Whether it’s spills, splashes, or splatters, the kitchen is often on the receiving end of some pretty tough messes. If you’re not careful, you can easily end up with a kitchen covered in food stains and grease spatters, which can lead to a dingy appearance or even lingering odors. In our opinion, the kitchen should be a source of comfort; a place where families and friends can gather around, share a meal, and spend quality time together. We love to see kitchens live up to their potential. That’s why we at Riad love to see our cement tiles being used to create kitchen backsplashes.

If you’re looking for a bold-floor look that is sure to be the focus of any room, encaustic tile is a perfect choice. These artistic tiles are made by dying cement tiles with two or more colors using mineral pigments and a mold, creating a beautiful and colorful design. Encaustic tile has a rich history, having been around since medieval times and reaching their height in the 1700–1800s when the tiles were able to be mass produced and became available to the general public. England, which was the historic center of production, still has the greatest amount of encaustic tile floors. When placed together on a floor, encaustic tiles create a repeating pattern that pairs perfectly with neutral wall colors. This look blends old-world style with modern colors and patterns into one unique and timeless tile.
Tiles are a great material to include in your kitchen remodel or refresh and they’re one of the most visually stunning and practical products you can find. You can place them on the floors for a durable foundation for the high traffic area, and on the backsplash to make clean-up easier and faster. If you’re planning a total renovation of your kitchen, then be sure to include tile in your plans. And if you’re simply wanting to spruce up an outdated kitchen, start with the backsplash and look at the many tile options before you head right to other more expensive changes. Kitchen backsplash tile is a small and easy way to instantly change the entire look and feel of your kitchen.
I have trouble with long-term monogamous commitments to color. (It’s not you, color, it’s me.) My favorite color changes on a regular basis. It is currently orange. Last year it was blue. Knowing this about myself, I began to explore all of the black, white and grey options. Some people think of these shades as the ho-hum neutrals. I think of them as the stable counterpart to capricious color-changing moods.
cement tiles have been around for the past 150 years and have been called numerous names including encaustic cement tile, cement tile, concrete tile, hydraulicos*, cuban tile, and more. whatever their nomenclature, clé offers one of the finest cement tiles on a surface that is at once muted, varied, matte and silky. these tiles come in a myriad of patterns, think: moroccan, black and whites, neutrals, stripes, and more. in addition to our standard eight-by-eight-inch square tiles we offer color blocks of rectangles, hexes, diamonds, triangles, arabesques and scallops. our compelling cement tile patterns and shapes include some of the most sought-after tiles today for both walls and floors, indoors and out.

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.
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.

It starts with installation, he said. "It's really inconsistent in size and that makes installation take longer because you're trying to make up for the size difference. It's not symmetrical in any way, shape, or form." When it comes to grouting, even with using sealing products to prevent issues, "Oh my goodness it's a pain—it's so porous, it sucks the pigment of the grout in and it's hard to get it off," he said.
If you've seen some drop dead gorgeous patterned tiles on Pinterest lately, there's a good chance they are made of cement. These matte-finish, often bold patterned tiles are absolutely beautiful. Historically more common throughout Europe than here, they've gathered major steam on this side of the pond. After days and weeks of scouring the internet looking for the perfect tile for our bathroom renovation, and not finding anything that was just right, late one night I finally found The One in a photo of a dreamy bathroom.

Everything I’ve found online recommends an impregnator/penetrating sealer for cement tiles.  Cement tiles are super porous meaning they’ll stain easily, so you have to seal them prior to grouting.  I plan to use this sealer product.  And then I’ll grout them with either a bright white grout or an off-white grout that matches the field color of the tile.  We ended up with 1/4″ grout lines (which is 1/8″ thicker than the manufacturer recommends…oops), so I’ll use a sanded grout.  Stay tuned for that.
