Cement Tiles have been around in Europe since the 1850’s but lately, they have gained incredible popularity in the US.
Historically, they were often used in foyer areas.
Really this is quite practical, especially if you are in an area where it snows or rains often.
They are easy to clean and give you the look of a beautiful rug.
Now we are seeing cement tiles a lot in kitchens and bathrooms.
If Better Homes and Gardens is featuring the look, like below, you know it has hit mainstream.
The above look is quite dramatic.
I like it but wonder if it would start to wear on me or make me dizzy while cooking.
I think something calmer in color like this would work better for me.
I love that they can be used in a very dramatic application. They have a worldly, traveled look which is quite appealing.
Or they can be done in a more subtle way. Just adding light pattern and color.
If you don’t want to commit to too much pattern maybe just a small area like a fireplace hearth.
Or maybe just inside the shower niche for a touch of whimsy.
Are you thinking you might want to add cement tile somewhere in your home?
