A hexagon backsplash is unique because it creates an opening in the bathroom floor and sides. This is how a large hexagon forms, with a central hexagon having a wedge-shaped opening. This opening is not just for style, it can be used to allow water to circulate properly throughout the home.
The hexagon takes up approximately three times the area of a regular hexagon tile pattern. It is unique because it is a repeating pattern. This means there are only five unique tile patterns. There are seven floor tile patterns that take up a total of seven square feet of the bathroom.
To create this beautiful design, you will need the four hexagon tile patterns, three of them rectangular. These three tiles take up the entire width of the room as well as the depth. When you make the hexagon tile patterns use rectangular tiles, you will end up with hexagonal tile patterns.
There are two ways to go about creating a hexagon backsplash. One is to cut tiles to the appropriate size, and then measure the width of your bathtub from edge to edge, then cut one straight line down the center of the tile.
If you have not yet decided to create a hexagon backsplash then you can use a pencil to draw the outline of the pattern on the tile, using the material that you have available. Cut tiles to the appropriate size. You will be adding a border, using a pen or paint.
To create a hexagon backsplash, cut a piece of black vinyl fabric or some other fabric. I like to use fabric which has a floral design on it, but you can also use white, blue, green or any other color that you prefer. Make a hole in the middle of the fabric, or cut a hole in the middle of a rectangle to make a hole for the pencil to be drawn into.
Place the pencil on the fabric, center the pencil in the hole, and draw out a line of the hexagon pattern. Draw several lines at the same time, as you will want to turn your hexagon backsplash around before you are finished. If you are trying to draw something that is parallel to the border, it will be hard to do that with a pencil.
Once you have completed the pencil drawing of the hexagon pattern, add an extra layer of the fabric, as close to the edge of the hexagon pattern as possible. This will cover the pencil and make it easier to draw hexagon pattern lines. Draw hexagon pattern lines on the bottom of the fabric, along with the rest of the pattern lines.
Next, take the red and white colored trim out of the trim design that you just drew out. Now take the edge of the hexagon pattern, and make it a rectangle.
This pattern should be drawn on the fabric using a ruler pencil. Place the trim to be used around the edges of the pattern, using the ruler pencil to give it shape.
Cut the fabric to the appropriate size, and then place the fabric over the edges of the hexagon backsplash and secure it with some craft glue. Cut out all the pieces of the hexagon tiles, and then use them to surround the outline of the hexagon backsplash.
Using this pattern, you will be able to make a hexagon backsplash. If you find it difficult to draw the pattern out first, use a chalkboard on the floor to draw out the lines, and then cut out the lines with a tile cutter.
