – meaning that it is easier for you to create the mix and match patterns of your dreams!

We hope our blog post has encouraged you to think about the different ways you can approach hexagonal tiles in your bathroom, from layout to colour. We’d love to know how you get on with your own designs!
