Using honeycomb tiling in the bathroom


Bathroom tiling is a fantastic way to add personality and character to what can be a bland space. While neutral tiling might be a stylish and timeless bathroom design choice, why not add a twist with an interesting tiling layout? Honeycomb tiling is the perfect way to add interest to your bathroom, no matter how much space is available. In fact, here at Tiles 2 Go, it is one of our favourite tiling layouts. As a result, we have produced this guide to using honeycomb tiling in the bathroom.

What is honeycomb tiling?

Honeycomb tiling is simply the name given to tessellated hexagonal tiles. The hexagonal tiles fit together in the perfect way to create a honeycomb pattern. This can be effective throughout the bathroom, from the shower enclosure to the floor. Especially as hexagonal tiles can be purchased in a range of colours and textures. Some even mirror stone effect tiles. This means that your bathroom can still be neutral and natural, while also making more of a statement.

Using honeycomb tiling in the bathroom

There are several ways to make good use of honeycomb tiling throughout the bathroom space. This includes:

  • Floor tiling- large format hexagonal tiles are incredibly popular as part of the contemporary design. They also make a good feature, and can help your bathroom appear wider and larger than it really is, because of the optical illusion.
  • Shower enclosure- smaller hexagonal tiles can be used in the shower enclosure to great effect. Choose neutral shades and allow the honeycomb design to be subtle, or use a single colour tiles, with a contrasting grout colour, to make a bold statement. Either way, your shower enclosure will look incredible.
  • Splashback zones- honeycomb tiling can also be used to create a stylish and attractive splashback zone. If you really want to make a feature of this piece, simply choose a colour that will stand out, or again, use contrasting grout to pick out the tile shape.
