If you’re looking to add a new pattern to your home decor, look no further than hexagonal tile. Hexagonal tile has become more and more popular in the past few years, and with so many design options available, it’s no wonder why. MSI offers a variety of tile options, so you’re bound to find something that works for you. We especially love a hexagonal backsplash tile in the kitchen or bathroom, and there are so many reasons why!
First, hexagonal tile patterns are calm and soothing. They add interest without distracting the eye. A hexagonal tile backsplash in the kitchen can provide just a little pop of color or texture, without overwhelming the space. Hexagons are also a classic natural shape, making flawless appearances in the great outdoors. For example, we’ve all seen hexagonal shapes in beehives. Thanks to their efficient use of space and attractive shape, honeycombs are a great inspiration for hexagonal tile. There are also examples of hexagonal patterns in natural rock formations across the globe. Why not take nature’s example and add a hexagonal backsplash tile in your own home?
Hexagonal patterns are also timeless. They’ve been around for decades (if not longer!). You can find inspiration from your grandmother’s hexagonal quilt, floor plans from the 1940s, and many, many more historic design elements. Hexagonal backsplash tile rarely feels dated. Instead, it provides a new take on trends of the past, which means it can fit in with either traditional or contemporary designs. Depending on the material you choose, hexagonal tile can even complement a more natural or rustic design aesthetic.
Hexagonal tile can be made from a variety of materials, such as: glass, stone, or even mixtures of these for a more eclectic look. Select a variety of different stones, each with its own unique colors, flecks, specks, or swirls, for backsplash tile that’s truly unique and unlike any other. Likewise, choose one color scheme or blend a variety of colors for a unique look. The hexagonal pattern ties together every tile in your backsplash, so you don’t need to worry about creating an incongruent design. A variety of tile options made from different materials also means that you can select the price point and durability that best matches your own needs. And along with material options comes color options, so you can be sure to find a color scheme that goes well with your existing or future designs.
Once you’ve selected a color scheme and material, don’t be afraid to play with scale. Choose large tiles for a big, bold effect, or a smaller hexagonal pattern, which might work well for a larger area. Backsplash tiles are a small way to incorporate a brand new design element into your space, so don’t be afraid to go bold with an impactful design.
With so many options at your disposal, it’s hard to go wrong with hexagonal patterns for your new tile backsplash. Select from a wide array of colors, materials, and textures, and don’t forget to check out our other options: octagon, arabesque, basketweave, and more.
