white bathroom with hexagon tile

Chelius House of Design

The six-sided hexagon is one of our favorite design shapes and it’s been a mainstay in homes for well over a century. It saw its popularity skyrocket in the 1920s, and it’s continued to pop in and out of design trends ever since.

And for good reason; as designer Nina Hendrick of Nina Hendrick Home explains, "Hexagon tiles add a unique shape, visual interest, and vintage flair to the space.”

Plus, hexagon tile comes in all sizes, colors, and styles, so there’s sure to be one that’s right for your space—as long as you consider the scale of the tile and your room. Hendrick explains, “Small hexagon tiles can be busy and overwhelming in a large bathroom, but may be perfect for a shower floor or small powder bath." Try contrasting grout for a vintage-inspired look or something more monochromatic in a sleek, modern space.

Looking for inspiration across hexagon tile’s many faces? Here are 36 bathrooms with hexagon tile that show this timeless look isn’t going anywhere.
