Installation Equation: It


Maybe it’s the gloomy weather that’s making us long for places a little drier and a little warmer. Maybe it’s the January doldrums kicking in right on schedule. Whatever it is, today our thoughts have been turning to Vegas. Not the city (although a little glitz and glamour might go a long way to brightening up this Thursday morning). Nope—at Granada Tile, where we’ve always got cement tile on the brain, our thoughts are turning to our Vegasconcrete tile design from our Echo Collection. We love Vegas for some many reasons. It has a strong geometry that holds its own in any space, but it has a quiet sort of strength. Included in a cement tile installation, it won’t overpower things. Personalize Vegas with any number of color combinations and make it as bold or as simple as you’d like.

 A simple tile design of squares and rectangles, Granada Tile’s Vegas tile design is more than the sum of its parts. Tile photo, Granada Tile.

To dial down the contrast, try using multiple shades of the same color. Try the concrete tile with several blues, a few reddish tones or some greens.

Blue Vegas
 Two shades of blue take the inherent contrast of our Vegas tile design down a few notches, but it still packs a graphic wallop. Tile design, Granada Tile.

As far as tile installation goes, Vegas world is your oyster. Using our palette tool, you can see what an amazing change you can make by switching up the placement of colors or adding more colors to the tile design.

Vegas 3D

You can install groups of four cement tiles at 90 degree angles from each other create discreet pinwheels that add up to a phenomenal kaleidoscope effect best showcased in a large wall tile installation (bathroom tiles, maybe).

With Vegas, there’s really no limit to what you can create. So, if you’re in the market for a new tile backsplash or if your bathroom tile could stand to be replaced, why not Granada Tile’s Vegas tile design.
