Hexagon Flower Tile Floor
Really I would have rather made the title something OMG SQUUUUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE my floor rocks, but I get frustrated when things aren't easy to google. :-)
Can you see my hex flowers on that floor? In pink and green?
And hard to do. Really hard to do.
Hard to source the products and even harder to lay the pattern and the floor.
I ended up using a totally random pattern. (Which might eventually drive David crazy, but it took hours to get even a random pattern.)
I tried like crazy to google up a floor like this when we started so here are the best tips I can give you:
I found the white hex tiles at a tile shop near the house. Dal tile DOES make them, but they were a little harder and more expensive to get.
Dal tile also makes colored hex tiles, but they refused to make them for me, even as a special order. They wouldn't give a reason to the dealer for their refusal.
We ended up having our awesome tub guy (Scott from The Tub Company ) refinish some of the white tiles in a custom pink and green color for us. Companies that specialize in refinishing/restoring tiles/bathrooms might be your only option for getting those colored hexes, so don't overlook them when trying to figure out what to do.
Expect to pay a lot for the labor. Tile like this is a dying art and guys who are used to more modern tiles are going to struggle with those tiles for a laundry list of reasons.
And with that I am off again. Today is a CrAZy day which will end with our meeting with the city tonight. Hopefully by tomorrow the work can start on my laundry room again.
