Hexagon means hexagonal (six-sided), although these tiles are often called beehive or honeycomb because they resemble the shapes found in beehives. Hexagon tiles are ideal for brightening up a kitchen wall with a natural look, but they also blend seamlessly with a Scandinavian or modern interior. By combining the honeycomb tiles with a different coloured grout, a unique and striking wall or floor can be created.
These tiles are increasingly used in bathrooms and toilets. They are ideal for coffee hangouts and restaurants as well. The Arrow series of elongated hexagonal tiles offers a lovely variation and, of course, Arrow tiles are available from ICA in no fewer than 14 different colours.
The possibilities with hexagon tiles are endless and the Heritage, Apinni, Bibulca, the Twist and Kromatica series all feature a honeycomb shape. The tiles are available in many sizes, finishes and colours.
Black or white tiles are the most common, but they come in soft pastel colours too. Or how about tiles with a marble look, mosaics or a beautiful vintage appearance? Mini-hexagons, also known as hexagon mosaic, are often used for effect in niche designs or in bathrooms. A modern industrial kitchen floor can also be created with a walkway using hexagon tiles.
In principle, honeycomb tiles can be laid just one way by placing the sides against each other. But maximum effect can be achieved by combining a light tile with a darker grout. Integrating black, white and grey hexagon tiles is very popular and ICA has a wide range of sizes and colours in stock.
