energize this a client's powder room.

A black and white cement tile backsplash, coupled with an uncomplicated pattern or design, exudes not only a feeling of serenity, but also one of simple elegance.

Avente Tile client Laura S. felt her remodeled powder room needed something that was not only graceful, but also something that didn't command too much attention for a small space. The result of her search led to our Traditional Bayahibe C (black and white colorway) cement tile. "Just wanted to send you a picture of the finished powder room. The black and white Bayahibe looks awesome. We just love it!" added Laura.

With its polished finish, and 8"x8" format, this powder room now conveys a feeling of warmth, elegance and timelessness. To further complement the room, colorful accessories can be added on a holiday- or trend-related basis. With such an uncomplicated and versatile palette, the cement tile backsplash in this powder room will remain stylish for decades!

Cement Tile: Floors & Walls

Cement Tile: Floors & Walls

"The principle of the design - the harmony, rhythm and balance are all the same with interior and fashion design." -- Venus Williams

As architecture relates to the structure, facade, and functional elements of a home, office or public building, so too does interior design relate to the aesthetics and livability. As trends and fashion continuously develop, one thing is for certain - classic cement tile patterns will forever evolve around them. With a simple pattern, such as we highlighted above, the element of time no longer exists. Whether you are living or redesigning a vintage 1950s structure, or just one room in your modern home, you can be assured that cement and encaustic tile colors and patterns will forever meld themselves to any style of decor or environment.
