Large Hexagon Tile

Posted by William Buyok on

With an increased appreciation of vintage and historical patterns or a twist toward contemporary design, it's no wonder large hexagon tile, both plain and patterned, are enjoying the spotlight. Add customization to the factor, and you have Avente Tile's Hexagonal Cement Tile collection! Steeped in a rich history of architectural, design and natural elements, the hexagon is a fundamental shape when it comes to building. The six-sided polygon, which can be found in honeycombs, crystals, snowflakes, and most importantly tile, creates a classic and distinguished look.


Beginning in late 2013, it was evident the hexagon was once again climbing in ranks as a desirable shape in the designs and patterns of tile. Continuing the trend today, hexagons play a more sophisticated role in terms of visual and tactile significance with increased offerings in cement, ceramic and porcelain. While the hexagonal shape is used in everything from small mosaic tiles to large format tiles, we love the the use of large hexagon tile as both a flooring and wall tile. You can can add patterns, textures and detail to further elevate the hexagon's allure as a design element.

Design trick: Use a patterned hexagon tile for rooms that aren't square or rectangular, are badly out of plumb or odd-shaped. The pattern and hexagon shape, when run to the edge of the room, hide all of the problems you'd have when using square or rectangular tile.

Further, the design flexibility of cement tiles means you get to pick the color for a unique design that speaks to you. Consider blue, green and aqua for a bathroom. Choose red, orange and yellow for a bright, warm patio or sunroom, or opt for a more neutral palette, such as the one shown above for a wall. Below you can see a rendering of the same Agatha pattern, customized with green and neutral colors based on the customer's design choices.
