Installation Equation: Good Things Come in Small Packages


We’ve talked about Granada Tile‘s Echo Collection‘s 10-by-10-inch concrete tiles for large-scale tile installations and often show you examples of our 8-by-8 collection of cement tiles—a perfect, versatile size that works for floor tile installations as well as wall tile installations. Our four-by-four-inch tile designs are small but mighty (not to mention versatile and lovely) in their own right. Of course, they are a great choice if you’re looking for a just a splash of something different in your overall tile design. When you combine them into a tile backsplash, though, they pack a great punch, especially when the space calls for something a little smaller in scale. One great option is our Maldon tile design. A simple pattern of triangles, you can play with color to match your space and play with the orientation to create a fun, mod wall tile backdrop in your kitchen or bathroom.

For a complete 180, there’s always our Regal Clover tile design. This great cement tile pattern is the perfect choice when you’re looking for a small-scale tile design that has great visual flair and a traditional look. We can just imagine it as the kitchen tile backsplash behind a classic Aga stove.

If you’re tastes run toward the more transitional as we sometimes like to day, Santiago is a good bet. The quatrefoil pattern harkens back to medieval designs, but it’s a pared-down interpretation set against a generous solid ground. There’s just enough going on for it to be visually compelling, yet it’s simple enough to fit in a more modern space.

Be sure to check out more of our four-by-four-inch tile designs from our Echo Collection and experiment with tile installation ideas.
