This is a great question. I have not corrected our issue yet. However, after a lot of thought, I think I am going to use painted wood trim as edging. Unfortunately, cement tile does not come with finishing trim pieces. I wonder if the companies that make them will ever address that issue, especially now that this style of tile is so popular. I suppose it is really meant for the floor, but cement tile makes such a beautiful backsplash material.


the polishing is completed with a light penetrating sealer that allows the tiles to ship without the abrasion issues that are prevalent when shipping pigmented tiles. this sealant also assists through the first stages of installation (setting and pre-grouting). we keep the sealant light so that it doesn't act as a bond barrier for the setting material. this is why we require additional sealant prior to grouting (to help prevent grout staining).

Items that state "ships within 10-12 weeks" are made to order, with the 10-12 weeks being the production time. We are not able to expedite the production time as each tile is produced by hand one at a time and then requires time to fully cure so they do not break while in transit. After this 10- 12 week period the order will ship from our warehouse and transit time should be 1-7 business days.

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.

They went to France to learn the technique then came back and set up shop in Grenada, starting a factory that makes the eco-friendly, sensational cement tiles. "Not only are these handmade cement tiles strong, durable and scratch and stain resistant, they have a vintage beauty that can be very versatile," says Marcos. "The tiles’ bold patterns and dynamic colors can look just as beautiful in a historic mansion as in a new loft."

A custom banquette filled with colorful pillows coordinates with the backsplash and anchors the light-filled corner of the kitchen, creating a cozy breakfast nook. They also installed a richly patterned pressed tin ceiling to add vintage flair to an often overlooked part of a room. Eye-catching black trim makes the windows pop and completes this bold kitchen makeover.


The technique of creating mission cement tiles came to Mexico through Spanish artisans. Handmade mission cement tiles take a special mold for each design. The process involves blending high quality white Portland cement, marble powder, fine sand, and natural mineral color pigments. Unlike other varieties, cement tiles do not use glazes or a kiln. Rather, they undergo hydrolysis and they harden through their soak in vats of water. Solidifying the material with a hydraulic press gives these tiles exceptional resistance and superior strength.


I had searched around but found no one with authentic Moroccan tiles (some are from China, so don't be fooled). Then I found Zellij Gallery I decided to see if they had genuine Moroccan tiles & they did! I was super exciting. The moment I entered I felt welcomed. They had a great selection, beautiful designs, great colors to choose from. I decided to go with intricate Fassi design tiles, which represented the true Moroccan beauty as well as it would brighten up my kitchen. For the flooring, the Sala sheets composed of 2x2 inch Moroccan tiles in the color bone looked remarkable. Once my order was delivered. Faissel went a step further and came to assist the installers by making sure the tiles were done properly. He was extremely helpful! The end result was incredible. I'm happy with my design choices and recommend Zellij Gallery to all wanting to add unique, historic, and modern design into their homes. Thank you!! I can't recommend Zellij Gallery highly enough!

This series of solid-colored encaustic tiles was created so that there’s always something to perfectly coordinate with any patterned encaustic.

Even the solid colors of these wall and floor tiles will have natural variation and interest because they are hand mixed before being poured.
The tile you’re probably most used to seeing is ceramic tile, but we want to redirect your focus to another type of tile that has the same beauty but comes with many more benefits. Cement tile is made from an entirely different process than ceramic tiles, with a hard-wearing mixture of mineral powder, cement, sand, and color pigment. It is compressed with about 2,000 pounds of hydraulic pressure, and the design becomes a part of the tile, not simply glazed or painted on the surface. Ceramic tiles are made with clays and glazes and are fired in kilns and don’t offer the same level of resiliency. Cement tiles have proven to be more durable and long-lasting than ceramic tiles and show less wear and tear over time. Backsplash cement tiles are also water-resistant and stain-resistant when sealed properly.

Cement tiles were first produced in the South of France in the 1870s. They are known under various names such as Mission tiles, Cuban tiles, Victorian tiles, and hydraulic tiles. Cement tiles are popular in Mediterranean and Latin style spaces and are generally highly patterned with geometric and floral designs. Cement tiles are formed by hand pouring pigmented cement into decorative molds in order to separate the colors. When the cement has been set, the molds are removed and the tile compressed with 2,000 pounds of pressure. The result is an irresistible work of art to create a beautiful kitchen backsplash. Cement tiles are technically concrete tiles since they include aggregates such as marble dust and a layer of sand for reinforcement.

"We are particularly fond of our Eastern Earthenware line that is made by a sixth generation tile maker in Vietnam - a country that has a long legacy of tile making. The tiles are wood fired which means that there is a lot of variation in the color and texture for each batch. No one tile is identical to another but rather a medley of hues. Getting people to understand how special these differences are has not only been an education but when clients finally get it, they are also completely enamored and willing to think of tile not just as a uniform, monochrome surface but to consider it more as a piece of art."

Bathrooms: I just installed these tiles from Erin Adams design in my own bathroom and my search for those is what started this whole thing. Most cement tiles will work either on the floor or walls of your bathroom, but check with the manufacturer as some tiles will need to be sealed before they get a lot of foot traffic and water on them. Again, seal them after install and ideally keep sealing every couple years as needed.
Entry: Yes. You can put cement tiles in your entry but it certainly sets the vibe for the whole house. If you have again a Mediterranean or a Spanish style house then go for it, but if you have an English Tudor, then be careful what pattern you go for and choose one that has a more delicate, traditional feeling. Also anything too light or simple will get worn easier so go for darker/busier so that the wear and tear doesn’t stand out so much.

Thanks, Julia. I think it feels traditional too. Right now, I think I will just leave the backsplash painted rather than add anything else. I may change my mind down the road. The area behind the sink is actually too narrow for any sort of backsplash at all. There is a window right there, and the apron goes down within an inch or two of the countertop.


If you’re the DIY kind of home or business owner, installing cement tile yourself may be a great option. Tiling a floor is one of the most common DIY projects. While doing it yourself can save money down the road, if you don’t know how to install them properly, concrete tiles won’t add the kind of value you’re hoping for. Cement tiles look incredibly stylish and high-end, but if they are improperly installed and begin to stain or warp over time, or just look uneven, they’ll only end up costing you more money, time, and headaches down the road. Learn how to tile a floor using cement tiles with these tips and professional advice.
