Cement Tile Spotlight: Getting to Know More of Granada Tile


If you’ve been reading Granada Tile‘s Cement Tile Blog for any length of time, you’ll see that our clients have some favorites from our Echo CollectionFez, of course. Serengeti springs to mind. So do Cluny and Normandy. Of course, these are patterns that are in-stock, meaning something akin to instant gratification for your next tile installation project. But we have dozens of other cement tile design to choose from, from modern to traditional that may be the perfect choie for your next tile backsplash or bathroom tile installation. Today, we thought we’d introduce you to some of these other concrete tiles. Sure, they’re not in stock, so gratification will have to be a bit delayed, but their beautiful looks and versatility will be well worth the wait. First up, we have Istanbul. A graceful arabesque concrete tile design, it traces its roots to the graphic sensibilities of the Middle East and its namesake city. It’s a pared down take, however, meaning it has a level of flexibility suiting it for all sorts of spaces. Have a modern kitchen in need of a bold tile backsplash try it there. It would also be a great choice for bathroom tiles. Customizing its palette will give it added zest—you could go high or low contrast depending on how bold you want to be.

 Though its name, Istanbul, suggests its Middle Eastern design inspiration, the tile design has a modern, pared down quality that makes it a great choice in a range of interiors. Tile photo, Granada Tile.

Interested in going even more graphic, with something that would work in everything from a kitchen tile installation in a house with a Tudor flair to something wildly contemporary? Look no further than Vigo. When installed, this cement tile design offers a pattern of zigzags that’s so popular right now. It’s another great one for experimenting with color combinations, but we’ll have to admit, basic black and white really takes the cake in our opinion.

For a more traditional look, Bilbao can be just the ticket. A pattern featuring a foliate design inside medallions, it also has a compelling, abstract quality. There’s something about it, actually, that suggests Missoni designs. If you’re looking to make a splash, say in an entrance, try covering it in Bilbao floor tiles for maximum dramatic impact.
