Happiness in the Hundreds

 Nothing screams versatility like 100+ options. Our cement tiles are offered in a wide variety of patterns and colors. You can go bold and use a vivid design over your entire decorative backsplash, or use solid color tiles with patterned accent pieces. Try our peachy-perfect solid delta moon shade and throw in the odd delta moon little nova tile for a little zest. Tied to tradition? No problem! Our ornate Manchester tiles are just as charming as they are classic. Of course, we can’t forget the ever-popular Spanish-style interior! For Mediterranean-inspired decorative backsplashes, we have too many options to list. A few of our favorites are the Vega, the Toledo, and the stunning Sevilla. From funky designs like our Echo hex tile, to our sleek Bauhaus tile that is striking in its simplicity, there is truly something for everyone.  

“Cut” Yourself a Break

  Speaking of endless possibilities, our encaustic cement tiles are available in four contrasting cuts. Our most popular cement tile is the 8x8 square, but we have plenty of options for a smaller-size install. Try our 4x4 squares for the perfect backsplash-friendly cut. Looking for something a little different for your decorative backsplash? Our diamond-shaped tiles are undeniably eye-catching. For the super adventurous designer, our hex cement tiles are suitable for any surface.   

Say Goodbye to Grime

  Let’s face it, kitchens get messy. It’s inevitable. Even if you order takeout, you somehow end up with a pile of dirty dishes and a grimy counter. It’s one of life’s greatest mysteries. What’s not a mystery, however, is how to keep cement tile sparkling clean! These low-maintenance hotshots require very little upkeep. Natural wear and tear actually adds to their charm. Because no two tiles look exactly alike, visual variation is expected and even encouraged. You want your guests to know you installed something handmade. As far as keeping them squeaky clean, just wipe them down with a pH neutral cleaner every once in a while. No tricks, that’s it! Your decorative backsplash never looked better.
