Some of their suggestions:

  • mix it with wood on your floor to lend a slightly industrial feel
  • use it in other spaces besides the kitchen or bathroom.  You know we’re on board with that! We love it used as living room floor tile as in the photo above.
  • use it to blend the kitchen floor to the rest of the rooms in an open-plan style living space.
  • give character to your space.  We agree.  One look at the cement tile floors of Europe will convince you.
  • add a focal feature to a simple room.  A backsplash in a plain white kitchen, a fireplace outlined in cement tile, cement tile installed in the entry way or your home — are all ways to bring life to your space.
