Granada Tile's Normandy cement tiles in a bathroom on Style At Home Our Normandy cement tiles, used as the floor tile in this Style At Home house, set the scene for a beautiful bathroom. Offset by the otherwise all white space, the bathroom offers a place to truly “get away from it all”. In fact, despite its complex pattern, the soft colors and gentle swirls of the floor tile bring a note of calm to the space.

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:

Say what you will about Martha Stewart, you have to admit she’s the Queen of Clean and the master of the perfectly styled space.  It’s only curious that she’s waited this long to launch a magazine to share the secrets of her impeccably organized interiors.  Organizing is on newsstands now and we’re so thrilled to be in it!

Our Fez cement tiles appear on page 67 of the magazine as part of a bathroom GET THE LOOK feature. Our Serengeti concrete tile would also be another choice inspired by the encaustic tiles in this bold blue and white bathroom. Ordered in custom-colored blue and white, they would mimic the look of these tiles exactly.

Adrianna and Paul’s Granada Tile Fez cement tile bathroom, recently shown in Living Etc. is a stunner. It’s hard to look at this one photo of our Fez cement tile used as shower floor tile and shower wall tile without wanting to see the whole thing!  So, here it is:

Used as both bathroom floor tile and bathroom wall tile, the open plan space is certainly unique, not to mention inviting.  The Fez concrete tile picks up the rest of the home’s Moroccan and North African vibe.  The vibrant blue and white gives the romantic decor a contemporary jolt.

A bright white sink, a dark wooden armoire and a dark wooden mirror with an exotic frame pick up on the bathroom’s modern yet far-flung appeal.

Granada Tile Fez Cement Tile in Living, Etc.

IMG_0128

One of our favorite photos, among the many we have in our archives of the stunning spaces that our clients have created using Granada TIle cement tile, is Adriana Lopez’s spacious bathroom.  Filled with tropical plants, rustic decor, its almost a retreat in itself.  We love how the sun, streaming in from the skylight above, sparkles on our Fez cement tile in blue and white.  Used as both floor tile and wall tile, it creates a space that is at once exotic and modern simultaneously.

This interior, originally shot by photographer Marcia Prentice for Apartment Therapy, seems to have taken on a life of its own, popping up on blogs, in magazines and on websites all around the globe. So although we weren’t surprised, we were certainly excited and flattered to learn that it appeared in Living, Etc., further spreading the concrete tile love worldwide. If you don’t know Living, Etc., a shelter publication out of the U.K., you need to check it out.  It’s one of our favorite magazines so we’re particularly pleased to appear in its pages.

Granada Tiles Cluny Cement Tiles Upgrade A Black and White Bathroom

This black and white bathroom, which could have been austere and dull, gets upgraded with the addition of coquettishly patterned black and white cement tiles.  Using Granada Tile’s black and white Cluny cement tiles from our Echo Collection for this bathroom floor tile brings a touch of elegance and luxury, transforming a space that could have been ho hum into something wonderful and welcoming

Not only does this encaustic floor tile transform this bathroom into a place that’s beautiful, a concrete tile floor is also practical for wet rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens.  A cement tile floor feels as soft as silk on the feet and, because of concrete’s surface, a cement tile floor is rarely slippery, even when wet, make it a safer choice than slick porcelain tile floors.

How To: 6 Tips For Successfully Installing Granada Tile’s Cement Tiles

Install2

We recently stopped by a home where the cement tile was in the process of being installed by Vahe Alvazian of Artisan Tile and Stone Works in Playa del Rey, California. Alvazian knows what he’s talking about.  He installed Granada Tile’s Fez cement tiles at Intelligensia Coffee Shop in Silver Lake in Los Angeles, which is still looking great and inspiring Instagram photographs 10 years later.  Here are some of his tips:

Install7

– Installing cement tile is not that much different from installing regular tile, says Alvazian.  The major difference is that, until the tile is sealed, it’s important to always make sure that your installer has clean hands, otherwise dirt can mar the tiles since they haven’t yet been sealed.  With very light tiles, Alvazian’s crew often wears gloves!

Install4

– Also important are spacers.  These small pieces do exactly what their name suggests: they keep the concrete tiles spaced evenly apart from each other to ensure that the design remains consistent and doesn’t waver.

Install8

– When laying the tile, Alvazian’s crew always checks that the tiles are of even height with his hands.  Granada Tiles are handmade and while we discard any tiles that don’t meet our exacting specifications, there can be subtle variations and this is where your contractor shows how careful he is.

Install3

– Alvazian’s crew lays out the first line of cement tiles along the largest and straightest line in the room and then works outward towards the sides of the room.  Small cement tiles will be cut to fill in the spaces left as the design reaches the edges of the rooms.

Install10

– Use a wet cutter to cut the tile into smaller pieces.

Install9

– Alvazian suggests at least two coats of a good quality sealer.  He likes Revolution advanced sealer.  “Water based works good,” he counsels.

– The finished job is neat, clean and durable.  Note the perfectly cut edges along the wall.
