We fundamentally believe in the transformative power of tile to breath new life into any space, and bathrooms are a fantastic place to start. Cement tiles are known for their distinct matte finish, and tonal variation unique to our handcrafted tiles. Whether you’re renovating your bathroom or building it from scratch, cement tiles are a fantastic foundation material, and come in a diverse range of shapes, sizes, colors and patterns. Bathrooms aren’t traditionally large rooms, and that’s where the power of graphic patterned cement tile really begins to shine. From minimalist to traditional, and everything in between, the versatility of cement tiles fit a wide range of design aesthetics.
As a general rule, we always recommend using a pattern and color that fit the aesthetic of your space; if your home is an old victorian, then a loud and graphic pattern may not work. Conversely, our solid color 2×8 cement tiles might be the tile you never knew you couldn’t live without!
Encaustic cement tiles have a history nearly two centuries in the making, and are incredibly durable and long lasting. One of the reasons we fell in love with cement tiles is the natural patina that develops over time. Unlike mass produced ceramics, patina is inherent to the dynamic and evolving nature of cement tiles, lending character and complexity with age. Durability is just as important as design, which is why we use the highest quality portland cement and mineral pigments. Each tile is hydraulically pressed, without the need for a kiln; this process requires far less energy, making cement tiles naturally eco-friendly.
With their marvelously matte finish and dynamic range of shapes, color and patterns, cement tiles are all about options. Our first stop? Selecting color, tone, pattern and shape.
Natural & Neutral Tones: Our cement tiles lend beautifully to neutral colors and natural hues. We are obsessed with our matte-finish neutrals, including white, bone, and cotton, through gradients of cream and beige, soft blues and even greens and pinks. Each creates a bathroom space that is clean and calm.
Light colors: Our light toned cement tile colors offer a more relaxed vision that is both soft and subtle. Warm yellows; bright, earthy pinks or pastel greens and blues add just the right touch of statement to your space.
Dark Tones: Deep toned cement tiles, like our Midnight 2×8 cement tiles are bold and dramatic. Our dark toned tiles are made one by one, and each carries subtle tonal variation. These jewel toned beauties range from ochres and deep reds to rich purple and terra cotta to a multitude of greys and blacks.
Moorish Patterns: With their endless, interlocking geometries, Moorish cement tile designs like our Tangier pattern work well in smaller bathrooms, especially small powder rooms. In a world of mass produced perfection, we find a renewed appreciation of traditional cultures and handi-craft that have helped to make Moorish patterns more popular than ever.
Modern and Contemporary: Looking to do more with less? Our Meridian pattern IMMEDIATELY comes to mind. Built of simple chevrons lines, Meridian creates dynamic, maze-like structures that work beautifully in the most minimally appointed spaces and comes in three color ways.
If graphic patterns are what butters your biscuit, then our 8×8 and 4×4 squares or 8×9 inch hexagon tiles are a great place to start. Prefer solid colors? Our 2×8 cement subway tiles are marvelously matte and beautifully varied. A great point to remember here; any of our shapes can come in either a solid color or pattern, and custom sizes, colors and patterns are always possible – just ask!
Cement tile, especially our graphic patterns, can really light up a room, and that translates well to bathroom walls as well. Our diverse collection of patterns range from something as simple as our dual color Delta tile through to our bright and vibrant Isola pattern. Whichever you choose, your tile will set the design direction for the room, and this is especially true of our graphic patterns and bold colors.
We are passionate about the individual, wholly unique character of our cement tiles. No two of our colorfully patterned tiles are exactly alike—and we celebrate the subtle variations in texture and depth that are intrinsic to our handmade encaustic cement tile.
