Mosaic Monday: Hex Marks the Spot

September 26, 2016

Hexagonal tiles have been in use for home décor for many decades – it’s a classic element that can trigger feelings of nostalgia and comfort. They are practical, too, considering that the smaller tiles are less prone to cracking and chipping than larger-format tiles. 

But the tiles offered by MSI are not your grandma’s hex tiles. Although they can be incorporated to create a cozy vintage look, today’s tile shapes, colorways, and materials are just as much at home in a contemporary design. They’re made of natural stone, glass, and even mixtures of materials and textures. Even better, they are pre-meshed for a quick and easy installation. Check out these hex tile options, and prepare to be inspired for your next backsplash tile or flooring idea!
