Small 1" or 2" hexagons were used as floor tile in homes for many years, especially before World War II. They were frequently white, sometimes with black accent tiles used to form patterns. Building lobbies and foyers also took advantage of the durability and design possibilities of these small tiles.
Now this versatile tile format has been updated with a variety of glaze finishes. Many inspirational designs can be found on websites like Pinterest. The tiles can be ordered as loose tiles or as sheets of tiles (about one square foot each) with mesh on the back for ease of installation.
Glazes for hex tiles can be made in glossy or satin finishes. The tiles are porcelain and are suitable for interior, exterior, and wet areas.
Small square porcelain tiles and penny rounds are also options.
These tile samples are only illustrations: many solid color glazes not pictured in this website are good options. We can do glossy or satin in a rainbow of color options: please inquire.
