When it comes to tiling your hallway, you need to consider the visual effect. After all, this is the first room that guests to your home will see, and this first impression will form the basis of their opinion. Hallway tiling can be striking and eye-catching, or subtle and understated, depending on your own preferences and the style of the rest of your home. One advantage to hallway tiling is that the hallway is often totally separate to the rest of the house, which means that you can use bolder colours and tiling choices. This means that hexagonal tiles, and a honeycomb layout, can be a fantastic option. And here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to using honeycomb tiling in the hallway.
What is honeycomb tiling?
Honeycomb tiling is simply the tiling layout or pattern that is created when you tile with hexagonal tiles. The tiles tessellate together perfectly, to form a honeycomb pattern. And you can even use an alternative grout colour to make the hexagonal tiling shape stand out and really pop.
Choosing a colour scheme for your honeycomb tiling is a good place to start, as different colours and effects will suit different home themes. For example, a patterned hexagonal tile would suit a traditional theme, but may well be out of place in a contemporary home. At the same time, monochrome tiling, using hexagonal tiles, can be effective in both contemporary and traditional homes.
Don’t be afraid of using deep, rich colours for your hallway tiling, as explained in our handy guide.
Floor or wall
While large format hexagonal tiles can be a fantastic option for hallway floor tiling, smaller hexagonal tiles can really stand out on hallway walls. However, while it is incredibly practical to use tiles for hallway flooring (just think about all the mud being traipsed into your home) it is not necessary to use tiles for hallway walls.
Stone or timber effect
In either a contemporary or a traditional home, neutral natural tiling can be a great benefit. Hexagonal tiles can also offer this effect, with stone or timber effect hexagonal tiles available.
