Cement Floor Tiles Style Guide: Cement Tile Patterns and Solid Colors

What’s not to adore about Cement floor tiles? Why are patterned cement tiles a staple in home decor?

  1. They’re unique.
  2. They’re versatile.
  3. They’re made with 100% natural, recyclable materials.
  4. And they’re 200% over-the-moon, splendid for home décor.

Let’s hop right into the how, what, where, and why of these swoon-worthy tiles. Vamos!

Is it Cement Tile or Concrete Tile?

Great question. You might see the terms “concrete” and “cement” used interchangeably in floor tile discussions, but they’re technically two different materials.

What’s the difference between cement and concrete tiles?

  • Concrete is made from a mixture of cement, sand, and large aggregates (such as gravel).
  • Cement is an ingredient of concrete. It is also created using sand and cement. Still, it incorporates natural pigments and additives like marble powder instead of aggregates. 

(We sometimes refer to our Cement tiles as Concrete Tiles.)

How Cement Encaustic Tiles Are Made

Our three-layer creation process ensures that each unique, encaustic-style Cement tile we offer is beautiful and durable.

  1. The Wear Layer: We refer to this layer as the concrete tile face, crafted from Portland white cement, powdered white marble, and natural pigments.
  2. The Second Layer: A mortar of Portland cement and fine sand makes layer #2.
  3. The Third Layer: Last but not least, the third layer comprises a porous mixture that stands up to daily wear and tear.

Creating high-quality Cement tiles is both a science and an art. Therefore, it’s essential to go with an experienced supplier that understands this and knows how to get it right.
