Installation Equation: Cement Tile Sets the Bar High

No matter where you live (or where your clients might live for that matter), Granada Tile‘s sensational cement tile is right at home. Have a Spanish-style place in Southern California? Well, your tile back splash would look terrific in one of our Echo Collection favorites. What about a contemporary pad in Colorado? Echo Collection favorites would certainly be a jazzy bathroom tile choice. Krista Schwartz, the principal designer and co-founder of Indicia Interior Design and Furnishings, a Saint Paul, Minnesota–based firm, thought our concrete tiles would be a great match for a recent project too. Krista initially discovered the cement tiles after a colleague had run across an image  and shared the photo with her. “I jumped online and ordered samples,” she says. Samples procured, she was ready the moment the perfect project came along, which it recently did—in the bar area of a Minnesota house.

“We wanted a bold pattern to set off the bar area—something to make a statement,” says Krista, who describes her clients as a fun couple who wanted to strike a balance with a tile design that leaned neither too masculine or too feminine. She found it with our Cluny concrete tile design. For Krista and her clients, it was the perfect match to cover a wall in the transitional style space.  Not to mention, “The scale of pattern was wowza with what we needed,” she delightedly adds. We’re delighted to report that Krista and her clients couldn’t be happier with the results—not to mention their guests, who single out the cement tile as a favorite. We’re also thrilled that she’s considering cement tile for future projects too!
