The Ciment cement floor and wall tile in blue and white sky offers a monochrome blue old-world design set on a white background. These tiles are set on a 1” cement base where color is poured over it into a mold, pressed in a hydraulic press and baked at extremely high temperatures. These handmade tiles offer natural variations and chips, which are reflections of traditional cement tile. Best for interior floors and walls, these and all cement tiles require sealing. Please refer to the sealing...

Adhesive, tile spacers, notched trowel, bucket, tape measure, grout and grout sponge. Tip: Pick a grout color that complements your tile, avoid an exact color match. Select one that will be easy to keep clean and try to stay away from bright white, unless you love scrubbing. Seal the cement tiles with a penetrating sealer like HydraGuard first. Install it. Then seal the grout. The sealer protects from grout staining. Premixed grout with sealer is not the best, so use with sanded grout and then seal it. It’s a far better process and better protection.
The apparent simplicity of the Rogue Hex encaustic tile is deceptive. Inspired by tessellations, or repeated, close-fitting polygons, the diamonds and triangles on this hexagon tile can be flipped in different directions to create cubes and other geometric designs. Design a chic black-and-white accent wall or entryway floor with timeless style using 8" x 9" Rogue encaustics.

Browse through our Floor Tiles in our Gallery and you’ll see that encaustic cement floor tiles transform a space, no matter if that space is modern and bold, eclectic and bohemian, or fun and colorful. At Granada Tile, we offer traditional encaustic floor tiles made with both bright  and subtle colors and intricate patterns as well as bold geometric designs and clean lines.
I would be concerned about staining of the tiles. The reality is that sealing may be necessary periodically and I, personally know how easy it is to say: I'll do it again in a year, but not now. We just had a tile demo in our master bath, and replaced the beautiful, but slightly porous tiles with high end, large format porcelain tiles. The old tiles were in perfect shape, but we got tired of staining and discoloration from things that got dripped on the floor, and mineral deposition in the shower which became impossible to remove. My tiles were not encaustic, but I would be concerned about these same issues if I installed encaustic tiles anywhere but on the walls. Call me lazy, but I want a tile installation that involves minimal maintenance and worry over the long term, and no need for resealing..
Trends come and go; what is popular and beautiful today, is second best tomorrow in the design world. So it’s no surprise if you’re feeling a little skeptical to use patterned cement tiles in your home, and worried that this fad will be yet another passing trend. But cement tiles are here to stay. In fact, they never left. Cement tiles have been used for over 150 years in grand residences and public buildings.
The craftsman house involved in the project is over 100 years old. It’s a brown shingle craftsman very typical of the local homes and the owners are bringing it back to life little by little. The owners are both wonderful cooks (she’s French so of course!) and spend a lot of time in their well-used kitchen. The home was updated sometime in the 80’s and was ready for a serious face-lift. The clients wanted to incorporate a French/Moroccan style with the architectural elements of a craftsman. We think they succeeded!
Love cement tiles – have them in my guest bath and fireplace surround – but those puppies are hard to seal properly. Make sure you’ve got somebody who knows what they’re doing. In the bathroom, first guy made a giant mess of the job – specialist had to come in, scrape the bad sealer off and reseal – they ended up with a bit more of a rustic, distressed finish, but it works OK with the style of my house (kinda like Emily’s cloent’s kitchen)
Backsplash tiles are usually small to medium sized tiles and can be ceramic, porcelain or cement. They are meant to provide a water-resistant and durable barrier between the wall of the kitchen and all of the messes from cooking. Backsplash tiles help to prevent staining and water damage on the wall, and provide a stylistic touch with the nearly unlimited amount of colors, sizes, shapes, and patterns to choose from.
pink has gone crazy at clé. mostly because it's going through the roof, everywhere. it is the season for shades of pink and red afterall (valentine's day). we were compelled to create a pink pinboard and found that once we started our pinboard, there was nooooooo turning back- today a peek at our "pin-k board" and some of our favorite shades of pink and red zellige tiles...  
Backsplash is a hot topic in home décor today, and we can see why. Nothing can enliven a room in quite the same way as backsplash, especially cement tile backsplash. In a kitchen, cement tile backsplash can simply serve as a pop of color, something subtle and classic to compliment your existing style, or the statement piece your kitchen is missing. Think of what a fresh feel our Nola Pink cement tile could bring to your kitchen. It could be your cement tile statement piece! You could even try open shelving to really accentuate your new cement tile and catch the eye of your guests. Or if you’re seeking an exciting pattern that will give you lots options and really get your guests talking, try our Zanzibar Black cement tile.
Encaustic bathroom floor tiles showcase the resiliency of this material even more than their use as regular floor tiles. Cement encaustic tile will help you make your bathroom beautiful, slip-resistant and water-damage resistant, especially if the tile is used on both the floors and walls. Just check out our Bathroom tiles section in our Gallery to see for yourself.
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.
Whether you’re looking to add color, pattern, texture, or a one-of-a-kind feature in your home or business, cement tiles can completely change the look and feel of a space and make it your own. If you have a room, like a kitchen, that is boring and lacks personality, cement tiles will instantly add style and visual interest. And the great thing about that is, you don’t need an expensive full renovation to do it. All you may need are concrete tiles from our cement tile shop to transform your space and turn it from blah to wow, with color and pattern.
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.

