Hexagon Pattern in Tile and Stone
The honeycomb pattern, as known as the hexagon pattern, in tile and stone is a powerful trend. In fact, honeycomb tiles are everywhere in the world of design. The innate versatility of the shape makes it a wonderful tool. Wallpaper patterns, shelving, light fixtures, cabinets, rugs, pillows, fabrics, graphics, and more are all strutting the honeycomb look.
Further validation of this trend comes from the very interesting bloggers at Vianza. They tell us that we should look for this shape to power on. To illustrate this, they comment that “the honeycomb shape, typically a hexagon form duplicated in a pattern, is one of nature’s strongest structural forms and has been an important design element for humans for as long as we’ve known bees. But what’s exciting about honeycombs this year is that they are often used purely decoratively, and in neutral shades, to create a visual pocket of negative space that draws the eye to the ‘hole’ rather than to the structure. And in this way, you may actually miss the structural element of the honeycomb for noticing the space between”.
What is the Hexagon Pattern?
A hexagon is a six-sided object or shape in two dimensions with six internal angles. The hexagon tile pattern is the epitome of timeless elegance… Reminiscent of honeycombs in nature, this symmetrical arrangement boasts visual harmony and versatility.

Whether classic monochromes or vibrant hues, the hexagon pattern offers an opportunity to redefine spaces with its unique, captivating allure.

In terms of ceramic tile and stone hexagons, this shape is typically placed on a net or backing, as you can see above from our Granada Blend Mosaics. These honeycomb mosaic tiles are then fitted together in the installation to create a seamless visual.

Hexagon Tile Pattern Design Ideas
Hexagon Tile in Bathroom
One of the challenges that planning a bathroom in tile and stone poses is scale. The typical American bathroom floor plan amounts to around 40-50 square feet. Even contemporary primary baths are only between 150-200. Now subtract tubs, toilets, and cabinetry from that and you can see that there is not a lot of open area for a tile layout. While the backsplashes and walls add to the total to be tiled, the point is that smaller shapes are typically easier to work with in these spaces. Also, hexagon mosaic tiles will provide a relatively non-slip surface for wet areas.
Hexagon Tile in Kitchen
A kitchen is a busy place. Busy in terms of human activity, and busy in terms of equipment and technology. The geometry of the honeycomb is inherently visually active, or busy. One person may see busy, while another sees a pattern. We also well know that pattern is one of the fundamental building blocks of design. Honeycomb ceramic tiles in the honeycomb pattern offer the kitchen space a visually arresting hard surface that is perfect for both floors and the kitchen backsplash tiles.
Hexagon Tile in Shower
Hexagon tiles, in their mosaic form, are placed on sheets or netting for ease of installation. This creates a certain amount of space between pieces that are typically filled with cementitious grout. This grout helps to raise general slip resistance and makes the material perfect for wet areas like shower floor tiles.
