I am considering putting these hexagon tiles on backsplash, and walls around the commode. I haven't seen much use of hexagons on walls mostly on floors. Is there a reason for this?

Hexagons must be having a "moment". Someone just posted a very similar question about using it on the shower wall. I say go for it. Personally, I have hexagons (a mix of marble and limestone) as my kitchen backsplash and carrara on the floor of my shower. So apparently I cannot get enough :)

I like them, we just did our bathroom and I covered my walls in metallic tiles :) You are the ONLY one who has to like the design, especially if you plan to live there for a while :)

If you like them then go for it, I think they are very nice and I like what your plans are for that tile.

I feel they are more common as a floor tile, but I have seen them used elsewhere in baths too. It is your space, so I suggest that you do as you like. Happy Houzzing.

Depending on how large of an area you are covering, I see no reason not to if you like it. I would just like to mention that if you are using a tile with marble or granite (any natural stone really) you MUST seal the tile at least twice a year. Your sample looks like marble which has a tendency to stain under hard water conditions. Natural stone is porous and the sealer will help keep the tiles from getting stained over time and help with bacteria and mold. Hope that helps

What is the floor going to be? It may look too busy or "out of balance" if the floor is large scale tile and small hex on the wall. As Studio Q mentioned, the size of the area will be a factor too. Having said that, I think it could look very nice, depending on your other materials.

There was another discussion with a homeowner who was very unhappy with the hex tiles on her floor. If they're not seen much on walls, it could be because they are very difficult to set. Having done my own hex-tile floor, I can't tell you how many times I had to pick up a sheet, clean it off, and reset it because I didn't get it straight. Every one of those tiles can shift.

Talk to an experienced tile setter about what it would take. I imagine it's doable. You might not like the price.

Maybe a larger size hex would be easier to lay and look less busy than the quarter sized hexes. That's a lot of grouting!

I think that is a good choice for something simple and a flexible look. I've seen hexagon tiles on bathroom walls and I though that they were excutied very well.
