Since it is just not cement, a concrete tile offers various features like durability, easier cleaning and maintenance. With regular cleaning, it is fairly easy to maintain the durability. It is recommended to use clean water and microfiber mop each time. You can mix water with neutral cleansers to avoid abrasion of the tile. For long-term maintenance, it is better to invest in resealing of the tiles when it is required.

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 And if you’re simply wanting to spruce up an outdated kitchen, start with the backsplash and look at the many tile options before you head right to other more expensive changes.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.

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.

We are thrilled that the show used our Bouquet II pattern in an episode of this season’s show. The episode is titled “Arched Mediterranean Kitchen” (Season 11, Episode 2) and follows a couple as they get a complete kitchen renovation. Our handmade cement tile is used on the kitchen backsplash to create a unique centerpiece for the space. The Bouquet cement tile pattern blends in perfectly with the new kitchen’s Mediterranean theme.

When we were looking at cement tiles for our kitchen floor, I had major fear of color, even though we went with blue cabinets (which could be painted any other color). The cement tile floor being our biggest investment in our kitchen renovation, we went safe on color by going black and white (but bold on pattern) knowing it would never truly be out of style or clash with anything else in the room.

 It is expected that 2%-3% of your tile arrives damaged (chipped or scratched), since our tiles are primarily handmade, hand picked and hand packed exposing the product to breakage, therefore slight surface issues are standard. The best practice is to order at least 10% more than your project requirements to cover allow for these issues, as well as other breakage during installation.
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 is a great question. I have not corrected our issue yet. However, after a lot of thought, I think I am going to use painted wood trim as edging. Unfortunately, cement tile does not come with finishing trim pieces. I wonder if the companies that make them will ever address that issue, especially now that this style of tile is so popular. I suppose it is really meant for the floor, but cement tile makes such a beautiful backsplash material.

I was so nervous that the stove would not fit properly under the tile that I could not even watch the install. Every now and then I would listen carefully to see if I could hear the contractor muttering profanities or something that would let me know it was not going well. I heard nothing and hoped for the best. It was a loooooong hour, but when it was over, we had a stove.

Anyway…back to the tiles.  Garrett really wanted to inset the backsplash into the wall so the edges of the tile would be concealed by the surrounding drywall.  I wasn’t really concerned about seeing the tile edges, but I let him go after it anyway ‘cause marriage is all about compromise.  And I like to compromise on the small stuff ;).  So Garrett put up 1/4″ hardiboard behind the backsplash and 5/8″ drwyall around it.  He pushed out the drywall immediately on either side of the hardiboard with 1/8″ furring strips so I had a solid 3/4″ of depth to work with for laying the mortar and tile.

This functional, light-filled home takes full advantage of its bucolic site. With the introduction of the butterfly roof, natural light, ventilation and views are brought into the main gathering spaces. Distance between the private and public zones is created by a shift in geometry where those two meet in plan, to provide a calming and rejuvenating private retreat for the occupants. The structured juxtaposition of materials brings order and warmth to the home’s overall experience, complementing the textures and beauty of the site. Photo: ©Cesar Rubio
