I’ve turned my attention back to the flip home and now my focus is on the bathrooms, there are two in need of flooring and so I thought it an opportunity to add some hexagon tiles. We could have continued the vinyl plank flooring that exists in all the community spaces and bedrooms into the bathrooms but I thought it was better to switch things up and add a tile with some pattern.
Hexagon bathroom tiles have taken the design world by storm. Some might call it a trend but the shape is as old as time and the use of hexagon tiles dates back decades. I prefer to see hexagon floor tiles as a timeless choice and one with real staying power.
There are various ways to include this pattern on a floor, one that’s striking is the smaller shaped pieces laid down in a high contrast pattern.
There is also the option of creating little florets with different colors.
I love the subtle color difference in a stone look hexagon tile in both dark hues and paler neutrals with matching grout.
Using a white grout with a dark tile (or vice versa) is another option that makes a bolder pattern since the hexagon shape pop outs in contrast with the grout.
Of course you can’t go wrong with classic marble on a smaller scale.
A smaller shape but darker hue feels a bit more contemporary.

There are brands that make each hex tile with a border, these are beautiful if it’s a statement floor you’re going for.

Here’s another beautiful idea, mixing plain tiles with patterned tiles, it can be done in a random fashion or a symmetrical one.

The hexagon tile floor I found for my bathroom project is a larger scale elongated shape with a wood look finish, I’m headed to check it out in the store this week, hopefully it’s the right one. I’ll share more about the bathroom spaces soon!
