Installation Equation: Cement Tiles for Fireplaces


The talented clients we work with here at Granada Tile are never short on vision. In their capable hands, they take our cement tiles and use them in inspired tile installations. With summer slowly turning to fall (lately we’ve had a distinct chill in the air at night and the first pumpkins are appearing at the market) we thought it might be the right time to show you one creative way to use our tiles—for fireplaces! For a West Hollywood, California, house, our clients opted for Granada Tile’s Aragon tile design in warm honey and red tones. Against the white walls, it provides a dramatic burst of color, not to mention that it, along with the wood mantel, adds rustic texture to the otherwise spare room. The medieval feel of the tile, too, echoes the stone columns just beyond the windows.

For another client, we provided Echo Collection tiles in a pale gray shade. The fireplace and hearth tile installation speaks to the impact the collection has when just one color is used. As you can see from the tile picture, the monochrome concrete tiles possess a richness and depth of color to them that sets them apart from other tiles and lends outstanding texture to the room.

The designers at BAMO made the most of our custom options in the cement tiles they installed around an outdoor fireplace at Terranea Resort in Los Angeles. In their hands, our Cluny tile design transformed into a polychrome feast for the eyes—and made the complex pattern all the more compelling. Set into the Mediterranean-style decor, it packs a punch and adds a little more heat to the surroundings.
