Few places are more synonymous with tile—all types of tiles—than Morocco. Your mind (at least our cement-tile-obsessed minds here at Granada Tile) immediately conjure up images of stately riads with their dreamy interior courtyards and surfaces covered with jewel-like tiles.
Over the years, Marcos and Melanie have made several trips to the country, traveling throughout for inspiration for our own collection of cement tiles. (You can take a look at some of their wonderful cement tile photos here.) The colors and patterns they’ve discovered have informed many concrete tile designs in our collection and the stunning cities have even lent their names to a few.
There’s Fez, of course, our Echo Collection‘s flagship cement tile design. It’s a simple pattern of small squares and diamonds that looks sensational just about anywhere. Installed in a kitchen tile backsplash it strikes just the right note of sophistication and fun. It also looks amazing placed just about anywhere else, from bathroom tiles to floor tiles lining an exterior entrance—when you want to make just the right statement.
Rabat is another wonderful cement tile design that takes its name and much of its inspiration from Morocco. The trellis pattern is low-key but elegant and fits just about any cement tile installation need you might have. Looking for some cement tile for your bathroom tile or for your kitchen tile? It’s a great choice and can be customized to match your preferred palette (as you know all of our cement tiles can).
Now, if you’re looking for something a little bolder that can capture the intensity of color and pattern that overflows in Morocco, look no further than Tangier. For this concrete tile design, dynamism is the name of the game. With its swooping, graceful curves, it’s a complex cement tile design worthy of center stage in your next tile installation.
Our other concrete tile collections also bring some of the flavor of Morocco. Both our Minis collection, with its zellige-like small cement tile tiles, and our Mauresque collection have a feeling for Morocco. Explore them all as you plan your next cement tile installation.
