All that to say that United Tile is a valuable partner for bringing beautiful and cutting edge tile products to you including hexagon tile and chevron tile that you can use individually or in combination to create stunning designs! For example, the image at the top captures the look of a hexagon combined with chevron tile. It comes from a display at Coverings, the largest tile and stone show in North America.

You can create a similar design using product from United Tile as you can see in the image below. (By the way, don’t you love how the hexagon tile has been cut in half to create that playful wall band around the edge of the floor?

So let’s explore these two stunning geometric tile collections – and the patterns you can create with them – in more detail.

Chevron Tile by Equipe

The Chevron collection comes in three colors: Blanco Matte, Gris Matte, and Negro Matte. Each individual tile measures 3-1/2″x8″ and comes in either a left or a right chevron so you can create the pattern you prefer.

Based on the combination of left and right chevrons, you can create a herringbone pattern, such as the image below.

In both cases, notice how dramatic the choice of grout color looks: above the white grout contrasts with the Gris tile whereas black grout accentuates the graphic pattern. Or, you can choose a grout that matches the tile color.
