Hexagon Kitchen Tiles

Hexagon kitchen tiles are extremely popular among home owners. The history of the use of hexagon tiles in the kitchen has a long history, but it wasn’t until recently that this geometric-shaped tile could be seen only in exotic homes areas such as the market streets of Morocco. These were created using a mix of concrete and crushed materials, handmade, hand painted and individually fired. This process is still used to this day but is not always practical due to the high maintenance it requires. 

Modern hexagon kitchen tiles have come along way, thanks to the advances in tile technology. These modern hexagon kitchen tiles are now produced using either ceramic or porcelain, with the designs and/or colours printed directly on to the surface of the tile.
