Now that we’re in the thick of spring, we’re almost positive that one or two of you out there have thought about doing a new cement tile installation. To get inspired, you can always check out Granada Tile‘s tile catalogues (our interactive Echo Collection catalogue gives you a great place to start, if you’re looking to play with color and pattern), and, of course, there’s Share Designs and its pages and pages of creative takes on our concrete tile designs. If you’re still hungering for inspiration, we’ve got something else for you today. One of our clients has shared tile photos featuring cement tiles from our Echo Collection.
It’s actually two installations—both for outdoor spaces—in a house in Hollywood, California. The house itself is a classic Spanish Revival–style place, where our cement tiles fit in perfectly. For one of the tile installations, our client chose a tile carpet of our Athensconcrete tile design. The cement tiles cover a narrow balcony and look divine against the white-and-black of the house and windows.
The second cement tile installation covers a balcony just off a bathroom and features our Normandy tile design. We love how it complements the bathroom tile installation itself yet announces the outdoor space as separate and equally special. It’s a totally dreamy effect—like a retreat among the trees. Are you inspired? Tell us about your own ideas for a cement tile installation. We can’t wait to hear and see what you’re up to. And, when your project is complete, be sure to send us some tile pictures. [subscribe2]
