Cement Tile: From Los Angeles, for Los Angeles

04 / 27 / 2020

 

 

There are countless stereotypes about the City of Angels, and they’re simultaneously entirely true and entirely false. You can’t pin a label on one of the most eclectic cities in the world. From hipster Silverlake to “boujee” Beverly Hills, each neighborhood maintains its own unique vibe. The character from block to block is distinctly unique; Los Angeles can best be described as a Hodge-podge of art, culture, and attitude. The beauty in designing a space in Los Angeles is that there are no rules. Cement tiles are an ideal choice for personalizing your interior because there are so many one-of-a-kind options. If you’re a native Angeleno or a new Hollywood transplant, make your home as creative the city you live in.

 

 

 

The Culture of SoCal

 

 

With 100+ colors and patterns at Zia Tile, we truly offer an encaustic cement tile for every aesthetic. Whether you’ve been in LA for ten years or one day, you’ll notice the prevalent Spanish influence in the architecture and design of the city. Spanish art goes hand in hand with the impact of Mexican and Latin culture, and has always deeply permeated the Southwest. We’re proud to carry several cement tiles in traditional Spanish patterns. Our Toledo tile will brighten up any room, and it comes two stunning colorways. The Sevilla tile is one of our classic designs, and its charming cool tones are ideal for a bathroom floor or kitchen backsplash. If you like the Sevilla tile but you want something with a smaller pattern in more color options, our Cordoba tile is an excellent alternative.

 

 

 

Sunny Days Ahead

 

 

You can’t talk about Los Angeles without mentioning the sun. This city is known for a lot of things, but the near-perfect weather has to be at the top of the list. If you’re lucky enough to live in this city of eternal summer, you might as well compliment the hot weather and clear skies with warm-toned tile. There are countless solid colors of encaustic cement tile to choose from, but we thought we’d mention a few of our favorites. Find out if blondes really do have more fun with our buttery yellow Blonde shade. If you’re still feeling the Spanish design scheme but you want something solid, Terra Cotta is calling your name. Finally, one of California’s greatest charms is the sizzling Mojave Desert, and we have a tile to celebrate that specific region.

 

 

 

Life’s a Beach

 

 

California beaches have always been envied by the rest of the world. If you’re designing in one of the beachside boroughs, why not choose a tile perfect for your seaside bungalow? Our Cannes tile was made to complement the sand and the shore with its funky striped pattern and hexagonal cut. The Brighton tile was named after the British beach town, and it would be perfect for a home anywhere from Malibu to Manhattan Beach. If nautical is the name of your game, check out our Bateau design in three classic color combos.

 

 

 

A California Classic

 

 

We love living in LA for a lot of reasons, but Old Hollywood is what truly captured our hearts and made us decide to stay. This city radiates a special cinematic history and the eternal glamour is palpable. Bring some of the iconic vintage charm into your interior with our retro-patterned cement tiles. If you’ve fallen in love with the Mid-century style, our Orbital tile is a 1960s-inspired dream. For an art deco design, install our Victory tiles with the stripes facing upward in a typical ‘20s vertical pattern. Looking for a super versatile tile to fit with your traditional décor? Our Compound tile was made just for you.

 

 

 

Calling All Hollywood Homeowners

 

 

We at Zia Tile have a special affinity for LA-based projects because Hollywood is our home base! Our company started smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles, and the vibrant diversity of the city has influenced us from the very start. We always recommend cement tiles to our fellow Angelenos because they don’t just look beautiful, they’re also perfect for homeowners with busy lifestyles! Keep cool with tile floors that are super easy to clean. All you have to do is wipe them down with a pH-neutral cleaner and you’re good to go all summer long!
