Nuts & Bolts: Creating a Stellar Cement Tile Carpet


To paraphrase the immortal words of The Dude, “a rug can really tie a room together.” But what if you want a carpet that can stand up to heavy traffic and wear and tear, not to mention looks good year in and year out? Have you thought about a cement tile carpet? Granada Tile‘s cement tile designs can be effortlessly incorporated into tile installations to create dynamic, beautiful tile carpets inside and outside. You can go modern or traditional—our Echo Collection of concrete tiles has a little something for everyone. Today, we’ll give you some tips on how to design one your next floor tile project using our layout tool. For starters, you can go really big and bold, designing a tile carpet with a great traditional feel. For example, we used our eight-by-eight-inch Toscano tile design for the main section. A perimeter of our eight-by-eight-inch border tile in Saragosa surrounds. Beyond is another border of solid yellow four-by-eight-inch cement tiles. The finished product almost seems like a carpet you’d see unfurled in a French royal palace centuries ago.

If a contemporary look is more your speed, we’ve got tons of great ideas for those too. In particular, if you use our new Stripes range, you can create a tile carpet for your floor that echoes bold flat-weave carpets. For this one, we used our eight-by-eight-inch Miami tile design, with its thick lines and surrounded it with a band of solid four-by-eight border tiles. It has a great feel and a beachy vibe—perfect for when you want to lighten up a space.
