If you’re remodeling your kitchen, encaustic cement tiles are an excellent choice for any design scheme or style. Discover why and how in this inspirational guide featuring our hand-crafted, eco-friendly concrete tiles. 

Why Encaustic Tiles Are Ideal for Kitchens

Encaustic tile has among the best materials you can use, not just for your kitchen but for any area of your home. These tiles are hand-poured rather than cut, molded, dyed, or painted. As a result, colors never fade and always stay brilliant. They can handle years of heavy traffic with low maintenance when properly installed.

Even better, they are environmentally friendly and contain an abundance of natural resources. Any by-products can be recycled and don’t leach toxic chemicals into the environment. Among all of that, they look fantastic and are completely customizable!

Islands are a widely desired feature in many kitchens. If you’re going to incorporate one in your next remodel, you want it to stand out. Cement tiles look just as great on the sides of islands as they do on walls. The Madesimo tiles around this bar stand out against the light hardwood floors but perfectly complement the gray accents and decor. 

Go for a Stunning Backsplash

Anyone who has ever done a kitchen design knows that a backsplash is everything. It should draw the eye and be a real standout point in the kitchen. This one hammers that home in an ultramodern style that is entirely effortless. The black-and-white zigzag of the Ardoz tiles creates a sense of constant motion that is instantly memorizing.
