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!

You're not limited to a predetermined color palette as is typical with factory-produced tile. With concrete, you can customize the color of your tiles to blend with your décor, such as choosing a shade that complements the wallpaper in your kitchen. Concrete tile manufacturers offer thousands of color options, ranging from soft natural earth tones to vibrant cherry reds. You can go with a uniform color or add more character by dreaming up a custom color blend. Read more about coloring concrete.
With our Euro partner, Mosaico, we provided the tile for this London England UK kitchen and outdoor terrace. We love the clean, crisp look and how the small kitchen is made so much larger by the extension of the matching outdoor terrace. The client wrote, "We love the tiles so much...You can see we have bi-folding doors that lead into the external courtyard area... in the spring and summertime it really open up our little kitchen. We are very pleased with the result."

When I got to my local tile shop to pick out something in person, I couldn't resist one last look. In my research, I'd learned all about "patina" that develops over time. Patina doesn't sound so bad, even though I know perfectly well from my zinc countertop that patina is sometimes just a nice way of saying it shows every little mark and scuff for years and years until it's old and then and only then is it actually a desirable thing. I admired the cement tiles on display, and asked the consultant working with me about them. Even she didn't want to sell them to me, or to anyone, for that matter.

Chips or texture variations may exist. This is normal and not considered a defect for handmade tiles. It is advised to order all cement tile needed for a project.

Inspired by the intricate natural beauty of a spiderweb, the 8" x 9" Blue Widow Hex tile transforms into a work of abstract art when it’s installed on your walls or floors.

The geometric design of this encaustic tile comes alive as a diamond motif lending modern appeal to entryways, kitchens, bathrooms and more.
Making the cuts and setting each row took such a long time that I kept having to add more water to the mortar. Even though I had the bucket covered with a wet towel, it dried out quickly. The whole process came to a screeching halt every time I needed to attend to the mortar. I was really wishing for a tiling partner after a few hours into this project. Future tile jobs will be two-person jobs around here.
if you are using tiles in kitchens, bathrooms, showers, restaurants and lobbies (all high-traffic areas) even after sealing cement tiles- you should expect a degree of patina as your tiles slowly acclimate to their location. if you are not familiar with unglazed surfaces that will age with time (such as limestones, terracottas, marbles etc) and are not a fan of patina, then you may want to select another tile.

Lovely transitional style custom home in Scottsdale, Arizona. The high ceilings, skylights, white cabinetry, and medium wood tones create a light and airy feeling throughout the home. The aesthetic gives a nod to contemporary design and has a sophisticated feel but is also very inviting and warm. In part this was achieved by the incorporation of varied colors, styles, and finishes on the fixtures, tiles, and accessories. The look was further enhanced by the juxtapositional use of black and white to create visual interest and make it fun. Thoughtfully designed and built for real living and indoor/ outdoor entertainment.

Months ago, when Andy and I were considering a complete gut-renovation of the kitchen in BHH, I started to do some poking around on Pinterest and pinning favorites on our kitchen ideas board. I noticed a trend in most of my choices. I like decorative tile.  That surprised me. Initially, I really only considered white subway tile.  It is clean, classic, and easy to find.  It would bridge the decorating gap between our 1800s home and a new modern kitchen.  However, once I saw all of the beautiful tile choices available, I could not get the idea of something with a lot more punch than subway tile out of my head.
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.
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.
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.

if clé cement tiles are pre-polished and pre-sealed, why do I have to use a grout release? clé is pleased to offer cement tiles that are pre-polished and pre-sealed. if you have witnessed the difference in cement tiles without this hand-rubbed finish, you know that clé cement tiles’ smooth finish helps our tiles through transportation blemishes and the first stages of installation care. HOWEVER, grouts are very problematic to cement tiles and taking extra care against staining is essential to success. please be sure to ALWAYS use grout release.
so this friday, on the perch of the future, clé is committing to the bigger question with our promise of smaller ongoing actions that we trust when woven together will make for bigger results. today, we commit to trying our best to support the greater whole. we commit to not turning away from the harder questions. we commit to sharing ourselves and our resources with those in need. we commit to using our talents to better the world around us. we commit to being better people. we commit to acting out of love and not hate.
Cement tiles have been revered for their unmatched durability, crack and chip-resistance, waterproof finish, and incredible amount of designs and possibilities available for years. Hard wood floors continue to be a popular choice among home and business owners for their perceived value and aesthetic. However, hard woods are limited in use, and while they look gorgeous at first, they can quickly become scratched, faded, and warped due to water damage. Ceramic tiles are a lovely alternative to hard woods but history has shown us that they aren’t the most durable option either. The cement tiles at Granada Tile are hand-poured and set by an immense amount of pressure to create a nearly impenetrable product. They come in so many more looks than hard woods, and eliminate virtually all of the associated concerns of wood floors and ceramic tile.
