It’s the end of March. Spring has officially been sprung for more than a week. Of course, big parts of the US are still digging out from late season snow storms. With that in mind, we thought we’d check in on Granada Tile‘s Share Designs site to see cement tile photos with an eye towards bright, spring-like patterns and colors to help us all shake off the the doldrums and get ready for warm months ahead. If you’re planning a spring tile installation project, we hope you’ll be inspired by our smashing cement tile designs. Shiva Assef’s interpretation of our Santander cement tile design caught our attention immediately. It’s the perfect scale for any number of tile installations and has a simple, graphic pattern of wide diagonal stripes. We love how Shiva thought beyond basic black and white (a classic nonetheless) and went for a fun red and white. Place it for a tile backsplash or for bathroom wall tile. Lay it on the floor for a bright infusion of color.
Pivoting from geometry to flowers, we fell in love with this very springy take on Montalcino by Kacey Ma. The delicate floral tile design has a fresh-from-the-garden feel. It would be fantastic for a bathroom tiles in a country-inspired space. It could also look terrific outside since its palette is muted enough to blend perfectly with lush surroundings.
Red seems to have been a popular choice to work with this month. We were particularly taken with Erika Smrtova’s interpretation of Athens. We usually see it in neutrals—there’s something about the sophisticated pattern of interlocking circles that seems to lend itself to those tones. Erika went a different direction and opted for red and pops of yellow on a white ground. This would make a bold yet still elegant statement as a kitchen tile backsplash, when you’re looking for something to pop!