I have to admit I chuckled a little hearing that it’s national ceramic tile day. Is there anything without a national day? This post is an absolute godsend. There’s about 10 different placed in my home that I want to add ceramic tile to. We have a midcentury raised ranch that is so cookie-cutter-vanilla-suburbia it makes me want to cry. I need to add some (appropriate) spice to this house ASAP!

this page is of particular importance to your encaustic cement tile installation. this is because the highest degree of incidence with cement tile installations are based on failures that occur using the wrong grout or the wrong grouting methods. remember, your tiles are cement and they can be stained with the grout pigment as this pigment is the exact colorant that is used to pigment cement tiles.

There is only 60 pieces left of the pattern I want, and I need 120 pieces:  The sale only applies to the tile that is in stock and only while stock lasts.  There are challenges with ordering more tile from a different lot and we do not recommend it.  If your project requires more please reach out to us at contact@cletile.com with your project needs.
This 8" x 8" Cement Field Tile in Gray/White transform spaces into works of art. Reminiscent of century-old encaustic tiles, cement tiles have been handcrafted by artisans for decades. The designs and colors create a beautiful and durable surface that is more aesthetically appealing than basic cement or drywall, and more durable and eco-friendly than wood or laminate flooring.
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 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).

The main difference between concrete and ceramic tiles is, unlike ceramic tiles, the design of cement tiles isn’t painted on top of the tile, but is a solid part of the tile itself. Ceramic tiles are made with color pigments on the surface and topped with a glaze. The fact that the design is applied to the top of the tile is what causes ceramic tiles to scratch and fade. The manufacturing process of concrete tiles is what gives them their strength and resistance to the typical wear and tear you see on ceramic tiles.

Leaving those beauties stacked in the corner while Garrett finished drywalling was akin to torture.  Okay, that’s probably a little harsh, but I’m just not a patient person when it comes to finishing a kitchen.  It’s only a hair easier than waiting for your baby to arrive after they’ve been cooking for over 41 weeks (not going to happen this time…right baby?!).
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.

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.
Some tiles are hand-pressed, others machine pressed. The hand-pressed can be more delicate or fragile because the pressing can be inconsistent. I'm not saying all hand-pressed are to be avoided, you can simply get better consistency when they are hydraulically pressed. If you're getting them from a large manufacturer, they are likely hydraulically pressed.
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...
It is also essential to order enough material, including overage, to help prevent the need to order more tile later. The exact same tile product, color, size, and dye-lots are not necessarily available to us from our manufacturers at a later date. Sometimes, after a period of time goes by, products can be discontinued by manufacturers. So, in the tile business, accurate ordering includes a certain percentage of overage, by necessity. Consult your licensed tile contractor about best practices regarding accurate tile measurement for your job, including an appropriate percentage of overage.
and so, in an attempt to meet the bigness of this question with a response that we could actually muster, we realized that the best solution might not be the grandest. perhaps we can take baby steps toward a future we can all support. let’s not get frightened to make a difference when the future looks bleak. even the smallest action can lead to a bigger outcome, especially when joined with efforts from one another.
