I’m excited to be guest posting again at Remodelaholic! Thanks to Cassity for having me! I’m Kim, half of NewlyWoodwards.  My husband recommended that I call this post Hexagon tile for dummies. 

Installing Hexagon Tile for Beginners. Here are the steps we took to get the flooring down.


After installed cement board on top of the sub floor, the first step was to lay out the 2ft x 1ft sheets of tile and make any cuts to fit.

A square is essential, in our opinion. If none of your walls are perfectly square, use a square to draw a perpendicular line from the wall you want to begin the tile on.



Maybe you will be able to find spacers that are made for hexagon tile. If you are like us, you won’t. So, use the tiles from normal square tile and turn it on it’s side. Don’t skip this step.


While laying out the tiles on the floor, now is a good time to make any necessary cuts to fit the sheets flat up to the wall.

Adding details

We wanted to add a little period detail to the floor, so we cut black ‘daisies’ out of the black hexagon tiles and placed them at this point.
