How can I use Hexagon tiles?

Hexagon tiles can be used in a multitude of ways with a multitude of products. You can create this classical pattern with flooring tile as well as walls; make them large scale or small – the choice is ultimately up to your own design aesthetic.

Hexagon tile applications

When it comes to floor application, a smaller hexagon shape is what has been traditionally used in the past. Porcelanosa’s new, and innovative hexagon styles are more suitable for wall application and are available in a variety of sizes, shapes and textures. If you’re feeling bold, you can try installing hexagon tiles throughout your room. If you want to start small, you can use them on an accent wall or a backsplash for an unexpected splash of personality. Most of Porcelanosa’s tiles that feature hexagons consist of a full tile that is made up of a few rows of these repeating geometric shapes. However, some of Porcelanosa’s newest hexagon tiles, including the Faces and Amsterdam collections, are available in individual pieces that can allow you to freely tessellate your area.
