Choose Granada Cement Tile For A Splendid Shower

Start Your Day With A Stupendous Shower

Houzz recently included Granada Tile in a round up up fifty fabulous showers. It’s inspired us to do our own round-up of the incredible showers that are possible with Granada Tile’s concrete tile. Of course, we won’t deny that we’re biased. Without a doubt, our encaustic tiles are stunning in the shower. First of all, there’s their beautiful colors and patterns! With over 40 colors and 400 eye-catching designs, we’re certain there’s one style that will sing to you. And then, there’s the way that they feel underfoot. They’ve been described as soft, velvety and silky. Here’s a few ideas to get you going! Save them to your idea board (and find us) on Houzz or to your bathroom pinboard on Pinterest.

Get The Cement Tile Look: From Rug To Cement Tile


Funny how our cement tile-obsessed mind works.  We see concrete tiles everywhere — even where there aren’t any!  Take this beautiful project that we spotted over on Houzz.  That large richly patterned rug really ties the room together, doesn’t it?  What if that stylin’ floor was created in tiles rather using a rug?


Our Alhambra cement tiles, in blue and white, create a pattern that is very similar to this rug, providing the same effect with the added bonus of cement tile’s wonderful qualities: easy-care, long-lasting, child-friendly.  Find Alhambra tiles in our webstore here.

The same qualities that make our cement tiles perfect for a hardworking coffee shop or restaurant space — in addition to their beautiful designs and vivid colors, our concrete tiles are long lasting, easy care and low maintenance — make it perfect for your home, whether used as floor tile or wall tile.  Call us today at 213-482-8070 to discuss which of our encaustic tile designs would be perfect for your home or restaurant project.

Get Inspired: Great Cement Tile Ideas for Your Kitchen

Are you looking to spice up your kitchen? Did you recently move into a place that hasn’t had a kitchen update since they heyday of avocado and harvest gold? Or are things just a a little blah? Hands down, one of the best ways to perk up your kitchen, where, let’s face it, we tend to spend a lot of our time, is by installing cement tiles from Granada Tile. Today, we thought we’d share two very different kitchen tile installation photos that bring pattern and color into the space.

First up, a floor tile installation. The kitchen itself is pretty serious—and made for some serious cooking. The cabinets are finished in a rich, dark stain, while the tile backsplash is covered in a creamy subway tile installation. Our cement tiles bring the color to the space. There’s a field of coral-colored tiles, which bring a great dose of color themselves. The look is amplified by the border of our Monarch cement tiles that ring the perimeter of the central island, giving a bit of contrast and pattern. It’s subtle but very effective.

Pattern pops up in another great tile installation, this time a cement tile backsplash in a kitchen that has a rustic/traditional feel. The sage-colored cabinets have an antiqued finish and are paired with a concrete tile backsplash in our Alhambra concrete tile design—a pattern that takes its inspiration from classic tile designs of Spain and North Africa. It’s an unexpected combination, but it looks fantastic, especially bordered by a border on the top and bottom of a cement tile in a similar sage shade.

Installation Equation: Alhambra Outside Seattle

Yesterday, we shared a fantastic tile installation featuring our Santander tile design. Today, we’ve got another wonderful cement tile installation featuring Granada Tile. This time, though, color, in addition to pattern, takes center stage.

This tile installation idea comes to us from David Schneider, who chose to use Granada Tile in his own home near Seattle. The materials and the palette are by and large simple and neutral—pale walls and blond wood, for the most part, in a house that suggests Craftsman architecture. There’s a bit of pattern in the stained glass window in the door (one of those Craftsman touches), but it’s minimal. Instead, the real dynamism comes in the form of our cement tiles.

Schneider chose to cover his home’s entry in our Alhambra concrete tile design from our flagship Echo Collection. It’s a great, complex pattern that’s reminiscent of classic mosaic tile designs found in Spain and North Africa—with a palette of vivid shades to match. In the space, the concrete tiles provide a vivid splash of color that welcomes guests. The tile design’s palette also complements the bright contemporary artwork found in the entry and just beyond. Together, the strong colors of the concrete tiles and the paintings also serve as a lovely antidote to the frequent gray of the Pacific Northwest.

Color for the space comes from the owner’s contemporary art collection and the vivid cement tile floor. Tile photo, David Schneider.
