The year is flying past—can you believe summer has already begun? Since the month is just about over, you know what that means: A chance to check in on Granada Tile‘s Share Designs page to see what our clients and other concrete tile lovers have been playing with this month. As you’ve probably guessed, there has been a lot going on. As always, we’re delighted with the creativity and vision you bring to the table, and we hope these ideas will spark an idea for your next concrete tile installation project. A fun take on our Europacement tile design by Theresa Hanson really delighted us. She opted for white circles set against a dark blue cement tile ground, giving the tile design a nautical flair (maybe we’re just still giddy over the nautical-theme layout our Stripes group appeared in). We could easily see these cement tiles used for bathroom wall tiles. We could also imagine pairing it with one of our stripe tile designs for a really dynamic tile installation.
We loved the sun-baked hues that Zeidy Hall chose for a riff on our Santander concrete tile design. The mustard and terracotta hues especially proclaim lazy summer days and using three colors instead of two really ups the visual ante. Santander is a great choice because it offers so many versatile tile installation options. Place it to create interesting diagonal lines—the colors create a hypnotic, unexpected striped pattern. You can also alternate the cement tiles to create bold diamond shapes.
Finally, no early summer round-up of cement tile designs would be complete without some fresh, summery flowers. For that, we turn to Erin Hoffman, who chose a seasonally apt palette of watery blues and pale green for our 10-by-10-inch Siena tile design. It’s a classic tile pattern, with a design that suggests Renaissance motifs. It would make lovely kitchen tile installation in a more traditional space.
There’s sure to be more inspiration on Share Designs. And there’s more too! This summer promises to be a busy one for fans of Granada Tile’s cement tiles.
