I fell in love with hexagon tile when we were building our house over four years ago. I loved the classic, small design and the visual interest it gave a small space and thought it would be perfect for our master bathroom. It wasn’t until I was in the design center months later that I realized that if we asked for the hexagon tile in the bathroom it was a huge upgrade and would add a sum to our budget that wasn’t worth the cost at the time. When you’re building a house you have to make decisions like that as those small details can add up so quickly. If you’ve been following along our journey on Instagram you may have noticed that we have been finishing our basement for some time now. We are getting SOOOO close and I cannot wait to share the end result with you. It has been a lot of fun to be able to pick the finishes I REALLY want and not have to worry about paying for those upgrades in a 30 year mortgage!
I came across this image on Pinterest a long time ago and knew that is what I wanted in my bathroom. My dear husband agreed to my desires and it wasn’t until working with this tile that we came to understand why the cost was so much greater. The small tile is very time consuming and will break very easily if you try to cut the small corners to fit up against the wall. My husband wanted to finish off the edge in an attractive way but didn’t have the fine tools necessary to cut tile so delicate. That is when he came up with this hack to trim off the tile up against the bathtub to give it a beautiful finish without the mess of the tile breaking. Gorilla Glue to the rescue! There have been many times that Gorilla glue has saved us in a project as we have used it for flooring transition pieces and knew it would do just the trick for finishing off the tile up against the bath. We used the construction adhesive as it was the best choice for this project. You can use whatever trim piece fits your purposes. We wanted to keep the tub easy to clean and opted for a small rounded piece of trim. You can have this measured and cut at your local construction store or cut it yourself. Make sure to apply a thick layer between the tile and the trim piece and hold the trim in place for a couple of minutes as it sets. You may also want to have a rag handy so that you can wipe away any excess glue. Voila! It looks so much better and it was so easy to do! Make sure the caulk all of the cracks after it dries. This is eventually going to be a beautiful sea-glass subway tile, but that is another post for another day…Doesn’t the hexagon tile look amazing!?! I love it.
