Are you a Modernist at heart? Do you thrill to clean lines and minimal pattern? But, every so often, do you wish for a little something extra? An extra bit of detail or curve or flair? If that describes you, then Granada Tile has some cement tiles that bridge the gap between starkly Modern and more fluid looks. Today, we’re delighted to share with you some cement tile design ideas that will add just the right amount of kick to your concrete tile installation. One of our favorites has to be Istanbul, which references classic motifs found in its namesake city. It takes a traditional arabesque design and multiplies it. The result is a pattern of interlocking arabesques, with one rotated 90 degrees. This is a great tile design to experiment with color, since you can create a three-dimensional effect by choosing two similar hues to suggest a background and a foreground.
Ankara gives you a different feel, yet it also blends a pared-down look with a dash of pattern, delivered in a large-scale format. This is just the ticket if you’re looking for something for a concrete floor tile installation, since it would work perfectly installed over a large area. Plus, it’s a fun departure from a more typical square or diamond pattern with a few hints of Marrimekko textile designs in there too.
For sheer fun, it’s hard to beat our Esfahan cement tile design. A lively pattern of circles and pinwheels, it’s another great one to try out color and layout combinations, because it lends itself to so many intriguing ones. What’s more, it has a great midcentury feel to it. We’d love to see installed in a tile backsplash in a retro-feeling kitchen or for walls tiles in a chic, jewel-box like powder room.
Never underestimate the power of a great, graphic cement tile design. It’s the perfect solution when you want to add color and pattern to a space. See for yourself, using our Echo Collection‘s interactive catalogue. [subscribe2]
