Hexagon Mosaics - Retro to Traditional

Have you ever stepped into a bathroom of an older home and felt that something was not quite right? Perhaps it was an older home. The fixtures seem historically accurate. The wall color is spot on, but the flooring looks like an afterthought. Or worse, like it's straight from a Brady Bunch rerun, even though the house is a 1930's bungalow.

Choosing tile for an older home requires some thinking about the look you are trying to achieve. Do you want modern? Or maybe you prefer a look that preserves your home’s original style? Or, perhaps, a look that’s neutral enough to be timeless, no matter which decorating direction you take?

What Hexagon Tile Pattern Works for Your Home?

If you want a style that will work with almost any décor, consider a tile with a geometric pattern. Once bathrooms began being installed in homes, the simple hexagon tile began making its appearance on floors throughout America. Not long after tile makers began making pre-mounted sheets of mosaic tile, they discovered that they could create beautiful rug-like patterns with rosettes and borders by replacing a few white tiles with colored ones.

Ever since, multi-colored hexagon mosaic tile has been very popular because it works as well in a historic bungalow as in a chic urban loft.  Our Luxe Black & White Hexagon tile, for instance, creates the perfect contrast for a bathroom floor or kitchen backsplash.

The same tile pattern in a different color, however, gives your room a very different feel. The Luxe Black Hexagon paired with a black leather sofa gives a masculine vibe to a family room.

This same pattern in a different material and color can be right at home in a rustic, old-world décor if either light or dark Travertine Hexagon Honed Mesh is chosen.

Other options in natural stone are Bianco Carrara and Calacatta Gold. Both white marbles, they include a range of other tones from gray to gold.

Hexagon tile is so versatile and timeless. It’s no wonder that so many homeowners choose it!
