Hardwoods are beautiful and go with all different styles of homes, but are high maintenance and need to be refinished every handful of years. Cement floor tiles don’t ever need to be refinished, and they don’t show scratches, scuffing, and fading like hardwoods. Cement tiles are great for every room in your home, including high-traffic areas, and are practical and cost-efficient for a busy commercial space.
Cement tiles are typically 8 by 8 inches and run about $15 to $29 per square foot. Rustico Tile & Stone’s price range for standard 8×8 tiles are $9-$17/sf. Installation would be the same as ceramic or porcelain tile, with one big difference. Cement tile has to be sealed with penetrating sealer after is has been set but before grouting. The sealer will protect the front facade of the tile from absorbing the grout material.

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.

I was super exciting. The moment I entered I felt welcomed. They had a great selection, beautiful designs, great colors to choose from, and not to mention great customer service. It felt like I was back in Morocco. 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.
I used them in this kitchen, above, that was installed in a 1920’s Spanish style renovation. It is still one of my favorites. Note: the floor tiles weren’t properly sealed the first time (if at all, I don’t remember and it wasn’t my contractor) so they got really dirty really fast. I had to have them professionally scrubbed and then resealed but they definitely still had a lot of wear from those couple days of no-sealant days. It actually looks great because its an old house but if you had a new house you might not be so into it.

**So glad** you mentioned Villa Lagoon! Lundy (the most gorgeous, both in body and heart), the owner, helped me with our laundry room (now changing room) project eight years ago. I wanted a colorful crazy quilt and Lundy definitely ensured I got what I wanted, including a good mix of black to help ground the pattern(s). I did investigate Popham but back then they were still only in Morocco, not yet in the US with Ann Sacks, and, while lovely, they were (are?) a bit more mod than I wanted (although I do like their Rings) and MUCH more $$$ than Villa Lagoon.
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.
