So Many Reasons to Love Cement Tile

You’ll notice their beautiful patterns right away, but cement tiles have less obvious advantages too.

Would you believe me if I told you cement tiles are a lot like checkerboard cake? Hear me out. When you slice into a checkerboard cake, you see alternating squares of chocolate and vanilla goodness. Cement tiles, popular in Mediterranean- and Latin-style spaces, are often highly patterned with geometric and floral designs. So what’s the connection? That lies in how the cake and tiles are made.

Like checkerboard cake batter, cement tiles are formed by hand pouring pigmented cement into decorative molds similar to cookie cutters to separate the colors. When the cement has set enough, the molds are removed and the tile is compressed under 2,000 pounds of pressure. The result is an irresistible work of art for floors or walls. Sounds pretty sweet, eh?
