Acid Resistance Cement tiles should be cleaned with pH neutral cleaners (they are not acid resistant) Use in Wet Areas A high quality effective sealant must be used for surfaces that will be exposed to water (shower, spa, or pool) Installation and Maintenance We highly recommend you hire an specialist in tiles installation. Please check this document for a detailed step by step installation process: How to install and maintain cement tiles Note: Please remember that handmade crafts are not consistent in their dimensions due to the nature of being crafted by hand and a half inch variance should be allowed for in all planning and designing. Also, due to variations in products and monitor settings, images may differ from the actual product.
Jordan Design-Build Group is a full-service residential design-build firm serving the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area. For a recent remodel project a client wanted to go big and bold in the kitchen whilst maintaining an eclectic style. Using our Patchwork Random selection of colorful cement tiles, they created a ceiling-high backsplash that acts as the focal point of the room. (All photos © 2015 Stacy Zarin-Goldberg Photography.)
Cutting cement tiles takes a bit of extra patience because they’re harder and thicker than the ceramic tiles I’m used to working with. I found that cutting them face-up allowed for fewer chips on the face of the tile. When cutting these beauties, you have to be aware of the pattern. I cut the right and left edges off of 4 tiles. Then I laid these 3″ strips into the backsplash and called my work done.

I love, love the look, but they are high maintenance. I got white and light gray tiles in the bathrooms, definitely do not recommend white or light colored cement tiles. They stain very easily. The installation is also a challange. Like others said, sealing before grouting (once) and more than three times after is a must. First picture shows tiles after less than a year in use. Second pictures shows freshly installed tiles. My husband never wants this tiles again, and we are already thinking of replacing them in the guest bathroom.
For the first time, we now offer our random patchwork in 4″ x 4″ cement tiles. These tiles are offered in a thinner thickness than our standard tiles. They are only 15/32″ thick (1.2cm).

No, cement tiles are not truly encaustic, but it is an acceptable label for cement tiles, also known as inlaid tiles. When cement tiles were first introduced during the mid-1800s, the Victorians thought they looked just like encaustic tiles which have been around for centuries, and mistakenly started referring to them as encaustic tiles also. Since then, the term has been widely used interchangeably to describe these two tile art forms.
LE MOSAISTE teamed up with interior designer and new neighbor Paul L’Esperance (www.lesperancedesign.com), best known for his award-winning work on the 22 million dollar restoration of The Leland Stanford Mansion. The joint effort took the design of the new showroom into a direction that complements the elegant and organic qualities of the company’s artisan zellige tiles. The idea behind the décor was to pay tribute to the origin of the tiles while hinting at their versatility. The term that comes to mind is “Moroccan modern”.

not typically a fan of shades of green, we decided to begin to collect emerald-colored images onto a pinboard to see if they continued to capture our curiosity. we can’t believe it’s already managed to become one of our favorite pinboards. inspired by these beautiful images we have added green colorways to many of our cement patterns and even our watermark! who knew shades of green would capture us and our clients curiosity in such a big way?

Side note: Using a blade attachment on your power drill makes the job of mixing mortar easy, but be careful. The first few times I tried to mix the mortar, the blade was so powerful that it spun the bucket and slammed it into my shins. In order to keep this from happening again, I wedged the bucket between the front steps and my sneakers. Even then, it took a lot of muscle to hold it in place.
Capture the beauty of authentic, traditional cement tiles with the Ciment Artea 7.88" x 7.88" Cement Field Tile. These tiles are constructed of cement, offering a partial through-body coloring. Each tile is hand-crafted by taking a 1” cement base, pouring color into a mold, pressing the color with a hydraulic press and then allowing it to cure for a number of days. The result is a completely one of a kind look that may produce natural variations or chips, which are characteristics of true...
I went type A exactly one time while mixing a custom paint color for the upstairs at the old house. It was a big room and I knew it would take two gallons, so I actually measured the paint components. And it worked – I got two gallons of paint that exactly matched each other! (However, if I ever need to do that again, I’ll just use a five gallon bucket do the usual add-color-til-it-looks-good method.)
