Cement Tile Provides a Warm Welcome
When a customer requests a special size for their handmade cement tiles, we are more than happy to assist in meeting their design needs and special requests.
In this case, the customer needed an 8"x8" tile size of the Gran Cordoba Cement Tile pattern for their residential hall and bath. Because this pattern is only available in a 10"x10" format, the cement tile factory created a custom 8"x8" mold. Of course, there was an additional charge for creating a new mold; however, the customer didn't mind the extra charge if it meant they would achieve their design goal.
Further, rather than spending additional money for the border and corner molds, the customer chose the Cuban Heritage Design 250 Handmade Cement Tile 8"x8" Border and Corner Pattern to use with the field pattern, Gran Cordoba.
The colors used in this custom cement tile pattern include:
The customer used the Heritage Pale Green solid color tiles to fill the area outside of the rug. They also purchased strike-off samples of the border, pattern and corner to ensure color placement and design. You can see the entire process, from concept, design, and installation, on our Houzz Gran Cordoba - Luscen Custom Handmade Cement Tile Project entry.

Many Ceramic and Cement Tile Prices will Increase
Due to increases in our costs, we must raise the price on many of our hand painted ceramic and cement tiles. We have not increased prices in over four years. The price increase is necessary for us to continue to provide the quality tiles and customer service you expect. We have avoided raising our prices for as long as possible, but we can no longer prolong the inevitable.
The new prices will be shown online and go into effect on September 14, 2013. The lines that will be increased are shown below. We will honor the current prices for any orders placed between now and September 13, 2013. Take advantage of the lower prices now if you were considering a purchase.
