You get a lot more than amazing good looks with this cement tile. The design trend makes a lot of sense because cement tiles:

  • Provide a powerful design punch that allows homeowners to create a personal statement where it matters most. 
  • Are available in an array of geometric, traditional and contemporary patterns that can be customized with choices, including a palette of 90 colors.
Additionally, these handmade tiles are crafted to endure decades of wear from foot traffic and have a color layer that is about 1/8."-thick. They won't face anything that formidable when placed on a wall except for an occasional melee with grease, vinegar, or wine.
