Combine block colour and patterned hexagonal tiles to create unique and imaginative displays, and add a further dimension of interest on walls with three-dimensional designs. You can also use tiles to delineate different parts of your home (see Image 4), playing with colour and tone to create a transition between one area and another. Feeling inspired? Scroll through our gallery to see eight of our favourite hexagonal tiles.
