Inhale the smell of evergreens and coffee beans, because we’re bringing encaustic cement tile to the Emerald City. Seattle, Washington is an iconic northwest city with character to match. Full of young artists who embrace the famously overcast skies, this city is unlike any other. How do you design an interior in such a unique city, you may ask? That’s easy! You choose materials that are one-of-a-kind. This earthy metropolis demands design that is handmade. Our encaustic cement tiles are made one by one by skilled artisans, and no two tiles are exactly the same. There’s nothing Seattleites appreciate more than craft and culture.
Being a tree-hugger is basically a requirement for Seattle residents. Eco-friendly isn’t just a fad, it’s essential to the lifestyle of the PNW. You’ll get fined for not recycling and the city-wide noise curfew is specifically for the benefit of the native owl population. When designing a space in one of the greenest cities in the US, you have to be conscious of your carbon footprint. Lucky for you, cement tiles are much better for the environment than other comparable décor options. They don’t require firing in a kiln at all, and they are created using a simple hydraulic press. Why not renovate and save the planet at the same time?
Coffee shop culture is the heart of the city. Not only is Seattle known for being the birthplace of Starbucks, but it also hosts an independent café on every corner. Seattleites love their coffee almost as much as they love the outdoors. (Maybe even a little more.) If you’re a coffee shop owner, or you just want to capture the vibe of the cozy café lifestyle, cement tiles can be installed in a variety of interiors and exteriors. They’re totally suitable for high-trafficked, commercial spaces, and their funky patterns and colors are sure to attract attention. Whether you’re trying to impress customers or house guests, these eye-catching tiles are just as pretty as they are practical.
What’s the first word that comes to mind when you think of Seattle? That’s right, rain. It’s no secret that this city gets its fair share of showers. Weather is a huge consideration when you’re decorating a space in Seattle, especially if it’s outside. Not only are cement tiles suitable for indoor or outdoor installations, but they’re also water resistant. If you’re thinking about re-doing your entryway, but you want to choose a floor that’s impervious to damp shoes coming and going, cement tiles are an excellent choice. The same goes for if you’re designing an inviting patio space. As long as you seal the tiles correctly, they’ll stay stunning for a long time.
Whether you’re remodeling a bathroom or renovating a kitchen, we know that every Seattle-based designer has a unique creative vision. That’s why we offer a tile for every style. Our brand-new Bauhaus tile is made for the artsy Pacific North-Westerner, and Brixton tile is a minimalist’s dream. If you want something with a little more edge, our hex-shaped cement tiles offer the perfect solution. The solid colors are practically limitless, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention our appropriately-named Emerald green tile. On the other hand, if you’re on the hunt for something to brighten up your cloudy city, our Cadmium yellow is sure to do the trick.
