Mixed, matched, yet perfectly coordinated. One of our favorite ways to create a modern mosaic look is by mixing our tile shapes. This technique creates stunning geometric looks that range from bold to sophisticated. Whether you're getting tile ideas for your kitchen backsplash, a statement floor, or a shower, this blog will inspire you to have fun with your tile shape choices.
Here are 7 Modern Ways to Mix and Match Tile Shapes:
1. Hexagons + Subway Tile
Your bathroom is a fun place to mix and match tile shapes because there are multiple surfaces to contrast shapes- the floor, walls, backsplash, and niches! In this project, we contrasted bright blue Subway Tile shower walls with a retro Hexagon Flower Pattern floor. This look will add interest and space to a small area, while keeping the general style classic.

2. Triangles + Square Tile
Get the look of trendy cement tile with the durability of ceramic tile by mixing and matching triangles and squares. Cement tiles are typically intricate geometric patterns that can look either Southwestern or Moroccan depending on how you style the space. Our triangles are a custom shape with endless possibilities. Ask someone from our sales team to help create your own brilliant pattern.
3. Diamonds + Hexagon Tile
We adore this pattern because of how our Medium Diamonds fit perfectly within our Large Hexagons when laid out. It's a pleasing geometric design that's extremely popular with our clients right now. Best part? There's no customization charge for this design, it will be priced out as standard tile. (Puppy not included).

4. Diamonds + Subway Tile
This stunning kitchen backsplash almost breaks our Instagram account every time we post about it. This unique tile shape is inspiring and not as difficult to achieve as it may look. We started by designing a custom ombre mosaic using Subway Tile that transitions into Diamonds. The tile was then laid out in our studio and cut down into easy-to-install mesh sheets. The sheets are numbered and a map is made, making install a breeze.

5. Bubbles + Subway Tile
Nothing is quite as fun as an organic transition of Bubbles into Subway Tile. We call them Bubble rivers because of their flowing effect. Go simple with one color, or create a rainbow of glazes for a brilliant design.Read all about this project with our blog "Cocoon Salon's Bubbly Statement Backsplash"
6. Large Hexagons + Small Hexagons
Add interest to your backsplash by custom-cutting Small Hexagons into our Large Hexagons. This futuristic look is perfect for a modern home or for someone looking to make a statement with their tile.
7. Moroccan Fish Scale Niche + Subway Tile
Sometimes the simplest contrasts make the biggest impacts. We encourage all of our clients to consider the possibility of adding a niche to their shower. Using a contrasting shape in your niche brings a stylish and curated aesthetic that will radiate throughout your entire bathroom. This is also a great way to integrate our pricier shapes that you love but may not be in budget. Most niches only require 2.5 sq. ft. of tile.
