Cement tiles are a wildly popular design option for floors, walls, and even fireplaces! They are sturdier than ceramic tiles because they are hand-poured, so it won’t fade or chip like hand-painted ceramic tiles. These tiles have an incredibly long life, are low maintenance, and can hold up to heavy use.
Cement tiles have been used everywhere from Amsterdam to Istanbul, Los Angeles, and beyond, and some have held up for a century of use and more. Check out these stunning and stylish encaustic tile collections when you’re redesigning your bedroom and are looking to show it off in your Instagram.
