Pattern that melts

Hex tiles don’t always have to be simple and straightforward. Hexagonal mosaic tiles can be a little hard to find and also a bit more expensive than their regular counterparts, but they’re well worth the extra money you spend. It is best to choose tiles that are monochromatic and do not go beyond white and shades of gray. Since there are already many patterns, color can disturb the modern appeal of your kitchen and can also give it a confusing look. These patterned hexagonal tiles are perfect for modern, eclectic, shabby chic and industrial kitchens.
