She chose Granada Tile’s Toscano cement tiles for the bathroom floor. Mustard, black and yellow nod to the room’s many influences, elements and colors. The vintage claw foot bath, the industrial framing around the shower and toilet rooms, the crystal chandelier from Pottery Barn. The geometry of the concrete tile pattern finishes the room perfectly.  It’s a little bit rustic, a little bit glamorous, a little bit industrial and whole lot of appealing!   Granada Tiles' Toscano cement tiles tie the rustic, glamorous and industrial elements of this bathroom into a stylish whole

Get The Look: Granada Tile Can Create Custom Cement Tile For Your Tile Project

We admit it: we have this thing with floors.  We’re always looking down, checking out tile floors, tile patterns and tile designs, finding inspiration just underneath our feet.  We were recently in Highland Park, an up and coming neighborhood.  Which is when we spied this beautiful cement floor tiles at Civil Coffee, a new coffee shop on Figueroa.  The pastel green concrete floor tiles combined with the wooden countertops is at once old-fashioned and fresh.

CivilCoffeeWhile you may know Granada Tile cement tile for our many beautiful tile patterns, especially the ones in our Echo Collection, like our Fez concrete tile, seen in Intelligensia Coffee Shop in Silver Lake, another Los Angeles coffee shop, did you know that in addition to the concrete tiles we already make, we’re happy to work with you to make a custom pattern?  We’ve done this many times before and these tile designs then end up in our permanent collection.  We can work from a photo, like we did when we created our Tunis concrete tile, or from a sketch, or we can flesh out an a pattern from an idea.

The first question we have when we look at a design to translate it into a cement tile mold is: how do we break it up?  In making concrete tiles, you’re creating pieces that need to fit together, like a puzzle (in the photo below, check out where the grout lines are in Civil Coffee’s floor tile design to understand how the pattern is broken up).  If we’re looking at a tile design, whether a concrete tile design or a porcelain tile design, it’s usually easier — those tile patterns are created to have a natural repetition. But, as in the case of the Tunis cement tiles, we were looking at a photo of actual stars in the sky. In the mold we came up with, you get almost the whole star, but not quite, and it carries over into the next piece.

Granada Tile Cement Tile At The Cape, A Thompson Hotel, in Cabo

 

Just say the word Cabo to us these last few weeks and we’ll say YES!  Even usually sunny and warm Los Angeles, one of our ports of call, has been cold and damp.  So we have to say we’re jealous of our Buniel cement tileScreen Shot 2016-02-02 at 3.52.31 PMIt can be found throughout The Cape, a Thompson Hotel in Cabo, basking in the warm glow of the Caribbean sun. The white, teal and mist concrete tile not only echoes the beautiful blues of the sea but — one of the secrets of concrete tile floors — feels soft as velvet on your feet (And did you also know that, because of encaustic tile’s properties, they’re less likely to be slippery when wet. That’s because concrete tiles are porous so they absorb water.)

Granada Tile At Proof At The Four Seasons Hotel In Scottsdale, Arizona

If you’re heading to Arizona, check out Proof at The Four Seasons in Scottsdale, Arizona. The restaurant serves nostalgic American classics like fried green tomatoes, shrimp and oyster po’boys, and chicken n waffles alongside milkshakes, malts and floats cranked out from an old fashioned soda fountain.  For something a little stronger, the bar highlights small-batch and craft-distilled American spirits as well as 50 microbrews, including six draught  beers.

The space, designed by Paul Duesing Partners, highlights the area’s history as a stagecoach hitching post and the romantic and untamed spirit of the Wild West.  There’s even a railroad track running perpendicular through the dining room!

GET THE LOOK: Rue Magazine Predicts That Tile Patterns Are Hot For 2016

GET THE LOOk of the cement floor tile in this living room using Granada Tile’s Bucharest concrete tiles in a custom color palette of chocolate, white, silver and blue

When it comes to choices in floor coverings, you know where we stand!  Cement tile, concrete tile, encaustic tile or, to put a French spin on it Carreaux de Ciment.  However you say it, we think that it’s the best flooring out there.  Durable, beautiful, easy to clean and, since it absorbs water, way less slippery than other kinds of tile when used in wet rooms, such as bathroom floor tile, kitchen floor tile and patio tile.  And its decorative qualities mean that it can add a pop of color and a unique spin to your same old, plain old white kitchen when installed as a kitchen backsplash or bring vibrancy to your bathroom walls or your shower floor (even a few scattered in and amongst plain white subway tile will take your space from drab to fab).  So, course, when Rue Magazine predicts that tile is the hot floor trend for fall, we did a little happy dance.

Some of their suggestions:

  • mix it with wood on your floor to lend a slightly industrial feel
  • use it in other spaces besides the kitchen or bathroom.  You know we’re on board with that! We love it used as living room floor tile as in the photo above.
  • use it to blend the kitchen floor to the rest of the rooms in an open-plan style living space.
  • give character to your space.  We agree.  One look at the cement tile floors of Europe will convince you.
  • add a focal feature to a simple room.  A backsplash in a plain white kitchen, a fireplace outlined in cement tile, cement tile installed in the entry way or your home — are all ways to bring life to your space.
