Then I started telling tile installers my plans. And the response from each of them was the same: A concerned look on their faces, the one that says clear as day, "I need to tread carefully here and be sure this person doesn't make a horrible mistake." The sentiment was the same with each as well: They'd do it if I insisted, but I'd be hearing "I told you so," down the road.

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.
The pigment composition is a mixture of high quality white Portland cement, marble powder, fine sand, and natural mineral color pigments. The individual patterns are made by manually applying separate pigments, one by one, in a handmade copper mold. This incredibly delicate and skilled process can only be performed by highly trained artisans with many years of experience creating handmade encaustic cement tile.
