Get Inspired: Summer Designs


It may be summer—time for vacations, barbecues, the beach and general relaxing, but, if the activity on Granada Tile‘s Share Designs page this month is any indication, people are still thinking about cement tile (they’re people after our own hearts, incidentally). Maybe they’re planning a new concrete floor tile installation. Maybe it’s cement tiles for small bathroom. Whatever the project, there are plenty of fun new ideas to be found there, using concrete tiles from our Echo Collection. The sunny, summery hues Tanya Weintrobe chose for her take on our Monaco cement tile design immediately caught our attention. With its combination of primary colors, the tile installation really pops and would add an incredible dash of life and vitality into any space. A big, bold pattern such as this one would be great for floor tiles—maybe in a small bathroom, where, even on the darkest of winter days, it will lift your sprits.

Designer Karen Vidal has turned to Granada Tile time and again for cement tiles for her company’s stunning projects. We love seeing what she has been experimenting with on Share Designs, and this month was no different. Her interpretation of our Rabat concrete tile design is a delight. She, too, opted for sunny, sun-kissed shades. It would make a lovely addition to a kitchen or a bathroom—just about any place a dose of color and pattern are needed.

Finally, Nuno Campos’s Borga interpretation drew us in from the get-go. Using a range of green and cream shades, he created a tile design that’s understated but still has a strong presence. It’s a great reminder that you don’t have to go for big contrasts and many bold shades to create a unique and original tile design for your next project.
