What are the advantages of hexagonal floor tiles for the hallway?
There are a number of advantages and benefits to choosing hexagonal floor tiles for your hallways area. These advantages include:
- Creating a bold statement- hexagonal floor tiles are sure to attract attention and interest as soon as any guest steps foot inside your door. The unusual shape of these tiles is enough alone to create a unique and interesting honeycomb tiling layout, but this effect can be amplified by the type of tiles you choose. For example, using alternating black and white tiles can create an effective and contrasting visual effect. While using a contrasting grout colour can instead focus attention on the shape of the tiles themselves.
- Adding grip and creating friction- because of the unusual shape of hexagonal tiles, and the frequent grout lines, using these in the hallway can be a practical option. This is because when walking in from outside, your shoes can be wet and slippy, but with hexagonal tiles, you will increased grip and traction, helping you and your family stay safe. Of course, you should be sure to choose mat or textured hexagonal tiles, instead of glossy ones, for precisely this reason.
- Versatile design- hexagonal tiles in the hallway can be perfect for all manner of homes, from period properties and Victorian terraced homes, to new builds with contemporary design. Just be sure to choose the patterns and colours that will work well in the space you are creating.
