What are the advantages of honeycomb mosaic tiling?
There are a number of benefits to using a honeycomb mosaic tiling layout. This involves tessellating the hexagonal tiles together with no grout lines or gaps, to create a continuous tiling effect. The advantages of this include:
- Creating a stunning visual feature- using hexagonal tiles for mosaic style tiling can be a great way to add visual interest and to create a visual feature in any room, including kitchens and bathrooms. The unusual shape of the tiles will attract attention, and this can create a feature wall that really stands out.
- Flexible design- this type of mosaic tiling can be used in a range of different ways. For example, you could large format tiles to cover a larger space, and this would make for effective floor tiling. Alternatively, you could opt for smaller hexagonal tiles that can create an intricate and detailed design perfect for shower enclosures, and splash-back spaces in kitchens and bathrooms.
- Suits any style- honeycomb mosaic tiling can be a great option for traditional spaces as well as contemporary spaces. For traditional spaces, you could opt for a marble or patterned hexagonal tile to add more detail and suit the style of the space. While for contemporary spaces large format natural effect hexagonal tiles can be incredibly effective.
