Hexagon-shaped tiles, or hex tiles, have been an interior design favorite for more than a century. In the early 1900s, one-inch hex tiles were the go-to flooring choice for many bathrooms across America. Today, modern twists on the old classic – such as larger formats, creative applications, and limitless colors and patterns – have expanded the use of hex tiles into kitchens, laundry rooms, and more.
Check out the following HighCraft projects that are loaded with hex appeal.
Let’s start with an oldie, but a goodie – black and white hex tile flooring.
These one-inch mosaic tiles, newly installed in a retro rosette flower pattern, look original to the bathroom and authentic to this 1920s bungalow. Explore the entire Craftsman renovation HERE.

Mod hex tiles, installed in a random pattern, make a statement in this laundry room …
… as well as the nearby bathroom. Yet the overall neutral palette of the tile allows the red vanity to really pop.

Here’s an elongated version of the classic six-sided hexagon.
These hex tile pickets, capped with smaller rhomboid tiles in a chevron pattern, create a striking accent wall behind the range hood. Explore the full project in “Colorado Kitchen Remodel.”
Technically, these are rhombus tiles that form hexagons, but they’re too fun not to share.
The gray grout provides just enough definition to give the 3-D illusion of stacked cubes. Explore the full remodeling project HERE.
GOOD THINGS COME IN THREEs
In addition to the bold black flooring in the private commode, we installed two more styles of hex tiles in this master bathroom remodel.
One-inch black hex tiles cover the shower pan …
… and the showerhead wall (to the left of the niche) is a combination of hex and square tiles in a geometric pattern. See this project and more in our bathrooms photo gallery.
THRILLS AND SPILLS
We appreciate the craftsmanship of this creative install, where the mosaic hex tiles intentionally “spill out” from the shower across the master bathroom floor. Explore the entire kitchen and bathroom remodeling project HERE.
