Hexagon Bathroom Tile

slo_gardenOctober 27, 2010

Does anyone know of a company other than B&W that makes 4" (or 3") hexagon bathroom tiles in colors other than white or black? My late 1920s green Art Deco bathroom needs serious work including a re-tile job, and I'd like to recreate the same look as it has now. Everyone seems to have only the small hex tiles.

Is Italy the tile center of the world?
If so, we need an Italian resident to chime in...
Google?

A quick browse seems to show this company having 3" hexes...might check it out.

Ann Sacks has a 4" hex in her Caliper collection in Ceramic Basics. It appears to come in about 125 colors.

Thanks for the sources. I actually had seen both of those companies, but they are a little (gasp, choke) expensive. Believe it or not I did Google and have visited several tile stores before asking ;) I guess I should have clarified that I has looking for something more economical. It appears that B&W is the only company that makes colored 4" hexagon tiles that don't cost a small fortune. (The Ann Sack ones are gorgeous!).

How many square feet is your bath? The Ann Sacks is expensive but it is actually one of their "budget" tiles at around $12 a square foot. A large 10x10 bath (mine is 5X7) would run $1200 for the tile. At least in my location, the incremental difference between that and white Daltile would not be a lot compared to the labor costs of installing it.

Don't get me wrong, I have happily used the white Daltile a number of times because of budget (including my own bath) but the difference between $350 for 100 sq ft and $1200 --$900 could be absorbed or offset somewhere else if the look of the bath is really important.

Interesting. The only Ann Sacks tile that I saw (in my local tile store) in large, colored hexagon was $20 a square foot! They told me that was all that was offered in what I was looking for. It was stunningly beautiful, but B&W is about half that price. Daltile was cheaper still, but they only make a 1" hexagon. I'll double check with the company's website to see if I'm missing something. Thanks!
