There’s something about our Badajoz cement tile used as kitchen floor tile that always makes us sit up and take notice.  Like this kitchen from Apartment Therapy and this Portland kitchen by interior designer Jessica Helgerson that just keeps gathering steam, this tile pattern stops people in their tracks.

Certainly, we were floored when we spotted this project on Houzz.  Designed by Caitlin Murray of Black Lacquer Design, this kitchen gives a nod to the past (witness those mint green cabinets) and the present (brass hardware is very much on trend right now), melding the two together to create a space that is future thinking and timeless.

Use Granada Tile’s Cement Tile To Bring The Subtle Beauty of Grey Into Your Home

Granada Tile Hex cement tiles as floor tile at Otium at The Broad, Los Angeles

Grey or gray — however you spell it, this season’s surprise hot color is holding strong.  It’s trending on Pinterest, it’s showing up on couches and sectionals and it’s covering walls. And, we’re not surprised to say, it’s showing up underfoot.  Of course, the beautiful color of cement has always been one of our favorites and Granada Tile offers many beautiful grey cement tiles. In this recent article in Ocean Drive Magazine, Miami designer Juan Poggi sums the fascination with this color and suggests cement tile as one way to bring it into your home: “The romance of handmade cement tiles is still a great choice for flooring in any interior. The interlocking of patterns creates a rug effect on the floor.” Whether you chose a simple solid grey square tile, our cement colored hex tiles (seen above at Otium Restaurant in downtown Los Angeles) or a beautifully patterned design, grey is always a grey-at choice!  20131126150919ECHO_Collection-8x8_Decos-Athens_875_Ath-4

From Pop Sugar, Lessons From A DIY Bathroom Renovation

 

What were some of the important lessons that Tanya of Dans Le Lakehouse learned when she tackled her bathroom renovation?  Her biggest lessons were that cheaper is not always better. Instead of spending a little bit more on tiles that would’ve make her smile, she went with the simple white tiles included in her bathroom package, thinking that they would not only be cheaper but more appealing to the mythical home buyer she would eventually be selling her home to!  To learn from Tanya’s mistakes, check out the full article on PopSugar here.Granada Tile Fez cement tiles in close-up in a simple white bathroom

Get The Look: Use Granada Tile Serengeti Cement Tile To Get The Look Of This Bathroom Seen On Apartment Therapy

Yesterday, we shared a beautiful bathroom that paired a clawfoot bathtub with Granada Tile’s Cluny cement tile in black and white used as a bathroom tile floor, as shown on House Beautiful. That same bathroom makes an appearance in an article on Apartment Therapy on clawfoot bathtubs that includes this bathroom originally seen on Design Sponge.  The bathroom pairs a clawfoot bathtub with a geometric concrete tile in black and white that is very similar to our Serengeti cement tile:
