Pattern Tile Perfection

Many of us find comfort in a solid tile backsplash or flooring but why not break the mold and go for a pattern? The results can be absolutely stunning.

If you plan to add some drama with a pattern tile, it should be the first thing you choose for your space. That tile will now become the lead for your space and you will make all of your design decisions based on your selection. Pattern tile is great because it adds visual interest and dimension to your space. You can use it to highlight a bathroom floor, it can be the focal for a great shower or fireplace, or you can even use it for a stunning kitchen backsplash. The possibilities are endless once you find an amazing pattern in the perfect color.

What the Hex?

Tile shopping can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to picking out accent tile or decorative tile for backsplashes. There are so many shapes and colors to choose from. One of my fav's is the Carrera marble hexagon.

Hexagon tile is a classic shape and comes in a variety of sizes. They are usually sold on 12 x 12 sheets. One pro tip I will share with you is to have your tile installer seal the hex's before grouting. The reason why is because marble is very porous and you don't want the color of the grout to penetrate into the marble. After grouting, you will need to seal it a second time. Whether it's a backsplash, a focal wall, on the floor or around a fireplace surround, definitely put the hexagon on your list. It has amazing colors and will help add a great look to any space.
