Tile Masterclass #3

From our experience at Creative, it is safe to say that most people are familiar with the ordinary square and rectangular tiles that are used in most spaces, but many are not aware of the myriad of shapes and sizes that exists. This week our focus will be on shapes, sizes, and textures of tiles.

The shapes that we will be exploring are often used for both decorative and functional installations.

Hexagons have become a new favorite for elaborate designs and even simple installations with a touch of modern flair. This tile is textured. Can you see the indentations going around its surface?

Stretched hexagon tiles are also a favorite as they create such interesting patterns when used as a mosaic or subway tile.
