Some design elements are truly trendy. They arrive, they make a scene and then they float away. Sometimes, however, a trend transforms into a classic staple. We’ve seen honeycomb or hexagon patterns in everything for chicken wire to chic shelving and for good reason. Large or small, this graphic arrangement brings a sense of stability, order and high design to any space. Here are a few ways you might think about bringing that honeycomb home:
Tile it On
I have some reservations about tile countertops – mostly because the square tiles set a very commanding tone in a smaller kitchen space. This gorgeous hexagon counter, on the other hand, is fresh, interesting and traditional at the same time. I love the green-greg tones, too.
A Splash of Honey
Hexagons for the modern age! This stainless steel backsplash would look so much harsher if it were done using square or even rectangular tiles. The hexagon shape used at this scale brings to mind a feeling of efficiency and order, but will also allow any pop of color you choose to steal the show. It’s as hardworking as any worker bee that might have made it.
