Tile shapes that can transform your home


When choosing the right tiles for any space in your property, there are a number of considerations to take into account. One consideration that is often overlooked is the shape of the tiles themselves. While most tiles are rectangular or square, these are not the only two options available. And for contemporary or traditional properties alike, using tiles with an unusual shape can help create a stunning feature. So what are the tile shapes that can transform your home?

What are the different tile shapes that can transform your home?

There are a number of different tiling shapes that can have a dramatic and positive impact on any room, from the hallway to the kitchen or bathroom. These tiling shapes include:

  • Hexagonal tiles- hexagonal tiles combine together to create a honeycomb pattern. This unusual design is sure to draw the eye, and create a stunning visual feature in any space. To really emphasize the shape you could consider using an alternative or contrasting grout colour to provide an effective outline for the hexagonal shaped tiles.
  • Triangular tiles- triangular tiles are more unusual, yet these can be incredibly effective. Used more effectively for contemporary spaces, these tiles can add visual interest to any space, and create a more abstract tiling feature.
  • Circular tiles- these are generally not tiles with a circular shape, they are instead tiles that are patterned with small circles or combine together to create larger circular patterns. For either contemporary or traditional spaces, these tiles can have a dramatic visual effect, which is so unusual when compared to other tiling features.
